Kia Motors has unveiled the custom-built Sorento Yosemite Edition and Zion Edition, which were shown during the brand’s virtual national dealer meeting in the US.
The two wilderness-themed SUVs build upon the production Sorento X-Line model.
The X-Line model highlights the car’s off-road prowess with unique 20-inch wheels and an increased ride height to 210mm for improved approach and departure angles.
It also features a more advanced all-wheel-drive with snow mode, and a more robust roof rack than the previous Kia Sorento.
Customised by LGE-CTE Motorsports of San Dimas, California, each vehicle receives its namesake and inspiration from the outdoor environments found in America’s great 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 meanwhile, is a desert escape vehicle made for stomping dunes, painted in ‘Desert Sand’, a gloss finish with gloss black accents.
Both feature custom fender flares that sit atop 20-inch wheels and 32-inch all-terrain tyres. Body armor includes custom skid plates and brush guards in a satin chrome finish.
For packing gear, the Yosemite edition wears a brawny roof rack, while the Zion Edition comes equipped with a full-length cargo top.
The duo will be making special appearances around the US to capture the imagination of adventurers and enthusiasts, alike.
