Kia Has A Big Luxury SUV Bound For Detroit
November 17th, 2020 1:19 PM Share
Kia teased Tuesday a “future premium large SUV” it has in mind for the North American International Auto Show next week.
The gold-colored SUV is heavy on promises and short on details. According to the automaker, the concept is fitted with “state-of-the-art health-and-wellness technology,” but no word on powertrain.
So does that mean it’s powered like a “Flintstones” car, or something?
We’re guessing that it’s Genesis-sized, but that’s just a guess. Kia has a 3.8-liter V-6 and a 5-liter V-8 in the bag, so power would likely come from one of those options.
We’ll have to wait to see what the official specs are when the concept is unveiled next week. But we’re not going to work out in it, if that’s what Kia has in mind.

Blood Pressure Monitor? Aromatherapy?
I should clarify my earlier post. Luxury is the last resort for a manufacturer who is lazy, out of ideas or both. Instead of developing a manufacturing process for higher quality vehicles or coming up with innovative ideas, they pass this schlock off on us. More engine, more ride height, more Pep Boys (depending on how that goes) and more MSRP. Trying to promise plebs the chance to feel like high rollers with any vehicle in any brand's lineup is uninspired.
Anyone think this might be the base platform for the Hyundai Santa Cruz?
I think it's time for somebody to step forward and tell our government that a CUV is NOT a truck; it's a car-based station wagon.
