 What’s New for the 2018 Kia Sorento?

As a mid-size crossover SUV that has three rows, the 2018 Kia Sorento has been updated to provide the ultimate comfort for large families. With seven trims to choose from, you’ll find plenty of options that are suitable for a busy and exciting lifestyle. Installed in the SX and SX Limited, 14-way power front seats provide wonderful ergonomic support. These comfortable seats even include power lumbar and cushion extensions. The second-row seats are available with an automatic sliding and folding function. Having a 50-50 split-folding configuration, the third-row seats also provide versatile cargo and passenger combinations. Heating with multiple settings is available for the seats in the front and second rows. Also featuring several fan speeds, ventilation is installed in the front seats of select models. A climate control system with dual zones adjusts the temperature and air settings in the entire cabin. The Cluster Ionizer significantly improves the quality of air inside this Kia crossover SUV. Additionally, air conditioning vents with personalized controls are installed in the third row. Set up on the windows of the second row, sunshades provide privacy and some natural climate control. Select Sorento models have premium cloth upholstery that carries the YES Essentials trademark. Exclusively installed in the SX Limited, genuine Nappa leather adds style, durability and function to the seats.

When it comes to the mechanical design of the 2018 Kia Sorento, you’ll see many familiar components from previous years. For example, a turbocharged 2.0 L engine propels the EX 2.0T trim. This turbo engine is capable of generating up to 240 horsepower and 260 pound-feet of torque. Running on a naturally aspirated induction cycle, the 2.4 L engine yields 185 hp and 178 lb-ft of torque. The 3.3 L V6 engine has a peak rating of 290 hp and just above 250 lb-ft of torque. All of the engines are linked to an electronically controlled automatic transmission system that features an overdrive mode and the Sportmatic Shifter. Front-wheel drive (FWD) is standard in the Sorento, and you can also opt for the Dynamax All-Wheel Drive (AWD) for better traction. This dynamic AWD is paired with a locking center differential and the Torque Vectoring Cornering Control. When properly equipped, this Kia Sorento can easily tow a maximum of 5,000 pounds over long distances. A curb weight of less than 4,000 pounds also makes this crossover SUV quite light for its class.
