im in the same boat...my order was accepted on 01-June but no VIN number yet. I ordered an SX GG with nightfall pack. I needed a 2nd row bench so had to go this way else nightfall. Anyway i'm getting the nightfall pack to make it look like a nightfall. It will be a 2022 and i did ask the dealer whether the badging will be blacked out and he told me he wasnt sure BUT if it isn't they'll be blacking it out for me.
I'm based in Vancouver, Canada.
I ordered 2021 Telluride June 14/21. Said it would be 8 to 12 weeks. They called me 3 days later and said it would be in Edmonton within a month. They called me July 10th that it will be ready for pickup July 14th.
What a nice vehicle. Put on 1km already. Excellent ride. Got xpel plastic put on full hood quarter panels, front end, mirrrors, door caps,etc. Better than 3M that I had on last vehicle. Got it under coated and driver and passenger windows tinted to 50%. Was going to go to 35% but to dark for night driving and police ticketing.
Got factory hitch put on at Kia dealer. Checked around after market hitches. They look terrible and 4 inches lower. Factory one is only way to go. Check all Kia dealers. The pricing is all over the place.
Tinting picture before and after 50% tinting.
Cargo liner is a it pricey but custom fit.
