< h2 > Here's a Roundup of the first Kia Telluride Video Reviews < /h2 >

It looks like these are all from dealerships, not journalists, but I guess that only makes them slightly more biased. Lol

Glad to hear that there is essentially no road noise while driving. Seems like Kia spent the time insulating and soundproofing the cabin properly, bringing a high level of refinement to this segment.

Members of the press are getting Tellurides right now and testing them throughout the Grand Canyon. One example of this is a Cars.com editor that posted the following photo:



and more from other automotive publications

Kia rarely if ever benefits from bias in a positive way. With the Telluride however, they've got all the bases covered and I wouldn't be surprised if it becomes a top seller in the segment for 2019.

Agreed.... even on just looks alone!

Kia brought a bunch of auto journalists to the Gateway Canyon resort in Colorado (lots of youtube videos added in past few days), and from there they drove the Tellurides to (the town of) Telluride (about 100 miles southwest). Fun fact: North of the resort is a rock formation called "The Palisade" and there's also a town to the northeast (east of Grand Junction on I70) called Palisade. So I presume this area was an inspiration for both the Kia and Hyundai vehicles.

So... I usually follow autoweek, their info is decent, no Car and Driver or Road & Track, but there's value to be found.
Can't wait to get some seat time after reading this off-road bit from them:

On the drive back we took a couple-mile detour on a dirt road. The Telluride has eight inches of ground clearance and, in our SX model, it also had all-wheel drive, so you could feel fairly confident going around in the dirt and extending your adventuring beyond what you might try in a sedan, for instance. The dirt road was freshly graded, wide and flat, so, naturally, I switched off traction control and tried a few Scandanavian flicks. While the back end did slide around maybe three inches when really pushed, it was hard to make such a sedate crossover flail.
