Kia Sportage Transmission Fluid Capacity


The good old city crossover Kia Sportage – the car seems to be wonderful, but for what only it was not scolded: some did not like the interior decoration, others were not satisfied with the uncomfortable front seats, someone complained about the shortlist of optional equipment, but someone thought, that the visibility is not good enough, and the space above the head of the rear passenger is not so hot …

Kia fans could only hope that the manufacturer will take up the mind and take into account all the comments, and still will not forget about the suspension, to which there were also claims, which are by no means unfounded and finally, what the fans of the Korean car industry have been waiting for has finally happened: Kia Motors heard them and presented the updated Sportage, of the 4th generation – prettier and more thoughtful in general.

An old platform, an old car and an old motor – in 2018, this is either a verdict or a sign of powerful charisma, depending on how the market responds to it. In the case of Durango, the target market meets the demand for 60-70 thousand cars annually and this means that before we are not just a hero of the day before yesterday’s action movies, puffing up the remnants of muscles, but an age-old, but a self-confident man who keeps himself in shape and does not lag behind the modern rhythm.

A kind of four-wheeled Hulk Hogan, if you like. Here, however, as in life, it all depends on the frequency with which he looks into the “rocking chair”: from the moment of our last meeting, I did not immediately recognize him.

For the American market – in Russia, the Dodge brand is not officially represented – Durango is sold with one of 4 engines available for the model. This is the already mentioned 6.2-liter V8 engine used on the top version of the SRT Hellcat, as well as two more V-8 engines of 6.4 and 5.7 liters, which produce 475 and 360 horsepower, respectively.

Power of the “younger” 3.6-liter V6 Pentastar – 295 hp. All Dodge Durango models use an 8-speed automatic transmission. The most charged version of the Durango – when accelerating from scratch – reaches 60 mph (97 km/h) in just 3.5 seconds.

The words “multifunctional and practical” are best for describing the Dodge Journey crossover. With a very balanced starting price, the car cuts under rivals such as the Kia Sorento, Hyundai Santa Fe and Honda Pilot. The standard for the crossover is a 2.4-liter four-cylinder engine. Although most drivers choose a more powerful 3.6-liter V6 power unit. The trump card of the car was the infotainment system, which is considered one of the best in its class.

Drivers who need a seven-seater vehicle with a moderate price tag will enjoy the crossover. The family Dodge Journey offers a lot of thoughtful space, so there are no issues with luggage or personal belongings.

Meanwhile, the modern car market has much more spacious options than Journey. The basic 2.4-liter engine, which seems like a bad idea for a large crossover, is also questionable.

The 2015 lineup has five variants, the AVP configuration has been abandoned. Models SE, SXT and Crossroad are offered at a lower price than before. The brand new Crossroad Plus crossover comes standard with leather upholstery and a Uconnect infotainment system with an 8.4-inch screen.
