This is the new 2019 Kia Sorento SX Limited and I was lucky enough to be a part of an awesome production crew challenged by the engineers of this vehicle to tackle one of the most intimidating trails in Moab Utah... Hell's Revenge.
The only modifications we made to this brand new Kia Sorento was to mount up a set of BFGoodrich KO2 all terrain tires on the stock wheels, put a skid plate under the oil pan and on the hardest part of the trail... the climb up Hell's Gate... we disconnected the sway bars. That's it!
We also enlisted the help of one of the most experienced off-roaders in the area Dan Mick to do the spotting and his son Richard did the driving.
Yes, this is a "fish out of water" type of scenario and the Sorento wasn't designed for this type of off road use, but the engineers were so confident in the build quality of the drive-train that they gave us the keys and said GO FOR IT! And while I've never owned a Kia before, I totally respect this type of product torture test. Other than the back bumper cover being pulled loose on that one corner, there was no other serious damage to this thing.
This is my first commercial as a host and I had an absolute blast doing it.
Please help support my efforts to do more of this type of thing by liking and sharing this video for me!
