Cayenne metallic pictures??

Recommended Posts

So why did gm offer it then not build any? New 6.2 or 8 speed not up to the task?? Hmm

As for going hd. They can't get them either and I don't really want or need a diesel. And the 6L gas isn't in my cards after having my current 6.2 with max tow

They're not likely to explain the delay externally. (lots of things happen during launch/ramp up - could be programming, differentials for the higher torque, etc)

 

Max tow ratio would be easier on the engine and trans.

(GM powertrain rates the 8L90 for up to 738 ft-lb, so there is LOTS of cushion there.)

 

What did you mean about the HD's?

Dealer had 2-3 on lot in dec/jan. Had 30-40 on order and was getting like 1 a week if they were lucky. Most were white or black and black int. if I'm writing the cheque it will be what I want- kinda fussy even tho it's just a truck

Ya I guess

Wish they would have built it. Guaranteed there wouldn't be another one like it. Just how I want it.

Oh well

It wasn't built because the order was 6.2 AND Max Tow.

It was my understanding if the combo kovs ordered was an option in Dec, it should have been honored.

Am I wrong?

The issue has turned out to be that the factory stopped using cayenne before it started building 6.2 NHT.

 

If the truck was ordered with 6.2, cayenne, non-NHT he would likely have it. If it was a 5.3 NHT cayenne, he would likely have it.

 

They are just now week (Mar23) building the first 6.2 NHT's. The stopped painting cayenne in the last week of Jan 2015.

 

The 2015 6.2/8spd's that have been delivered so far are not Max tow. Some (dropped max tow from the order so that the truck would be built sooner than the tentative Jan 2015 dates that were being given (and it now seems did not happen til last week of march).

I finally got around to Plastidipping my wheels. I had the cans for a while and finally had a little extra time while cutting the grass to do the job. I did 4 coats. I think it came out pretty good. Washed the wheels prior, taped off the valve, applied index cards around the wheel and sprayed away.

First real wash in a while and added a level kit, add a leaf and shocks. Did a bunch of other maintenance. Removed the plastidip. The color still pops! Love it! fdca1e95d13577d539ee6737e2a731bf.jpg3924fb401220869a71dd32c05fdf8aaa.jpg
