Have they announced the weight yet?
I was comparing the specs with the Sorento V6, and engine power specs are quite similar. I would have expected more, given that this is a rather larger vehicle:
Sorento vs Telluride
3.3 L V6 vs 3.8 L V6
290 hp vs 291 hp
252 lb/ft vs 262 lb/ft
4100-4350 lbs AWD vs ???? (probably at least 4500, likely more)

I sure hope it has a meatier torque curve, because HP is basically identical, and 10 lb/ft of torque isn't much of a difference, especially if the Telluride ends up being 400 lbs more. They're making a good business case for the Sorento.

Edit: I see the weight on the specs page: 4255-4482 lbs. So 100-150 lbs more than equivalent Sorento. That's not too bad, considering the size increase.

Looking at the features, it looks like it lacks some of the standard Sorento luxury features in trims lower than SX like soft touch surfaces, SS skid plates, etc. Also it doesn't get R-MDPS at all. It also doesn't get the Palisade's 12" fully digital gauges and power 3rd row seats.

So clearly they plan to market Sorento as a luxury MDX/QX60 competitor whereas Telluride more of a mainstream competitor while keeping its price low. This is going to eat up Sorento sales and it might get discontinued. I will hold on to mine and might just get Telluride/Palisade instead of a minivan.

On the other hand I also see they removed many standard features from the Sedona.

I am super pissed that the black wheels are not available in Canada. We are looking for exactly what this vehicle offers. But I can drive around in a vehicle with 5 heart shapes on each wheel. Once you see them that is all you see.
And what is with the limited interior colors. I wanted the SX with Premium package. But can't get past those awful wheels. Come on Kia. Give Canada the Black wheels. Why are we getting a down grades vehicle?
