One of the most significant updates for 2023 is the addition of the X-Line and X-Pro models that add more capability and ruggedness to the Telluride. This includes increased towing capacity with Tow Mode, improved ground clearance, all-terrain tires, raised roof rails, and Downhill Brake Control.

Design changes include the exterior’s front and rear fasciae, elevated lighting, and bolder wheels. On the inside, the refreshed cabin has a more advanced dashboard and center console. The newly available 12.3-inch panoramic display screens are futuristic and come with standard navigation. Additional tech upgrades include a standard Wi-Fi hotspot, a larger multi-color head-up display, and an available digital key that is compatible with iPhone, Apple Watch, and Samsung Galaxy smartphones.

Of course, the 2023 Telluride also maintains its class-leading interior roominess.

While no official release date was announced for the 2023 Kia Telluride, many have presumed that it will arrive before the end of the year. We’ll keep you posted on any additional updates from the automaker.
