Sorento Towing Features

The Kia Sorento looks to more than capable power to tow up to 5,000 lbs. Further towing features include:

  • Fully-Active Dynamax™ All-Wheel-Drive (AWD): Monitors road and driving conditions to ensure performance remains optimal through every journey. Whether driving during rainstorms in Oakville or across off-road trails around Fenton, you can count on dependable all-wheel traction.
  • Locking Center Differential: A driver-activated locking center differential delivers added low-speed traction when facing poor road conditions, perfect when you’re towing heavy.
  • Torque Vectoring Cornering Control (TVCC): Input sensors detect unwanted under-steer during cornering to maintain vehicle stability even when you’re pulling a laden trailer.

You’ll also have the benefits of standard safety features, including: Brake Assist System, Vehicle Stability Management, Traction Control System, Electronic Stability Control, Hill Start Assist Control, and Electronic Brake-Force Distribution.
