Under the Hood
Telluride is powered by a 3.8-liter V6 engine producing 291 horsepower at 6000 rpm and 262 lb-ft of torque at 5200 rpm, combined with an 8-speed automatic transmission with manual shift mode. Standard configuration is front-wheel drive or an optional electronically-controlled all-wheel-drive system that uses real-time active driving force distribution to transfer torque between the wheels depending on driving conditions. U.S. EPA fuel-economy ratings for front-wheel drive are 20 mpg city / 26 mpg highway / 23 mpg combined, and with all-wheel drive estimates drop a bit to 19 mpg city / 24 mpg highway / 21 mpg combined.
