2020 Kia Sorento Design, Release Date and Price – The standard equipment of the base 2020 Kia Sorento will include a rearview camera, keyless entry, 17-inch metal wheels, cruise control, cloth upholstery, and a 7.0-inch touchscreen to the infotainment system, Bluetooth, Apple CarPlay and Android Auto connectivity. The LX model will add satellite radio, blind-spot tracks, rear cross-traffic alarms, two USB interfaces, an acoustic windshield, automatic climate control, and a power passenger seat, dual-zone climate controller, and power driver’s seat. This model will even get more safety features such as automatic emergency braking, forward-collision warning, smart cruise control, and lane-departure warning.
2020 Kia Sorento Redesign
The current, 2019 model year has just been released with several improvements, so we sincerely doubt that the new 2020 Kia Sorento will find some major updates. The current model has gotten a new design of the front and rear fascia, upgraded interior, and much more safety features. As for the external look, the current model has been slightly refreshed with revised front and rear fascias, thus we don’t anticipate any substantial changes for the forthcoming 2020 Kia Sorento. The front end today features a chrome grille and a set of swept-back headlamps.
The front bumper is new. The profile has stayed largely unchanged but we can notice some new designs of the wheels. Around back, the Sorento has a new bumper, exceptionally positioned taillights, and four-light LED fog lights. Furthermore, the higher trim levels will get dark metallic grille, chrome roof rails, and stainless-steel trim.
2020 Kia Sorento Interior, Design
The 2020 Kia Sorento will come with three-row chairs configuration. Along with the two-row configuration has been deleted for the 2019 model year. Thus, it’ll have the ability to welcome up to seven passengers. The front and the second rows of chairs are comfortable and offer plenty of space whereas the third row is suitable for younger adults and children.
The base model will come with fabric upholstery while the higher cuts will probably be available with leather upholstery. At the center of the dashboard, there is a standard 7.0-inch touchscreen to the infotainment system. Also, behind the third row, there is a cargo area of 11.3 cubic feet. But with all the seats folded down, there is a room of roughly 73 cubes.
2020 Kia Sorento Engine, Specs
The 2020 version will include two types of engines as before, standard three-row seating setup, and possibly a few new features. The all-new 2020 Kia Sorento will return with two types of engines depending on a cut level. The one is going to be a 2.4-liter inline-4 unit that is mated to a 6-speed automatic transmission. It’ll be able to create 185 horsepower and 178 pound-feet of torque.
The front-wheel configuration will be regular while the all-wheel drive layout will also be offered. Connected to front wheels, this engine will get 22 mpg in the city and 29 mpg on the highway. The all-wheel-drive version will probably be rated at 21 mpg in the city and 26 mpg on the highway.
The higher trim levels will be powered by a 3.3-liter V-6 engine which will be able to produce 290 horsepower and 252 lb-ft of torque. This engine is going to be paired with an 8-speed automatic transmission. It will also be available with front-wheel and all-wheel drive settings. Furthermore, the all-wheel-drive version is going to be rated at 19 mpg in the city and 24 mpg on the highway. The Sorento will be able to tow between 2,000 and 5,000 lbs that will be contingent on a drivetrain and engine option.
