2017 Kia Sorento

The Kia Sorento Is the Perfect SUV for Shelby Families

Out of the various SUVs available in Shelby, the Kia Sorento easily stands out from the crowd with its style. This model is affordable and available in a total of seven configurations when you factor in the trim levels and engines, meaning that you are guaranteed to find a version that matches your needs and budget. The Sorento is value-oriented and can be configured to seat five passengers or seven depending on the size of your family. In either case, you will get the ability to fold the split rear seats to maximize passenger room or cargo space at a moment's notice. Those who like to bring additional items with them will appreciate the ability to tow as much as 5,000 pounds with ease, making it great for bringing your family's boat to a nearby lake. Of course, the Sorento also offers the latest technology with available features like Apple CarPlay, Android Auto, and navigation. For the driver who needs an SUV that is capable of towing, offers top-notch technology, and has plenty of options, the Kia Sorento is an ideal option.

Updates to the 2017 Kia Sorento

While the Kia Sorento has always been an impressive vehicle, there were a few notable changes for the 2017 model that makes it better than ever. This model year only went up slightly in price, particularly on the base models. This makes it easy to shop new models alongside their older versions. The price increase comes down to the fact that now the top Limited trims come standard with adaptive headlights and autonomous emergency braking, which weren't even offered last year. In fact, you can now opt for autonomous emergency braking on all 2017 Sorento models with the exception of the entry-level Sorento L. The base LX offers Bluetooth, a 5-inch display, six-speaker sound system and CD player, rearview camera, and satellite radio as standard features. Sorentos from later in the model year also offer Apple CarPlay and Android Auto on the LX trim level, expanding its availability from previous years significantly. You can also select to upgrade such as with the LX's Convenience package, which adds a blind-spot monitor, rear cross-traffic alert, rear parking sensors, driver memory settings, power folding heated mirrors, and more.

The History of the Kia Sorento

The Kia Sorento first became available in 2003 as an alternative for drivers who loved the Sportage SUV's versatility but wanted more room. It offered off-road capabilities and budget-friendly pricing that made it quickly grow popular. The trim levels expanded for the 2004 model year with the sportier LX trim. In 2005, the former 4-speed automatic transmission became a 5-speed one, and alloy wheels became standard in 2006. The V6 engine received more power for 2007 along with safety enhancements. The new base 242-horsepower 3.3-liter V6 arrived for the 2008 model year, adding a bit more power and performance. The 2011 Kia Sorento offered a significant redesign, including the newly available third row of seats, more power, and numerous enhancements inside and out. The Uvo interface arrived for the 2012 model year and the automaker has continued to make minor adjustments since then, arriving at the 2017 Kia Sorento model.
