Not only does it offer a host of safety features, a comfortable, enjoyable interior, and efficient performance, but it delivers on utility as well. Find out what the 2019 Kia Sorento towing capacity is before your next big St. James adventure.

2019 Kia Sorento Engine Options

The standard 2.4L DOHC 16-valve I4 engine delivers 185 hp and 178 lb-ft of torque. With an EPA-estimated fuel efficiency of 22 mpg/city and 29 mpg/highway, it’s clear that you don’t have to own a gas guzzler to be able to tow.
