Kia has actually unveiled a hardcore Stinger GTS at the 2019 New York Internation Automobile Program Restricted to 800 systems and revealed in an unique “Federation” orange color, the carbon fibre-clad Stinger GTS receives a reworked sportier design and technology Kia is calling “Dynamic AWD.”
The brand new AWD system will work alongside a mechanical minimal slip rear differential, distributing the required amount of power from its 365 horsepower system to make the limited-edition vehicle drift. Closing the space between AWD traction and RWD behaviour, the Stinger GTS will see 3 modes which each change how much the vehicle wanders: Comfort sends 60%of the power to the rear, whereas Sport sends out 80%and the brand-new “Drift Mode” will send up to 100%of the power to the rear wheels.
The 3.3-litre V6 twin turbo engine will deliver 376 lb-ft of torque and is paired to an eight-speed automatic transmission. The gearbox features “Transmission Shift Pattern” technology to hold gears without upshifting when wandering, producing impressive powerslides when dabbling the rear-biased dynamics.
The Kia Stinger GTS will begin production from Spring 2019, with a price of $44,000 USD for the standard RWD version and the D-AWD edition coming in at $46,500 USD.
