The US-manufactured Kia Sorento CUV receives a mid-cycle styling update and packaging upgrades for the 2013 model year!
With the release of a detailed technical information and new photos, Kia has officially unveiled the 2013 Kia Sorento CUV earlier today!
The all-new Kia Sorento enters its third model year with a slightly updated exterior and more refined interior. In addition, the 2013 Kia Sorento also brings several trims and packaging upgrades to better suit the consumer’s needs.
Supported by a large number of awards and sales milestones, the 2013 Kia Sorento features a slightly redesigned front-fascia with Kia’s new signature grille being the most notable feat of the upgraded CUV.
Available in LX, EX and SX trim levels, the Sorento crossover vehicle offers standard 17-inch alloy wheels and body-color outside mirrors with integrated LED turn signal indicators.
Other enhancements include standard leather seating for the EX trim and a newly standard third-row seat for the LX V6 trim. In addition, the base 2013 Sorento LX now offers the optional UVO voice activated infotainment system.
New to the 2013 Sorento is a brand- new LX Convenience Plus Package, which includes an eight-way power driver’s seat, leather-wrapped steering wheel and shift knob, and a First Aid Kit for family-minded consumers.
Kia Sorento engine options include a 2.4L four-cylinder engine with 175 horsepower and 169 lb-ft of torque, a 2.4L four-cylinder GDI engine with 191 horsepower and a 3.5L V6 unit with 276 horsepower and 248 lb-ft of torque. All engines are paired with Kia’s in-house developed six-speed automatic transmission.
Kia has not released any information about the 2013 Kia Sorento pricing. Expect the facelifted CUV to make its official US-market premiere at the upcoming New York Auto Show next month!
