Engineered to be Confident and Capable
Telluride is engineered to be capable in a variety of driving conditions and provide a driving experience that is enjoyable and confidence-inspiring. Among the many factors that contribute to the Telluride’s composed ride and performance:
  • Atkinson Cycle LAMBDA II 3.8L V6 GDI engine producing 291 horsepower at 6,000 rpm and 262 lb.-ft. of torque at 5,200 rpm
  • 8-speed automatic transmission
  • Four-wheel independent suspension
  • Strong, stiff, and torsionally rigid body structure due to the monocoque shell that is composed of 59.4 perc ent advanced high-strength steel
  • Self-leveling rear suspension. Ride height is automatically calibrated depending on vehicle load to optimise control and stability (optional on EX and SX)
  • Choice of four drive modes – Smart, Eco, Sport and Comfort – each using different settings for powertrain, drivetrain, and steering effort mapping to provide the desired driving experience. In addition to the four regular drive modes, drivers can select from two different settings, Snow and AWD Lock, for specific driving conditions.
  • Available active on-demand all-wheel drive2 helps provide enhanced driving performance by actively distributing torque between front and rear wheels depending on road conditions and driver input. The system utilises electro-hydraulic AWD coupling to precisely activate the multi-plate clutch plate, constantly redistributing the amount of power transferred to the front and rear wheels. During normal driving, power is distributed according to the drive mode selected. “Eco” and “Smart” modes deliver 100 per cent power to the front wheels. “Comfort” and “Snow” modes deliver 80 per cent power to the front wheels and 20 per cent to rear. Sport mode splits the power 65-35 per cent between front and back. “Lock” mode delivers power evenly to all four wheels
  • Standard towing rated up to 5,000 pounds
  • Downhill Brake Control (DBC) maintains a controlled descent on steep roads
