According to Edmunds.com, the Kia GT is the production version of the Kia GT Concept, a 390-horsepower, rear-wheel-drive vehicle that was unveiled at the 2011 Frankfurt Auto Show. It’s slated to arrive at U.S. Kia dealerships by the end of 2016.
The GT is aimed at the American market, which is nice to hear we’re finally getting something sporty from an OEM. It will be sold in Europe with an available diesel engine but we can live without that.
The rear-wheel-drive Kia GT is expected to be powered by a turbocharged 3.3-liter V6 engine linked to an eight-speed automatic transmission. The V6 in the Cadenza would be a candidate if a supercharger or turbo were added
However, it makes more sense to put the powerful V8 from the K900 inside the GT to make it an instant powerhouse. Probably not going to happen but it would be a kick ass car if it did.
