The Kia Soul Red Rock special edition draws its inspiration from the American Southwest rock formations that dominate the landscape. The package debuted at the 2011 New York auto show and has now made its way into a production model.

The Red Rock will come in a model specific color known as Canyon, kind of a dark red and brown, clearly inspired by the rock canyons of the southwest. Also exclusive to the Red Rock special edition are black, high gloss front fascia and mirror housings as well as black leather trimmed brown cloth seats. Automatic climate control and heated front seats come standard with the special edition package.

This is the seventh special edition package that Kia has unveiled for the vehicle. The Red Rock Soul will sell for $20,600, a little expensive it seems for just some styling bits and unique color, but if you truly love the American Southwest, maybe you will be enticed into buying one of these specialized Souls. If not, the base model starts at $13,900.
