Have you been waiting to driving something exciting? Enjoy the space and conveniences of the 2018 Kia Sportage. This compact crossover is ready to take roads by storm with its stunning looks and thrilling dynamics. Come see it up close today at our showroom, at Rock River Block. Better yet, schedule a test drive and see this spunky vehicle in action!

To begin your adventures on the road, the Kia Sportage offers you two potent powertrain choices. The standard 2.4L Gasoline Direct Injection 4-cylinder engine spouts 181 horsepower and 175 lb.-ft. of torque. However, should you require an extra boost of energy, the available 2.0L Turbo Gasoline Direct Injection 4-cylinder engine pushes forth with a tremendous display of 240 horsepower and 260 lb.-ft. of torque. Furthermore, you can get a fuel-sipping performance of up to 23/30/26 MPG city/hwy/combined1.

You’ll also have your choice between the standard FWD and the available AWD for the 2018 Sportage. The latter is infused with the technology of the Dynamax™ AWD system2, which uses electronic sensors to monitor road conditions and distribute power to the appropriate wheels to improve traction and handling—ideal for when you’re driving on challenging roads or in bad weather conditions. No matter the drivetrain you end up with, you’ll still be able to enjoy either more spirited or more economical drives thanks to the Drive Mode selectable electronic steering and powertrain control, with which you can choose between three different modalities: Normal, Eco, or Sport.

A suite of available driver-assistance technologies lies at your disposal in the 2018 Kia Sportage to improve your everyday commutes on Charles Street. Autonomous Emergency Braking3  monitors the presence of vehicles and pedestrians ahead of you as you drive, and will automatically apply the brakes in the event of an imminent collision. Rear Cross Traffic Alert3 will make backing out of those parking spaces at CherryVale Mall less of a hassle, as it will warn you whenever vehicles are approaching behind you. Speaking of parking, the Front & Rear Park Assist3 utilizes a sonar system in the bumpers to alert you when you’re getting to close to an object—the perfect solution for those pesky parallel parking maneuvers. Discover even more amazing available Kia Drive Wise3 technologies that you can equip to your advantage!

In the Sportage you’ll find yourself surrounded by a treat of sophisticated luxury. A functional, yet stylish, interior awaits to envelop you in its premium features and upscale materials. A driver-oriented design ensures a comfortable and ergonomic display of controls that places everything within your reach. An available dual-zone automatic temperature control system lets you and your front passenger choose independent climate settings. Enjoy standard Bluetooth®4 wireless technology with hands-free connectivity, as well as available Apple CarPlay™5 and Android Auto™5, to interact freely with your mobile phone in a safe manner.

A myriad of features still lie in store for you to discover, once you take the wheel of the 2018 Kia Sportage for sale in Rockford, IL. Visit us today at Rock River Block and take home the keys of this fabulous compact crossover. Our friendly staff will readily assist you as soon as you walk in through our doors.

Bernie made this the easiest and most personable car buying experience I've had in many years of auto purchases. He asked what I was looking for in a vehicle and what my budget was and we went from there, showing me options in makes and models then finding the one that was right. He was polite, courteous and offered none of the usual BS I've come to expect from dealerships. Mike in finance sealed the deal in no time again, making sure I was comfortable with all aspects of the deal, Truly a pleasure dealing with them both! Nice to walk out of a dealer knowing I was treated fairly and with respect.

He goes out of his way to make sure we are satisfied with our purchase. Mike Schoenberg did a fantastic job of explaining our financing on the Mustang. He was able to get us a low interest rate.

It's hard to purchase a new vehicle. You wonder if this is the right thing to do and if you an afford it. The entire ordeal is stressful. However, all these doubts and frustrations were removed by the our current purchase from Bernie Krowczyk. His humor reduces the stress and his knowledge of the Ford product is unmatched. Gregg Decman was our finance man. He was excellent also. He conducted our deal with respect and courtesy. He explained our process step by step. Even though this is not our first purchase he took the time as we went through every detail and answered every question. Thank you. John and Mary Lynde

Normally we dread going into a dealership to buy a car. Not anymore. We will always come back to Mitch. On a scale of 1-10 to rate him, we give him a 20! You will never find a better sales person than Mitch. He is bar far the best in Rockford!

This was my second time purchasing a vehicle through Mitch at Anderson Rock River Block and it was so easy and painless. We went into the dealership (with our 2 little ones) and he helped us order our vehicle. He let us know all of what to expect. We were out of the dealership within an hour. As soon as the vehicle arrived, I received a text from Mitch letting me know it had arrived. He had all the paperwork ready as soon as we arrived to pick it up. We had to fill out some other information and we were out the door again within an hour! Mitch has kept in touch making sure that everything is going well and has asked multiple times if we have any questions on our new vehicle. We will continue to purchase our vehicles with Mitch at Anderson Rock River Block.

We have been shopping around for a new Ford F150. We specifically came to the Rock River Block to see Mitch. He was able to get EXACTLY what we didn't know we were looking. We came looking for the bare minimum of trucks. He showed us a stunning show model, more than we thought we were in the market for. Mitch worked his magic and got us into the truck of my husband's dreams. We will be looking to trade in another car in the next year or so and guess who we will be visiting: Yep Mitch!

Professional, honest, no games, clear detailed itemized pricing of the car and all fees associated with the purchase. Mitch Edler is a wonderful salesperson. Todd Berg is a wonderful manager. They made the process quick and easy. Mitch gave a detailed tutorial on the car. He answered all our questions and he made it clear that he would be available to us, in the future, if we had any other issues. In a few simple words... SIMPLY AMAZING. I would highly recommend both Mitch , Todd, and the dealership. F.Y.I. I contacted MANY dealerships in my car buying quest. Out of 9 dealerships I found a total of 2 who were willing to be honest and upfront on the costs. Rock River gave me the best service and price. If you're wondering.... I'm not a personal friend or family member of either person. I'm just a customer looking for the best price and service. Go with Mitch Edler, in sales, you wont be disappointed.

Darrell had great customer service would have given a 5 but since my last visit in 2018 they had my phone number wrong which I had gave them to correct last time and he asked me for it today and when I called them to check if my car was ready they stated they had left me a message???? When I arrived to pick up my car the cashier guy 1st of all had no customer service or personality. I also told him my phone number was incorrect again gave him my number so I hope for my 3rd visit its corrected. Anytime I take me car for service I have always received a courtesy car wash and nothing that was my experience at Ford.

There is a BIG difference between dealership services offered in Chicago vs. a non-city dealership. I have dual heating/AC, and one side of the car is stuck on heat, the other on AC. However, the car is still hot. The first time this happened, I told the dealership where I bought the car about my Narcolepsy and intolerance for heat which will make me sleepy behind the wheel and can they PLEASE squeeze me in? The best they offered me was an appointment 7+ days away. Fortunately, it fixed itself prior to the appointment date. Fast forward a year or so later, I'm in Rockford, it happens again, told them the same thing and that I can't drive back to the city in a hot car, what did they do? Squeeze me in and they are just as busy!! Go figure. Not to mention, offered me a car (repeatedly) while I wait for repairs, which isn't offered at my dealership. Never again will I purchase a car in the city. It is consistently my experience that you always get the hood version of customer service.

We have been working with Brian Haselhorst and Don Murray for the repairs to our 2017 Ford Explorer. Parts have been on backorder for several weeks now and the dealership has provided us with a great loaner throughout this process. Their communication has been fantastic. Unfortunately Ford Motor Company has not been helpful throughout this process and this dealership is at the mercy of an uncaring company with a poor zone manager for FMC.
