Thanks for visiting our latest blog post, which revelas the official Kia towing capacity figures for the Sorento, Sportage and Sedona.
If you have a trailer, or plan on towing things on a regular basis, you are going to have to invest in a vehicle that’s up to the task.
The good news for those of you interested in purchasing a Kia is that there are three models in their U.S. line-up that are more than capable of pulling heavier loads.
Let’s take a closer look so that we can find out just how much each of the Kia vehicles can tow.
Towing with 2020 Kia Sorento
If you are looking for cargo space and towing power in one great package, then the Sorento midsize SUV may well be the vehicle for you.
Designed to comfortably seat up to 7 passengers, the 2020 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 290-hp Kia Sorento and the Dynamax AWD system, you are looking at a towing capacity of up to 5,000 pounds.
Towing with 2021 Kia Sportage
The Sportage SUV 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 2021 Kia Sportage towing capacity is rated at 2,000 pounds.
Towing with 2021 Kia Sedona minivan
You might not expect a minivan to have much in the way of towing capacity, but the Sedona can pull more weight than the Kia Sportage.
It certainly helps that the minivan comes with a powerful V6 engine like the one found under the hood of the larger SUV.
You will need to go with the model that includes the optional towing package, but when you do, you get a 2021 Kia Sedona with a towing capacity of 3,500 pounds.
