2019 Kia Sorento Changes and New Features

Perhaps the biggest change for the 2019 Kia Sorento is that seating for seven passengers across three rows is now standard across all trim levels.  

Also updated for the 2019 Kia Sorento is the available engine lineup. While the 2019 Kia Sorento still offers the same 185-hp, 2.4-liter I-4 engine and 290-hp, 3.3-liter V6 engine as the 2018 Sorento, the turbocharged 2.0-liter engine is no longer available. Kia, however, has announced plans to release a diesel powertrain that could be available later in 2019.

Also notable is the newly-available 8-speed automatic transmission (previously available on the premium Kia Cadenza).

The 2019 Kia Sorento still offers five trim levels: L, LX, EX, SX and SXL. Each trim level offers drivers a unique set of standard and available features, packages and options.

On the outside, the new Kia Sorento has updated front and rear fascia designs, full LED headlights and taillights, new Driver Assistance Systems and so much more!
