Two engines are available on your Kia, depending on the trim. From the LX MT to the GT-Line finds the 2.0L MPI engine at home under-the-hood, paired to an Intelligent Variable Transmission and putting out 147 horsepower and 132 lb-ft of torque. The top-level GT Limited speeds ahead with a 1.6L Gamma Turbo GDI engine, matched to a 7-speed Dual-Clutch automatic transmission, and getting up to 201 horsepower and 195 lb-ft of torque.
All providing their own levels of efficient power and smooth driving, three transmission types are found across the Forte trims. A 6-speed manual on the LX MT, the IVT on the LX, EX, EX+, EX Premium and GT-Line, and the 7-speed Dual-Clutch automatic on the GT Limited.
The GT Limited trim is the Forte at its maximum, and most capable, taking all of those smart features and advanced technology you love, and ratcheting it up with incredible power, but still complete with efficient fuel economy.
