Like Johnny Cash, this SUV walks the lineby Bob Beamesderfer
Kia Sorento – 2007 Review: Kia’s midsize SUV is the proverbial horse of a different color: Cloaked in a body that looks more like a crossover lives a real, four-wheel drive truck. With 260 horsepower and 262 lb.-ft. of torque, it matches or exceeds its closest SUV competitors. While it’s not quite as pure an off-road vehicle, it’s no wimp. With 8.2 inches of ground clearance, it’s only an inch shorter than the 2007 Jeep Liberty. Inside, design and quality ensure mundane driving is as comfortable and enjoyable as commuting gets. The Sorento has what it takes to be a mule, but wears a prettier face. While the nearly $30,000 price tag might make some people blanch, the Kia is a worthy vehicle for money.
