2021 Kia Telluride - Still a favorite
In July 2019 I reviewed the then new 2020 Kia Telluride and loved it. This past week I drove a 2021 and still love it. It is simply one of the nicest large-ish SUV.
There isn't much 'new' for 2021 thankfully; I mean why tinker with perfection? Even Kia says there are only minor enhancements for 2021. They are: The towing harness has been upgraded from a four-pin to a seven-pin connector; A remote starter button has been added to the key fob; And LED headlamps are included with the EX Premium Package. There is also a new Nightfall Edition.
I love the name Telluride, it makes me think of the song 'Telluride' by the Nitty Gritty Dirt Band.
|Although I saw almost 19-mpg around town it dropped because I sat with the engine idling listening to music while my wife did a little shopping.|
|The 8-speed transmission has 5 different modes. I used either sport or 'Smart'.|
|There's plenty of room behind the rear seat for your groceries. Need more room? The seats easily fold flat.|
