Introducing the 2020 Kia Forte GT

Other models in the Kia lineup have a GT variant and they represent a higher-performance driving experience. What’s at the heart of this ride is a 1.6L turbocharged 4-cylinder engine that delivers 201 hp & 195 lb/ft of torque and is paired with either 7-speed Dual-Clutch Automatic Transmission (DCT) or 6-speed manual transmission.

The 2020 Kia Forte GT models at our dealership serving the greater Kingston NY area come standard with the following upgrades and exclusive features:

  • Sport-tuned multi-link rear suspension & dual exhaust
  • 18” alloy wheels
  • Smart key with push-button start
  • LED headlights with auto-leveling and High Beam Assist (HBA)
  • Sport seats with SOFINO & cloth seat trim and red contrast stitching
  • Flat bottom steering wheel with red contrast stitching

Models with the DCT also have paddle shifters mounted on the steering wheel if you want to get a sportier ride & offer available Smart Cruise Control, while Parking Distance Warning-Reverse and an 8-speaker 320-watt Harman Kardon Premium Audio system with Clari-Fi™ & a subwoofer are offered on the manual-transmission model.
