The actual Kia Borrego midsize SUV debuted for 2009 and never lived to find an additional model year. It was that you can buy in two trim levels: LX and even EX. Simultaneously models happened to be on the market with a choice of 2 engines: a 3.8-liter V6 which cranked out 276 horsepower as well as 267 pound-feet of torque, or perhaps a 4.6-liter V8 which released 337 hp plus 323 lb-ft of torque. Transmissions different subject to engine choice, with all the V6 models getting a five-speed automatic and even V8 models a six-speed automatic. The base LX not to mention EX had been two-wheel drive, alongside four-wheel drive for sale as a choice. Properly equipped, the particular V8 may tow a healthy seven,500 pounds.
The particular Kia Borrego LX came standard with 17-inch wheels, rooftop rails, back parking sensors, an integrated tow hitch as well as a six-speaker sound program with CD/MP3 player, satellite radio, USB port and a great auxiliary jack. The actual EX trim added goods like energy front seats and also dual-zone automatic climate control. The particular V8 versions of those trims added a very few additional goods. Choice packages upgraded the sound program and also added qualities like leather seating, a rear-seat entertainment system along with a navigation system.
The particular Borrego’s exterior shape ended up being reasonably clean plus no-nonsense (you may say anonymous as well), with a slightly low and also wide stance that enhanced car stability. Inside, the actual overall top quality of contents was very good, plus for the actual the majority of part, the actual layout of controls plus instrumentation ended up being straight-forward and also simple to use.
Every one of the trims showcased 3 rows of seating, offering it seven-person ability, and happened to be fairly simple to be able to stow as well as put back into area. In terms of cargo room, with all the 50/50 third-row seats folded flat, this particular SUV might swallow up a lot of gear, furniture and even family pets. Regrettably, alongside all the seats up, cargo ability had been reduced to be able to a meager 12.4 cubic feet. The particular Kia Borrego in addition lacked an energy liftgate.
