The 2022 Kia Stinger is a fun sedan that’s now available at Folsom Lake Kia. There have been some notable updates from the outgoing model. What are some of the pertinent performance features?

Let’s find out what’s new.

Performance Upgrades

The biggest performance boost is the addition of a 2.5-liter turbo-four engine, replacing the 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine from the outgoing model. The result is a 45 hp boost, totaling 300 hp.

Consumers also have the option to upgrade to an even more robust 3.3-liter twin-turbo V6 engine that delivers 368 hp. This engine variant includes the addition of a new variable exhaust system. This engine upgrade also enables acceleration from zero to 60 mph in 4.7 seconds, compared to 5.2 seconds with the standard 2.5-liter engine.

Both engine types are mated to an eight-speed automatic transmission that delivers smooth automatic shifts. When you switch to manual mode, shifting is equally smooth and feels like a seamless transition between gears.

Finally, with an all-wheel-drive powertrain and torque vectoring, the sedan is incredibly responsive and nimble for better launch and handling.

2022 Kia Stinger Scorpion Edition

Also available in limited edition is a special trim known as the Kia Stinger Scorpion, and it has all the hallmarks of a sports car. This includes glossy black exhaust tips, a rear spoiler, black mirrors, and 19-inch black wheels. The interior is fitted with your choice of black Nappa or red Nappa leather as well as a carbon fiber-pattern trim that graces the cockpit interior.
