I didn't see any mention of the ventilated seats. Is that the same thing as the Air Cell Lumbar Support offered on the Stinger GT2 trim? Also, it seems that we can only get the smart power trunk and heads-up display on the GT2 trim, which are 2 features I am interested in.

When I spoke with my salesman he confirmed that ventilated as well as front and rear heated seats will be available options.

This is true. Air cooled/ventilated seats in front, and heated seats in rear on the GT2. These air cooled seats work very well. You don't have to have air flowing or pushing under the seat to feel the effect of the cooled seats. Kia Stinger GT2 on the showroom, you can put in accessory mode, turn them on and feel them working.

Anyone know if the nav screen will be the same size on both 2.0 and 3.3 trims?

Mike from what I understand the base 2.0 and Base GT will have the smaller nav screen. The Premium and GT1 and GT2 will have the larger NAV screen. I believe there is also a change in the instrument cluster screen based upon the trim levels. The owners manual thread may be able to shed some light on it as well, http://www.kiastinger.org/forum/threads/282-2018-Kia-Stinger-Owner-s-Manual .

I am glad to hear that the ventilated seats would be an option on all trims. I also hope that the Premium trim will have the same short shifter that are on the GT trims. I don't like the tall T-shaped shifter on the Base trim. Anyone know if red seats would be an option on all trims or is that reserved for the GT2 trim?

After going through the options list, its going to be GT2 for me. I do wish Kia would hurry up and provide pricing on these options or let me build it on their website.

So here is a good break down of the options, I just hope all those lines are options that can be added. Crazy thing is even on the GT you still get the smaller 7" display.

In another post, someone mentioned that ventilated seats would be an option on all trims/models. I hope the same would apply to the heads-up display and smart power trunk as well.

That's what the salesman told me on the ventilated seats.
