Kia Sorento X-Line SUV Concepts Look Ready For Adventure

The all-new 2021 Kia Sorento is making waves or, in this case, going off-road


  • The Sorento Yosemite Edition is for mountain exploration.

  • The Sorento Zion Edition eats the desert for dessert.

  • According to Kia, they offer “Trail Readiness…”


Kia dealt the large midsize SUV segment a serious blow when they launched the Telluride last year. As they did for it, Kia has introduced modified SUVs to show their potential. These two Sorento Concepts are based on the X-Line trim and they really look the part.

Both 2021 Kia Sorento X-Line SUVs were customized by LGE-CTE Motorsports based out of San Dimas, California. The inspiration behind each truck is simple enough – their names spell it out. To start, both are fitted with 20-inch wheels on which are mounted 32-inch tires, skid plates, brush guards, and touches of satin chrome finish. Thanks to the wheel/tire combo, the Sorento’s ground clearance grows to 8.3 inches which delivers a favorable impact on approach and departure angles.

The Sorento Yosemite Edition is painted Pine Green with a matte finish, with gloss and matte black accents. Sorento Zion Edition gets a gloss Desert Sand paint hue with gloss black accents. Both are equipped with must-have roof racks. The Yosemite’s is beefy while the Zion’s is a full-length cargo top.

The ability to customize is an important feature for many SUV and truck buyers. It is for this reason that Kia will launch a range of accessories for the Sorento that will include roof rack crossbars, tow hitches for trailers, and side steps.
