FWD is fine with 180/195, but 290/310 will be a smoke show. Not having AWD in the GT is worse than not having wireless CarPlay / AndroidAuto on the EX w/10.5" head unit. KIA can be quirky sometimes.

I do find it annoying they didn't develop an AWD for the 2.0L model, especially with the Sonata N-Line on the way with the same engine. They could have put AWD in both. I'd go buy a K5 GT as soon as it was released if it had AWD. Same with the Camry, they put AWD into the 4cyclinder models, but not the v6 models. I thought they would do it with the 2021 models, but it looks like they still aren't doing it. Would love an AWD Camry TRD model.

I’m sure the additional horsepower and torque of the GT requires a beefier driveline.
Cost to sales doesn’t make sense. K5 GT will be low volume sales, niche model.
All wheel drive performance is available on the Stinger, even the entry model.
And the price becomes almost the same as a base Stinger (now with 300hp for 2021) compared to a premium package K5 GT.
Torque vectoring will help, but it’s gonna be a rascally rabbit.
