To go with its rugged look, all but the base Telluride come with built-in roof rails, while the cross rails will cost you extra and are not automatically a part of the car.



To add some more info, I looked at the official specs for the Telluride and it looks like the roof rails come standard on both the S and EX trim levels, but not on the LX. On the S and EX the roof rails come in a silver finish.

Roof rails also come standard on the top-level SX trim, but come in a chrome anodized finish, to match the detailing on the rest of the car.

The cross-rails can be added on when you order the car for an additional $310.

It likely won't matter, but i also wanted to point out that the roof rails do raise the overall height of the vehicle. Without roof rails the Tellride is 68.9-inches tall, ad when you add them it grows slightly by 0.4-inches to 69.3-inches

I recommend getting the cross rails from Kia direct. Most of the aftermarket sites I've found charge more for them.

On KiaStuff.com they are going for over $400.

OEMKiaSuperstore also charges around $400

KiaStuff does, however sell additions like a bike rack or ski/snowboard rack.

Here's a helpful video from Kia about their roof racks

I'm going to get thule cross bars. Normally factory cross bars are too light weight to handle any serious load, hopefully they'll be available soon.
