SUVs are available in a variety of different sizes but no matter the size, one thing is for sure about SUVs, they are some of the most practical vehicles on the market. Powerful engines, spacious interiors, towing capability and more, SUVs can do just about everything. In the market for a new SUV? Check out our comparison of the 2017 Kia Sorento vs 2017 Ford Explorer and see how the 2017 Sorento can be the perfect match for you.
While the Ford Explorer is only available as a 7-passenger SUV, the Kia Sorento is available as either a five- or seven-passenger SUV. This ability allows customers to configure the Sorento to their own personal needs. Out of the two SUVs, the 2017 Sorento is the only one that is offered with available all-wheel drive. Both the 2017 Sorento and 2017 Explorer have a base towing capacity of 2,000 pounds and maximum towing capacity for both SUVs is 5,000 pounds. The Kia Sorento does exceed the fuel rating of the Explorer, with 21 city mpg and 28 highway mpg the Sorento receives up to 5 extra mpg.
The 2017 Sorento has adequate cargo space with 11.3 cubic feet behind the third row, 38 cubic feet behind the second and a maximum of 73.5 cubic feet of cargo space all said and done. While that number is more than you will find on other five-passenger SUVs it is on the smaller size for those who go for the seven-passenger seating configurations. Kia has made the Sorento very versatile to make it easy for passengers sitting in the rear seats or for loading up the cargo area. The second-row seats slide, recline and fold flat for added convenience. Interested in the 2017 Kia Sorento? Come in to any one of our three Moritz Kia locations throughout Fort Worth, TX.
