KEY TAKEAWAYS

  • What powers the 2024 Kia Sorento?

    The LX and S models of the 2024 Kia Sorento are powered by a 2.5-liter I-4 GDI engine. A turbocharged version drives the higher trims like the X-Line and X-Pro.
  • Will there be a hybrid version of the new Sorento?

    Yes, Kia announced that the hybrid and plug-in hybrid models of the new Sorento will be launched next year.
  • With cutting-edge features borrowed from the EV9, the new Sorento combines advanced technology with its assertive, rugged look.

    The sport utility vehicle is designed based on Kia's “Opposites United” philosophy with the concept of “Bold for Nature.” The front hood and squared edges are evocative of the highly acclaimed Telluride. The Sorento also features the constellation-inspired Star Map lighting elements in the front and rear for a futuristic touch. Wider skid plates are integrated on the front and rear bumpers for a more aggressive impression.

    Inside, the Sorento has a minimalist yet modern aesthetic that creates a sense of openness. It features the ultramodern Connected Car Navigation Cockpit, which was first seen on the EV9. It is equipped with a panoramic panel with 4.3-inch thin film transistor display and 12.3-inch screen, but customers may opt for a panoramic curved display that integrates dual 12.3-inch screens. Wireless Apple Carplay and Android Auto are standard.

    A turbocharged version drives the higher trims like the X-Line and X-Pro, producing 281 hp and 421 Nm of torque. It is paired with an eight-speed wet dual-clutch transmission.

    Kia also announced that they will release hybrid and plug-in hybrid models of the Sorento next year.
