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.

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.
