Rides: The KIA GT4 STINGER is Coming...

Written by

An email just hit my inbox from KIA Motors America with a sneak-preview of their new KIA GT4 STINGER. Powered by a turbocharged 2.0-liter engine that provides 315 horsepower to the rear wheels, this new ride is set to debut at the Detroit Auto Show in a couple of weeks, and I hope to see it first-hand at the Chicago Auto Show next month. Take a look at the pitch, along with the full teaser image below...

KIA GT4 STINGER

Kia faithful will immediately notice the latest iteration of the signature grille resting mere inches from the ground.  The surround glows white and is flanked by vertical LED headlamps. Front-brake cooling vents funnel air around custom 20-inch wheels. A carbon fiber front splitter mounted below the bumper provides added downforce for the car and keeps the GT4 Stinger’s front tires firmly planted to the tarmac.

An earlier teaser hit the wires last month, but at the time was nameless...

7749 1 2

Stay tuned for more details as I have them.

But does it come in black?
