Kia could be looking at adding a full-size crossover to its lineup.
Making its debut at the 2016 Detroit Auto Show is the Kia Telluride concept and we wouldn’t blame you if it reminds you of the Volvo XC90 SUV. Built on a modified version of the Kia Sorento’s architecture, the design study is considerably larger than the Sorento – almost 10-inches longer and nearly five-inches wider. It is also four-inches taller and rolls on a wheelbase that has been stretched by almost an entire 12 inches.

Further enhancing its appearance is a Dark Pyrite Green exterior and 22-inch wheels. Climbing into the cabin, the Telluride concept greets passengers with captain’s chairs in the first and second row. Under the hood of the concept is a 3.5-liter V6 engine paired to an electric motor to provide 400 horsepower while delivering over 30 miles-per-gallon on the highway.
Although Kia claims that it currently has no plans to bring the model to market, don’t be surprised if it arrives in production form in a few years. Until then, you can learn more about the Kia Telluride concept by watching AutoGuide.com‘s first look video below.
