As the car-based crossover
vehicle continues to supplant the truck-based SUV
is bucking the trend with the 2009 Kia Borrego
. Combining truck-like body-on-frame construction and Kia's first-ever available V8 engine (in addition to a base V6), the midsize Borrego SUV promises more off-road capability and towing capacity than its typical crossover competitor. We'll know more when Kia officially introduces the vehicle at the 2008 Detroit Auto Show in January, but for now we can tell you the Borrego is slated to show up in Summer 2008.
