The South Korean based automaker Kia has recently revealed the 2013 Sorento which is rather an update brought to the model than a new generation.
As you can see from the images posted below this article in the photo gallery, the 2013 Kia Sorento is coming with an updated front and rear fascias, a prominent grille with the company’s design, body color accents and 17-inch alloy wheels, while the top of the range SX model is adding stuff like the LED tail lights, chromed exhaust tip and 18-inch alloy wheels.
The interior hasn’t been left aside either, and the “new” Kia Sorento now has, in standard, a telescopic steering wheel, air conditioning and power windows, but as options, the new UVO infotainment system can be ordered, along with the Convenience Plus Package, the leather wrapped steering wheel, the automatic climate control, heated and cooled front seats, illuminated scuff plates and stainless steel pedals.
According to the car manufacturer, three engines are available for the 2013 Kia Sorento, the 2.4 liter MPI four-cylinder, which is developing a total output of 175 horsepower and it has a peak torque of 229 Nm (169 lb-ft), the 2.4 liter GDI four-cylinder, with its 191 horsepower and 245 Nm of torque (181 lb-ft) and the top of the line 3.5 liter V6, generating 276 horsepower and 336 Nm of torque (248 lb-ft). Kia says that all engines are mated to a six-speed automatic transmission, and front-wheel drive is offered in standard, while the AWD system can be ordered as an option.
