2025 Kia Telluride.

Only a little bit of rumors and info have surfaced about the next-generation Kia Telluride.

It is rumored to be introduced at the end of this year, after the new 2025 Hyundai Palisade. While we’ve seen about 8 million spy shots of the new Palisade, I haven’t seen any photos of the new Telluride yet. Which means it could come later next year instead.

What we know for sure is that it will be an all-new design, inside and out, just like the 2025 Hyundai Palisade. And just like its Hyundai cousin, the 2025 Telluride is expected to offer a smalller Turbo V6 engine, as well as an all-new 4-cylinder Hybrid powertrain as an option.

Kia has already mentioned the next Telluride will be offered as either a regular hybrid or a PHEV, but not both. Since the next Palisade is expected to offer a regular Hybrid option with a 2.5 Liter engine, I guess a PHEV model is off the table.

So far, the Mazda CX-90 is the only 3-row SUV offered with a PHEV powertrain in the US. I guess the next Telluride won’t be a direct competitor, it will just try to squeeze a bit more miles out of your expensive gallon of gas.

If you want a big Kia with an electric drive, they still have the EV9.

  1. That render of what it could look like has almost sedan like proportions morphed with SUV ones.

  2. There are more 3 row plugin SUVs than the Mazda. They might have small third rows, but the XC90, Sorento , and Outlander offer plugin hybrids.

  3. Another day, another Hyundai/Kia. Nothing says ‘disposable’ like the litany of revisions from H-K-G. They’re also completely forgetable.
