Just when we thought the Kia lineup couldn’t be any better, we’ve heard the news – the Kia brand is working on a three-row model that we hope to see for 2019-2020. The crossover Kia Telluride (name is subject to change at this point) is set to join the lineup and add a whole lot of style to any customer’s everyday transportation.

As new Kia cars arrive on our lot, we can’t help but start thinking of what next year’s models will hold. The coming Kia Telluride model features a gorgeous design concept and will be that largest and most luxurious Kia SUV crossover to date. With eight seats standard, and possible seven seat options, this model will run on a front-wheel drive setup developed by the automaker.

According to carbuzz.com, it’s likely that an all-wheel drivetrain will be optional and a powerful engine will be required for the hulking model – probably a 3.3-liter V6 engine with an eight-speed automatic transmission. The engine is predicted to get around 300 horsepower, an optimum amount of such a vehicle. We can only imagine the various convenience, entertainment, and safety features that are to come in this beautiful beast.

So, now the only question is when. And, to be honest, we are on the edge of our seats as dealers just as much as you are as customers. We are hoping for a 2019 debut, but only time will tell, and, as they say, you can’t rush perfection.
