TORONTO: Following a debut year defined by phenomenal sales success and an unprecedented number of industry accolades (including Best Large Utility Vehicle in Canada for 2020 by AJAC, 2020 World Car of the Year, and receiving the Design Innovation Award from ALG), Kia’s bold and capable Telluride ups its appeal with a special Nightsky Edition trim.
The Telluride Nightsky Edition will take its place at the top of the Telluride lineup, based on the SX Limited trim level.
In addition to a number of gloss black elements that give the Telluride a more aggressive and stealthy character, the Nightsky Edition is offered on seven eye-catching exterior colors including Glacial White Pearl, Everlasting Grey, Gravity Grey, Ebony Black, Sangria, Dark Moss, and the newly added Black Copper, an all-new color for the Canadian market.
Imagined at Kia’s design studio in California, the Telluride Nightsky Edition provides comfortable seating for up to seven with captain’s chairs in the second row, a powerful 291-hp 3.8-liter V6, standard active on-demand all-wheel drive[i], and an inspiring view of the world, whether you’re exploring a concrete jungle or a real one.
Telluride claims a more daunting presence with blacked-out details and finishes. Nightsky Edition exterior elements include:
• Newly designed radiator grille in black finish (Nightsky Edition exclusive)
• Unique 20-inch wheels in black finish with black lug nuts and center caps (Nightsky Edition exclusive)
• Gloss black roof rails
• Gloss black greenhouse trim/ lower door side molding
• Gloss black skid plates
• Gloss black front bumper side air duct garnish
• Gloss black emblems, including unique “Kia” logos
• LED headlamps and fog lamps with black inner bezel
