2017 is a banner model year for Kia, as we not only get to celebrate the many happy returns of the redesigned Kia Sportage crossover and the upcoming hybrid class that includes the 2017 Kia Niro HUV, we also get to bask in the sheer power and value of the 2017 Kia Sorento. How powerful and value-packed is it? We’re putting it up against the 2017 Nissan Pathfinder and 2017 Ford Explorer. Trust us, we’re not afraid to see how the Sorento fares.

2017 Kia Sorento

What this means is the 2017 Sorento not only saves you money at the fuel pump, it has the best coverage if a part were to need replacing.  And with a starting MSRP that is thousands less than the 2017 Explorer and likely the 2017 Pathfinder (though the Pathfinder’s prices are not official as of 7/25/2016), you have more money for that vacation, college fund, or party you’ve always wanted to throw.
