Exploring the 2026 Kia Borrego / Mohave: Renderings Reveal a Bold New Direction

  • The renderings feature arrow-shaped headlights, a compact grille, and a dynamic bumper with a substantial central intake.
  • Sleek taillights connected by a horizontal light strip, a streamlined tailgate, and a redesigned bumper.
  • The current South Korean Mohave has a 3.0-liter diesel engine producing 253 horsepower and 413 pound-feet of torque. A U.S. version would likely need a gasoline engine.
  • Simple wheel design with standard tires, enhancing practicality without sacrificing style.

Kia has been actively expanding its lineup, but could a fresh Borrego / Mohave be on the cards for the U.S. market? While the automaker hasn’t made any official announcements, recent renderings have ignited curiosity among SUV enthusiasts.

These renderings, crafted by Digimods Design and showcased on YouTube, envision what a 2026 Kia Borrego / Mohave might look like if it were to make a comeback in the U.S. Drawing from Kia’s latest design elements, these digital depictions present a compelling vision of a modern, rugged mid-size SUV.

The front of the rendered Borrego / Mohave features distinctive arrow-shaped headlights, a compact grille, and a dynamic bumper with a substantial central intake. The rear is equally striking, with sleek taillights connected by a horizontal light strip, a streamlined tailgate, and a redesigned bumper that integrates the license plate. The sporty diffuser and black cladding along the lower body enhance its tough, off-road-ready look.

From the side, the renderings show a different profile compared to the existing Mohave sold in South Korea. Redesigned rear quarter windows and new side windows provide a fresh look, while the subtle roof rails and flat roofline behind the central pillars ensure plenty of headroom for passengers and ample cargo space. The wheels, depicted with a simple design, are wrapped in standard tires, completing the SUV’s practical yet stylish appearance.

Currently, the South Korean market’s Mohave is powered by a 3.0-liter diesel engine that delivers 253 horsepower and 413 pound-feet of torque, coupled with an eight-speed automatic transmission and four-wheel drive. For a potential U.S. version, however, a gasoline engine would likely be necessary to meet market preferences and regulatory requirements.

Despite the intriguing renderings, Kia has not indicated any plans to reintroduce the Borrego to the U.S. market, where it was discontinued more than a decade ago. Yet, the possibility of a modern, capable mid-size SUV from Kia stirs the imagination. Would American drivers welcome the return of the Borrego / Mohave?
