2017 Kia Cadenza Release Details Improvements and Redesign

When a young Will Smith said “Parents Just Don’t Understand” in the 1988 hit rap song, he was talking about how an older generation didn’t know how hard he had it, back when he was still a teenager.  In the case of the Kia Cadenza, the second generation of this large premium sedan is being born for the 2017 model year, so we can say in a way that the previous years’ models are the parents of the upcoming Cadenza model, and though the “parents” will surely try, they may not fully understand how amazing their “kids” – the 2017 models are.

While the 2017 Kia Cadenza will surely dazzle with its redesign, it also will sport improvements in other areas.  So let’s get down to it and look at details of its release.

Thank You, Hamsters and Christopher Walken: Kia Clashes with Chrysler, Comes Out On Top

Kia Soul Hamster Ads vs. Jim Gaffigan 2017 Chrysler Pacifica

The Chrysler Building is a massive 1,000-foot structure with an unmistakable look to it, with rounded-off top accents in the Art Deco art style that was popular when it was first built in 1930.  Chrysler vehicles have been around even longer, with the first model rolling off the assembly line in the 1920s.  The brand is an American classic, but our Kia vehicles dispatch their model offerings with ease.  How is this so?  When you look at the matchups of our 2017 and 2016 Kia vehicles vs. the 2017 and 2016 Chrysler vehicles, you’ll see what we mean.  Then we’ll take a lighthearted look at how the Kia spokespeople fare against Chrysler’s as we put the Kia Soul Hamster commercials vs. comedian Jim Gaffigan and his ads for the 2017 Chrysler Pacifica.
