Four main shops compose the plant: Stamping, welding, paint, and assembly. The facility is also home to a transmission shop and a two-mile test track. With its half mile of height-adjustable conveyors, the plant has a capacity of 300,000 vehicles.
The 2011 Sorento, which we tested in November, boasts a 174-horse, 2.4-liter four-cylinder standard. Optional equipment includes a third-row seat and a 277-horse, 3.5-liter V-6. It starts at $20,790.
