After two years and $330 million, Kia is ready to launch its 11-seater MPV, Grand Carnival/Sedona. The not-so-mini-van gets a 3.8L V6 compared to the current 2.5L, resulting in a 30% power boost. Even though it 2-3-3-3 seating arrangement can swallow up the entire little league soccer team, the Grand Carnival is only 1.3 inches longer than a Voyager. And despite being nearly 8 inches longer than the current Sedona, the newcomer will be significantly lighter but stronger than the existing model. It's also expected to be priced lower than the Voyager. So, let's see, more power, lighter body, and cheaper? Looks like Kia's investment won't go to waste.
