Kia Stinger Earns J.D. Power Engineering Award for Highest-Rated All-New Vehicle

April 15th, 2019 by

Since our team, here at Ferguson Kia, first introduced the Kia Stinger to Oklahoma, the red-hot sports car has captured the hearts and minds of our Tulsa-area drivers. With its impressive performance (0-60 mph in as low as 4.7 seconds) and its striking good-looks; it’s not hard to imagine why. The Kia Stinger didn’t just make an unforgettable first-impression, here, locally. It also caught the attention of J.D. Power.

The 2018 Kia Stinger has been awarded the first-ever J.D. Power Engineering Award for Highest-Rated All-New Vehicle.

The J.D. Power Engineering Award for Highest-Rated All-New Vehicle combines the results of two well-known J.D. Power studies, the Initial Quality Study (IQS) which measures new-vehicle quality by the number of problems experienced per 100 vehicles (PP100) as reported by consumers during the first 90 days of ownership; and the J.D. Power Automotive Performance, Execution and Layout (APEAL) award, which measures new-vehicle owners’ overall satisfaction with their vehicles within the first 90 days of ownership. Categories evaluated include exterior, interior, storage, audio, seats, heating and ventilation, driving dynamics, powertrain, visibility, and fuel economy.

Kia Motors America’s chief operating officer & EVP, Michael Cole, had the following to say about the Stinger’s latest achievement, “Being the first auto manufacturer to receive this prestigious award from J.D. Power, an organization known for excellence in research, is a true testament to Kia’s ‘Give It Everything’ philosophy.”

A recent Ferguson Kia customer, and proud owner of a new Stinger, had the following to say about their recent purchase, “I was blown away by the outstanding professionalism of both Shannon and Taylor. KIA continues to hit home runs with both Stinger and now the new SUV Telluride. Thanks Ferguson for making this purchase a sheer pleasure with no surprises,” – James.
