According to the Ministry of Environment’s Emissions and Noise Certification Center, the new Carnival powertrain consists on the new R2.2 diesel engine and a 3.5-liter V6 gasoline engine, which combines a 8-speed automatic transmission. The 3.5-liter engine has a maximum output of 294 horsepower.

However, there is a possibility of production fluctuations due to Corona19. The new Carnival Diesel is equipped with a SmartStream 2.2D engine. The engine is the same as Kia’s new Sorento Diesel, and it features less weight, improved fuel efficiency and improved noise and vibration by using new injectors and cylinder friction reduction technology.

On the other hand, unlike Sorento, which combines a wet 8-speed DCT transmission, the new Carnival has an 8-speed automatic transmission. The highest output is 202 horsepower. The 3.5-liter natural intake engine, which replaces the existing 3.3-liter gasoline engine, combines an 8-speed automatic transmission to achieve a maximum output of 294 horsepower, 14 horsepower higher than the previous one.
