Kia May Relaunch Full-size Borrego SUV As 2011 Model

The 2009 Kia Borrego was a victim of what many believed to be bad timing. With soaring gas prices leading consumers to small vehicles in late 2008, the launch of Kias full-size, body-on-frame SUV was simply too late for the market.

The resulting poor sales of the otherwise capable 2009 Borrego (just over 9000 were sold, opposed to a sales goal of 20,000) led to Kia withdrawing the model for 2010, but claiming the model would return to the lineup at an unspecified later date. That date may be soon.
A quick look at fueleconomy.gov shows that there seems to be a plan for a 2011 model. A Kia spokesperson could not comment on vehicle details, but said the model, if produced, is "still in the planning stages."
