The Kia Stinger has proven its place in the Kia lineup over the last four years since its 2017 debut. Now for the 2022 model year, the Stinger has received some substantial upgrades that transform the already impressive sports sedan into something even greater.
The evolution of the Stinger coincides with the rebranding of the Kia lineup and new design era for the brand. The 2022 Kia Stinger is introducing a new look to the world which is accented by a new Kia logo on the front of its hood. The latest era of Stinger is here in New Port Richey and our team at Friendly Kia has put together all of the highlights of this redesigned Kia below. Let’s see what the 2022 Kia Stinger has to offer the drivers of Tampa Bay, Clearwater, and New Port Richey.
The Kia Stinger has had a widely praised design since the beginning, with ideal sports sedan proportions and attractive premium design elements. Now for 2022, the Stinger has been revamped for an even more performance-oriented design feel. Some of the design updates the 2022 Stinger is bringing include a new dynamic Kia logo, a new DRL signature, optional “Stinger-Signature” LED DRLs and headlights, a new taillights design, new 18- and 19-inch wheel designs, and an updated exhaust tip design.
Inside the 2022 Stinger drivers will enjoy the look and feel of black gloss and chrome detailing on the instrument panel, modern stitching pattern throughout the cabin, and multi-color ambient interior lighting.
Two engine options power the 2022 Stinger lineup, bringing more standard power than previous iterations of the sports sedan. A base 2.5-liter turbocharged 4-cylinder engine generates 300 horsepower and 311 pound-feet of torque on the streets of Tampa Bay. This standard engine launches the Stinger from 0 to 60 mph in a quick 5.2 seconds.
Shoppers looking for higher performance on the road can opt for the available 3.3-liter turbocharged V6 engine mated to an 8-speed automatic transmission with paddle shifters. This GT twin-turbo machine makes 368 horsepower and 376 pound-feet of torque while taking drivers from 0 to 60 mph in 4.7 seconds.
