In this review, our team here at Feldman Kia will explore the 2022 Kia Telluride reliability scores and how it earned these marks. That way, you can determine if this Kia SUV is a potential fit for you on the Novi, Livonia, and Southfield, MI, roadways.
The position of the Telluride as a reliable ride starts with its manufacturer, Kia. Kia has earned high marks in the reliability arena, ranking the highest among mass market brands in long-term reliability according to J.D. Power.
So, as we delve deeper into the design of the Telluride, you can be sure that reliability was front of mind when Kia constructed this impressive set of wheels.
The Telluride relies on a standard, sizable 3.8L Lambda V6 engine to power it. When you turn it on, this engine will arm you with plenty of muscle, pumping out 291 horsepower and 262 lb-ft of torque. Mated to this engine is an electronically controlled 8-speed automatic transmission, which will work to seamlessly distribute this force for effortless acceleration.
Together this powertrain is not only strong, but also agile, ready to provide a consistently efficient commute. Further, this Kia earns a standard EPA-estimated 20-city/26 highway MPG.*
For enhanced versatility, you can also add the available Active On-Demand All-Wheel Drive system. When equipped with this, you will be ready to tackle even the trickiest terrain, perfect for those brisk Michigan winters.
Of course, you will want your Kia SUV to provide a secure ride, keeping you and all of your occupants safe on the go. The Telluride will do just that, offering a slew of innovative driver-assistive features.
For example, the Telluride comes standard with Forward Collision Warning and Forward Collision-Avoidance Assist. These systems use sensors to monitor the roads ahead and are able to detect possible obstructions and help you brake to avoid them should they present themselves.
Other standard driver-assistive features that you will find inside include…
