Driven: The 2023 Kia Telluride X-Pro Moves the Needle Slightly

Is the X-Pro gon’ give it to ya off-road?

Most of our time was expended powering the wheel of the X-Professional in SX Prestige guise, which is fundamentally the most completely loaded Telluride you can get with a price tag tag that ideas north of $55,000. It is really finest to consider of the X-Line as an appearance offer (not to be bewildered with the nearly much too likewise named X-Professional design), as it comes with a different front grille, roof rails and 20-inch alloy wheels.

Both equally trims appear with a .4-inch increase in ground clearance, but that only raises method and departure angles by .7 and .6 levels, respectively. That is just not more than enough to get the Telluride over any obstructions you should not be trying in this car or truck anyway, and the X-Line’s 20-inch wheels appear shod in the similar all-period tires as the typical products. Kia says the traction control has been modified for both of those variants, but it was by now rather excellent. As well as, if you opt for all-wheel travel, the Telluride will come with a locking centre differential in any case.

Only the X-Pro provides any tangible achieve in off-road effectiveness, thanks to its all-terrain tires that give it some extra grip. But on the mild off-highway course we set the Telluride by, I didn’t come upon something the conventional Telluride wouldn’t have been capable to do just as well. For any type of fireplace highway or dirt path main to a campsite, an all-wheel-drive Telluride (X’d up or not) remains extra than capable.
