8-10 weeks barring strikes, and railroad delays, etc..
I picked up my special order a couple of weeks ago.
There were options and color combinations that I wanted that were not
among those that the local dealers had on hand..
The manufacturers window sticker will say "This vehicle was built for
<<insert your name here>>> across the top.
BTW, after test driving the model I wanted, I dealt entirely with the
fleet manager per arrangements with my credit union. I decided on the
dealer based on distance to my workplace, convenient service hours and
reputation. Straight up pricing, no upsell, no hassles with dealer
No wasting time with the salesman's sucessive trips to his manager to
get the deal OK'ed, and no hassles with the financing, as I was
pre-approved by the CU. He worked up the order with the options I
wanted, and the pricing on his sheet matched the data I got online. We
worked out the differences, and I was very comfortable with the deal.
My concern with the delay is that the dealer may change the terms of
the agreement months later, the incentives, the trade-in value, etc.
With hundreds of vehicles built per work shift at the factory, I am
amazed that they have such a long back log on orders. That's literally
tens of thousands of vehicles on the waiting order.
Exactly what happened when I ordered. The incentives were higher at
the time of order, and they were applied as such at time of purchase.
Dodge did change one thing after I ordered, which was the introduction
of the SE Value Edition, but that was of no consequence to me as I was
ordering an higher option level.
