Any towing a 17Z w/Kia Sorrento V6?

I know it's a long shot...

But is anyone out there towing a 17Z(or similar) with a new Kia Sorrento V6 SUV?

I'm looking to sell my 17Z, and a potential buyer has this SUV, and is wondering if this SUV can handle it?

and the V6 AWD at 5000 lbs. Not sure of payload.

One thing I would suggest is that you make no implication regarding the suitability of the TV as part of your sale process. That's a decision for the buyer to make.

Agree! Many professional lot lizards would just say, "Sure it will tow it!"

I looked up the numbers last month:

2014 Kia Sorrento V6
Towing Capacity: 3500#
GVWR: 5182#
Min. Curb Weight: 3894#
= ~1,288# 'payload' or amount the vehicle can carry.

Tongue weight is published at 342#, but is likely much heavier.
17Z unloaded vehicle weight (published) is 2,825#. (3500# GVWR)



She wants to come over with the Kia Sorronto and hook it up, and take it for a test drive/tow. I'm saying no, since the WD hitch won't be setup for the Kia, and they don't have a Brake Controller installed....

The only way I'd agree to that is cash in hand first.

Pretty much. I'm not that hard-up to sell it anyway, as I really do like it.

We'll see how cramped it is this weekend, since it's our first time out with our two sons. Oldest is 3yrs old, and and our newest 6 week old.

Im sure you will have a blast. Some of the best trips we had were when our daughter was a baby. Time passes too quickly.

I have a 2006 kia Sorrento with that same engine. We used it to tow our old 1995 Rockwood freedom popup until I bought a Dodge Ramcharger. Its weight was about 1800. I would not tow anything bigger. The front of a full size trailer would kill it.
