Moab, Utah is home to one of America’s most formidable trails, Hell’s Gate. The outlying outcrops, steep mountains, and tough trails have defeated some of the most well-known off-road vehicles in the industry. Even with that reputation, Hell’s Gate was no match for the 2019 Kia Sorento. The SUV climbed the mountain with relative ease, effectively setting it apart from the pack as one of the most versatile vehicles in the industry.
To truly grasp the impressive nature of this feat, one requires an introduction to Hell’s Gate, one of the most formidable off-road trails in the country. A professional driver got behind the wheel of the 2019 Kia Sorento with the goal of traversing everything the trial had to offer.
Equipped with all-wheel drive, the Kia Sorento proved its mettle. The family SUV climbed the steep mountain and cleared rocky outcrops with little trouble. In the end, the six-and-a-half mile trek was no match for the 2019 Sorento.
While not many family drivers will be taking their three-row SUVs off-roading, it’s good to know what the Kia Sorento is capable of. With a capable all-wheel drive system, excellent ground clearance, and a comfortable interior, there are few SUVs that can match it.
We here at Evansville Kia can’t help but be impressed by the 2019 Kia Sorento’s off-road capabilities.
