Pricing Slides Higher for Redesigned 2021 Kia Sorento

The redesigned 2021 Kia Sorento starts thousands higher than the outgoing generation, but the chasm comes in part due to reshuffled trim levels that lose the 2020’s bargain-priced L trim. As such, the new Sorento begins with the LX, which starts at $30,560 (all prices include destination). That’s up $2,450 from the 2020 Sorento L. Versus the outgoing LX, pricing escalates by $1,350.

The base price gets you the 2021 Sorento’s new base engine, a 2.5-liter four-cylinder. Climb up the trim ladders and opt for the available turbocharged 2.5-liter four-cylinder, and pricing eventually tops $40,000:

  • LX: $30,560
  • S: $33,060
  • EX: $36,160
  • SX: $39,160
  • SX Prestige: $41,760
  • SX Prestige X-Line: $43,760

The 2021 Kia Sorento hits dealers later this year. LX and S models get the 2.5-liter four-cylinder, while higher trims have the turbo 2.5-liter. The all-wheel-drive SX Prestige X-Line excepted, prices above are for front-wheel-drive models; the Sorento’s optional all-wheel drive adds $1,800 to $2,000, depending on trim. Beyond what’s included in each trim level, the list of factory options is short — ranging from a panoramic moonroof on S and EX trims to premium paint across the board. Expect a factory-loaded SX Prestige AWD X-Line to top out a bit over $44,000. That’s similar to the outgoing Sorento’s ceiling.
