Though the 2014 Sorento looks a little similar to the previous model, the inside has been completely redesigned by Kia (both under the hood and inside the cabin). The future Sorento will deliver more power and convenience than ever before, because it’s built with about 80% new, or completely reworked components. And, it’s this kind of innovation that has made Kia the fastest-growing major automotive brand in the world.
Read on to find out all about the 2014 Kia Sorento’s upgrades:
The 2014 Sorento will come standard with a 2.4L direct injection four-cylinder engine, with a six-speed automatic transmission and front wheel drive. Drivers who want a bigger engine will be able to select a 3.3L V6 engine that delivers up to 290 horsepower, and available Torque-On-Demand all-wheel drive (for improved traction in all weather conditions). Electric steering with three settings will offer improved handling, and the redesigned suspension, will make your ride smoother than ever.
The frame of the 2014 model will have about 18% more torsional stiffness than the previous model, according to engineers at Kia. The rear and front fascia have been slightly redesigned, and the vehicle will feature LED taillights and running lights. Available wheels will include 17-, 18-, and 19-inch aluminum models. Some trims will feature an optional panoramic sunroof and a programmable, power liftgate for easy loading and unloading.
For improved visibility and ease of use, the Sorento will feature a Thin Film Transistor center display on the instrument panel. The optional UVO infotainment system has also been upgraded with an eight-inch touchscreen display, and automatic emergency calling when the airbags are deployed. Available blind spot monitoring will help you driver safer. If you want extra amenities, you can also choose the premium speaker system, satellite radio, and ventilated front seats.
When the 2014 Kia Sorento becomes available, you will be able to test drive it at Brown’s Manassas Kia. We will also soon have the 2014 Kia Forte on display, along with the full 2013 lineup of vehicles from Kia, including sedans, crossovers, and family-sized vehicles.
