The 2023 Kia Stinger only has two trim levels to choose from, which is a nice change from vehicles with eight or ten options. Sometimes, keeping it simple is the way to go. That being said, you may still have a hard time choosing between the GT-Line and the GT2 trim levels. If so, read below to learn more about how these trim levels compare. Check our online inventory to see which models are currently available at Matt Castrucci Kia in Dayton, OH.
The 2023 Kia Stinger GT-Line model is the less expensive of your two options. It has a starting MSRP of $36,690. Each trim level has its own standard engine, and the variant for this model is a 2.5 L 4-cylinder turbocharged engine that produces up to 300 horsepower and up to 311 pound-feet of torque. An 8-speed automatic transmission helps you smoothly change gears, and paddle shifters make it easy to shift from drive to park to reverse without lifting your hand far from the steering wheel.
The standard features on the 2023 Kia Stinger GT-Line include leather seat trim, heated front seats, multi-reflector headlights, and a 10.25-inch touchscreen display. Since the other trim level is more expensive, it will offer all of these features or upgraded versions of these features.
Starting out at $51,890, the 2023 Kia Stinger GT2 is the higher trim level option. It has an even more powerful engine than its counterpart: a 3.3 L V6 twin-turbocharged engine that produces up to 368 horsepower and 376 pound-feet of torque. These numbers represent a noticeable increase in power that you’ll feel as enhanced responsiveness and punchy acceleration. It does keep the same 8-speed automatic transmission with paddle shifters seen on the GT-Line. To counterbalance the increased power, this model has been given high-performance Brembo ® brakes for increased stopping power.
Other standard features for the GT2 model include Nappa leather seat trim, heated and ventilated front seats, LED projector headlights, and a premium audio system. It keeps the 10.25-inch touchscreen display of the GT-Line model. Overall, you’ll feel that this model is more premium and powerful.
