The Kia Stinger’s arrival 2 years ago rose the South Korean car manufacturer into the efficiency world with its powerful turbocharged engine and capable chassis partially established at the Nürburgring Nodrschleife.
The 2020 Kia Stinger GTS that came to the 2019 New York International Auto Show guarantees to seal the car manufacturer’s status as a rival to high-minded German efficiency stalwarts.
With the Stinger GTS, Kia includes heady driveline hardware to challenge very sedans from around the world. The 2020 Stinger GTS will use an all-wheel-drive system established by Albert Biermann, the previous expert of BMW M department, to mash or piece through corners– depending upon the chauffeur’s state of mind state of mind. Just 800 Stinger GTS models will be produced.
2020 Kia Stinger GTS Engine
The Stinger GTS will be powered specifically by Kia’s 3.3-liter twin-turbo V-6 that makes 365 horse power and 376 pound-feet of torque, and it will send out that power through the exact same 8-speed automated transmission used in other models. Rear-wheel drive will be basic and the new all-wheel-drive system will be optional. The all-wheel-drive system utilizes a mechanical limited-slip differential at its rear axle and includes drive choice modes that can direct as much as 100 percent of the Stinger GTS’ power to the rear wheels.
With all-wheel drive and Sport mode chosen, the Stinger GTS will send out 80 percent of its power to the rear wheels. Turn it to Drift mode and the Stinger will direct all power to the rear wheels and hold lower equipments for smoky corner exits on the track– or parking area exhibits. The drive control software application has actually been upgraded for generous slip angles and counter-steer detection for all things oversteer.
The concept of a drift-oriented all-wheel-drive system may sound odd considered that the basic rear-wheel-drive Stinger is completely efficient in wandering by itself. However we expect it makes it so that those who desire AWD traction will not lose out on any tail-out shenanigans if they so please.
2020 Kia Stinger GTS Exterior
From the outdoors, the Stinger GTS will feature a special orange paint color, carbon-fiber vents and mirror caps, and Stinger badges subbed in for Kia badges on the nose and tail. Inside, the GTS will be dealt with to a guiding wheel, headliner, and rush covered in artificial suede, plus a sunroof and a Harman Kardon audio system.

The rear-drive 2020 Stinger GTS will cost $44,000, prior to obligatory location charges, and the all-wheel-drive model will cost $46,500. The Stinger GTS ought to show up at some point this spring.
We value Kia’s rates technique for the GTS, which positions it someplace in between the GT and GT1 trims for the present car. Geared up with a sunroof and a Harman/Kardon audio system, the GTS has actually an approximated beginning rate of $44,995 for the RWD car and $47,495 for the D-AWD car.
