The Sorento, for anyone who hasn't kept pace with the midsize crossover leaderboards, never attracted much in the form of praise or accolades. The new one seems intent on changing that. It wears much more confident styling, can pack a powerful turbocharged punch, and is brimming with technology and safety equipment.
There's no such thing as an easy win in this segment, so not even the Sorento's new looks and features can ensure success. After all, other tempting choices like the Ford Edge, Chevrolet Blazer, and Honda Passport are also using styling, tech, and practicality to win over customers. The new Sorento has its work cut out for it if it wants to beat back its competition and own the segment with Telluride levels of confidence.
