Kia Sorento Towing Features

When it comes to towing capability on your Boulder City adventures, raw power is only one part of the picture. Specialized Kia Sorento tow package features to keep you safe and steady, wherever the road may lead:

  • Locking Center Differential – The available Locking Center Differential is a great addition to any adventure-ready Sorrento. It works by forcing your wheels to rotate at the same speed, maximizing traction.
  • Torque Vectoring Corner Control – This feature fine-tunes torque distribution to each wheel, ensuring superior control while towing around curves. Upgrade with this feature on any trim beside the base Sorento L.
  • 4-Wheel Disc Brakes – Rather than a combination of disc and drum brakes, the Kia Sorento delivers more reliable braking performance with disc brakes applied to all four wheels.
  • Sorento drivers will also enjoy a full suite of advanced safety and driver assistance features.
