2014 Ferrari F12 Berlinetta

Most cardiologists and physiologists maintain that a human’s maximum heart rate is calculated with a mathematical formula: subtract a person’s age from 220. But some leading doctors are now questioning the established academics, which trace their origins back to 1970, claiming that a simple formula isn’t accurate for people of all ages, in particular those who are older. Rather than endorse the time accepted calculation, this progressive group argues that maximum heart rate equals 208 minus 0.7 times age.

While medical science continues its debate, I recently discovered a more elementary approach that disregards age and physical condition, and it requires no math.

To reveal a human’s true maximum heart rate, I propose strapping test subjects into the driver’s seat of a Ferrari F12 Berlinetta and then firing up its ferocious V12.

For most new car shoppers, three-row crossovers are little more than a way for the family-minded to avoid succumbing to the minivan stigma. Admit it – the only things that differentiate most larger CUVs from minivans are their lack of sliding side doors and – on most of them – the option of all-wheel drive. Having blossomed into a popular segment with thicker profit margins, though, automakers have plenty of incentive to keep their offerings fresh, and that’s exactly why Kia is presenting its 2014 Sorento so soon.

At first glance, the crisply styled utility vehicle seen here appears to be nothing more than a mid-cycle refresh – and not a particularly extensive one, at that. But that’s not the case at all. Despite looking very similar to the second-generation vehicle that came on the scene for the 2010 model year, this is an all-new Sorento. Or, more precisely, it’s about 80-percent new. Kia says less than 20 percent of the parts have been carried over from the 2013 Sorento, and that’s a pretty typical amount for an ‘all-new’ vehicle generation.

Since we’ve yet to spend quality time with the “Made in the USA” Sorento for more than a short First Drive in Arizona last February, we snagged the keys to a 2014 model in the all-new SX Limited trim level for a lengthy backroad meander from Florida to South Carolina.
