It at least looks good in red, which hides the refelctor.

I don't really mind the reflector strip, but that is a lot of money for a Kia

For the money and considering other cars like the Scat Pack Chargers are being given away for like 10k off not a chance in hell Id even remotely consider this.

Its going to be in a tough segment no doubt.

Scat Pack/Daytona Chargers are easy to come by under 40k.

No they are different platforms from what I understand. Also the K900 weighs a million pounds.

The Stinger will come in five trim levels: Stinger, Stinger Premium, GT, GT1 and GT2. With a $900 destination fee, the prices are as follows:
  • Stinger starts at $31,900
  • Stinger Premium starts at $37,100
  • GT starts at $38,350
  • GT1 starts at $43,250
  • GT2 starts at $49,200
  • All-wheel drive: $2,200
The base and Premium Stingers get a 2.0-liter turbocharged four-cylinder with 255 horsepower and 260 lb-ft of torque. The GTs get the 3.3-liter twin-turbo V6 with 365 hp and 376 lb-ft of torque.

They all come with eight-speed automatic transmissions and rear-wheel drive, but all-wheel drive is an option for them all as well.

Jesus! 111mph trap speed means they are probably understating the 365hp number, unless these things are super light.

This is going to be a pretty tough sell at $50K as there is a lot of established competitors at this price point. This will however make a nice used car in 2-3 years after depreciation hits hard.

Itís a Kia. Sounds great to spend 50 grand on a car only to spend the rest of your time explaining and defending it to people.


What do you drive...... oh I drive a Kia..... sweet.

I can get passed the Kia badge. They deserve the credit that's due here. 3.3L TTV6 with 365HP, there is room for more. I just fear the resale value of these, and I hope when you bring it in for service they dont give you a $10k Kia Rio for your loaner

When I was in college, the Kia dealer in Normal, IL was doing a special if you bought a Kia Sedona, you would get a free Kia Rio. No joke!

Kia has one of the worst resale values. GF purchased a new Sorento in 2013, fully loaded heating/cooling seats, leather, 4wd, etc etc. Very nice vehicle by all means, however it was like 40k new.

Now it's worth 12 with 70k miles

You forgot this one:

2013 Sorento SX 3.5L V6 AWD - 6 A/T $33,400.00
https://www.kiamedia.com/us/en/model...o/2013/pricing

Plus the options. She wasn't ripped off.
Though after depreciation I'd almost beg to differ
