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.
