2017 Sorento SX+ V6 AWD - 2016 SX+ V6 AWD (crashed) - 2014 SX V6 AWD (sold) - 2011 EX V6 AWD (sold)
The 2021 Sorento will be offered with a naturally aspirated 2.5-liter gasoline engine linked to a manual gearbox or a six-speed automatic sending power to the rear wheels. A turbocharged 1.6-liter gasoline mill is listed with a six-speed auto in both 2WD and 4WD forms, while a 2.2-liter diesel from the new “R” family has a 2.2-liter displacement and comes with an eight-speed, dual-clutch auto linked to either a 2WD or 4WD system.Some nice improvements to the exterior styling without going overboard. Looking forward to more details on power train options etc. 2.5 turbo and non turbo configurations likely.
Indeed, Power figures seem to indicate that it will be close to the 3.5 V6, i'm guessing though it will have more torque.
2 row seating and V6 power were priorities for me when I made the switch to the Nautilus. They were also priorities at the time of the purchase of my 2016 Sorento. I thought I could live with the 2.0 Turbo and for the most part it was a very good vehicle but I missed that V6 smoothness and power that continues up into the higher rpm range.I wonder if it will have a mandatory 3rd row, or an optional one. Now that the bigger Telluride is here, maybe a 2-row version of the Sorento can compete with other larger 2-rows like Edge/Blazer/Murano/Passport/Santa Fe, etc.
