The biggest difference between the new Stinger GTS and the models that have already been introduced is the drivetrain technology. Kia has described the D-AWD system as an, ‘…all-wheel-drive system peppered with rear-wheel drive DNA.’ Precision drivers know that which set of wheels drive a vehicle can greatly affect how it handles. The D-AWD system is designed to close the gap between rear- and all-wheel-drive handling characteristics.

A mechanical limited-slip rear differential has been added to the D-AWD model that will not only improve overall traction but will also distribute power more evenly when the system senses that a rear wheel is slipping.
