I have a Wolf Gray SX on order and just received word it will be at the dealer next week. Looking for some ideas on various items for the Telly. I'm in Indiana and about 50 miles from the Muncie dealer. I ordered one from them but was 38th in line 6 weeks ago so I ordered from NowCar. A week after I placed an order they received their allotment and I was immediately placed in the Q. So far my experience has been nothing but positive. Natahly has sent me an update weekly. i have heard nothing from Munice. So I will be canceling my Muncie order and taking delivery in a couple of weeks. Looking forward to it

Thank you for the welcome. The Telluride will become my wife's car and is replacing a Subaru Outback. Hopefully the Telluride will be as good in snow and back weather as the Subie.

The really great thing is that it NEVER once "slipped" or "slid" on that road ( 3 miles long )......put it in "snow" mode , move the tranny to manual and kept it in 3rd gear and just moved right along! Two weeks from now I'll be on that road again!

I read somewhere that snow mode and comfort mode are the same - 80% to the front wheels and 20% to the rear wheels. True?

Good question.....not sure I know the specific answer , but what I do know is that snow mode does indeed maintain power to the rear wheels. It's all about programing with regard to "shift points, speed, and power distribution." Probably the programmers are the only ones that know the "specifics!" :unsure: Anyway, what I have found is that in SNOW mode the the power distribution starts out at 50 - 50 and gradually moves more power to the front as speed increases, remaining at what is most likely what you suggest , 80 -20, until around 45 or 50 mph when it appears it moves to all front. ( can't imagine any of us going 50 or more in snow!) SNOW also seems to affect the shift points....holding in the lower gear points longer. In COMFORT it seems to start off the same way as SNOW but very quickly moves to ALL power going to the front as well as quickly moving to the higher gear points. Here's another pic from my mountain adventure last year.....

Hello Indy,
Congrats on your new vehicle. I also ordered from Munice as well, Lucas was very helpful. Like you Im on the list, and looking at other dealers currently. Do you know if Nowcar offer incentives? Any tips you have would be helpful before I reach out to a rep at NowCar.
