What Kind of Updates Will the 2021 Kia Sedona Bring?

2021 Kia Sedona Speculation and Predictions 

The Kia Sedona has long been a favorite among parents and families. With its family-first philosophy and spacious cabin and cargo area, the Sedona simply just makes sense for large families. This Kia minivan has seen an array of changes over the years since it first debuted for the 2002 model year. The Sedona first started as an affordable alternative to pricier family-haulers and has since developed into a stylish and tech-forward people-mover.  

But what’s next for the Kia Sedona and what kind of updates will the next model bring? Here’s our 2021 Kia Sedona speculation and predictions.

2021 Kia Sedona – What to Expect 

We currently don’t know much about the upcoming 2021 Kia Sedona aside from what has been seen in spy shots taken earlier this year. Based on the updates and redesigns the rest of the Kia lineup is showing, we can expect that the 2021 Sedona will follow this same path.

2021 Kia Sedona Design 

Recent updates to classic Kia models, like the Cadenza and Sorento, are showing more chiseled edges, bolder grilles, and all-around refreshed designs. We can expect that the 2021 Sedona will follow suit. Our prediction is that Kia is going to square off the rounded look the Sedona currently sports and chisel out some detailing for the 2021 model. We anticipate a more rugged and interesting look for the 2021 Sedona along with a bolder, more all-encompassing front grille.  

2021 Kia Sedona Specs 

We don’t expect major changes to come to the powertrain the Kia Sedona is offering. We suspect that the 2021 Sedona model will carry over the 3.3-liter V6 engine that currently sits in the 2020 models and delivers 276 horsepower and 248 pound-feet of torque. Will we see a hybrid Sedona option? We aren’t sure, but with the addition of a hybrid powertrain to the Sorento, we wouldn’t be surprised if this becomes an option for the 2021 Sedona.

When Will Kia Release the 2021 Sedona? 

Based on previous releases from the Kia brand we anticipate seeing 2021 Kia Sedona models roll onto the Friendly Kia lot sometime in the second half of this year or sometime in early 2021. We are hopeful for a full model debut sometime in the coming months, so stay tuned to the Friendly Kia blog for additional updates on the upcoming 2021 Sedona.
