Facelifted Kia Sorento Priced From $25,990 In USA

Unveiled at the 2017 LA Auto Show, the 2019 Kia Sorento can now be ordered across the United States.

It carries an MSRP of $25,990 for the entry-level L grade, which gets a standard three-row layout and a seven-inch touchscreen infotainment system. Powering it is a 2.4-liter in-line four GDI engine, rated at 185hp, which works together with a revised 6-speed automatic gearbox.

Described as being “more robustly equipped”, the LX trim starts from $27,490 with FWD and $29,290 with AWD.

This flavor can also be had with a 3.3-liter V6 GDI engine, which makes 290hp, and is married to a new 8-speed automatic transmission – priced from $31,290 and $33,090 with FWD and AWD, respectively.

Building upon the LX V6 and adding extra equipment, such as the projection fog lamps, Lane Keeping Assist and Driver Attention Warning, the Sorento EX costs at least $35,590. This is for the front-wheel drive model, whereas adding the all-wheel drive system would set you back for at least $37,390. As optional extras, this trim level gets Parking Distance Warning, a Harman Kardon sound system and AVN 5.0 navigation with Android Auto and Apple CarPlay support.

The 2019 Kia Sorento SX benefits from all of the features of the EX, to which it adds a standard wireless phone charger, AVN 5.0 navigation, a premium sound system and two-way powered lumbar support for the front passenger seat. It starts at $39,990 FWD and $41,790 AWD, and it also comes with LED headlights with High Beam Assist and Low Beam Assist.

Finally, the fully loaded SXL adds LED headlights and LED fog lamps, and can be had from $44,690 with FWD and $46,490 with AWD.

    I think its nice, but I have to see it in person; to better judge that middle row legs room.

    Not much of a refresh. But boy is it pricey in EX and above trims. Guess the “Telluride” will start around $50K. What WILL all these automakers do when fuel prices increase and/or the economy tanks (which some pundits say will be next year)? Rush back to cars and increase those prices, I guess…

      what’s pricey is the new traverse or explore those are pricey. The kia is actually competitive in this segment.

    that is crazy

    I like it, but it should have a slightly longer wheelbase and no third row. Maybe they’ll correct it when they have a legitimate 3-row offering.

    Kia Sorento is being price now like German luxury brands. The five trims levels are another name for packages in German luxury models. Only Kia cut through the jumping through hoops that German luxury brands have you go through! So base model is $26K and top of line is $46.5K.
