Is the 2021 Kia Telluride EX Worth the Hype? | CAR MOM TOUR

Joylandi 10-Fev, 2021
Today I take a look at the 2021 Kia Telluride EX. This has been an insanely popular car since its release in the Spring of 2019. It gives me Range Rover vibes with a Kia price tag and I am a huge fan. The Telluride is currently being sold over MSRP due to the high demand and popularity.

What do you think? Is it worth the hype?

  • I’m switching from my ‘19 Highlander and still can’t believe I’m considering a Kia🤣 But this Telluride is niiiice🤷🏽‍♀️😍

  • Thank you for the awesome review! Went and bought this model right after! I’m extremely happy with it

  • Could you do a tour of one with the bench option? Would like to see if 3 across would work or not.

  • Will you be doing a review on the Kia Carnival?

    • you can find my carnival tour here! uzfire.info/camera/video/qoS8Z2OKwNZ2q3c

  • I’m looking at buying this car gently used in about 5 years or so. But my fear is because this model is so new, the demand will be high and I won’t save much buying used! It looks amazing, though.

  • My husband drives a GMS Yukon. Agree. 👏🏻

  • I picked up my 21 SX Prestige NFE in wolf grey about a month ago and I’m obsessed. Also I’m a tall mom of three children

  • Jorge you don't speak just listen

  • Car dad here. Love your reviews, thank you!

    • Glad you like them! thanks for watching!

  • Hello there! Loving your videos! Thank you! Was wondering if you can make a video about Telluride 2022 please😘

    • Yes please! And please show if 2 boosters will fit in third row

  • some minor issues: There should be 2 or 3 USB-music connections. There is only 1. The phone charger is not long enough for a galaxy 10 to lay flat and engage. There is no turn signal warning like when one makes a slight enough turn insufficient to release the turn signal. Otherwise this has been a superb purchase.

  • Love your content. Can you review the GMC Acadia

  • The driving assists and park assists are so good

  • Can you please review the 2022 Nissan Pathfinder? :)

    • She just posted it today 😊

  • I would like to see a review on the Subaru Forester

  • Can anyone comment on what this would be like for kids in an infant car seat, front facing car seat, and a booster? Would a stroller fit in the back?

    • We test drove the Telluride recently with all of the 3rd row seats up and it fits a baby trend double jogger

  • We're leaning toward this more than Palisade. So going for test drive soon😊

  • Thank you so much for doing these. You missed to include that when you stand in front of the trunk the gate opens by itself! 🤩 I will be turning in my lease soon and looking to get into this one next. So much luxury for the value!

  • Do you prefer the Telluride or the Palisade more?

  • This dad loves your car reviews, and although my children outgrew infant carriers, I have one that uses a booster. This turned out to be a problem with my brand new Kia Telluride because it’s nearly impossible to latch a seatbelt over a booster. I tried a Clek and Chicco to no avail. The dealer suggested a seatbelt extender. Do have any solutions in your bottomless bag? Thank you!

  • Is the option next to the chocolate interior tan?

  • On my telluride I love the quiet mode ... my kids watch their stuff in the back while I listen to my music! Never was able to do that in any vehicle!

  • hmmm. I checked out the Telluride recently and I wasn't sure ... I went in thinking I was going to like it but when I sat in one I was a bit let down. First of all, I'm 6'2" and I currently drive a Honda Pilot 2011, which I love. still. I do not like the current Pilot model so I am waiting for the re-design; assuming I have the patience to wait. So, compared to my 2011 box on wheels, the Telluride felt smaller, compact and even the steering wheel felt small. I didn't test drive it so maybe that could have been a game changer. One thing I had to wrap my head around was the push button start... since I"m driving a 2011 I still use a standard key; Culture Shock! What are your thoughts on the Honda Pilot? I know there is a re-design coming for 2023 and I hope it returns to the SUV look that current competitors have returned to (chevy, GMC, Ford). I do like the design of the Traverse and 4Runner is still on the menu. I don't want to go too school bus size like the larger SUV's. So, I'm either holding out for the re-design OR I lose my patience and choose the next best thing.... BTW I enjoy how your review and the reviews of Raities Rides grade on the cup holders and the other nooks to place random stuff.

  • 3 to 10k over MSRP - I’M OUT! Like the Highlander better with it’s digital mirror.

