The 2019 Kia Sorento is now available at Sansone Kia. This new SUV is so multifaceted, that there is still much consumers may not be familiar with regarding everything it has to offer. Perhaps they’re familiar with the vehicle in general, but less so on how the 2019 model compares with previous iterations. Let’s look at some fun facts at a glance.

First, the standard engine is a naturally aspirated 2.4-liter four-cylinder engine that delivers 185 hp and 178 lb-ft of torque. If you want a little more power, you can upgrade to the 3.3-liter V6 engine for 290 hp and 252 lb-ft of torque.

Second, all trims beyond the base model come with all-wheel drive, utilizing the automaker’s Dynamax Intelligent system. This system evenly and continuously distributes torque between wheel axles to ensure better lateral stability.

Third, for the first time ever, the Kia Sorento also integrates the UVO Intelligence system, which allows drivers to remotely start the car, turn on/off headlights, and lock/unlock doors with a simple smartphone app. The same app also provides a report on the vehicle’s health and notifications on due maintenance. With this nifty app, you will always know when your vehicle is due for a visit to our Kia service center near Edison, NJ.

Finally, numerous safety technologies are included. This includes rear cross traffic alert, forward collision avoidance, and lane keeping assist just to list a few. In addition, there is also an optional liftgate that opens automatically if you keep your keys in your pocket and stand next to the liftgate for three seconds.
