Southfield MI - 2022 Kia Sorento's Overview

Exterior – Kia Dealer serving Southfield MI

The three-row Sorento is smaller than some of Kia’s choices, so it makes for a perfect middle of the road SUV. Its three rows give you additional passenger capacity, but that leaves room for agile performance. The size of the exterior is just right on both the 2022 Kia Sorento vs 2021 Kia Sorento. Each one is serving Detroit Southfield Dearborn Michigan drivers with an easy on the eyes styling. A new plug-in hybrid model is a high point of the model this year, and it’s going to have styling points that no other 2021 Sorento has. For those who want something different all the way around, the PHEV version in 2022 is one to keep your eye on. Roof rack rails, signature LED headlamps, and 20-inch wheels are in your future in 2022. Ask Glassman Kia for additional ways these two models differ.

Interior – 2022 Kia Sorento in Southfield MI

The Kia Sorento from any model year is known for its refinement. A one-touch panoramic sunroof, wireless phone charger, 10.25-inch infotainment system, leather-wrapped wheel, and 3D-embossed genuine leather seat trim can be had earlier in the 2022 trim lineup than the 2021 version. You’ll also see that they’ve made some slight adjustments to seat spacing and the cradling shape of the 2nd row captain’s chairs (if you choose those). The third row is a fine example of why so many people choose the Sorento.

Kia Sorento Mechanical specs

Both the 2022 and 2021 Sorento bring on a 191 horsepower to 281 horsepower powertrain. The one clear difference is the PHEV model that’s coming to the 2022 Sorento lineup. While all specs on this model aren’t set in stone yet, we for now know that the model gets a turbocharged 261 horsepower engine and electric motor, and a 6-speed automatic transmission. It’s a winning combination that will win many new fans of the Sorento. People have wanted a plug-in option for awhile now, and suddenly that’s a reality on the 2022 model. If you want PHEV power, the 2022 Sorento is your next SUV. A new version of Adaptive All-Wheel Drive with Lock Mode is standard on most Sorento trims this year. You’ll find greater control over your curves and straight stretches, along with an additional full one inch of ground clearance. It’s all built into your Kia Sorento for a greater sense of power over the environment. Torque Vectoring Cornering Control is also back this year with a slightly more responsive system installed into the model.
