The future 2024 Kia Sorento is said to come ‘wearing’ Telluride style. Based on the spyshot images, it’s obvious that Telluride has its influence on the Sorento, which gets a facelifted work. Kia’s design is continuously evolving and developing, which means that you can expect something new (and better) from them.
About the Sorento
The fourth gen of Sorento was introduced in the beginning of 2020. At that time, the design looked good and fresh, but Kia has always tried to develop better and higher. The current lineups have this sexier and sleeker style, which drives Kia to make new improvement. Sorento is basically an outstanding vehicle for families. But Kia wants to make sure that the popularity of this vehicle will remain, so they are working on a facelift touchup. It seems that the company decided to borrow some design cues from the Telluride so the three row Sorento will still be able to look super stylish.
Cues from the Spy Shots
Kia has done quite impressive job to hide their new 2024 Kia Sorento by always covering the prototype vehicles in loose fitting cover. However, there have been recent spy shot images that show that the headlights would likely change. The current one has horizontal orientation while the new one seems to have the scaled-down version of the Telluride. It’s possible that there would be new inlets flanking the central lower intake, while the LED running night would move to the headlight’s top.
The Interior Cabin
The cabin of Sorento has been known to be clean, plush, and somewhat straightforward. It’s a ‘fun’ family vehicle, which means that it would be plush and comfortable, ideal for families, especially for carrying more than 5 people and having to go through long distance trip. Expect the latest infotainment system from Kia, including a new screen that will likely go together with new upholstery options and also redesigned steering wheel.
Powertrain and Performance
Rumor has it that the Sorento will likely be running on the same existing engines, but they would be tuned for better performance. The tuned up is designed to reduce emissions as well as increasing the fuel economy. If taking ideas from the 2022 Sorento model, it means that the base trim would be running on four cylinder unit with 2.5 liter capacity, generating 191 hp and 181 Nm of torque. As the optional, there would be a turbo unit with 2.5 liter capacity delivering 281 hp and 311 Nm of torque. Two hybrid variants are also offered and be made available. But the detailed explanation and descriptions are far from being satisfactory, so we need to wait until Kia provides one.
Q and A
Q: What kind of plan does Kia have for the upcoming Sorento?
A: It seems that they would try to ‘squeeze out’ as much as possible from the current Sorento before they finally make something, possibly the all new electrified model.
Q: Does Kia have plans for their launch date and price?
A: The information hasn’t been available. After all, Kia hasn’t disclosed much of their upcoming development. But considering that it is designed as the 2024 model Sorento, it’s most likely that it would be ready sometime in 2023. For price, we still don’t know for sure, so we just need to wait for Kia to finally release the info about their 2024 Kia Sorento.
