2024 Kia Telluride Starts at $37KJune 27, 2023
Kia has released 2024 pricing for its popular Telluride 3-row SUV, which starts at $37,335 for the base model LX.
Even the LX comes fairly well-equipped, with standard equipment such as blind spot monitoring, forward collision prevention, and lane keep assist. One feature that is not standard, however, is all-wheel drive, a $2,000 option.
Last year was the Telluride’s first mid-cycle refresh, and it came with a bunch of visual and interior enhancements. You can expect all of that to carry over, but Kia says that amber daytime running lights are found across the 2024 lineup. Under the hood is the same 3.8-liter V6 engine paired to an 8-speed automatic, channeling all 291 horsepower and 262 lb-ft of torque to the configured drive layout.
The next three trims—S, EX, and SX—also come standard with front-wheel drive. The S trim starts at $39,255, followed by the EX at $42,995 and the SX at $41,155. Same deal here—AWD adds another $2K to the price tag.
In order to get standard all-wheel drive, you have to either opt for the top SX-Prestige trim, or get one of the various X-Line and X-Pro models. These trims add a more rugged, off-road focused aesthetic to SX-Prestige, SX, or EX trims (the latter only as an X-Line), with black exterior trim. Expect the SX-Prestige to start at $52,055, with the range topping SX-Prestige AWD X-Pro starting at $54,550. The first “X” model, the EX AWD X-Line, starts a bit less at $47,250.
When the Telluride was first released in 2020, it won our Drivers’ Choice Award for Best Large Utility, along with its Hyundai Palisade twin. We also tested an updated 2023 Telluride in X-Pro trim, and concluded it was the Telluride to have.
