All-new Kia 2018 Stinger Named to Wards 10 Best Engines List

January 4th, 2018 by
Kia’s all-new performance sedan, the 2018 Kia Stinger, is creating a lot of buzz in Tulsa and across the country. The 2018 Stinger is the first-ever Kia Grand Touring vehicle. It offers inspired performance, spectacular design perks and cutting-edge driver-assistive technologies to make every drive feel like an adventure.

The Stinger has already, in its short existence, accumulated several prestigious awards and accolades. The latest award added to the Stinger’s mantle includes being named to WardsAuto’s “10 Best Engines” list. [1]

WardsAuto’s list of “10 Best Engines” focuses on engines that are new to the market or have been significantly improved over the previous year. WardsAuto editors conduct evaluations based on several criteria, including noise characteristics, relative competitiveness, observed fuel economy, technology, torque, and horsepower. This is the 24th year for the competition. All vehicles named to the list must have a base price under $63,000.  The Stinger GT equipped with the 3.3-liter turbocharged V6 has a base price of $38,350.

Being named to WardsAuto’s list of “10 Best Engines” recognizes the Stinger for its Power Delivery, Responsiveness and Refinement. This latest honor from WardsAuto reconfirms the Kia Stinger’s gran turismo credentials, which are the result of the superb work of our global engineering and performance development teams. The world-class 3.3-liter twin-turbo V6 is the perfect motivator for the Stinger platform and ensures this car drives as good as it looks.

WardsAuto is not the only critic in the automotive industry to take note of the all-new 2018 Kia Stinger. Car and Driver had this to say about the Kia Stinger, ““By the numbers, the Stinger deserves its gran turismo designation, and it stands poised to open that market to many more drivers. The attainability of a car that can hold its own among established luxury sports sedans while also offering practicality as a daily driver is surely a reason for excitement.” [2]
