Featured Vehicle - The 2016 Kia Telluride

Kia Telluride

KIA TELLURIDE CONCEPT: Kia is giving a glimpse of a future full-size sport utility vehicle to the general public attending the 2016 Chicago Auto Show, Feb. 13-21. This marks the Windy City debut of the striking Kia Telluride concept that presents a bold vision for a three-row, seven-passenger luxury SUV. A 3.5-liter gasoline direct injected V-6 engine and powerful electric motor produce a total of 400-horsepower, which is routed to all four wheels via an advanced all-wheel drive system. A finger-print activated push-button start triggers the efficient PHEV powertrain. Although the Telluride is purely conceptual, the prototype is based on a modified Sorento underpinning. Although, depending on the average show-goers reactions it could be a potential premium SUV that would be positioned above the current Sorento. Dimension wise, the Telluride is 70.9-inches tall, 79.1-inches wide and 196.9-inches long. That makes the four-door Telluride 4.4-inches taller, 4.7-inches wider, and a considerable 9.5-inches longer than the current Sorento. Created at Kia's California-based design center, the exterior is finished in a unique green paint called Dark Pyrite. Rather fitting because of the Telluride's muscular body, flared fenders, 22-five-spoke rims and Hankook Ventus tires. Styling cues incorporate a larger rendition of Kia's signature tiger nose grille, hood scoops, recessed quad-LED headlamps, prominent horizontal LED indicator lights and a polished metal skid plate below the bumper. From the rear, thin vertical taillights align with the modern design language of the SUV. Within the large four-passenger cabin, Kia's first use of 3D-printed components adds a distinct, modern design element to the dashboard, door panels, and steering wheel. Each seatback has a series of precise diamond-cut openings with embedded smart sensor technology to collect each occupant's vital health information that then can be displayed on the interior door panel screens. Then, via a systematically synchronize light emitted rejuvenation system, a great wing-shaped LED panel installed beneath the oversized sunroof displays a pattern of therapeutic light to treat desynchronizes, or jetlag, and improve the passengers' energy levels.XFINITY wants to make sure you don't miss any of these amazing vehicles by offering two great ways to go home with a prize.
