Release Date of the 2018 Kia Stinger

The 2018 Kia Stinger is a Gran Turismo (GT) vehicle, which means it is a race-worthy high-performance car, but it is also one built for comfort and long-distance trips.  As you’ll see below, this is an accurate description of the 2018 Stinger.

The 2018 Kia Stinger GT model is scheduled to be available on U.S. lots like ours in the Tampa FL area sometime between mid-to-late 2017, ideally with plenty of time left so you can make plans for an amazing Christmas present, whether as a gift to someone else, or taking the form of giving onlookers the gift of sporty performance as you blaze past them in the streets.
