2017 Kia Sorento L and LX vs. 2017 Sorento EX vs. 2017 Sorento LX V6 and SX V6
Whether you've been exposed to the Kia Sorento through commercials starring luminaries like Pierce Brosnan or you've seen one on the road, let's get one thing clear. This is an SUV with power, space for cargo and passengers, and a starting price that leaves the competition in the dust. So when we compare the trim levels of the 2017 Sorento, pitting the L and LX trims vs. the EX trim vs. the LX V6, EX V6, SX V6 and SX Limited V6 trims, this is not to disparage any of the various trims but to fine-tune which kind of 2017 Sorento best fits your needs.
If it's power you're after, then pass "Go," collect your cash, and then proceed directly to the four V6 trims of the 2017 Sorento. All four come with a V6 engine that packs in 290 HP and 252 lb.-ft. of torque, making you a major player on the pavement, or on muddy off-the-beaten-path byways. Whichever trim option you choose, you also get 73 cubic feet for cargo and can fit up to seven passengers, who will be able to enjoy an available 10-speaker audio system and apps like Android Auto or Apple CarPlay, which is new to 2017 Kia models.

Thrill to a Kia Sorento in Wichita Falls TX!
As impressive as the 2017 Sorento's V6 trims are, if you would like better fuel economy, you can opt for the L or LX trims, both of which come with 185 HP but still boast the cargo room of the larger models; in fact you get a slight uptick to 73.5 cubic feet. These trims get 21 mpg city, 28 mpg highway, giving you savings which is comparable with smaller SUVs or large sedans. A nice blend between the two ends of the spectrum is the EX trim, which has 240 HP screaming out of its turbocharged 4-cyl engine and still gets great fuel economy at 20 mpg city, 27 highway.
