Chicago 2013: Kia Cross GT Concept

Kia Cross GT Concept Previews Larger, More Premium Crossover

With the reveal of a third new vehicle at the Chicago Auto Show today, Kia is firmly planting its flag in the Midwestern city. The 2013 Cross GT concept is a look into the future at a possible rear-wheel drive luxury crossover.

As its name implies, this vehicle is based on the GT concept that debuted in 2011 at the Frankfurt Motor Show in Germany. According to Kia’s press release, it’s meant to blur the lines between a gran turismo and a luxury crossover.

As with many concept vehicles these days, the Cross GT features a hybrid drivetrain. At the heart of the system is a familiar 3.8-liter V6 and an eight-speed automatic transmission. Beyond that combination, Kia engineers sandwiched an electric motor between the engine and gearbox. All told this “parallel hybrid” powertrain delivers 400 horsepower with an earth-shattering 500 lb-ft of torque. Supposedly it can also deliver 20 miles of all-electric driving.
