You Don’t Need a Pickup Truck to Tow

Kia Sorento Towing Capacity

Kia Sorento Towing Capacity

The Kia Sorento provides impressive towing for a crossover, adding to its overall versatility.

It isn’t practical for every family to own a pickup truck capable of towing a colossal amount of weight. With the sacrifice in passenger space and fuel economy you have to make with a pickup truck, it isn’t always a great choice as a primary or secondary vehicle for families. But that doesn’t change the fact that you will have occasional towing demands. Fortunately, the 2014 Kia Sorento near Chicago, IL delivers all the family-focused features you need with enough towing capacity to satisfy most adventures.

If you expect to be towing boats, trailers or other gear, it’s important you keep that in mind when shop for the 2014 Kia Sorento near Chicago, IL. With several available engine options and drivetrains, Kia Sorento towing capacity ranges from 1,650 lbs. to 3,500 lbs.

If you expect your towing demands to be limited to trailers, jet skis, and other relatively lightweight equipment, the Kia Sortento LX four-cylinder engine manages a towing capacity of 1,650 lbs. Although that is respectable, we recommend upgrading to the 290-horsepower V6 available in all trims. With that more powerful engine paired with all-wheel drive, the Kia Sorento’s towing capacity soars to 3,500 lbs.

Kia Sorento Hauling

With folding seats, the Sorento delivers plenty of room for hauling.

While that may not compare to the 10,000-plus lbs. of towing capacity in many of today’s massive pickups, it is an adequate rating that will allow you to meet low intensity towing needs. Without the need for a pickup truck, families on the go don’t have to rely on a single vehicle for transporting the kids or making the daily commute to work. In fact, in addition to the Kia Sorento towing capacity, it also manages up to 21 city/highway combined MPG with the V6 engine resting under the hood. With available third-row seating, the Sorento delivers unparalleled versatility drivers expect from a crossover.

The 2014 Kia Sorento is one of the first and most impressive vehicles in the 2014 Kia lineup near Chicago, IL. Find out how the Sorento meets your needs by scheduling a test drive in the new Kia Sorento.
