No Dealer Markup What did you pay for 2022 Kia Stinger GT2 AWD !!

I'm not looking to buy, just wondering why we don't see people talking about getting $8k off MSRP on AWD GT2s anymore.

...not worth investigating though.
It's due to the chip shortage. Dealers don't have a great supply of cars. So a car like the Stinger, many only have one or two on the lot. Less supply, means they can (and probably need to) charge more.

I went to a Kia dealer a few days ago and they literally had 1 new Kia on the lot, a Kia Soul. I asked if they sold Stingers b/c it's literally not even an option on the website. They said they do, but they get one every now and then and it sells pretty quickly.

Like other dealers I've visited, they claim they only sell MSRP plus a "modest" dealer add on. I'm sure if they had one on the lot and I showed real interest in buying that day, they would negotiate. But in the past, dealers would mark down car fee grand off MSRP off the bat and buyers would try to talk them down a little more, add in the manufacturer incentives and come away with nice savings. But less cars, mean more $$$.

I'm waiting until winter to see if some better deals come and wait until the Kia incentives go up a bit.

It would be helpful if writers in this (& other) forums would reference their region. As has been mentioned, incentives & prices vary widely region to region, and so does inventory! In contrast to the previous post, here in the Pacific NW (Seattle/Portland) there are plenty of Stingers on the lots, and they're not moving, even as new units show up. But don't look for a Telluride, most are sold before they even hit the lot.

Use the Kia inventory search tool e.g. Local Search Inventory - Results Page | Kia

Often times the information on the dealer sites is inaccurate.
  1. Trust the inventory search tool results.
  2. Trust vehicle specific photographs.
  3. Trust the window sticker.
For example, the dealer page at 2022 Kia Stinger GT2 AWD Hatchback For Sale In Matteson IL - K10735 has a stock photo of a green GT2. The page description reads -

Exterior: Panthera Metal
Interior: Black

The window sticker says "Red Interior Color Package".

Ignore the often misleading information on dealer sites and trust #1, #2 and #3 from above.

Happy searching.

Got $3000k off MSRP ( including incentives) on my Snow White Pearl GT2 Scorpion on 8/27/21. They originally had a 3k markup on it but showed them a quote from a dealer a little further away and they matched it.
Meant to post a reply to the thread, not reply to your post. Sorry about that.

I was able to get a GT2 Scorpion at 6K off MSRP in Baltimore. :D
Any chance you could share the dealer?

Curious to know... what were the "a few minor cosmetic issues"?
a super tiny bit of the black chrome trim on the roof near the trunk opening is scratched, and they drilled holes in the front bumper for their dumbass 5 screw license plate holder (this irks me to no end). Honestly, scratches dont bother me. The holes in the front bumper almost had me walk away from the entire deal. For any dealer reading this - I dont care if your state requires it. LEAVE IT TO THE BUYER TO DECIDE.

Got a white/red GT2 AWD last weekend for $52,000 (MSRP $55,765). Live near the Twin Cities. Dealer actual had it listed for $52,000, so I didn't have to haggle with any markup BS. The real negotiating work I had to do was on my trade. They wanted waaaay under Blue Book for my old car.

Ultimately, I think end of the month quotas brought the dealer around. They came up significantly on my trade enough to make the deal work (we ended on top end of Blue Book.) Dealers make money per car, but they also make money on volume/units. This dealer was pretty open about needing to hit monthly volume quotas, so I think that's why they were willing to negotiate vs. "take it or leave it".

I've been keeping my eye on Stingers in the Twin Cities area, and inventory for 2022s have hovered around only about 10 in a 50-100 mile radius. Most are listed at or under MSRP, with the exception being any Scorpion trims that come though. I would say they are listed on sites like Autotrader about 1 week before the car actually is delivered to the dealer, and stay on for about 2 weeks until sold (totally my estimates).
