Kia to discontinue production on popular Stinger vehicle

Like its predecessors, the Kia Stinger debuted in 2018. Only five years into production, the automaker revealed the Stinger's 2023 end.

All is not lost, though. The Kia Stinger's greatness is celebrated with a unique lineup through 2024. Kia is releasing GT-Line and GT2 premium variants.

GT-Line Apex and GT2 Grand Tourer Special Editions. Only 1000 Ascot Green Kia Stinger GTs will be made to elevate the climax.

GT Model
It's terrible that 2023 is Kia's last year of the Stinger, with all-wheel drive, 4.7 seconds to 0-60 mph, and 300-368 horsepower. Kia lets you choose how many heads you want to turn with a 2.5L four-cylinder or 3.5 six-cylinder engine. A comfy leather interior and 22 mpg city and 32 mpg highway are offered by the four-cylinder engine. The Kia Stinger GT-Line will make everyone want to drive.

Speaking of road trips, the Stinger outperformed its competition in cargo space and had enough of it. The Kia Stinger GT-Line competes in style, speed, and salary protection while not being a premium vehicle. The cheaper of the two 2023 GT series, it lets everyone drive svelte and be a “stinger” on the road.

GT2 Model
The Kia Stinger GT2's 3.3L dual turbo V6 engine produces 368 horsepower and reaches 0-60 mph in 4.6 seconds. Additionally, the suede interior with red stitching and piping is unique. The GT2, an update from the Stinger GT-Line, gives the competitive Stinger a desirable attitude. The GT2 gets 18 mpg in the city and 25 mpg on the highway, less than the GT-Line V4. This permits constant cycling and long trips. High-performance Brembo brakes and electronically regulated suspensions keep you safe on the road.

The Stinger GT2 has an exclusive 1000 Ascot Green Grand Tourer packages, although there are other colors and packages. Your GT will reflect your personality on the road with seven external paint and interior choices.

The two 2023 Kia Stinger GT models share features but perform differently. The Kia Stinger infotainment system has several advanced features. Remote control of the Stinger is straightforward and pleasant using your phone. The vehicle's connection allows remote start, voice assistance, auto location, and stolen vehicle recovery. Apple CarPlay and Android Auto are available on the Stinger's 8-inch or 10.3-inch screen with tactile buttons. Music and voice-activated controls sound clean and pleasant on the Harmon/Kardon nine-speaker audio system. Other enhancements include wireless smartphone charging stations and in-dash navigation.
