2017 KIA Sorento for Sale Greenwood Village CO

Vehicle Overview

For a decade and a half now, the KIA Sorento has enjoyed popularity with customers who are pleasantly surprised that a crossover can possess a high level of ruggedness expected from the most dedicated SUVs. With the 2017 model year, the Sorento continues its march into its third production cycle. There are five trim levels of the vehicle (i.e., L, LX, EX, SX, and SXL), which are split into the following: L, LX, LX V6, EX, EX V6, SX, and SXL V6.

The main source of the 2017 KIA Sorento's sturdiness as an SUV is its steel unibody; it does not consist of pieces attached to a frame. Front illumination is provided by a pair of projector beam headlights, which are upgraded to auto-leveling high-intensity discharge (HID) lights if you get the SXL V6. On the EX and higher, the headlights are joined by dual fog lights. The SXL V6 replaces the halogen headlight bulbs with LEDs, which are designed to last longer. At the base level, the side mirrors have heating capability and integrated LED turn-signal indicators; folding and reverse tilt-down ability are added if you go with the SX and SXL V6. Roof rails on top of the vehicle appear if you choose the LX or higher; the SX and SXL V6 also get a panoramic sunroof. At the rear, there's a rear spoiler, which is joined by a smart power liftgate on the SX or SXL V6.

As a midsize crossover SUV, the 2017 KIA Sorento is typically a two-row vehicle that seats up to five people. However, if you go with any of the "V6" variants (i.e., LX V6, EX V6, and SXL V6), a third row is added, thus expanding maximum occupancy to seven people. (You have the option of a third row if you want the regular LX). The EX trim level replaces the cloth trim with leather, upgrades the driver's seat with 10-way power adjustability and power lumbar support, and adds heating capability on both front seats. At the SX trim level, the driver's side is further enhanced with 14-way power adjustability and a memory system. (Second-row heating capability and front-seat cooling capability are added on the SXL V6.)

More comfort and convenience is provided by features such as remote keyless entry, cruise control, Bluetooth connectivity, steering wheel-mounted controls, a SiriusXM satellite radio subscription, and a six-speaker stereo system. On the LX, a rearview camera appears with a 4.3-inch color touchscreen. On the EX, the 4.3-inch display is supplanted by a 7-inch one. More additions and enhancements include UVO eServices voice recognition, Apple CarPlay and Android Auto (new for the model year), a smart key system with push-button engine start, and dual-zone automatic climate control. On the SX and SXL V6, KIA swaps the six-speaker audio system with HD Radio and a 10-speaker Infinity surround sound system. Exclusive trim features include steering wheel-mounted paddle shifters (on the EX), a 7-inch LCD supervision meter cluster and third-row air conditioning (on the EX V6), and a universal transceiver for remote-controlling garage doors (on the SXL V6).

The new KIA Sorento gets a large amount of its stability and silkiness from a MacPherson strut front suspension and a multi-link rear suspension. Motor-driven power steering is standard on the Sorento; rather than drawing power from the engine, the vehicle gets an independent power source via an electric motor. The SX has its electric motor mounted on the steering rack, rather than the steering column, thus enhancing handling ability.

Powertrain - KIA Sorento specs near Greenwood Village CO

Installed on the 2017 KIA Sorento is a 2.4-liter GDI inline 4-cylinder engine, which generates 185 horsepower and 178 lb-ft of torque.

Each engine is mated to a 6-speed automatic transmission, which has a Sportmatic shifter to enable more gear shifting control.
