What Are the Best Kia Models For Towing And Hauling?

Not all cars are produced to tow. Often people don’t really comprehend this. They tend to operate their non-tow-friendly cars to tow and haul massive weights. This can damage the vehicle beyond repair over a certain period. 

That’s why it's important to buy a model built to tow. If you’re looking for such a purchase at a pocket-friendly cost, then you must consider a Kia. 

Four Kia Models in Durham With The Highest Tow Capacity


If light towing is what you’re considering, then the 2019 Kia Sportage is a great way to go. The car can tow up to 2000 pounds without causing any drag. While Kia claims that the FWD has a base towing of 1650 pounds, owners have confirmed both the FWD and the AWD are capable of 2000-pound towing. 

2. 2018 KIA SEDONA

Higher up the ladder is the 2018 Kia Sedona. The Sedona’s 2016 variant had a towing capacity of 2000 pounds (just like the Sportage). However, the 2018 Sedona contains an upgraded potential of 3,500 pounds. The car’s V6 engine powers this enhancement and in addition produces it the extra juice it requires to haul a few pounds more. 


The Kia car with the highest towing capacity on the current market is the 2019 Kia Sorento. The Sorento’s base towing capacity total of 2,000 pounds on the 2.4-liter engine. But the 3.3-liter V6 engine with 290hp and Dynamax AWD offers a max hauling capacity of 5,000 pounds! Feel free to test drive the 2019 Kia Sorento in Cary. 


Matching the Sorento in its towing capacity is the new-to-the-market 2020 Kia Telluride. Set to present its pan-global debut soon, the model is said to offer a max towing capacity of 5,000 pounds. Kia has still not revealed what the base towing would be, but it is expected to be significant too.
