With a choice between two powerful engines, the 2018 Kia Stinger is ready to take you from 0 to 60 in under six seconds. The first engine option is a 2.0L Turbo Charged I4. This engine features twin-scroll technology as well as continuously variable valve timing. This turbo-charged beast pushes out an eye-popping 255 horsepower at 6,200 rpm, and 260 lb-ft of exhilarating torque to provide you with a driving experience unlike any other. To maximize the power and optimize performance, the 2.0L engine is paired with a next-generation 8-speed automatic transmission.
Anyone looking for a little extra will surely be impressed by the available 3.3L Twin Turbo V6. The 3.3L Twin Turbo V6 is also paired with a next-generation 8-speed automatic transmission that provides seamless shifting and maximizes acceleration. This monster living under your hood is capable of cranking out an astounding 365 horsepower at 6,000 rpm, and provides you with an unmatched 376 lb-ft of torque. To help you save money on fuel, this engine features Stop and Go technology that automatically stops and restarts the engine while you're stopped and waiting for the light to turn green.
The 2018 Stinger is more than just a pretty face and powerful engine. Thanks to many technological innovations, the Stinger is able to provide you with all the smart tech that you could ever want in your modern-day car. Take the Rear Assist feature for example. By using sensors located along the sides of the car, the 2018 Stinger is capable of keeping an eye out for vehicles approaching your blind spots. If there is another vehicle in a place that you might not be able to see, this system will light up an indicator on the appropriate side-view mirror.
Another helpful technology on the 2018 Stinger is the Smart Cruise Control. Much like the Rear Assist, this feature uses a sensor to monitor the area around your car. However, this sensor is located on the front, and helps to keep you at a safe distance behind other vehicles while you're cruising down the highway. When the car in front of you speeds up or slows down, your Stinger will automatically adjust its speed in order to keep you at that safe distance. When traffic clears up, you'll go back to cruising like you were before.
