They need to get some over that can be driven by potential customers! My dealer called me yesterday saying they were going to be placing first-time orders today. I am not committing until I have driven one.

... just spoke to him in person, and they actually want to know what I would buy so they can order it, but are not asking me to commit. If I don't buy it, they won't have any issue selling it!

Unfortunately, they have the official pricing but no confirmation of color choices, details on the packages, etc.

By the way, Kia web site updated for the stinger - I got excited until I realized that information isn't available there either..

FYI, build your own is up and running for the Stinger now.

Looks like Kia is doing the Nissan Maxima approach - each trim level is what you get and that's it. (Which I honestly like better than the fustercluck of packages they have for the Optima) Each trim level can be equipped with a $2000 drive wise package consisting of all the safety tech, which I think is a cool move.
