Looking at trading in the wife's car for a Telluride. Anyone have or test driven one? [MENTION=12]Bru[/MENTION] - you gotten your hands on one yet? Looks fairly comparable to a GMC Terrain or something similar.

Yes. Twice the size of a Terrain. Good. Buy. Love it.

We need something with more space for the multitude of road trips we go on. Everything I've read sounds decent but I don't always trust everything I read. Will go check one out next weekend.

You can't beat Kia's warranty, that's for fucking sure!

Honestly looking to pick one of these up. Dark green with black rims. You cannot beat 40k for a fully optioned full size suv

As much as I hate to say this, I wish I would have known about their warranty when the wife was looking for a car. She got a GM with the gay 3/36!

Saw a black one on 355 yesterday. Looked clean. The interior and a test drive will decide it for me ultimately.

They're selling very well. Only one the local dealer has that wasn't presold was a base FWD.

I've been driven in a new Sorrento to the airport several times and am impressed with how far Kia has come the last decade.

Upper trims the interior looks fantastic on screen. Haven't seen one in person yet.

If not in a hurry, maybe check out the Hyundai sister SUV when it's out

Looks like a nice SUV for the money . Removing that giant Telluride emblems from the back would be the first mod

This is actually a nice looking SUV. Even for a Kia, not that there really is anything wrong with a Kia, it is sweet.

Plus, pricing is on point for a fully loaded SUV.

Would be nice if they had a "performance" model with a Turbo V6 and tuned suspensions with good performance specs. Either way, would be a great SUV to have.

My wife is interested in this over an explorer platinum. Less money with more features. Pretty awesome.


Nailed it. And more room.

These look great especially the green with black wheels. I just went and priced one fully loaded...these things are priced GREAT!

Only thing I wish it had was a digital dash like the Volvo’s or Audi’s. Guessing that would probably raise the price, but I would pay extra for that. Would make the interior better.

Just looked them up with all the praise in here and looks like a ton of vehicle for the money...


Not bad.


Definitely need to take the badges off it though, the huge Telluride name on the front and back need to go for sure.
