The 2023 Kia Sportage’s off-road-oriented X-Pro trim is likely expanding to the brand’s larger Sorento and Telluride SUVs, as evidenced by recent trademarks Kia filed with the United States Patent and Trademark Office for “Sorento X-Pro” and “Telluride X-Pro.”
If the Sportage X-Pro is anything to go by, then the potential Sorento and Telluride X-Pros will add an extra dose of off-road-readiness to the brand’s three-row models. Expect the Sorento and Telluride X-Pro models to wear all-terrain tires and offer additional drive modes relative to their lesser kin—both SUVs may even sport a slight suspension lift, too.
Those in search of the X-Pro’s basic looks sans the off-pavement hardware can always opt for the pavement-focused X-Line trim. But wait, the Telluride isn’t available in X-Line guise. True, but this may change shortly, too, as Kia also filed a trademark for “Telluride X-Line.”