  • You need to do a Range Rover with third row review

  • I’d love to see a review of the Carnival.

  • Very cramped inside. Bad visibility and lots of road noise. What are you talking about?

  • Is this glacial white or snow white?

  • I loved this video, such a nice car! And yesss you’re a toaster too! 😅

  • Another great video, now, why on earth people are paying over the stickers? How stupid IMO.

  • Kelly Is it worth 10k more than sticker

  • I love mine, I have a 2020, when they first came out. It is awesome. I have had a lot of people ask me about it. Love Love it. and it is the cousin to the Palisade. But the Palisade cost more money and it is not as ecnomical. The Teleuride is #1 is safety rating.

  • Would love to see a Honda Pilot review!!

  • Love my SX!

  • Nice telluride......!!👍👍😍

  • I have 2 teenagers and a preschooler. My 15 year old son likes to hide in the back row so he can do his own thing and I love that this looks roomier and has the usb ports. Your video may have sealed the deal for me....I want this car.

  • Cheesy review by the way! Can you let us know which actual white paint job this Telluride has, glacial white pear, or Snow White. Thanks !

  • Just ordered ours 😭😭😭 so pumped

  • The quiet mode is such a good idea!

  • Camera guy is more on you than the stuff you’re talking about. I want to see the storage in the door and the Center console.

  • Wow I love Telluride but selling at least $8k more than MSRP at any market. I guess Highlander would be my next SUV.

  • I wouldn’t pay higher than MSRP. I’d wait until the car value depreciates.

    • I’m sure they are counting on the sucker that would come in and take the bait 😂

    • We left the dealership yesterday after they quoted us $5000 OVER MSRP for the base price of the vehicle. We said bye bye.

  • mama needs a bit less coffee 😂 --- otherwise, great review! 👏🏻

  • Not a parent but a car guy, it’s refreshing to see cars being reviewed from this point of view. Keep it up!

    • As a husband and a father I appreciate your point of view. instead of being obsessed with 0 to 60 times and slalom runs, you actually comment on things that parents need but also things that everyone uses like cell phone storage and How some manufacturers don’t know how to make a decent cup holder. Most of us drive on straight flat Roads. . ride is going to be much more important than sporty handling. We all love the commercials where these things are riding through these incredible Swiss Alps but the fact is most of us are sitting in traffic on flat roads

    • I appreciate that! thanks!

  • Just a heads up, you can get the bench in the EX trim! Just not with the premium package - that upgrades it to the captains chairs.

  • How was the car seat install? Some vehicles are a battle to get to the anchors to install the seats properly! Also, can you do the Subaru Ascent next 🙂

  • The third row is a bit too small for the price!!! Go check out the VW Atlas... You can live in the 3rd row! LOL!!!

  • It does look like a Range Rover... wasn’t as big as I thought it would be though. Must say I have a Kia Sorento and love that! Don’t under estimate a Kia! So great for the price!

  • I love your channel! I’m I’m the market for a mom car right now I’m struggling between what I want aesthetics and practicality I’d love to see your review on a Dodge Durango, and an explorer. Thanks again for looking out for us moms :)

  • Love your review as a mom!!!

  • Love the reviews! What’s your pick between the 2021 Atlas and Telluride?

  • Cracking up that you are local. Recognize lindbergh! Thanks for the review:)

  • A EX model is not 41k....add about 7 grand to it. 41k start price is BASELINE.

  • If youre in South Florida, the South Dade Kia of Miami sells the telluride at msrp! Ask for Amanda!

  • My daughter was literally watching Blippi when The Car Mom put Blippi in the storage 😂 it was a funny sequence. I laughed so hard.

  • Telluride vs VW Teramont, Which you recommend the most in terms of comfort for passengers, space, etc?

  • Tanks so much for show the car seat and the seats finally some one that do what us want to see

  • Would love to see the Telluride's competition - the 2021 Hyundai Palisade!!

  • I’m curious to know how people will like this car years from now. I had a Kia Optima not to long ago. Everything on it broke. From the break light never working, to the gas gage and even the screen on my radio went blank. It put a bad taste in my mouth with the Kia brand. Cara can look nice but does the stuff work years later is the real question

    • Also they improve on quality and trying to rebuild their name back up from the past still would be skeptical

    • It has a 10 year/100k mile warranty most people will sell it before warranty is up

  • Amazing car for a Kia not even my Mercedes had these features 🙁

  • Why does everyone have to wait for it? Don't they have them on lot?

