2024 Kia Telluride Tow Package & Options

If you want to take advantage of this SUV’s power, you’ll need to equip the accessory Kia Telluride tow hitch. Our parts department can set you up, and we’ll even install the feature in-house.

This is just one of the Telluride features that can help you get more done in Arlington or Weatherford. Be on the lookout for each of the following when you’re configuring your vehicle or shopping on our lot:

  • You can access a Tow Mode setting by choosing one of the following trims: EX X-Line, SX X-Line, SX X-Pro, SX Prestige X-Line, or SX Prestige X-Pro.
  • X-Pro models can tow more than the other trims in the lineup. That’s because these configurations come with a heavy-duty engine cooling system (and all-terrain tires).
  • You might not always be towing over smooth pavement. An available feature like All-Wheel Drive is a smart choice for any adventurous driver.
  • Ground clearance can also be helpful here. You’ll get 8.4 inches if you choose an X-Line or X-Pro model, or 8.0 inches if you choose any other trim. Either way, there will be very little that can hold you back.
