2022 Kia Sorento vs 2022 Kia Telluride

Serving Morrow, GA

With several impressive Kia crossover SUVs offered in the 2022 lineup, there could be a model and trim level that perfectly meets your needs at Kia Atlanta South. The Sorento is a small crossover with three rows, and it continues to be a strong contender in the lineup. The midsize Telluride is one of the newer models in the lineup, but it has already been impressing drivers with its stunning features and capabilities for the last few years. What should you know about the 2022 Sorento and the 2022 Telluride before you make your buying decision?


The Kia Sorento is offered with two powertrains across its many trim levels. The lower-level trims have an inline-four engine mated to eight-speed auto transmission, and the result is the production of 191 horsepower. The top trims have a turbocharged inline-four engine with all-wheel drive and auto-manual transmission. This pairing gives you 281 horsepower. The 2022 Kia Telluride is offered with one powertrain system across its lineup. This is a V6 gas engine connected to an eight-speed auto transmission. With all-wheel drive included as a standard feature, the Telluride gives you control over 291 horsepower.


The differences between the 2022 Kia Sorento and the 2022 Telluride continue through their styling. The Sorento is a smaller model with a bold personality. Its edgy take on Kia’s classic, bowtie-style grille defines this. This grille is accompanied on the nose by a downturned LED light bar that underscores the three-piece headlights. Both the hood and roof are modestly curved. Crisp, prominent accents run through the hood and sides. The 2022 Kia Telluride takes a different path with its style. It has a similar grille shape as the Sorento has, but it is larger to encompass most of the nose. The Telluride’s headlights are stacked, and they are completely accented on the perimeter by an orange LED bar. With a squared-off look and mostly smooth panels, the Telluride is easy to differentiate on the road.


These Kia models have three rows of seating with an extensive range of standard and available features across their trims. Features included or offered in select trim levels of the Sorento and the Telluride include:

  • A dual-zone climate control system
  • Smart device integration
  • Luxurious materials
  • A sunroof
  • A central display screen
  • Driver’s safety aids
  • & more
