The 2017 North American International Auto Show (NAIAS) brought many exciting automotive developments to light. One of the most exciting debuts was from Kia: introducing the all-new 2018 Kia Stinger.

This brand new high performance model is a project 5 years in the making, since Kia’s initial reveal of the concept. Kia engineers have been hard at work to ensure the new Stinger GT surpasses consumers wildest expectations. Read more below about the sports car that will have you on the edge of your seat.

Triple Threat: The 2018 GT Stinger


The Kia Stinger GT offers drivers two turbocharged engine options:

  • The Theta II producing an estimated 255 horsepower
  • The Lambda II producing an estimated 365 horsepower

This Stinger GT will be Kia’s first sedan available with rear or all-wheel drive. If you opt for the AWD model, you’ll also be able to take advantage of Kia’s new Dynamic Torque Vectoring Control, which applies power and braking force automatically based on road conditions.


Two impressive engines make a clear statement about the athleticism of this sedan. But the Stinger GT is more than just a powerhouse. Design elements like powerful haunches, a low-slung cabin, and steeply raked windshield give this car a stylish edge.

This attention-to-detail isn’t just about the lingering stares. Kia says each exterior design element is in place for a reason: to aid aerodynamic efficiency.


When you’re behind the wheel of the 2018 Stinger GT, you’ll never be alone. Focus on the road ahead, and let intelligent driving systems take care of the rest. Driver-assistive features include:

  • Driver Attention Alert
  • Forward Collision Assistance
  • Head-Up Display

This Kia sedan has plenty of entertainment-focused technology, too. Enjoy your drive with the help of 15 speakers, and the robust sounds produced through the Clari-Fi™8 sound system.
