Scoop: Kia Readying Sorento For A Major Facelift?

| |

Our man with the long lens caught a couple of heavily camouflaged Kia Sorentos resting on a truck, showing the brand’s intentions for the future of their full-size SUV.

It’s been about two years since we first saw the Kia Sorento, the brand’s second model to be built at the company’s US plant in Georgia.

Instead of the regular nip and tuck, Kia could be working on a much more deep update as our man spotted a little sign card that gave away the new internal code ‘QM’ for the Sorento.

Although our info is limited at this point, we can expect Kia pushing the updated Sorento to a more upmarket territory of the segment. Rumors suggest though that we won’t see the model in its final production form until 2018.

The heavy camouflage in combination with thick layers of snow does the job of hiding the differences brilliantly. We can see though that Kia is planning to replace the usual: front grille, lights all-around and bumpers, probably to keep the Sorento in line with the rest of the range.

But the new internal code should mean than the Korean company might to present some bigger changes under the skin, including engines and suspension.
