Three-Row 2020 Kia Telluride Previewed At NY Fashion Show

Kia used the New York Fashion Show runway to preview the 2020 Kia Telluride three-row crossover utility vehicle. Remember last year when Kia brought out the 2018 Stinger to the same fashion show? That car’s striking design fitted the uniquely fashionable NY show but this time, the South Korean automaker is going one step further with a global debut.

The Telluride made its first appearance in New York, months ahead of its debut in Detroit next January. For the Fashion Week, the Telluride was dressed up a bit and wore an off-road gear to give it that adventure-seeking vibe. Beneath all that “camouflage” is the final design of Kia’s upcoming three-row crossover. We’re happy to know that most of the elements survived since we first saw the concept back at the 2016 Detroit Auto Show.

We have seen the recessed square headlights with four LED projectors on the concept. We won’t get this design on the production version but the boxy front end shape was carried over to give the crossover a rugged look. Some other changes include the grille that was widened significantly and the tiger nose design theme that has been relegated to a subtle notch on the top of the frame.

At the back, there is a pair of unique vertical taillights, which are now wider and curve onto the hatch. The rear lights outline the lower edges of the liftgate.

According to Kia, the Telluride will be built at its US plant in West Point, Georgia. The crossover can accommodate up to eight passengers, thanks to its three-row layout. It will be powered by a V-6 engine, but we’re still not sure if that is the only engine option. The machine puts the Telluride above the Sorento, which offers flavors from a four-cylinder engine to seven-cylinder machine.

Why You Need a Bluetooth Scanner For Your Car

We’ve all been here before. You’re cruising around town or the highway and upon glancing at your dashboard, you noticed that some warning lights have turned on. What does it mean?

You have no way of checking it through your phone or the car manual and you don’t have a scanner. Then, just as suddenly, your engine stalled and you’re stuck in the middle of the road and will probably be fined heftily by the tow company.

The ability to diagnose the problem as soon as it appears can save you a lot of money in future repairs. An automotive diagnostic tool such as the Bluetooth scanner from Scan Tool Center connects to your car’s computer system and analyzes the code and information to determine the cause of the problem. In some models, this scan tool center does not only analyze and decode the problem, it also prevents future issues from happening.

A car will exhibit some signs and signals before the problem becomes a persistent issue for the driver. However, the driver will usually miss these signals and will only notice the problem once the car stalled or the car won’t start. By this time, the problem could have affected some other parts of the car and you would have to spend more than you would have normally on a basic issue.

Originally, the problem would have just been a simple cable that needs replacing. By the time the driver managed to determine the problem, the result would have required him to overhaul the whole engine.

The vehicle warning indicators can get confusing at times and though you know what it means based on the car’s manual and the information you’ll find on the internet, a scan tool center would give you a more in-depth look into the root of the problem.

With the proper scanner in hand, you’ll have peace and confidence knowing that your car is in top shape every time you take it out of your garage. It is affordable and it is cost-effective, and it protects your investment for the long term.
