The 2022 Kia Stinger GT2 RWD V6 is a modern GT sports sedan that drives as good as it looks. Under the hood there’s a 368-horsepower, a 3.3L Twin Turbo V6 engine, and the latest advanced driver-assistance technologies. An elegant, premium feature-filled cabin, and a stunning design that pays its respects to the GT classics of the past, but still offers features of a 21st century sports car.
Stinger’s GT-Line trim features an all-new 2.5L turbocharged Gasoline Direct Injection 4-cylinder engine that unleashes 300 horsepower1 and 311 lb.-ft. of torque, paired with a uniquely optimized 8-speed Automatic Transmission. As a result, drivers can easily go from 0–60 time in a time of 5.3 seconds, along with an outstanding overall power and seamless shifting, for an incredible driving experience.
The rear-wheel driver or all-wheel drive (AWD) are both tuned to give you maximum driving thrills. There’s 55% advanced High Tensile Steel to help improve rigidity in a variety of circumstances — which means you’ll enjoy better driving dynamics and a quiet ride. There are five drive mode selections to match your driving mood. Adjust steering boost, shift points, and throttle mapping to give you a choice of five unique drive modes: Smart, ECO, Comfort, Sport, or Custom.
The Launch Control System maximizes off-the-line response for quick acceleration. The Electronic Controlled Suspension is designed to give you the ride you want, from Comfort to Sport, by adapting the suspension of the car to the driving condition. The mechanical limited-slip differential helps to evenly distribute power through the rear wheels, resulting in more responsive and agile handling.
There’s even more magic hidden under the floor storage compartments. These include a tray with partitions for storing smaller, loose objects, along with a spare tire. The 60/40 split-folding rear seats can accommodate a range of storage options and increase cargo space for added versatility. There’s more than abundant legroom that comes courtesy of Stinger’s generous wheelbase, which gives Stinger a very spacious interior
The Smart Welcome turns on the perimeter and interior lights and unfolds the power side mirrors to greet you. Inside, there’s Nappa leather-trimmed that’s deeply contoured for added luxury and comfort and feature an all-new chain-volume design inspired by luxury metal watch bands. The heated and ventilated seats include standard heated front seats. The 16-way power-adjustable driver’s seat includes width-adjusting power side bolsters, seat extension, and 4-way lumbar support for optimal comfort. A 10.25” touch screen with navigation system, with features like high-resolution color graphics and split-screen mode, comes standard on all Stinger trims.
