Why I Chose the Telluride SX as my New Mom SUV




After weeks of driving it, I am telling you my favorite features and why I chose the Telluride SX as my new mom SUV! I absolutely love it.

Best family-friendly features:

  • 3rd row

  • 7 seats

  • Internal Family Camera (to keep an eye on everyone)

  • Driver Talk (to talk to third row)

  • Quiet mode (front speakers only if kids sleep)

  • Hands-free liftgate

  • 64-color interior ambient lighting

  • Dual second-row Capitan chairs (perf to access 3rd row even with car seats)

  • Heated second row seating

  • Second row included sun shades

  • Tinted third row

  • Generously sized windows

  • USB ports in every row

  • Third row air control (to adjust as they please)

  • Stadium seating (third row can see up front!)

  • Spacious cargo area

  • Not an oversized SUV (easy parking)

Other features I love:

  • Heated and ventilated front seats

  • Leather seating

  • LED Headlights / taillights / fog lights

  • 20-inch alloy wheels

  • Dual-pane sunroof

  • 10-speaker Harman Kardon audio

  • Surround view camera

  • Automatic high-beam headlights

  • Front parking sensors

  • Blid-spot view monitor

  • Wireless smartphone charging

  • 10-way power adjustable driver seat with memory settings

  • Power folding side mirrors

  • Safe exit alert

  • Luxurious interior and stylish exterior

  • 12.3 inch instrument panel

The kids seriously get happy about riding in it, it meets their comforts and I couldn't love it more! It's also one of the safest SUVs and has won best family SUV of the year for three consecutive years!


It's truly popular, so finding it is not that easy (or they are overpriced with a mark up), but this also means that the resale value will be great if you treat it well. So what did I do to get the exact model (SX which includes all features) and color (white exterior with dark brown interior)?


Well, after test driving it, I called all car dealers in socal and told them what I was looking for. I mentioned I did not want the $15,000 mark up, and if they ever had the exact car I was looking for, without the extra cash, I would get it right away. I had to wait about a year (so you do have to have patience) but, I got the email, went right away, and drove it home within the hour. Worth the wait and it will be an amazing SUV for the next bunch of years, perfect for our family, to drive with my parents when they visit all in one car, and to have the option to grow our family without needing another car! #telluridesx #familycar #momlife #motherhood #momcar #familysuv #momsuv
