Kia hasn't officially revealed when the K5's release date is but we should expect it to go sale some time this year.

It's going to be built alongside the Telluride at Kia's West Point, Georgia assembly plant.

Took delivery this past Monday. Sapphire Blue, GT-LINE. I keep feeling like I got away with forbidden fruit. Value is off the scale. Fun to drive, fun to look at - inside and outside. Sips fuel.

I’ll try to get some pics this week. I’m still in the initial detailing stage.
Applied silicone spray to all the weatherstripping last night.
Have some meguiar's final detailing spray coming today.
Almost done with applying protectant to the interior.

Installed a trunk cargo tray. Only a few accessories are available from Kia at this time.
I was able to determine that the 2020 Sonata cargo tray would fit.
Ordered one from smartliner and it fits perfectly.

Welcome to the forum @K5 FL and congrats on the new GT-Line! Which engine does your car have?
Thank you for the warm welcome!
The U.S. spec GT-Line utilizes the all-new 1.6L turbo Smartstream gas engine.
It has the worlds first example of variable valve duration.

Do you have a link by chance to this cargo tray? Yes, not much for the K5 available yet.

Sure.
Looks almost elegant:
