Kia K900
Last modified: 12/16/13
The K900, known in South Korea as the K9 and as the Quoris in other overseas markets, will be Kia’s counterpart to the Hyundai Equus full-sized luxury sedan. A V-6 and V-8 engine will be offered, with the V-8 producing 420 hp. The base model comes with a 3.8-liter V-6 that makes about 330 hp. The V-8 should be the 5.0-liter V-8 from Hyundai-Kia’s Tau engine family currently being used in the Equus. It will come with advanced safety technologies as well as reclining rear seats, nappa leather and a 12-inch high-definition digital instrument cluster. The eight-speed automatic transmission used in overseas models also is expected for the K900.

U.S. sales are scheduled to start in early 2014 with an expected starting price of about $50,000, while fully-loaded models powered by the car's V-8 will top out in the mid-$60,000 range. This will make the K900 Kia's most expensive vehicle.
