2017 Kia K900 Luxury Car Release Date, Price Range, Specs
We have absolutely no idea when the 2017 Kia K900 luxury car will be launched in the U.S. market.
The automaker has yet to officially announce the 2017 K900 release date, but here is some speculation and rumors about the upcoming Kia luxury sedan.
The word is out that the fast growing South Korean carmaker has been hard at work on a K900 redesign.
While details on that are scarce at this point, you should know that the timing for a full makevoer of the Kia K900 luxury sedan is just right.
The carmaker’s first ever RWD luxury sedan has been first launched in Korea in 2012.
It has took Kia one year to bring the model Stateside with the K900 being on sale in the US since June 2013.
Kia Motors America has released several advertising campaigns to push the US K900 sales, however, the vehicle struggled in sales, having sold less than 200 units per month on average.
Kia teamed up with basketball player LeBron James who was named the K900 luxury ambassador and has aired the K900 Matrix commercial during the Super Bowl.
Inspite of aggressive marketing, the K900 sales have yet to make any significant gains.
What could help, though, is the 2017 Kia K900 redesign.
Latest rumors suggest that the new Kia luxury sedan will be unveiled next year and may go on sale in the US as a 2018 model.
If that turns out to be true, then you can expect the new Kia K900 to makea significant leap forward in terms of desig, luxury, driveability and safety.
Since the future Kia flagship car will be built on the same platform as the Genesis G80 AWD luxury sedan, we could also see the K900 AWD with all-wheel drive system.
Kia K900 changes (rumors at this point)
- Full makeover rumored for 2017
- US launch: late 2017
- It may go on sale as the 2018 K900 in the States
- Sportier exterior design
- Enhanced luxury styling inside the cabin
- next generation K900 may be getting AWD
- Up-to-date safety features
Kia K900 plug-in hybrid
We would love to see the 2017 Kia K900 being launched as a plug-in hybrid car.
Kia has a lot of “eco friendly” cars in works at the moment, so we may see a hybrid drivetrain fitted under the hood of the fully redesigned model.
Note, there are no reports on such K900 hybrid model at this point but things change fast in the automotive industry, so don’t be surprised to hear such an announcement sometime in the near future.
Note: the information about the Kia K900 2917 (model year) is based on latest rumors, so don’t take things for granted. Kia has their own plans and when the time is right they will officially reveal them all.
