Among a very crowded midsize SUV segment, Kia's 2008 Sorento is a great choice for anyone looking for a vehicle capable of handling serious work both on road and off. It's a stylish, truck-based SUV with lots of amenities, pricing below the competition, two great V6 powerplants, and true 4x4 capability. Additionally, like all Kias, the Sorento comes with one of the best powertrain warranties in the industry.
For 2008, the Kia Sorento adds a new engine to the lineup--a 242-horsepower 3.3L V6. It will power the base and LX models, while the 262-horsepower 3.8L V6 that powered the entire line last year only comes in EX models. Outside, the 2008 Sorento differs slightly, as the grille, headlights, taillights, and front and rear fascias have been revised. Pricing on the base model climbed $1,000, while across the rest of the range, the increase was far more modest.
With its new 3.3L V6, which has 242-horsepower and 228 lb-ft of torque, the 2008 Kia Sorento offers an attractive engine alternative to the excellent 3.8L V6 that puts out 262-horsepower and 260 lb-ft. The 3.3L powers the base model as well as the LX, while the EX is powered by the 3.8. Both engines come with five-speed Sportomatic gearboxes.
