2026 Kia Telluride.

2026 Kia Telluride illustration.

While we’ve recently seen many spy shots of the next-generation Hyundai Palisade, we haven’t seen anything yet about its closely related cousin, the popular Kia Telluride.

The current generation was introduced a few months after the Hyundai Palisade, and logically a new design is due shortly after the new Hyundai. As usual, it will probably use the same powertrains, which for the next generation means a choice of a Turbo V6 or a 2.5 Liter Hybrid.

And yes, there have been a few illustrations already, trying to guess what the next Telluride might look like.

Although Hyundai has already announced the next Palisade will be very different from the current one, no one knows what Kia will do with the Telluride. The Kia version has been more popular in the US than the Palisade and still is. Over 100,000 of them were sold last year (its best year ever). While Hyundai sold almost 90,000 Palisades.

Most of these illustrations show a rather timid redesign, which is the opposite of what Hyundai is doing with the Palisade. I’m sure the new Telluride will be a bit more daring.
