Kia Understands Buyers Want a Tougher-Looking SUV, So They Made These Special Edition Sorentos

Since the arrival of Seltos and Telluride, Kia is starting to understand that people want their SUVs a bit more robust and rugged. As the next step in this capability-focused product strategy, they wasted no time in giving their all-new 2021 Sorento a trail-ready makeover not yet seen from the brand.

The pair of custom-built Sorento SUVs–the Yosemite and Zion–were showed off. Starting with the already capable Sorento X Line, a variant with off-road prowess and 211 mm of ground clearance, they took inspiration from outdoor environments found in America’s national parks. 

The Sorento Yosemite Edition is a dream build for high elevation adventuring and mountain living, painted in “Pine Green” in a matte finish with gloss and matte black accents. The Sorento Zion Edition is a desert escape vehicle made for stomping dunes, painted in “Desert Sand” in a gloss finish with gloss black accents.

Both feature custom fender flares that sit atop 20-inch wheels and 32-inch all-terrain tires. Body armor includes custom skid plates and brush guards in a satin chrome finish. For packing gear, the Yosemite edition dons a brawny roof rack, while the Zion Edition comes equipped with a full-length cargo top.

While most customers will not take their Sorento to the level of customization seen on the Yosemite and Zion Editions, many have shown a penchant for personalizing their Kia SUVs. To satisfy that desire, Kia will start offering a beefed-up range of accessories for the Sorento.

The 2021 Kia Sorento is expected to arrive in the Philippines next year.
