Trim Levels of the 2017 Sorento that Can Go Off-Road

The 2017 Sorento has seven trim levels in all, and six of them have the ability to come in models with all-wheel-drive (AWD), which is ideal for off-road conditions, as AWD reduces slippage when the going gets a little slick and also gives you more power when you need to push through hilly terrain. It also improves towing power.

Here’s the trim options of the 2017 Sorento that come with this extra power and ability. And note that all seven trim levels of the Sorento also can come in a front-wheel-drive version, too.
