Trying to determine if the 2011 Kia Sorento is flat towable. I've searched Dinghy Guides and Kia's website but still unable to find out whether this vehicle is flat towable. One site said it was but didn't give any details about procedures required to complete the process. Can you help?? Thanks

The 2011 KIA Sorento has the same new chassis (the SUV Hyundai's and KIA'S switched from a frame type chassis to unibody recently) as the 2010 Hyuandai Santa Fe.

HYUNDAI Santa Fe GLS 2WD 3,727LBs No restrictions with the Manual 2wd transmission 4 down. Same with the Tuscon which also shares the same platform with the KIA. (Per Motorhome Magazine TOAD Guide)

Remco, the big TOAD experts, also says that the Hyundai "Five speed manual transmission is towable as is."

Go to the Remco application site. I believe it is a no-go for the automatics.
FWD is on dolly. All wheel drive is trailered.
