Power and Specs

Under the hood of the Forte is a 2.0L engine. The LX and S trims have 147 horsepower and 132 lb-ft of torque and the EX trim has 164 horsepower and 160 lb-ft of torque. The base comes as a six-speed manual, though there is an option to upgrade to a six-speed automatic, which is what the other trims have.

Either specs have enough power for commuting around Dover and Newark and driving on the highway, but not so much that inexperienced drivers could get themselves into trouble.

The Forte is a sedan, though there is a hatchback version called the Kia Forte5. It's not a model we generally stock at our dealership, but if you're interested let us know and we can track one down for you!


No matter which trim you choose, you'll get Bluetooth for safer handsfree calling and music streaming, a USB port to keep all your devices fully juiced, a manual height adjustable driver's seat, heated mirrors, and satellite radio. For newbie drivers this number of amenities is perfect and won't encourage distracted driving.

For drivers with more experience who also desire more technology, the base trim can get the Popular Package. It adds a 7-inch touchscreen that has Apple CarPlay™ and Android Auto™ capabilities, a rearview camera, premium cloth seats, and cruise control. At our Wilmington location, the base model is our most popular pick and rather affordable.

As you move up the trim level, standard/available highlights include LED lights, sunroof, a few advanced safety features, navigation, adaptive high beams, and larger wheels. If you want a true premium feel when driving around Elkton you can even get leather on the seats, steering wheel, and shift knob!
