So now I'm confused. My dealer's sales rep sent me an email with an order number last Tuesday along with the statement that "it hits the production line next week." That would be the week of May 5, vs June 3 for someone who ordered before me. (I signed my deal on April 17, but obviously I don't know when the order was actually submitted to GM.) But what does hit the line mean really? I have no insight into the cycle time through the production process and even less into the Shipping cycle time after it leaves the line. I wasn't going to bother anyone a GMC chat since I didn't know if I would understand the meaning of any status they might give me.
This may or may not help. Actual production time and shipping times can vary for scores of reasons. What may be "typical" one month may not be later. Back last winter, some had info that stated their truck was shipped, but really stuck in some rail shipping yard somewhere for weeks. Best to just hunker down and ride out the storm . .
