We weren't expecting a "special edition" of the Kia Stinger so soon, but here comes the 2020 Stinger GTS, resplendent in orange paint and with an optional rear-biased all-wheel-drive system tuned to make it easier to get all slideways. Flip it to Drift mode and the Stinger will direct all power to the rear wheels and hold lower gears for smoky corner exits on the track-or parking lot exhibitions.

To achieve all this, D-AWD gets a mechanical limited-slip diff that isn't there in the regular all-wheel drive auto and a rework of the assist systems (Slip Control, Counter Steer Detection and stability control), as well as a tweak of the gearbox shift pattern. The three modes, in effect, will allow the drivers to dial the rear-biased dynamics of the performance sedan up and down.

The Kia Stinger GTS uses the car's 3.3-liter twin-turbo V6 engine, meaning you'll have 365 horsepower and 376 pound-feet of torque with which to initiate those slides. It is connected to an eight-speed automatic transmission and customers can choose either rear- or all-wheel drive. Police agencies tended to buy local, and.

The president had appealed to people on Wednesday to wait until the General Elections Commission announced the result. Election workers dressed in superhero costumes register voters at a polling station on Wednesday.

Of far more interest, though, is the new dynamic all-wheel drive (D-AWD); Kia says the technology is a result of Albert Biermann striving for a more capable Stinger, and that it "inspires more spirited driving". You'll still enjoy the rest of the GTS's exclusive features: the orange paint; carbon fiber for the grille surround, mirror caps, and side vents; an Alcantara-wrapped steering wheel and center console; a faux suede headliner; and unique badging, including a Stinger emblem in place of "Kia" on the trunklid. A 720-watt Harman/Kardon audio system will be standard equipment on this model along with a sunroof and a wireless charging pad.

A new iteration of the all-wheel drive system offered in left-hand drive markets, dubbed Dynamic AWD, aims to close that gap. We'll have to wait and see if dealers will stick to these "suggestions" given the 800-unit production run, when both versions will go on sale this spring.
