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.
