Kia’s rear-drive premium four door is looking pretty production ready in these spy photos.
The teasing has gone on with regard to five years, ever since the GT concept bowed in Frankfurt in 2011. The vehicle took pictures of near Kia’s southern California headquarters stays in keeping with the concept’s general proportions, though the clamshell (“suicide”) doorways are, not surprisingly, absent from the mix.
Designed to fight German competitors in the high end of the marketplace, the 2018 GT may source its system from the upcoming Genesis G70 four door.
Kia cites the GT concept’s powertrain as being a turbocharged as well as direct-injected 3.3-liter V6, making 395 hp and 393.5 (huh?) pounds-feet of torque. That output is likely to change by the time the production version emerges from its camouflage, possibly later this year.
