Kia Announces 2022 Stinger Scorpion Special Edition

New wheels, interior trim for sting-ier Stinger

  • Stinger Scorpion adds black trim, new wheels

  • Just 250 per month for US only


Kia is giving buyers in the US a little bit more sting to go with their 2022 Stinger. The 2022 Kia Stinger Scorpion special edition offers a choice of drivelines and special interior and exterior trim to give the sports sedan an updated look.

“Stinger was a wake-up call to a segment long populated by European sport sedans when it debuted in 2017 (. It redefined what enthusiast drivers thought about Kia and proved we could compete against the best vehicles in a hotly contested space,” said Sean Yoon, president & CEO, Kia North America and Kia America. “Since then, Stinger has built a loyal following of those looking for something unique and the Scorpion is set to continue that approach.”

Stinger Scorpion starts with a blacked-out fender garnish in place of the dark chrome finish of the standard car. The side mirror caps and the exhaust tips get the same darkened treatment. The Scorpion gets unique 19-inch wheels in a 10-spoke design, and the option is available in Snow White Pearl, Aurora Black, and Ceramic Silver paint colours.

Inside, the Scorpion has a carbon-fibre trim pattern unique to the model and the seats are available covered in Nappa leather in red or black.

Kia is offering the Stinger Scorpion on the GT2 trim of the model, the most upscale trim including the 3.3L twin-turbo V6 engine and eight-speed automatic. It will be available on both rear and all-wheel drive models, adding $1,295 to the price. Unlike previous editions including the GTS and Neon Orange, there are no mechanical changes for the Scorpion. Just 250 of the Scorpion models will be offered each month, built just for the US market and expected (by Kia) to sell out.
