LA Auto Show: 2014 Kia Sorento

The Kia Sorento receives a refresh for the 2014 model year. The Sorento is Kia's second best-selling model right behind the Optima. The Sorento receives a refreshed exterior, interior, and mechanical changes.

The 2014 Kia Sorento will continue to offer two engine choices: 4-cylinder and 6-cylinder. The 2.4L engine produces 191 hp and 181 lb-ft of torque. The 4 cylinder engine is standard on the LX and EX trims. The new 3.3L V6 engine produces 290 hp and 252 lb-ft of torque. Both engines are mated to a 6-speed automatic transmission.

Kia will offer a limited trim for the Sorento. The Sorento Limited will offer three color choices (white, black, or silver), HID headlights, 19 inch chrome wheels, red-painted brake calipers, and Nappa leather seats. The Sorento will be the first Kia model to use a blindspot monitoring system.

The Green Light: While it is not a big departure from the current model I still think that the refreshed Sorento looks good. It will be interesting to see how well the Sorento Limited does.

Do you like the look of the refreshed 2014 Kia Sorento?
