It's the end of the line for the Kia Stinger, and this is the version that will close the book. The aptly named Tribute Edition is a limited-production model with just 440 slated for North America, and now we know how much it costs. The manufacturer's suggested price starts at $53,390, and with the mandatory $1,175 added in, out-the-door pricing is $54,565. It's a $1,500 premium over the Stinger GT2.
That will get you a 2024 Kia Stinger Tribute Edition with rear-wheel drive. Stepping up to all-wheel drive adds $2,200 to the price, elevating the most expensive Stinger to $56,765. Of course, all Tribute Edition models are based on the GT2 which features the potent twin-turbocharged 3.3-liter V6 making 368 horsepower. An eight-speed automatic handles shifting duties.

The Tribute Edition debuted at the end of 2022, confirming the end of the line for Kia's sports sedan. It garnered considerable attention when it launched for the 2017 model year, combining impressive straight-line performance with balanced handling that captured the attention of driving enthusiasts around the world. Sales were never that robust, leading Kia to pull the plug after just one generation. The Tribute Edition is an appearance package that adds black wheels and various bits of black trim on the outside, along with an exclusive color called Steel Matte Gray metallic. Brown leather seats with special trim are found inside.
1,000 Tribute Editions will be made for global markets. It will be replaced in Kia's lineup by the all-electric EV6 GT.
