A new name in game!
We have already seen some spy shots and interior teaser pictures from Kia, so we can imagine how Kia’s first full size SUV will look like.
But one thing we were missing and were not convinced about, is the name of it. Not anymore!
There has been a lot of guesswork done about the name in last few months. First, Kia released a truck concept named Mesa at NAIAS last year, so everybody thought this is the name for production vehicle.
Right after that we heard about Offenbach, which sounds very German by the way.
But at the end, Kiaworld blog found out, that the SUV name will probably be Mojave!
On the 1st of August, Kia trademarked two names for U.S. market; Mojave and Mohave. Names were chosen for a SUV vehicle.
So we can assume that at least in US market, Kia’s full size SUV is going to be named Mojave.
Mojave sounds familiar doesn’t it?! Well, everyone knows Mojave desert in USA that covers about 125,000 square kilometers of southern Nevada, western Arizona, southwestern Utah, and southeastern California. But do you know that Mojave is also a name for Kia’s pick-up truck concept car from 2004?
We will write a story about that later today, just to remember you how Kia’s cool concept car looked like!
