Looking to buy a U.S. market Kia Stinger in Sunset Yellow? Here’s what you need to know.
[ads id=”0″ style=”float:left;padding:6px;”]If you’re interested in the Kia Stinger, no doubt you’ve been playing around with the configurator on the Kia Motors America website for the past few days.
Like me, you may have noticed a discrepancy between the overview page where it clearly shows Sunset Yellow as an available color and the configurator, where no matter what you do, you won’t be able to option the car in yellow.
However, the yellow Stinger is indeed coming to the U.S. market as a special edition. This first-year special edition is limited to just 400 units at select dealerships in the United States and will only come in one configuration: base GT trim with Sunset Yellow exterior, Black Leather interior, rear-wheel-drive with the Limited-Slip Differential.
It’s actually the only base GT trim that comes with the LSD, which is generally reserved for the rear drive version of the highest GT2 trim level.
That means that your yellow Stinger is going to come with no sunroof, no AWD, no nappa leather seats, no heads-up display, no upgraded audio system, and no shift-by-wire transmission controls. But what you will get is the rarest of all Stingers in a color that will make you stand out wherever you go.

Kia has also told us that each year they will be creating a new special edition Stinger in a different configuration, and they told us to expect that parts derived from the orange Kia Stinger Federation SEMA car will end up on production special edition Stingers.
If you want a yellow Stinger, you better act fast. I suggest you call up all your local Kia dealers to see if any of them know if a yellow car will be arriving at their dealership. These cars will disappear quickly. Of course, be prepared to hear that this car doesn’t exist from dealers who haven’t been allocated a Sunset Yellow car. But we can assure you it does exist!
