Apparently the production version of the Kia Soul won't be the only debut on the Kia stand next week in Los Angeles.

Kia has slapped a name on the production body-on-frame SUV born from the 2005 Mesa concept. Dubbed "Borrego," the truck will be offered with V6 or V8 power and have a grille that looks uncannily similar to the one on the Subaru Tribeca.
