The first hint on the Telluride came at the 2016 Detroit Auto Show, when KIA showcased the concept. There is now light at the end of the tunnel as the big SUV (big because it is a three-row, eight-seater SUV) will hit the market in 2019, and with that, KIA will have jumped into the production of high-end luxury SUVs.
From the concept to what we have now, a lot of admirable improvements can be witnessed. The Telluride is said to probably feature the front-wheel-drive platform built on the 2019 Hyundai Santa Fe engine and most likely the 3.3-liter V6 engine will be the only engine option especially because of the size of this vehicle.
KIA minds your health and for this reason, Telluride will be fitted with Smart Sensors in the front four seats ostensibly to capture vital health information in real time. Interior door-panel screens display the findings. A Light-Emitted Rejuvenation (LER) system responds with therapeutic light from a wing-shaped, ceiling-mounted LED panel.”
This is a nice distinguishing element at a time when technology is redefining what the automotive industry. When you add this to the fingerprint-activated push-button start. A wing-shaped, ceiling-mounted LED panel, interior door-panel viewscreens, 3D-printed dashboard, door panels, and steering wheel as well as a seven-speaker audio system including headphones, then you see a tech-focused futuristic car that is all round.
If there is one aspect that will do any automaker a lot of good, it is leveraging technology to improve user experience. The KIA Telluride promises to be huge in size and properly articulating technology. The practicality of all this technology is what will finally determine how good it finally becomes.
