Kia Cross GT Concept Debuts at the Chicago Auto Show

Kia has unveiled the Cross GT Concept at the Chicago Auto Show.

The Cross GT is purely a conceptual vehicle with no real production plans, but it does reveal Kia’s intentions to potentially offer a larger premium SUV than the current Sorento in certain markets.

The Cross GT is powered by a 3.8-litre V6 hybrid connected to a 8-speed automatic and torque-vectoring all-wheel-drive. Combined power output is 400 horsepower and 500 lb ft of torque. Purely on electric power it has a range of up to 20 milses.

Exterior highlights include short overhangs, long wheelbase, prominent grille, rear hinged suicide doors and a sloping bonnet. Interior features leather upholstery, American Walnut trim, touch screen infotainment system, four individual bucket seats and plenty of luggage space.

Compared to the Sorento, the Cross GT’s wheelbase is longer by 399mm, and its overall length of 4897mm is 213mm greater than Sorento. It is also 124mm wider, but the overall height is actually 41mm shorter.
