- Pricing for the 2023 Kia Telluride starts at $37,025 and ranges up to $54,120.
- X-Line and X-Pro packages are new to the lineup, with the latter adding all-terrain tires and a higher tow rating.
- The updated models will start arriving at dealerships this months, Kia says.
The Kia Telluride’s refresh for the 2023 model year brings new features, fresh styling, and additional trim levels, but the updated SUV’s increased pricing means it’s not quite the amazing bargain it once was. The starting price for the base LX model rises $2300 to $37,025, and some trim levels are up by as much as $2900 compared with last year. Several versions of the three-row crossover now top $50,000, including the off-road-oriented X-Pro that’s new for 2023.
The X-Pro upgrade, which costs $2395, is available only for the all-wheel-drive SX and SX-Prestige trim levels. It adds 18-inch wheels with all-terrain tires and increases the tow rating to 5500 pounds. The X-Pro also includes the increased ground clearance and styling tweaks of the more appearance-minded X-Line package that costs $2195 on the EX and $1395 on the SX and SX-Prestige.
Front-wheel drive is standard on all versions of the Telluride except for the $51,725 SX-Prestige, which comes with AWD. The S starts at $38,925, the EX at $42,625, and the SX at $46,825. All-wheel drive is a $2000 option on these trims. A 291-hp 3.8-liter V-6 and eight-speed automatic transmission remain standard across the board. New standard features for 2023 include a larger infotainment screen, a digital gauge cluster, and additional driver-assistance features.
Kia says the 2023 Telluride will start arriving at dealerships this month.
