Video: Watch the 2014 KIA Sorento's off road review

See also

Starting at $24,100, the 2014 KIA Sorento reenters the fray with a host of upgrades. There is a 2.4-liter, four-cylinder available in the base model, but our fully loaded 'Limited' tester came with the new, 290 horsepower, 3.3-liter V6 that makes 252 lbs-feet of torque, just above 5,000 rpm. Equipped with a slick all-wheel drive (AWD) system, the 2014 KIA Sorento surprised many as to its skill off the beaten path.

In this video, Roman Mica and I take the 2014 KIA Sorento on to some challenging terrain for a crossover. We use this course to determine the vehicle's capability; if a crossover or SUV does well here, we know it will do well in a Colorado winter.

The one thing we didn't cover in this video was the surprisingly supple ride of the 2014 KIA Sorento. With a revised and softened suspension, the 2014 KIA Sorento is an excellent cruiser. The updated interior and standard amenities are impressive too.

About the only thing keeping me back from bliss is the exterior design. KIA has built some beautiful machines, but the Sorento is kind of simple and lacks daring.

Check out this video review and see what you think!
