Notes from the Rebellion: 2018 Kia Sedona Superweapon Detailed

2018 Kia Sedona vs 2017 Kia Sedona

We are the rebellion.

We have spent our lives pursued by a coalition known as BIG3. This axis, made up of T***TA, H*ND* and NI**AN, have hunted us with haste and fervor, seeking to exterminate the inspiration, creativity and people-centered engineering that flows through our veins.

We are KIA, and after years of running from BIG3, sleeping in trees and never knowing who to trust, we have found refuge. We don’t know how long this refuge will last, but as long as we enjoy peace, we shall set about proclaiming the truth – a new dawn is coming.

Our team of survivors and warriors has been working tirelessly on the next rendition of the thing that ground BIG3’s gears for the last 12 months – the 2017 Kia Sedona. Our scientists and engineers have spent sleepless days and nights perfecting the design and features of the newest model, ensuring it offers reliability and safety as well as imbuing it with revolutionary KIA personality.

This will be the vehicle that BIG3 tries to squash for the next 12 months. We know they will fail, because we know that the people are waiting – waiting to be inspired…waiting to be excited about driving…waiting to rebel against the stale choices BIG3 has thrown to them like table scraps for the last 20+ years.

Here’s what you, the people, can expect from the 2018 Kia Sedona.

2018 Kia Sedona Specs and Features

The 2018 Kia Sedona sees a refresh of the 2017 Kia Sedona, the model that has fought so valiantly against BIG3 since its release a year ago today. It offers a wide front grille and fascia because nothing can shut the mouth of truth!

Sweeping back toward the panoramic side windows is a broad shoulder set, constructed to hold high the head of hope that rides upon this model. A squared off back hatch and interior ensure that you’re able to bring whatever gear or personnel your rebellion requires.

With the color-recognition technology of BIG3 growing ever-better, the 2018 Kia Sedona has been constructed with new color options. Beachwood Pearl has been discontinued, as it is too easily recognized by their spies. Silky Silver joins the lineup, replacing Bright Silver.

Finally, Celestial Blue replaces Midnight Sapphire, because our darkest point is behind us and we look to the skies for our ambitions. Here are the remaining specifications on the 2018 Kia Sedona:
