The next-generation Kia Sorento made the Internet rounds nearly a week ago when a pre-production prototype was spotted somewhere in Russia, caught with camouflage only on the hood and rear bumper.
2024 Kia Sorento engine
New details have emerged onto the web about the forthcoming Sorento (codenamed MQ4), along with the fresh set of renderings. There will be a total of six engines available, but that will depend on the market, as our sorce reporting. Gasoline-fueled models will be powered by a naturally aspirated 2.5-liter unit performing its duties in the entry-level versions, while turbocharged 2.0- and 2.5-liter mills will equip the more expensive models, too. There will also be 2.0- and 2.2-liter turbodiesel engines. However, Kia has already announced plans to electrify the next KIA Sorento with hybrid and plug-in hybrid engine. It is believed a solar roof in the same vein as the one implemented in the Sonata Hybrid will be available, so look for the SUV to offer a yet-to-be-revealed number of free miles each year, as well. Hyundai says six hours of daily charging will translate into an extra 1,300 kilometers (808 miles) of range annually, in the case of the sedan.
2024 Kia Sorento release date and price
An American debut is likely scheduled for the New York Auto Show in April, and deliveries will begin shortly after, as well. Pricing of new Kia Sorento will start in the vicinity of $27,000
So, Kia has been spotted benchmarking the Sorento against the latest BMW X5, indicating the new vehicle will be more premium than any of its predecessors, too.
Than, a series of images out of South Korea have revealed some of the car’s new interior that sports a digital instrument cluster, a four-spoke steering wheel, and has a large central infotainment screen, giving an overall more premium and upscale feeling over today’s model, as well.
It will compete against the likes of the Ford Explorer, Mazda CX-9, Jeep Grand Cherokee, Skoda Kodiaq, GMC Acadia, Toyota Highlander, Nissan Murano, and Dodge Durango, when the new Kia Sorento hits the market.
