2011 Kia Sorento Performance
The 2011 Sorento is quiet impressive all around, and this does include the performance sector as well. The Sorento is available in two different models-a 2.3 liter 4 cylinder model and a 3.5 V6 engine. The transmissions in both models are the same, with six forward speeds. The LS 4 cylinder edition of the Sorento also offers amazing towing capacity, with the ability to tow up to 1,600 pounds which extends up to 3,500 pounds when the V6 model is purchased instead. This makes it easy to tow a boat or car with ease. The Sorento is a great choice for those who need this type of specification on their SUV.
The Sorento can go 0 to 60 mph in just 7.4 seconds. This makes the Kia faster than both of its largest competitors- the Land Rover as well as the Toyota RAV4. It is almost impossible to tell during the ride that the SUV is even changing gears, which it does with ease. With all of this power and ability to get up and go one may think it will be a bumpy ride, but the Sorento begs to differ. While remaining powerful, the Sorento offers a smooth ride, on straight roads to hill filled rocks and bumps in the woods. Kia's Sorento was meant to be taken off road, without making passengers feel any part of it. Even on the roughest of terrains the Sorento remains quiet and smooth.
