Last year Kia blew the world’s collective minds when they introduced the Kia Stinger. The Kia brand has never been known to make sports cars, so at first it was hard for them to believe that the Stinger would be anything worthwhile. We, obviously, believed in their vision, and boy did Kia deliver. The Stinger is an absolutely incredible vehicle delivering a ton of power and great content, a fantastic piece of evidence for what the Kia brand is capable of, and a great start to the future of the lineup.
Now, we present to you the 2019 Kia Stinger in Carrollton TX. Very little has had to change in the model, outside of a few new features and a new package being available. We cannot wait to see the evolution of the Stinger in the years to come, as the vehicle has already begun to evolve the rest of the lineup.
As we mentioned, there are quite a few new features found in the Stinger. Namely, a handful of convenience features have been added to increase the Stinger’s value even more, including wireless phone charging, rear outboard heated seats, Surround View Monitor and more availability for the front ventilated seats. The rear-wheel drive GT trim levels have also added a limited-slip differential to enhance performance. Additionally, Kia has made Blind Spot Collision Warning & Rear Cross Traffic Collision Warning standard across all trims and many more standard on the Premium, GT1 and GT2 trim levels.
We mentioned a new package, and it’s called the Sun and Sound package. Available on the Stinger 2.0, it adds a sunroof, an 8” touchscreen with navigation, a 720-watt Harman/Kardon sound system featuring ClariFi technology and 15 speakers, and LED headlamps. That covers all of the changes for the 2019 model year, but we just want to remind you that there are two engine options available, a 2.0L 4-cylinder engine and the 3.3L twin-turbocharged V6. The former generates 255 horsepower while the latter packs a 365-horsepower punch. Either option is impressive, and if you’re interested, be sure to give us a call!
