2020 Kia Sorento: Preview, Pricing, Release Date

Model Preview

The Kia Sorento went through a full redesign in 2016 and a comprehensive refresh in 2019. With its looks still fresh, we expect the 2020 Kia Sorento to be a carryover model.

As a carryover, we expect the 2020 Kia Sorento to continue with the same outward appearance it has now. This includes its refreshed grille, headlights, fog lights, front and rear bumpers, liftgate, muffler tips, taillights, and wheels. Inside, we expect it to continue with the same refreshed look too, including a new steering wheel, gear shift knob, instrument cluster, air vents, and center console.

With no changes coming, there is no reason to change the 2020 Kia Sorento’s standard features list. If this is the case, the 2020 Sorento’s standard features list will include desirable goodies like a 7-inch touchscreen Apple CarPlay, Android Auto.

We expect the 2020 Kia Sorento to hit showrooms with the same powertrain options as the current model. This will include a standard 2.4-liter four-cylinder engine with 185 horsepower and 178 pound-feet of torque or an optional 3.3-liter V6 with 290 hp and 252 lb-ft of torque. With everything remaining the same, the four-cylinder engine will keep its standard six-speed automatic transmission and the V6 will retain its standard eight-speed unit. Front-wheel drive will remain standard, and all-wheel drive will be available as an option.

2019 Kia Sorento

The current Kia Sorento boasts all the necessary safety goodies, including available blind-spot monitors, rear cross-traffic alert, parking sensors, forward-collision warnings, automatic emergency braking, adaptive cruise control, and more to earn it an IIHS Top Safety Pick+ rating. Keep in mind, though, these are only available in LX and higher trims -- the base L trim does not offer these important features. We expect all the safety goodies to remain the same in the 2020 Kia Sedona.

Pricing & Release Date

There is no official word on when the 2020 Kia Sorento will hit showrooms, but we expect a spring 2019 arrival.

With no changes coming, we anticipate its price range remaining similar to the current model, which ranges from $27,335 to $47,535 (destination fees included).

The 2020 Kia Sorento will compete with the Dodge Durango, Ford Explorer, and Honda Pilot.
