Towing... I want to get a travel trailer.
I know other manufacturers recommend one for you install. When u get the towing pkg. I got the hitch put on and told the dealership what I was intending to do with it. And they were totally clueless. Response was " well the vehicles so new we don't know"

I thought I read that the Telly and Palisade have factory auxiliary transmission cooling which is why they are rated to tow 5000lbs with/without the tow package????

They wouldn't rate it to tow 5k pounds if it didn't have some sort of transmission cooling. The only reason to get more is if you are regularly going up/down steep grades near the 5k limit. If so, you probably want a different car to be honest.

I too would like to know if my new Telluride SX has a transmission cooler. Tell me where to look and I'll climb under it with a flashlight.

It’s probably in front of the radiator with metal tubes (most likely) leading from the transmission.

I hope it’s a separate cooler and not the type that goes into the radiator! I had the latter type in previous suv and the darn thing developed a hole inside the radiator causing the oil/coolant to mix into the transmission and radiator.

The parts fiche for the Telluride is not available yet. So I looked up the parts fiche for the 2019 Sorrento and it shows a transmission oil cooler for both the V6 and 4 cyclinder engines.

However I have looked all over and under my SX and cannot locate a separate tranny cooler.

Looking closer at my SX there are two lines coming from what I believe is the transmission. One line goes to the top of the radiator and the other to the bottom of the radiator. Not sure the attached pic shows it very well. So it looks like the Telluride transmission does not have a separate transmission cooler. Whether it's any different than the Palisade "heavy duty" transmission cooler remains a mystery.

We'll that sucks!! If those lines are from the transmission and goes into the radiator, then it's a similar configuration as the 4Runner I had.

We need to get the member here that has both a Telluride and a Palisade to take a look and see of the Palisade has the same setup. According to the marketing literature all Palisade come standard with a heavy duty tranny cooler. Can't imagine why the Telluride would be any different.

I'll send him a PM and see if he is willing to take a look.

Ever get a response on this?
