2009 Kia Borrego Sport Utility
Benefits of Driving a 2009 Kia Borrego Sport Utility
The Borrego enters a crowded field of more truck-like mid-size SUVs, including the Ford Explorer, Nissan Pathfinder, Toyota 4Runner and Chevrolet TrailBlazer that are gradually losing favor to more passenger-friendly crossover utility vehicles. However the Borrego has exterior styling that's more modern than these rivals. The Borrego has a body-on-frame layout that helps make it as tough and tow-friendly as the best, with a class-leading 7500-pound tow rating, yet it has a level of refinement and quiet comfort inside that's unmatched by most of its rivals. Price itself is a strong selling point for the Borrego; it offers more standard equipment than the competition at a similar price, which can make it quite the deal for those who want a loaded vehicle.
What's new for 2009?
The Borrego is an all-new SUV that rides on a completely new body-on-frame platform. It's aimed at traditional SUV buyers who need towing ability as well as modest off-road capability. The Borrego represents two firsts for the Kia brand
- Smooth, powerful engines
- quiet, refined interior
- comfortable seating
- towing ability
- strong value
The Borrego is offered in two different well-appointed trim levels, LX and EX, both of which are available with a V-6 or V-8 engine and rear- or four-wheel drive. Both engines are modern all-aluminum designs, smooth, and powerful; the 3.8-liter V-6 makes 276 horsepower, while the 4.6-liter V-8 produces 337 horsepower.
