Towing with 2022 Kia Sorento
If you are looking for cargo space and towing power in one great package, then the all-new Sorento midsize SUV may well be the vehicle for you.
Designed to comfortably seat up to 7 passengers, the 2022 Kia Sorento also has some real towing power.
Just how much you can tow with it depends on the engine and drive configuration that you opt for.
If you go with the base Kia Sorento model, you are looking at a towing capacity of 2,500 pounds. Once you opt in for the Sorento Towing Package, the towing capacity increases to 3,500 lbs.
Towing capacity of 2022 Kia Sportage
The Sportage crossover comes in a little smaller than the Sorento, but it can still be used to tow a decent amount of weight, regardless of which of the two engines options you go with.
There is AWD and FWD options with the Sportage, but neither influences the overall towing capacity.
The 2022 Kia Sportage towing capacity is rated at 2,000 pounds.
Towing with 2021 Kia Carnival minivan
You might not expect a minivan to have much in the way of towing capacity, but the newly released 2022 Kia Sedona can pull more weight than the Kia Sportage!
It certainly helps that this attractive minivan comes with a powerful V6 engine like the one found under the hood of the larger SUV models.
All 2022 Kia Carnival models boast a towing capacity of 3,500 pounds!
2022 Kia Telluride towing capacity
The official towing rating of the Kia Telluride stands at 5,000 lbs. This is the most capable Kia vehicle currently on sale in the US market when it comes to towing.
So, a very good choice, if you need to haul a boat, motorcycle or even some heavier loads.
