The new car is referred to as either the PacWest Adventure Sorento or the Sorento Trail Edition. Kia hasn't revealed much about the SEMA show car, expect that it's fitted with a custom suspension setup and a snorkel intake system.
The Korean marque also says that the car's custom paint job is "inspired by the lush forests" of the Pacific Northwest, which encompasses the mountains and woodlands that cover much of British Columbia in Canada, and the states of Washington, Oregon and Idaho in the USA.
From the teaser image (above), we can see that the car also features wheel arch extensions, chunky off-road tyres, a blacked out grille and roof, and LED spotlights mounted above the bash plate, at the base of the A-pillars and on the roof rack.
Kia has also replaced the lower portion of the Sorento's front bumper with a new custom-made bash plate and nudge bar combination.
Reports elsewhere indicate that Kia will bring a range of customised vehicles to the 2015 SEMA show in Las Vegas, with this high-riding Sorento just one of the selection to be displayed.
