Does The 2020 Kia Telluride Have A Timing Belt or Chain?

2020 Kia Telluride Second Row

The 2020 Kia Telluride is red hot in America and with any new car there are bound to be some questions regarding its feature set. For instance, did you know the Kia Telluride doesn’t come with a remote start fob on any of its trims?

That aside if you’re more into the mechanical details you might be curious if the Kia Telluride comes with a timing belt or a chain?

The Kia Telluride Comes With A Chain

Kia as a company as adopted the usage of chains in effectively all their vehicles. If you owned a Kia Sorento in the past it also uses a chain so you shouldn’t have to be concerned with the longevity of the part.

Furthermore if the part was to go out you can order it online from Kia Parts Now via this link. This product is confirmed to fit the 2020 Kia Telluride and if you’re looking to cross-shop the part number is: 243123CGA2

What Are The Benefits?

Timing Belts and chains serve the same purpose but there are some differences. Timing Belts are quieter and cheaper to produce (due to the lower cost of materials). A timing chain is a lot stronger and less prone to failure.

Scotty Kilmer actually has a really good vehicle that covers the differences.

I love cars, but I am very much a pragmatist that is why I created Daily Driver Tips where I understand for most people safety and a good infotainment system matters more than horsepower.

Have your say!
