2020 Sorento Towing Features

The Kia Sorento has plenty of available features you can add to enhance your towing experience:

  • The Locking Center Differential “locks” an axle in order to maximize traction by forcing your wheels to rotate at the same speed.
  • Torque Vectoring Corner Control optimizes the torque delivered to each wheel for superior control when you’re towing around a curve. Like the differential, it’s available on all models except for the baseline Sorento L.
  • 4-Wheel Disc Brakes
  • Tow Hitch designed specifically for the Sorento, it’s mounted directly onto the frame for extra security when towing larger loads.
  • Tow Hitch Chrome Cover
  • Tow Hitch Bike Attachment lets the whole family hit the bike trails near Sterling Heights. The bike attachment has room for up to four bicycles
