Updated with first time ever inside spy shots.

The 2014 Kia Sorento SUV received a big updated for the new model year, but if you look at it, changes are not pretty much than front and rear facelift and a revised interior. That’s why Kia is now working in the next generation Sorento that will be arrive at the United States as a 2016 model year.

[ads id=”0″ style=”float:left;padding:5px;”]From the side, it looks like the 2016 model will get a more upright grille similar to the recently introduced Cadenza premium sedan, compared with the more back-swept style on the current Sorento. Although retaining Kia’s trademark “tiger nose” grille, the grille on the 2016 mule appears to have a gently arching upper edge, as well as cutting a little deeper into the front fascia. Looks like if Kia is using the CrossGT Concept to inspire the next-gen Sorento.

Details are extremely limited at the moment but we expect more power from the 2.4-liter GDi and V6 3.3-liter GDi engines, along with a Hybrid version which could be available from day one. Although difficult to say with certainty, it appears the 2016 model may be adopting the longer wheelbase of the three-row Hyundai Santa Fe.

It’s unknown if the Sorento will be offered in two sizes, such as the Hyundai Santa Fe and Santa Fe Sport or if there will be one size for future Sorento models.
