    V6 nga yata to. I wonder if the 2.7 V6 Grand Vitara can also do this.

    Nope. Motor only has 185 horses.

    If this is the 3.5 V6, it's possible for it to do around that time (7 seconds, more or less) to 60 mph.

    But again, 100 km/h (62 mph) is not equivalent to 60 mph. Those extra two mph take some time to cover. If the car does 60 mph in 6.8 seconds, it's likely the vehicle does 100 km/h in about 7.2.

    Ang pagbalik ng comeback...

    If the (2011) Sorento is geared like my 3.3L Sonata, 0-100kph can be done while still in 2nd gear. 6.8 seconds seems reasonable if the weight isn't too much. The 2014 Sorento has the same basic 3.3L V6 as my car, albeit bumped up to 290hp vs 235 on mine. YT videos show the Sorento hitting 0-100kph while still in 2nd gear.

    This time is for my Sonata. Looking at a YT video of someone doing a sprint of 0-100 kph (0-62 mph) with a car similar to mine, I took an online stopwatch and did my best to time it.

    I got anywhere from 6.4 sec to 6.6 sec which is slightly higher than the 0-60 mph sprints both Car and Driver (6.6 sec) and Motor Trend (6.8 sec) got. They're close enough to be in the same ballpark though.

    Must be fun to be an automotive journalist, testing out cars on a track.

    Ah, jeepney. The first real vehicle I ever drove. When I was 12 years old and had just arrived at the PH, my uncle (RIP) taught me how to drive his jeepney. I took it out on the street and passed my mom who was walking. She was so mad......

    It was also my uncle who gave me my first beer. He was so cool. He He.
