2021 Kia Telluride Towing Capacity and Engine Specs

The Telluride has a maximum towing capacity of 5,000 pounds. As a result, you can rely on it to pull such items as snowmobiles, ATVs, and campers to your favorite spots.

The engine that makes all of this possible is a 3.8-liter V6. See the table below to learn about its chief attributes:

Maximum Output

262 lb-ft

Fuel Economy (FWD)

EPA-Estimated 20 City MPG and 26 Highway MPG*

Fuel Economy (AWD)

As you can see, this engine has your back whether you're tackling steep hills or passing slow-moving traffic. On top of that, you can count on having an ally on your side when it comes to having fuel left in the tank when you arrive at your destination whether you go with the FWD or available AWD drivetrain.


The Reassuring Safety Features Offered by the 2021 Kia Telluride

Another area in which the 2021 Telluride has your back while you're on the road is safety. There are several ways that this first-rate set of wheels instills you with confidence. These are listed as follows:

  • Blind Spot Collision-Avoidance Assist
  • Rear Cross-Traffic Collision-Avoidance Assist
  • Rear Occupant Alert

First, there's Blind Spot Collision-Avoidance Assist. This standard feature uses radar-based technology to keep an eye out for objects in your side and rear blind spots. It's particularly useful when you're attempting to move from lane to lane.

The Rear Cross-Traffic Collision-Avoidance Assist comes standard as well. This one uses sensors located on the rear bumper corners to scan for activity happening behind you when you're backing up. It will warn you when someone crosses into your intended path.

If you often have a small child or pet with you in the back seat, you're likely to appreciate that the Rear Occupant Alert is also included as a standard aspect of the 2021 Kia Telluride. It reminds you to retrieve them once you have arrived at your destination.
