I just saw this interesting article that says Kia product planned discussed offering the brand's twin-Turbo V6 in tbe Telluride.
https://carbuzz.com/news/twin-turbo-v6-discussed-for-kia-telluride

Right now in the Stinger it makes
365 hp and 376 lb-ft of torque. And in that car it goes 0 to 60 mph in 4.7 seconds.
In the larger Telluride it should deliver 6.5 seconds at least.

So my question is, would you pay for this engine as an option? And how much more?

Maybe 2k?

I wouldn't...it's a family hauler, t doesn't need to go that fast. 7.1 is already great for this type of vehicle. If I want to drive spirited, I'll take the Stinger or Mustang.

I would. My one pause in considering trading my Atlas for the Telluride is that the power delivery of the Atkinson Cycle V6 is not a step forward and can even feel underpowered at times based on my fairly long test drive. I would absolutely pay a premium for a GT model or something of the sorts that had all of the SX features with a 3.3 Twin Turbo powerplant and maybe some styling differentiation. Dual (symmetric) exhaust outlets and some dechroming would be great as well!
