Kia Telluride continues to enjoy popularity in the North American market. Due to the high demand, a spokesman for Kia Motors in the United States calls Telluride, a combination of the meaning of’Sell’ in English and the name of the vehicle. Despite the pandemic of Corona 19, many dealers in the United States have been told that customers are waiting to purchase Telluride, and as the vehicle supply cannot keep up with the demand, it is being told that the dealer is making the dealer to conduct an auction or pay more than the demand.
About a year ago, Telluride’s brother, Hyundai Palisade, also had to pay more than $10,000. It said there was a case of having to pay more than about $10,000.
A California-based Kia dealer told the customer that they had to pay a premium of about $10,000 ($11.26 million) for a vehicle that added several packages to the Telluride’SX Trim’ to purchase the vehicle. The 2021 Telluride SX trim plus the Prestige package, the AWD system, and the Nightfall package cost about $50,000 (56.3 million won). I had to buy telluride at a cost. Paying upfront and overpaying for the purchase of a vehicle is not a new phenomenon, but it is rare to pay more than Kia and Hyundai, and automakers continue to curb this practice, but in the North American market, dealers are private businesses. It is known that the manufacturer lacks authority to prevent this.
If you buy Telluride in the U.S. for about $60,000, the price is higher than the Premium Plus trim, the middle trim of the Audi Q7 45TFSI, which is sold for $57,200 (64.4 million won), and the BMW X5 40i is priced at $59,400 (6.88 million won). It is similar to the SDrive model. What’s interesting is that since Telluride first went on sale in 2019, it’s still going to be paying more than that. As Kia Motors released the Telluride Nightfall Edition, which gave a black point to the exterior of the vehicle last year, it is getting a good response, so the supply shortage of Telluride is expected to continue in the US for the time being. A total of 75,129 tellurides were sold in the U.S. market last year, up from 58,604 units sold in 2019.
