Engine Options and Specs for the Stinger

The 2.0-liter four-cylinder GDI base engine of the Stinger pumps out 255 horsepower and 260 pound-feet of torque, which is a remarkably good start. That said, it's still the base engine. A level above it, one will find a 3.3-liter V6 GDI Lambda II powerhouse that pummels pavement everywhere it goes with 365 horsepower and 376 pound-feet of torque. Needless to say—regardless of which trim you choose—the 2018 Kia Stinger won't just meet your expectations, it will surpass them.
