The beautifully rugged 2011 Sorento. A new way to see the world. A new way for the world to see you. 03 CROSSOVER REFINEMENT, suv CAPABILITY READY for YOUR WORLD The refinement of a European-inspired crossover and the back-roads-ready performance of an SUV come together as one in the all-new 2011 Sorento. Sorento’s new unibody architecture and four-wheel independent suspension perform with smooth, quiet assurance. Potholes and rough pavement can’t upset it; darting traffic and sudden stops won’t rattle its composure or yours. When the roads end or the weather turns wild, Sorento helps you advance with confidence, thanks to the availability of full-time all-wheel drive (AWD) with an electronic locking differential. Sorento also offers a choice of powertrains including four-cylinder and V6 engines, and new six-speed manual and Steptronic gated automatic transmissions for a perfect blend of performance and fuel efficiency. It’s your world, and Sorento’s ready for it. 05 > Sorento EX-V6 Luxury shown in Blue Jeans.