    • since its a newer vehicle there arent as many used available so they need to be bought new most of the time. Also, in 2020 production was slowed due to COVID so not as many were made but the demand was still high!

  • We ordered our Telluride yesterday and it should be here within 6-8 weeks! I’m so excited!!!!

  • Enjoyed the review..but can you please speak slower for non native speakers 😃

  • The EX does come with the bench seat also.

  • Glacial white Pearl is the color name! Snow White Pearl was for 2020 models!

  • It is a great value value when you compare it to the price of a similarly equipped Honda Pilot or Toyota Highlander. I priced them all and this one came in several thousand dollars lower. The third row also has more legroom than the Highlander.

  • This SUV has no reliability record. And this reviewer dies not put spaces between her words.

  • We never saw the dash. When you were talking about the dash the camera never moved. i still don't know what the front dash looks like.

  • The 2021 EX comes with the second row bench seats and seats 8. The model you have has the EX premium package which switches from the bench seat to captain's chairs.

  • We ordered our Telluride 2021 Nightsky edition 2 weeks ago and should be received in 6 to 10 weeks from now 😍

    • I just got off the phone with a Kia dealership asking if I built a Kia if I could get it for MSRP. I was told no, that the dealership would still add costs but they would “work with me”. Turn around time for a build is 12-16 weeks.

    • I left a Kia dealership yesterday because they wouldn’t budge off the price of the Tellurides. We looked at a nightfall edition and it was marked $4000 over MSRP. The attitude was if you don’t buy it someone else will. We left because they low balled us on our trade and wouldn’t budge on the Telluride.

    • @tashi neshyang They gave me an estimated price because of the lead time it may be a 2022. i was told all cars on the lot sell for $2k over msrp. Due to the demand, it will be hard to find a dealer that will do any deals let alone sell at msrp. i have been watching Your Auto Advocate on you tube and they did talk about Tellurides and if you were able to get one at MSRP you would be lucky. But at the end of the day, it will be less than a new Lexus RX, which i have owned 5 in the past 15 years so this will be a big switch for me. l have order the SX prestige with nightfall package. i did not go for the tow.

    • @shelley coleman would you mind if I ask, whether or not you paid any amt over MSRP ?

    • @tashi neshyang I ordered mine through the local dealership.

  • We ordered our Telluride 2021 Nightsky edition 2 weeks ago and should be received in 6 to 10 weeks from now 😍

  • I’ve had my Telluride since April 2019. It’s been superb. Highly recommended

  • Kia, telluride We just ordered a 2021 Kia Telluride today a at local dealership and we PAID STICKER. Every other dealership was ask 6-7k over and people were standing in line to buy them at those dealership. The dealership where we bought ours also add a lifetime warranty on the Telluride for NO CHARGE. The only bad thing is a four to six month wait when you order it. Corwin Kia, Springfield, MO check them out for yourself. Talk to Tater yes Tater and Tell them Mark and Dardi sent you. But if you don’t want to then don’t we are not getting any special deal if you do use our name. I told tater I was going to spread the word and I want him to know I did. You just pay Sticker.I want them to get your business because they say we are going to be fair to are customers. Where the next closes dealership with it higher sticker price had a rep from Kia who told us that all local dealers are asking above sticker and people are paying it but he did not mention Corwin Kia..

  • You’re supposed to always have the handle up on your car seat when in the car! It serves as a roll bar in an accident. Please always leave it up!

    • this isn't the case for every carseat, please look it up for your manufacturer

  • This or the Atlas?

  • lol...had me dying..Quite informative and funny.

  • I love my Telluride. The bang for the buck is insane. I stepped up to the SX model because it is pretty much fully loaded. I love the ride, comfort, features, and looks. I get lots of compliments on it. You can't go wrong with it.

    • @polofunkI bought a Kia Carnival lol best vehicle in its class hands down.. I wrong about Kia.. They are making high quality vehicles and well put together.

    • @Shane Persad i can tell you don't know anything about vehicle, Mercedes Benz BMW and Range Rovers has the worst quality out, do your research sad Persad 🤣😂😂

    • @Shane Persad Google Jackass Shane Persad pictures will appear because he's sad you get persad 😂🤣🤣

    • @Shane Persad so you did not even do your research and write whatever you want eh? lmao Telluride was here since April 2019. exactly 2 years minus 1 month. Don't hate the player, hate the game~

  • Comfort of the seating is pretty comfortable 👌

  • You should really try to check out a 2021 CX-9 carbon edition to compare directly to this Telluride EX. They are about the same price and the 21 is nicer than that 2020 you previously reviewed imo.

