Hey everyone, it’s Andrew here and today I’m going to be reviewing the new 2025 Kia Sorento X-Pro. Before we get into the article, I want to give a huge shout out and thank you to Jerry Saner Kia here in Salt Lake for letting me spend some time with this Sorento.

Under the hood, we have a turbocharged 2.5L 4-cylinder that goes to an 8-speed automatic transmission. This engine produces 281 horsepower and 311 lb-ft of torque. Fuel economy is rated at 20 MPG around town and 27 MPG on the highway.

The X-Pro trim includes all-wheel drive and a center locking differential, enhancing its off-road capability. Additionally, the vehicle can tow up to 4,500 pounds with trailer brakes, though without them, it’s limited to 1,654 pounds​.

The front seats are equipped with power-adjustable settings and offer both heating and ventilation functions. The interior is crafted with soft-touch materials, a sophisticated wood trim finish, and a premium headliner, all highlighted by a panoramic sunroof. The SX Prestige trim further elevates the cabin with leather upholstery, a heated steering wheel, and an advanced Bose audio system.

The driving experience in the Sorento X-Pro is impressive. It handles well on both paved and unpaved roads, with its all-terrain tires providing good grip. The suspension system offers a comfortable ride, absorbing bumps and maintaining stability. The turbocharged engine provides ample power, and the dual-clutch transmission offers smooth and quick shifts. While the vehicle performs well off-road, its on-road comfort and quietness make it a great family hauler​.

Overall, the 2025 Kia Sorento X-Pro is a versatile and capable SUV, ideal for those seeking a blend of off-road capability and on-road comfort.

Let me know if you’d prefer the hybrid version for better fuel economy or stick with the turbocharged gas version for more power.
