The leaked images of the Kia Telluride 2019 revealed last week seem to successfully act as a call for the Korean car maker to soon bring it in to the public. And yet, it didn’t take Kia long to make their decision: The Telluride has been officially made its debut at New York Fashion Week this year.

The show car roots the inspiration from the Texas-themed Spring Summer 2019 collection belonging to designer Maxwell. It featured the Lone Star State to breathe the air of the Wild West.

More Texas feel comes from the saddle-styled double-stitched leather and natural wood trims. Plus, the leather details can be found on the grab handles, door panels, and the dashboard.

There are a lot of rustic elements to embellish the cabin while the exterior follows the bold design for a ranch-ready vehicle. It proves to be a challenge taker with the equipment of Burly 265/50R-20 off-road tires, a snorkel for tough-river fording, and a hidden winch.

Still, the Kia Telluride 2019 holds on the custom skid plates and bumpers. To finish off, there comes the customized wood and aluminum roof rack coming with leather straps, working as a great cargo space and also an aesthetic booster.

The show car puts on a deep green coat as the concept unveiled two years ago. The change is the front clip as the spy shots suggested last week. It has a larger grille along with a vertically-oriented headlight configuration. Also, they are the taillights taking a turn in styling to become shorter and thicker.

According to the latest car news, the Kia Telluride 2019 will go into production in Kia’s Georgia plant and due to hit the dealerships sometime in the first half of 2019.

Kia stayed away from any information about the SUV’s powertrain at the show. The only thing we can be sure about is it will be a V6 unit equipped inside.
