The Kia Mohave, marketed in North America as Kia Borrego (named for the Anza-Borrego Desert) is a sport-utility vehicle (SUV) manufactured by the South Korean-based Kia Motors. The vehicle debuted in 2008 in the Korean[1] and US markets.

The production model, designed by automotive designer Peter Schreyer, has been introduced at the 2008 North American International Auto Show. [2] The vehicle was originally shown as a concept car under the Kia Mesa name at the 2005 North American International Auto Show and went on sale in Korea as the Mohave prior to its release in the United States.

The Kia Borrego is named after the Anza-Borrego Desert State Park in California; Borrego means “bighorned sheep” which can be found in the state park[3].

The Borrego uses body-on-frame construction, with available adjustable air-suspension, hill-descent control and a high- and low-range gearbox. The Borrego has three standard rows of seats in the US. The Borrego will be fitted with either the 3.0 L VGT diesel V6 (in 2010), second-generation Lambda II 3.8 L V6 which cranks out 276 horsepower (206 kW) or the recently developed 4.6 L V8 Hyundai Tau engine. The Tau V8 will be tuned to give less power but more torque than in the Hyundai Genesis sedan, and creates 337 horsepower (251 kW). The V8 has a towing capacity of 7,500 lb (3,400 kg), and the V6 is able to tow 5,000 lb (2,300 kg). It has a navigation system available as an option.
