While we cannot tell if the prototype has received any changes at the rear, there is still one thing we can be sure of, which is the presence of a new tail lamp finish. Due to the unconventional look of the original design, the overall look is also expected to be toned down for the production model.
The full-size crossover from Kia might arrive sometime this year, or in early 2019
In terms of output figure, as the Telluride concept featured a 3.5-liter GDI V6 engine supported by a powerful electric motor delivering a total of 400 PS, the production model is also expected to be equipped with a potent plug-in hybrid unit.
