My Chevy Traverse is at 241K and my wife says i need to order a new one. local dealer says 6-8 months. Just curious if that is them trying to get me to take what they can find or if the build time is that long.

Thanks!

Welp, it’s not new news that vehicles are in short supply….
All you’ll receive is anecdotal responses though.
If you’re a order your car, like new from dealers and think “your dealer” is “your dealer” then you’re limiting yourself to the most complicated way to get some new or newer wheels.

I ordered a 2022 GMC 3500 on February 3rd. I asked the sales guy when it might get here. He literally laughed at me. I asked for a vague idea like 1 month, 4 months, etc. He just laughed again. "No idea." He said. Then he said "You're order did actually go in because you didn't want anything that isn't available right now. you're ahead of 5 other buyers who want options I can't currently order." One of those options was the 6.6L gas engine. Some others involved running boards or something.
They had actually ordered a new truck for me in early 2020 but it never got built. I never got a straight answer why but I think that was when the manufacturers got shut down and were forced to build ventilators instead of automobiles.

It depends on what you are ordering and the options you want. The more bells and whistles you order the longer it will take. Some options you can't even order. Today was the last day you could order a Ford Superduty and a few weeks ago they cut the options available. Last I heard it will be July 1 before you can place an order for a Superduty. I was told 2 months ago to plan on a year for a loaded F450.

it varies all over. A friend ordered a car in july, expected delivery in Nov, now they just got notice it is on the assy line. then it has to get across the ocean........
In the past ordering vehicles delivery has varied from a few months to 6 months or more and that was when there weren't lots of shortages.

I ordered an F150 King Ranch FX4 CC long bed tow package tow mirrors and most every other option on July 31st last year. Being end of July I assumed it as for a 2022 model. Dealer said 3-6 months. Got a call from dealer end of October saying Ford was ending their 2021 orders and I would need to reorder as a 2022 model. I asked if 3-6 month clock would restart. He said yes, but he didn’t think it would be that long. Picked up the truck on December 30th. So 5 months from initial order date despite the reorder.
May be longer now. But dealer has considerably more trucks on his lot now than then. So I guess more trucks are being delivered faster now than then.

Don't feel bad. I friend ordered a new luxury vehicle. Waited over 6 months just to get his frame on the assembly line waiting list. After delays due to parts, it finally was completed. More delays due to transport issues. Finally made it to the pier, was loaded and set sail. The ship was the Felicity Ace and is now sitting on the ocean floor.

You’ll be lucky to find one new on a lot somewhere!

I would wait till next year when supplies and demand equal out. You’ll be paying a premium for anything right now.

My son in law ordered a Jeep Gladiator on February 2 this year. Unbelievably, it was built in 3 weeks, waiting for transportation (from Ohio to Wisconsin). He picked it up last week, 4 weeks later. It took longer to deliver it than to build it.

I ordered an F350 a month ago and was told to expect 6-8 months. It’s crazy the waits, it seems to depend on dealer allotments, and options. There may be some voodoo involved also. Some guys are getting them in 3 months, others 10 months.
