Kia Telluride Towing Capacities

The Kia Telluride is another new mid sized SUV that popped up in 2020 and I found it when browsing through the various kia models and noticed that some people were curious about what they were capable of towing.

The Telluride data was pretty straightforward and easy to read and I posted the towing charts I found from the owner's manuals to prove that. Let's get into it!

The owner's manuals have a ton of information in them related to towing and I just posted the maximum towing limits of the Telluride. Other aspects related to towing like: break in periods, towing uphill and GCWR stats are other helpful info that are talked about in these manuals and worth a read.

2020 & 2021 Models:

The 2020 and 2021 Kia Telluride's towing capacity was either1,650 pounds or 5,000 pounds, depending on the trailer you had equipped.

The two towing specs for the Kia Tellurides were listed for trailers that had a brake system (5,000 pounds) and ones that did not (1,650 pounds).

Since the trailer that you had equipped was the only real determining factor for towing capacity, it really makes it easy to determine the correct towing capacity without the hassle of comparing engine options, axle ratios and 2WD vs 4WD configurations, like I often see with other vehicle manufacturers.

I posted the 2020 and 2021 towing charts I found for the Tellurides and they were similar in regards to the capacity numbers but the maximum tongue weights were different and is why I posted both charts.

Resources For The Kia Telluride:

I tried to provide links to the Kia Telluride's owners manuals where I pulled the towing charts and data from but I noticed that the links were the same, so you will have to view the manuals via Kia's website to view them instead...
