Tried to find a 2022 Telluride in the Orlando area, was told multiple times, 1) they won’t order one for you; 2) the markup ranges $6,000 to $12,000 over MSRP depending on trim level; 3) you can put a deposit down on a “Wait List”, no guarantee when and if one will become available, but in the meantime Kia has your money, and 4) you won’t find a dealership that doesn’t markup at this time. RUN don’t walk away fast - learned the hard way that Orlando dealerships are fueling a buying frenzy! Contacted a dealership in Minnesota, the #1 one in the state and was told a) they will order and ship a new 2022 Telluride to you, b) they don’t believe or charge a markup, what you see on the window sticker is the price and finally c) they sometimes have stock on hand! SO hopped a direct flight to Minneapolis for $250, test drove a 2022 SX at list, bought the car immediately and caught a flight back the same day. Car will be shipped for $750 to my door completely registered, tagged and plated for Florida (yup they handle FL motor vehicle in MN) and had the best experience ever at a dealership. You might say I paid a $1,000 markup (cost of flight and shipping), nope, I didn’t pay the Florida documentation fee of $1,000 because I purchased the vehicle in Minnesota! To me, it was a win / win.

Hello. What was the name of the MN dealership? Thanks in advance.

i25 KIA in Colorado will order a Telluride at MSRP. I just ordred one, they told me to expect it in 4 to 5 months. They will pick you up at the airport when you fly in to get your car or ship it to you. They are getting a lot of business from the states that are marking up their prices. Jerry seiner KIA in Utah also would do MSRP but they gave me a wait time of 10 to 12 months

Here in Texas dealers in Austin, Houston, and San Antonio are all $10K + over MSRP while in the DFW area you can find a couple of dealers selling at MSRP. The Fort Worth dealer allowed me to order a car while the Plano dealer would not sell if you lived more than 100 miles away

You were rewarded for doing your research. Las Vegas is the same way, all 3 Kia dealers in Vegas are price gouging. I ordered a 2022 SX Telluride from i25 Kia in Longmount CO at MSRP. I had to wait 4 months, (should arrive at the dealer in 2 weeks) but absolutely no games. When the car arrives we are going to fly to Denver, the dealer will arrange a ride for us from the airport. The will ship it back for us if we want but we are planning on making a road trip out of it. Not all Kia dealers are the same. It's worth your time to shop around
