2018 Kia Sorento Review, Redesign, Changes and Release Date
Expected to come soon in the US market, the new 2018 Kia Sorento has not been announced by the official for its release and price announcement. It will be the new generation to compete with other medium-sized SUVs. Kia is a big Korean automaker that is promising to start the debut of this SUV at New York Auto Show. It will be introduced in April this year.
The outgoing model was completed with great styling makeover and many experts predicted that the new 2018 Kia Sorento would not get any drastic changes. It seems possible if the company provides some styling tweaks as the part of its refreshments. Besides, many reliable sources mentioned that the SUV would get an upgrade for its exterior color options and the trim levels. Buyers now can go with more choices to pick since Kia will add two more colors.
The interior is very lavish with the spacious cabin design that is still the same as the previous model. It has heated seats and leather trims as the options. Buyers can go with panoramic sunroof with power sunshade as the option too. Some storage cubicles, 12v outlets, USB ports should be added to complete the interior of 2018 Kia Sorento. The Premium Nappa Leather seat trim and heated steering wheel will be provided only for the SX Limited V6. Kia Sorento is a seven-seater SUV which offers you the foldable third row to give you extra storage anytime you want.
2018 Kia Sorento Engine
Rumors are also circulating on the engines. We heard that the company would provide hybrid engine specification, but everything is still a rumor. We have no official confirmation for that up to now. 2018 Kia Sorento is available in several variants such as L, LX, EX, SX and SX Limited. Other sources mentioned about the use of 2.4-liter four-cylinder engine for the L and LX to create 185 hp. For the Limited EX, it may use 2.0-liter turbocharged unit to provide 240 hp while the Limited V6 trim may go with 3.3 liter V6 to work for 290 hp.
2018 Kia Sorento is rumored to be introduced in the middle of 2017, or if not it may be able to come out at the end of 2017. The price is still hard to speculate but it can be slightly increased the current price because of the improvements around it. The price should not be more than $26,000 for the base model.
