The 2021 Ford Explorer
vs. The 2021 Kia Sorento

The Ford Motor Company has been perfecting the art of SUVs for generations. As an all-american company that always puts our customers first, it should come as no surprise that the latest interaction of utility vehicle greatness, the 2021 Ford Explorer, not only offers better performance and more space than competing SUVs like the 2021 Kia Sorento, but it also offers incredible technology at your fingertips.

Exhilarating Explorer Performance

When it comes to SUVs, wouldn't you rather have a vehicle that performs to the highest level every time you need it?

Under the hood of the 2021 Ford Explorer, you'll find a 2.3L I-4 premium gasoline engine that's capable of producing 300 horsepower and 310 lb-ft of torque. In addition, this ride comes standard with a 10-speed automatic transmission with overdrive that allows for smooth shifting and an incredible maximum trailer weight capacity of 5,300 pounds.

By comparison, the 2021 Kia Sorento doesn't offer nearly as much oomph. This ride offers a 2.5L I-4 regular gasoline engine that produces just 191 horsepower and only 181 lb-ft of torque. In addition, the Sorento's 8-speed automatic transmission, though it does include overdrive and auto-manual mode, only allows for a maximum trailer weight capacity of just 2,000 pounds.
