The Kia Stinger made a splash on the market when it was introduced for the 2018 model year. Kia’s compact executive car won the praise of critics when it was awarded both the JD Power Engineering Award for the Highest Rated All-New Vehicles and Business Insider’s Car of the Year Award. The car was lauded as “a true gran turismo” and its release set the stage for an edgier and redefined Kia Motors brand.
The 2022 Kia Stinger builds upon its newly acquired reputation as a luxury-inspired performance vehicle. You may not think of Kia as competing with the likes of Audi, BMW and Mercedes-Benz, but critics agree that the Stinger holds its own among the best as an entry-luxury sport sedan. In this article we will explore the two available engines on the 2021 Stinger.
Turbocharged 2.5L 4-Cylinder Engine
The base engine on the 2022 Kia Stinger is a 2.5L Turbocharged 4-cylinder engine. This engine, available on the Stinger GT-Line trim level, puts out 300 horsepower and 311 pound-feet of torque. The GT-Line trim comes in either a rear-wheel drive or all-wheel drive drivetrain and achieves an EPA-estimated 32mpg on the highway.
Twin Turbocharged 3.3L V6 Engine
Looking for more power? The Kia Stinger also comes with an available Twin Turbocharged 3.3L V6 Engine on the GT1, and GT2 trim levels. This engine puts out an impressive 368 horsepower and 376 lb-ft of torque on 3,342 cc of displacement. This engine is also offered on a rear-wheel drive and all-wheel drive drivetrain. The upgraded engine does sacrifice some EPA-estimated MPG for the added power – still getting up to EPA-estimated 25 MPG on the highway. In only its fifth model year, the Kia Stinger has made a name for itself as an entry-level luxury and performance car.
