It has been a while when Kia launched current vehicle, and now we have a new vehicle upcoming next year. New 2019 Kia Sorento will be well organized and spacious 3-row SUV with the upgraded infotainment system. Comparing to the current model, this one has better features and climbing to a top trim spec, this vehicle has many things to offer.
The upgraded powertrain will likely be a V-6 engine, 8-speed automatic system which will deliver stronger output and significant fuel consumption. New series of Kia will be available in several trims as L, LX, EX, SX, and SXL. However, new stylish and futuristic design leave us surprised, and its especially visible in higher trim points where we can expect the use of LED lights and alloy 17-inch wheels, which can go up at higher trim levels.

Engine specs will contain several differences according to trim the customer chose. There are several solutions for new 2019 Kia Sorento engine specs. The base 2.4-liter inline-4 is able to give an output of 185-hp and 178 pound-feet of torque, which is only offered on L and LX trims with 6-speed automatic system. The LX trim will give a stronger output of 290hp and 252 lb-ft of torque having the V-6 engine on board, also paired with the 8-speed automatic system. AWD is available for trims, but not on L trim level.
The system of fuel savings for 2019 Kia is specific according to its trim levels. This model will come as classic fuel-saving gear with an average grade in that area. The engine as V-6 is in a package with AWD drive which is tested by EPA at 19 mpg city and 24 highway, and 21 combined. These features are climbing to higher marks in some cases. Engineers planned some serious turbo-diesel option, but nothing is confirmed yet.

The exterior of new 2019 Kia Sorento will be fresh with lots of features which are not visible in the current version. However, dimensions are different and other details have some changes too. Furthermore, the new Sorento is high-riding and boxy SUV with nicely design shape from outside. The new vehicle will have new front and rear bumpers. The grille is larger and more in the front part. From the sides are larger headlights which matching the grille, makes a sporty and sharp appearance. On upper trim levels, Kia will offer LED technology, and below that is 4-light LED fog-light housing. New wheels design will give the futuristic note and it can be different depending on trim levels.

It is great for long distance traveling with having several people on board. There is enough room for seven passengers and is very comfortable. Materials inside can be different depending on trim level. Infotainment system and technical support are on the very high level, and even base L trim is not cheap at all.
The only lacking is narrow space between the rows, however, in third, there could be lace for two adult people. This vehicle is smaller dimensions comparing to its rival Toyota Highlander, so we can expect less of the cargo place. With 73 cubic feet, this SUV will meet basic needs in cargo space.