  • With gas prices going back up, folks might be going back to minivans from gas guzzling SUV's.

    • I have a 2018 Odyssey and get 15 miles to the gallon around town. I don't think there's much of a difference.

  • Nice! Getting mine at the end of March.....got the “S”....got it for $500 under!

    • So you basically paid MSRP and qualified for one of the rebates. I was pretty impressed with the S model though, it had everything you'd need, just missing some of the styling elements.

  • Yes, the mark up is insane. Will need a bigger car for another child in the summer. Hope they have some by then, without the 5-10k mark up.

    • I had the wolf gray nightfall in March 2021 it was totaled in an accident in April I was in love with it however it did lack some features that my sportage had and the trunk space is really small... I am currently unable to find another one but have been shopping a real truck frame because of the increase in price

    • RIGHT!!! IT IS A WASTE OF MONEY FOR A DEPRECIATED ITEM! PERIOD!

  • Do we need to do a gofundme so you can buy a windsock for the mic???

    • just ordered a new mic today!! Trying to figure this whole "youtuber" thing out still lol

  • Have you done an explorer or a traverse? These 3 cars on our list for a family of 5! Haven’t been able to go check them out yet but your videos sure do help!

    • @The_Car_Mom thank youuuuuu!! Love ur content, I just discovered you.

    • I have both a 2020 Traverse and a 2020 Explorer tour on my IGTV @the_car_mom !!

  • I really dig this big, bold, beasty vehicle. If I needed a big SUV, this would be the one.

  • I just passed my one-year mark 2020 Telluride. This vehicle is all about a smooth quiet ride. It is very comfortable and gives you the illusion of luxury. If you want to rock climb. Play in the mountains or tow a boat or anything like that. Look somewhere else God bless.

  • REVIEW THE 2021 MAZDA CX-9!🔥💯

  • REVIEW THE 2021 HYUNDAI PALISADE!🔥💯

  • I love watching your car reviews!! All your reviews will help me look for my future family car! Suggestion for your next review could you do a review of the Cadillac XT6? Thank you for everything you do!!

  • Just ordered me nightfall one last week paid 3500 less than msrp... happy with the deal and excited for it to arrive also got a trailer hitch installed for free..... so basically I'm happy.... I live in Canada so never seen any dealers selling over msrp

  • Yeah, it’s crazy high demand now. My cousin and me went to dealer, he want to get base lx awd, dealer and over 3k msrp price😩😩

    • RIGHT!!! IT IS A WASTE OF MONEY FOR A DEPRECIATED ITEM! PERIOD!

  • This is great! I have watched probably 30 videos of reviews for the Telluride and you’ve mentioned a ton of amenities that no one else has mentioned! Thank goodness for this mom review!

  • Thanks for the EX trim review. The SX is just out of my price range.

  • Please review the GMC Yukon and Chevy Traverse. I love your reviews!!!!

  • I'm picking the Altas over Telluride you get alot with the Altas for less money

  • My fav is the atlas vw.

  • I'm interested in the Nightfall package

  • Could you still access the 3rd row if you have two forward facing car seats (graco 4evers) in the second row? Obviously can’t fold the seats so it would have to be between the captains chairs but I’m wondering how practical that would be...

  • Thank you! A moms review is exactly what I needed!!

  • It just lacks the performance we are looking for. Almost bought one, after my brother bought one. I have a family of four, and we regularly pack up our SUV with camping gear, and head to, Yosemite National Park. We did that with my brother's AWD Telluride, and the vehicle performance was shockingly bad in that situation. We have since decided to look elsewhere.

    • @Kellie Vermillion Hello, Kellie. Since my initial post, we have purchased a, Lincoln Aviator. Performance (400HP/415lb-ft torque), is miles ahead of the, Telluride. The interior is much nicer as well. We actually took a 4500 mile round trip (we are on the West Coast) to Florida just 3 weeks ago, and the vehicle was a joy.

    • Did you end up deciding on a vehicle? I’ve been looking at the Tellurides but I would be using it just as you described so this worries me.
