Kia Telluride Trim Level Comparison Review

The 2021 Kia Telluride prioritizes consumer satisfaction with four different trim levels- SX, EXl, S, and LX. Each model offers a competitive list of features and technology to enhance the driver experience. For the driver's best interest, we recommend taking every Kia Telluride model for a drive. While each Kia Telluride model comes standard with a 291-hp 3.5L V6 engine, and a 10-speed automatic transmission, there's more to this SUV than what's meets the eye. Therefore we recommend drivers take a brief moment to familiarize themselves with all of the various Kia Telluride Trim Level Features. After considering all of the benefits and rewards that come with each Kia Telluride model, drivers can make a well-informed decision


To save time, we have already put together a Kia Telluride Trim Level Comparison review. Take few seconds to determine which Kia Telluride model is the best for you.
