I ordered a Jeep Grand Cherokee L thanksgiving week. Dealer said it would take 2-6 months.

It is supposed to be built next week. And transport time may take up to 7 weeks after it’s built.

I hope you’re not in a hurry.

My F150 was built in about 3 months. It has been sitting in storage for 2 months waiting for a computer chip. Best estimate is 1-2 more months.

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!


yup based on my experience the build time may be that long. I place an order on a F-150 crew cab with trailer tow & Heavy duty payload Pkg in early sept of 21. toward the end of last year order was converted over to a 22 model. Mid march truck finally showed up at dealer, did closing on truck last week. I also found out my truck sat at a 44 acreage distribution center in MA for almost 5 weeks before being shipped to my CT dealer, was only vehicle delivered.

At most dealers today when you see popular new vehicles still "in stock" what that means is that they are asking and holding out for some ridiculous price, which they know they will ultimately get from some sucker. They are probably calling it something like a "market surcharge". I can find a fair amount of GM3500's or Ford F250/350's in stock here in Ohio but only if your willing to go $5K on top of sticker.

Even that depends on the dealer. I recently had to service my truck and the dealer wanted to give me an "appraisal" I thought, what the heck, everything is up right now might as well check it out. First, they lowballed my trade in, $5-$10K under KBB. Then they told me ordering a truck, their standard is $5K over MSRP depending on the vehicle, some are more. It's all about profit. They aren't selling as many trucks, so need to make more profit on everything they sell.

We also talked about the supply issue. He was pretty confident that "ordering" a truck and waiting for it to be built and shipped to the dealer is the new norm. They can get a premium for every vehicle and clients are willing to wait. Anything they order and the deal falls through, having them on the lot, the premium goes up, people are willing to pay even more for instant delivery.

I have issues with all of this. Mostly, I want to check out the truck, drive it, inspect it for damage or whatever, then deal on the price. Starting at a premium over MSRP doesn't work for me. We all know the dealer is making a large profit at MSRP and that service keeps the doors open. So, adding a premium just to make a higher profit is a bad business model and doesn't deserve my business. Vehicles are already way over priced for what you get. Paying $85K-$90K for a diesel truck is outrageous. I feel bad for our Canadian friends. What's going to be the price of a truck in 5-10 years - are we all willing to pay $150K for the same truck your driving now? I don't know about the rest of you but I'm not making any more money, the company I work for doesn't give raises and in this uncertain economy isn't doing anything for their employees to offset inflation.

Definitely depends on the dealer. KBB generally values a vehicle considerable higher than NADA, or the so called "Black Book" value. NADA is what local dealers generally go by. KBB for my 2012 F350 loaded was about $45 higher than NADA.

When I ordered my F150 last July the dealer first said $10k premium. Then dropped to $5k. Ultimately I ordered for $2k under sticker.
