I got this from my dealer:

October 11, 2010

Dear Kia Retailer:

Kia Motors America is pleased to announce pricing for the 2011MY Forte. For the 2011MY, the
Forte receives a revised powertrain, revised interior styling along with new features and content
that delivers best-in-class fuel economy and enhances the outstanding value that you and your
customers expect from Kia.

An all-new six-speed automatic transmission delivers up to 38 MPG - a 2 MPG improvement
on all models. Ride and handling have been improved by the addition of new monotube
shock absorbers while NVH has been noticeably reduced due to a number of
countermeasures. All models now feature new interior styling and solar glass for a more
comfortable environment. For the EX model, we’ve added an outside temperature gauge, trip
computer and illuminated sun visors.

The LX model is easier to order and stock due to the convenience package (a $1500 option
for 2010MY) now being standard equipment while the value is enhanced by only increasing
the MSRP by $1,300. The EX model MSRP has been increased by $400 - well below the
market value of the improvements.

SX models will now feature paddle shifters on all A/T models, automatic headlamps on the
sedans and LED taillights on Koup models for an increase of $700. We have also added a
new technology package that includes voice-activated navigation, push-button start and
fully automatic air conditioning value priced at $1,800.

A 5-door body style is now offered on EX and SX trims. The price premium over a
comparable 4-door sedan is $500 which includes standard 16” alloys, a rear spoiler, a cargo
cover and a rear wiper/washer. Your customers will love the 5-door styling and cargo
flexibility. To minimize product complexity due to the addition of the 5-door and technology
packages, we have made A/T standard on EX/SX 4-door sedans and have dropped the EX
leather package.

With its new powertrain, the 2011MY Forte delivers more power and better MPG than
competitors while its new features and pricing further enhances its value advantage.
Please find attached the updated vehicle and option pricing for the 2011MY Kia Forte.

Sincerely,

KIA MOTORS AMERICA

Thomas J. Loveless
Vice President, Sales

That's how I read it too...but the manual could be ordered, maybe? Doesn't say the manual will not be available.

I wonder if the 6 spd A/T can be swapped in place of our 4 spd?
Physically...probably -- however, since it is all computer controlled you'd have to be a computer-smart person or get all the right parts to make it work. Not a job for the "shadetree" mechanic.
