Available on the mid- and upper-level EX and SX Telluride trims, the Nightfall Edition package gives the SUV altogether darker vibe in keeping with the industry's various blacked-out "night edition" models. The Telluride's roof rails, skid plates, front bumper air ducts, and logos have all been painted black. A black-painted grille features an eye-catching pattern unique to the Nightfall Edition, and Kia tops it all off with unique 20-inch black wheels and LED headlamps and fog lamps with black inner bezels.
Even though every Nightfall Edition wears the darkened exterior trim, customers can order it with paint in shades of white, silver, gray, dark red, or dark green.
