2023 Kia SedonaSince its name was changed to Kia Carnival, the Kia Sedona may be forgotten. Some customers, on the other hand, may not notice the change and are wondering what improvements the 2023 Kia Sedona will bring. Unfortunately, Kia has yet to reveal anything about this vehicle’s advancement. As a result, people are speculating about what the forthcoming Kia Sedona will look like.

It’s not an SUV, but it’s also not a car. So, what exactly is a Kia Sedona? Many sources claim that this vehicle, particularly for its 2023 release, is an SUV-inspired vehicle.Kia is expected to give the Sedona (or Carnival, as the case may be) a longer hood on its top for the future release. Its front fa├žade is intended to exude a sporty and powerful ‘vibe.’ Apart from that, it’s difficult to pinpoint what’s new in this Kia Sedona.The car retains a sliding door and wide windows when viewed from the side. These are the ‘indicators,’ as many sites have stated, that this car is putting people carrier. The skid plate on the front of the automobile helps you understand that this vehicle is more of a people carrier than an SUV.Another feature of the 2023 Kia Sedona is its full-width LED taillights on the back, as well as its tiger-nose grille and high-beam headlights on the front. A diamond mesh is installed in the grille.The longer hood plays a game with the overall length of the car. This Kia range is 1.6 inches longer than the preceding model. This isn’t much, but it does go hand in with with the car’s longer wheelbase.

Meanwhile, Sedona’s cabin evolved from today’s minivan. We expect the 2023 model to have a central console that meets the dashboard, which features two 12.3-inch screens, one of which serves as a digital measuring cluster and the other as an infotainment screen, just like today’s Kias.Touch-sensitive climate control and a rotary gear selector are included on the screen. Lower-end models will include smaller screens, analog meters, and physical climate control buttons. In some markets, Android Auto and Apple CarPlay will be wireless as well.

And, at least in some marketplaces, there will be enough room for a large number of people. Seating for 11 guests in four rows will be available on several Carnivals. The three-line variant will be able to transport seven or eight passengers. A second row facing back is even available in one design.We’re hoping the new Sedona interior takes a major step forward in terms of high-end materials and technology options. Kia hasn’t revealed any mechanical specifics regarding the new Sedona, however we’re hoping for front-wheel drive and a naturally aspirated V-6 engine to remain.

We also have some information on global powertrain options, but nothing specific about what will be available in the United States. The 3.5-liter GDI V-6 produces 290 horsepower and 247 pound-feet of torque, which is an upgrade over the 3.3-liter V-6 offered in the 2021 Sedona, which produces 276 horsepower and 248 pound-feet of torque.There will also be a non-GDi V-6 with less power and a 2.2-liter diesel engine, both of which we weren’t expecting to see on American soil. Kia also mentioned a number of handling tweaks, including improved power steering racks, new suspension geometry, and altered spring levels, all of which should improve driving comfort and refinement.

2023 Kia Sedona Price & Release date

We don’t have any official information about Kia’s US release date, therefore we don’t know when the van will arrive in the United States. Kia says it will be available in Korea soon, with the rest of the world to follow, so we don’t expect it to arrive in American showrooms until next year as a 2023 model. We expect the price to grow slightly beyond the current model’s $31,520 starting price.
