No matter what trim level you go for, you will be getting an exhilarating ride when you select your Kia Stinger. The base model comes with a 2.0-liter inline four-cylinder engine with 255 horsepower. If that’s only the base engine, that should tell you something about this car. That same engine is found under the hood of the Premium trim, but the GT, GT1, and GT2 models pack a bit more of a punch. Drivers who go with one of the GT models will get a standard 3.3-liter V6 engine powered by a whopping 365 horses. We promise that you won’t have more fun driving any other Kia model.
