2019 Sorento Performance Specs

Another important change made to the 2019 Kia Sorento is with the crossover SUV’s available powertrain options. Customers will have access to a pair of engine options, depending on which of the five trim grades they decide to take home. The standard engine/transmission setup for the 2019 Sorento will be a naturally aspirated 2.4-liter, four-cylinder engine making 185 horsepower and is attached to a six-speed automatic transmission.

Upper trims have the option of being outfitted with a 3.3-liter, V-6 engine mated to a newly available eight-speed automatic transmission. This will give owners as much as 290 horsepower to use. The V-6-powered Sorento will be able to tow up to 5,000 pounds when it is equipped with the available all-wheel-drive system.

Enhanced Safety Profile

Each of the new crossover SUVs above the entry-level EX will come with a complete suite of Kia’s Advanced Driver Assistance Systems. In addition to pre-existing safety solutions like forward collision warning, adaptive cruise control and blind spot monitoring, the 2019 Kia Sorento adds Lane Keeping Assist and Rear Cross Traffic Collision Warning to the mix. Future owners that have regular long drives will like the newly available Driver Attention Warning system that actually helps snap the driver back to reality if the system detects fatigue or inattentive driving behaviors.
