Kia showed off the shocking Cross GT concept at the 2013 Chicago Auto Show yesterday, previewing a potential luxury crossover from the Korean automaker.

Under the hood of the Cross GT is a hybrid powertrain that pairs a V6 engine with an electric motor for a total of 400 hp and 500 lbs-ft of torque. That’s paired with a 8-speed transmission to keep fuel economy in check. Inside the Cross GT has an earth-tone color theme, inspired by equestrian saddles.
