The gloves came off at SEMA 2018 with a sneak peak at modified versions of Kia’s new mid-size SUV, the Telluride, before its release in Spring 2019. Built like a beast but with thoroughbred handling and performance, the Telluride can carry up to 8 passengers on the road or off. Visitors were wowed watching modified Tellurides1 tackle a series of extreme off-road obstacles at the special outdoor track. Once inside on the SEMA floor, they got to see the Brandon Maxwell custom Telluride2 from New York Fashion Week, as well as the Red Bull 2019 Forte drift car3, and even a tricked out Stinger GT from Australia’s Queensland Police4 fleet of high-speed pursuit vehicles. It was an event to remember, and one we hope you’ll join us for next year.
A bespoke version of Kia’s largest and most refined SUV—the upcoming all-new 2020 Telluride—made its debut at fashion designer Brandon Maxwell’s New York Fashion Week (NYFW) show. Influenced by Maxwell’s Texas-inspired runway collection, the ranch-ready Telluride prototype with saddle-like leather accents proved rough and refined can coexist seamlessly. If you missed Telluride at NYFW, see the production vehicle debut in Detroit at the North American International Auto Show before it conquers showrooms in Spring 2019.
