Upcoming 2019 Kia Telluride Carriage Kia


Serving Gainesville, Toccoa, Jefferson, and Cumming, GA


The 2019 Kia Telluride promises to be a cutting-edge, full-size SUV that pushes technological boundaries without compromising luxury. Telluride is a three-row, seven-seat hybrid vehicle with a muscular, upright stance and unique rear-hinged back doors that open in tandem with the front doors to a 90-degree angle for ease of entry. The first two rows are fitted with four black-leather captain’s chairs, behind which sits a folding three-seat bench. The middle seats recline nearly flat and feature fold-away footrests for ultimate comfort.


Telluride is a Plug-In Hybrid Electric Vehicle (PHEV) that makes 400 horsepower while returning 30 mpg on the highway. The powertrain is transversely mounted and powers an advanced all-wheel drive system with 22-inch, five-spoke wheels. The exterior features a huge tiger-nose grille, horizontal LED indicator lights, thin vertical taillights and recessed quad-LED headlamps. Exciting, functional design incorporates hood scoops, dual exhaust tips and a polished-metal skid plate.


Interior features include a large sunroof, fingerprint-activated push-button start, a seven-speaker Harmon Kardon audio system with wireless headphone and wirless cellphone charging. On the gee whiz front, Telluride has Smart Sensors embedded in the captain’s chairs that monitor and report passenger health information. The information is visible on interior door-panel viewscreens which are synchronized with an energizing Light Emitted Rejuvenation System — residing in a wing-shaped ceiling-mounted LED panel — that treats jetlag. Another futuristic feature is Swipe Command, a touch-sensitive interactive band mounted on the second-row console that allows passengers to use swipe gestures to select media. In a nod to future manufacturing techniques, the vehicle’s steering wheel, door panels and dashboard are fabricated by 3D printers.
