Kia Updates The 2022 Stinger

Tuesday, March 23rd, 2021
2022 Kia Stinger GT Red Sunset

The Kia Stinger. The embodiment of performance and power.

Born on the Nürburgring, Stinger met every trial, every challenge, and every exhilarating turn. As a result, it captured a loyal following that asked Kia for even more.

Now, evolved into something more focused and even more exciting than its inception, the 2022 Kia Stinger elevates the game with evolved exterior design, more advanced safety features, cutting-edge technology, and unmatched performance. 


First, you will notice new, fully-LED exterior lighting, designed to improve vision all around, accents the front and back of the sleek body. The fastback body eliminates drag and allows the Stinger to slip through the air with ease. New, artistically-designed alloy wheels adorn all trim levels and speak of the speed capability of this vehicle. The Stinger has a more aggressive exhaust design that growls, begs to be opened up on the road, and makes your heart pump. The all new Kia badging adorns and perfectly accents the vehicle design.


An all-new 300-horsepower turbocharged 2.5-liter engine for the GT-Line models brings exciting new performance capabilities. Even with the additional muscle, there is no penalty of fuel economy over the previous 2.0-liter engine. 

GT models retain their 368-horsepower twin-turbocharged 3.3-liter V6 engine and remain the performance leaders of its class. The new electronic variable exhaust audibly makes its presence known. Both engines connect to an eight-speed automatic transmission and available torque-vectoring all-wheel-drive. 

As a sports machine, one must have the cabin that fits its mission. The 2022 Stinger raises the bar of driving experience for the driver and its passengers. A new 10.25-inch navigation display is standard across all trims, giving you a larger screen for all infotainment functions and putting everything easily at your fingertips. Black gloss and chrome trim, upgraded LED ambient mood lighting, and a new Nappa leather seat design enhances the new display. 


As for safety, Kia’s Advanced Driver Assistance Systems expanded its feature list to include Auto Emergency Braking, Blind Spot Collision Avoidance, and Lane Keeping Assist as standard on all trim levels. These advanced safety additions join a well-established collection of incomparable features that already gave the Kia Stinger an IIHS top safety rating.

A Special Edition 2022 Kia Stinger

To celebrate the enhanced, new 2022 Stinger, Kia will be offering a Scorpion Special Edition. Coming this spring, this special Stinger will include a rear spoiler, blacked out fender garnish, side mirror caps, and darkened exhaust tips, unique black wheels, and an interior carbon fiber pattern trim. The Scorpion Special Edition is only available in these exterior colors: Snow White, Aurora Black, and Ceramic Silver.  This special edition Stinger will definitely sting!

The 2022 Kia Stinger is coming soon to Kia of Mankato! Contact us to become one of the first owners here in Southern Minnesota. Don’t forget to experience our remaining inventory of new Stingers today!

What does GT mean for Kia vehicles?

Kia has built its reputation on vehicles that are efficient and affordable. Those elements are still very much on display with the inventory available at showrooms, like the one hosted by Kia of Mankato. However, the automaker is shifting its narrative a bit – especially with a couple of its sedans. If you pay as close attention to what the automaker has been producing, you may have noticed that there are a couple of models wearing a ‘GT’ badge. So, what does GT mean for Kia vehicles? Lots of automakers have slapped a GT label on their cars with little meaningful change to go with it.
