The automaker collaborated with Texas-born fashion designer Brandon Maxwell to dress the otherwise street smart Telluride in stylized off-road gear that includes skid plates, an exterior spare tire carrier, a roof rack with a not-so-practical-looking ladder, an air intake snorkel and leather-trimmed side mirrors.

Kia hasn’t revealed too many details about the full-size Telluride, but it will have all-wheel-drive and a V6 engine when it climbs atop the company’s SUV lineup next year.
