Now that the 2020 Kia model year is underway and more information about the class is being released at a faster rate, our team of Lakeshore Kia product experts is getting a pretty good idea about what it’s like to drive the 2020 Kia Stinger GTS. Since the first day the original Stinger platform went on sale, it was clear to everyone that the automaker has produced something very special. Several automotive experts have praised the high-performance sport sedan for being a nearly perfect driving platform. That reputation isn’t going away any when the 2020 model is on the ground and ready for customers in Slidell. The 2020 Kia Stinger GTS is focused on improving several areas, including handling and overall ownership experience. Let’s take a closer look.
When the 2020 Kia Stinger GTS arrives at the Lakeshore Kia showroom, it will be available with either rear-wheel-drive or the automaker’s new D-AWD system. Three selectable driving modes are available, including Drift mode which will send up to 100 percent of power to the rear wheels without the automatic transmission upshifting. Obviously, this kind of driving should only be done in appropriate areas and drivers should make friends with a tire vendor.
Also, the 2020 Stinger GTS will have the same twin-turbocharged, 3.3-liter, V-6 engine under the hood (attached to an eight-speed automatic transmission) that will make 365 horsepower and 376 pound-feet of torque.
In addition to offering muscle car-like performance, the 2020 Stinger GTS also delivers all of the best aspects of any high-end sedan – while also maintaining a relatively mode price point. Early independent reviews of the 2020 Stinger GTS have praised the athletic sedan for being able to transport four adults and their luggage very comfortably. Buyers can choose models with Alcantara upholstery covering the steering wheel and center console for a little extra refinement. The so-called ‘Federation’ orange exterior paint color will let everyone know they aren’t looking at a standard Stinger model. Not that there is such a thing as a standard Stinger model.
