+1Does anyone know when websites and print media will be able to release test reviews of the GT? And, when should the GTs begin to arrive at dealerships?
I bet the decisions about how to position the GT's features are being left to the marketing brain trust at Kia USA. If you want to get their attention, I suggest test driving a GT and telling the sales manager that you won't buy it because it doesn't come in AWD nor does it have the features available on the Canadian models made in the same factory. Enough of those lost sales stories get fed up the ladder from dealers and I suspect things will change.I hope, probably hopelessly, that the delay of the GT is due in part to KIA's rethinking the need for AWD or a limited slip differential. As zethyr points out, it would be an easy fix because of the Canadian AWD cars. I think the GT market, relative to other K5 trim lines, will be fairly small and those who want it would gladly pay the extra cost for AWD. Obviously, something is going on since the GT was supposed to be available in November.
