2017 Sorento Info
From another forum (hopefully it's allowed to do this):
2017 Kia Sorento Release Date, Colors, Changes
2017 Sorento release date:
Kia has yet to officially announce the official launch date of their midsize sporty utility vehicle.
While not confirmed yet, it is highly-likely that the Korean automaker will reveal first details about the 2017 model year changes during the upcoming New York Auto Show in April.
The other possible debut date is the L.A. auto show in November this year, however, we doubt that Kia would wait so long with the release of the 2017 Sorento AWD.
The 2017 model year Sorento SUV should arrive to your local Kia store in the second half of this year, while the exact on sale date of the 2017 Sorento have yet to be determined.
2017 Kia Sorento changes
Kiaís large SUV has been given a major styling makeover about a year ago, so we are not expecting to see major changes on the 2017 model.
The exterior design, as well as the interior, will stay intact and Kia will not perform any mechanical upgrades for the upcoming model year.
2017 Kia Sorento colors
There are a couple of things that Kia will upgrade on the 2017 Sorrento and those are the trim levels and exterior color options.
Kia Sorento color range may get a minor expansion with Kia adding one or two more paint shades to the SUVs color palette.
Things have yet to be confirmed, but Kia usually refreshes the colors after a couple of years on the market.
New Sorento hybrid / specs
There have been some talk about the Sorento getting a hybrid drivetrain in 2017 or 2018, however, we do not have any confirmation from Kia staff.
The engine range and specs + transmissions will not be changed!
Itís still too early to speculate on the 2017 Sorento prices. We do not expect major increases in MSRP, though.
As already mentioned, the existing trim levels (L, LX, EX, SX, SX Limited) may be slightly upgraded to offer even more bang for the buck!
Expect the 2017 Sorento reviews to start hitting the world wide web shortly after its inaugural US market launch later this year.
