Anyone else ordered a 6.2l


Recommended Posts

My order for a 6.2l Silverado was put in by my dealer today. I was told that the engine is on constraint. Anyone else have one ordered or have any information on this constraint? My salesman thought it could be 4 weeks before my truck begins being production due to the engine.

I ordered one as soon as my dealer let me. I went in the day GM said they were available but my dealer pretty much told me they couldn't and the 6.2's weren't available yet. About 3 days later after talking to GM customer service they called and said yes. She's on her way home now.

That's awesome. When did you order it?

I ordered one on 10/22/13 GM accepted the order on 11/06/13 and it has sat at the 1100 status since then. My salesman originally figured 6-8 weeks. From what I have read around the net guys whose orders have been picked within the last week have target production weeks mid December. I figure even if GM picks mine up next week I will be lucky to get a TPW this year given we will be right into the holidays. From what others have said about shipping times taking a month plus I am thinking at the earliest I would have it would be mid February which would be about double the time the dealer figured on the high end. Kind of disappointing to say the least.

Even Apple doesn't have these kind of constraints when they release a new iPhone.

I beg to differ. I got mine (iPhone 5s) the day they came out. My wife missed the initial offering, and had to wait forever. But for the real topic, I ordered my Silverado LTZ 6.2/Max tow on 11/12/13. I am hoping for a mid/late January for delivery. We shall see....

I was being sarcastic, but these trucks came out in July and still have constraints? Maybe not GMs fault, but annoying never the less

Remember reading GM hired some guys who had been in the industry for years to specifically coordinate with suppliers to prevent this sort of thing.

Obviously they were not the most successful. Particularly having supply issues on axles of all things at the Ft. Wayne plant.

I ordered a Sierra SLT with a 6.2L engine and the max trailer package on 11/5/13. I just got word today from the dealership that my order now has a target production week of 12/23/13 with an anticipated deliver in mid January.

Mine (Silverado LTZ) was accepted 4 weeks ago (11/12/13), has the 6.2l / Max Tow, and has a TPW of 12/23/13.
