2019 Kia K9 – K900 – Video
Designed as a collaborative effort between Kia’s Korean and U.S. design studios, the 2019 K900 is longer than its predecessor and features unique design cues such as a tiger nose grille featuring 176 jewel-like cells that create a ripple effect. Its headlights and taillights sport a new duplex pattern to give it more presence and to show off its wide stance. Chrome trim around the exhaust tips, windows, grille, and above the side skirts complement the standard 19-inch alloy wheels, which are also finished in a bright chrome look.
Powering the 2019 K900 is a 3.3-liter twin-turbo V-6 with 365 hp and 376 lb-ft of torque paired to a second-generation eight-speed automatic transmission. All-wheel drive with torque vectoring comes standard on the K900 and can send up to 50 percent of torque to the front wheels in Normal model. In Sport mode, the system is rear-biased and sends 80 percent of torque to the rear wheels. The 420-hp 5.0-liter V-8 and rear-wheel drive will no longer be offered on the K900.
