  • Looks Like Bad News For Those Waiting For 2021 C8's.....

    Must admit that this one surprised me.... Know there are industry wide supply chain issues and I hope that 2022 models will not be impacted however I am sure that they will. Sure more will come out about this before too long. I live very close to the largest Chevy Dealer in the US. Their lot looks like they have gone out of business there are so few vehicles.

    This has been well reported throughout the site. They have enough orders in the system to build 186 each weekday until early September to finish out the model year. No allocation in June, 2022 orders are expected to start next month.
    On Order: 2LT Coupe, Z51, Elkhart Lake Blue, GT2 seats, Edge Red Calipers, Mag Ride, Front Lift, High Wing spoiler, R8C museum delivery.

    2000 status 5/1, 3000 on 5/4

          I hated being stuck at 3000 status for weeks, until I suddenly was never so happy to be at a 3000 status now TPW of 7/5 is holding right now, and I don't know what to think about GM's statement that they will build all status 3000 status 2021's. I wonder if over the last two weeks they were able to firm up supply lines to where they are confident they can get all of the currently accepted orders for 2021 manufactured. otherwise, that was a very bold statement to make.
          2LT z51 coupe, Red Mist, mag ride, front lift, NCM delivery, etc.
          Ordered 7/11/20, 2000= 3/18/21, 3000=3/24/21, TPW=7/5/21, Built=7/8/21, NCM delivery=7/22/21

            They made that same statement in writing one year ago regarding their commitment to complete every status 3000, 2020 model. Many doubters then but they pulled it off with two weeks to spare. And this time they would have even more time should they need it for their is no end to the calendar year for over 3 months.

            Last year to accomplished they even chartered cargo plans to go pick up and fly to BGA parts to keep the 2020’s going down the line. They just last week also made that same statement to some of its key field personnel to get key parts to keep the 2021 moving forward.

            GM also has overtime available at BGA should they wish to use it. They will get every single 3000 status 2021 completed.

              Another key point that people on other sites don't seem to get is that canceling June allocations isn't going to delay anyone's order. If you were expecting your allocation in June, your order would have been built after the May allocations are finished. Now your allocation will come up (probably) in July, and your car will STILL be built right after the last May allocation. Only it will be built as a 2022,not as a 2021.

                I get the math about being after the May allocations, but.....
                $1k price protection?
                Nope.
                Decent increase in over all price?
                You bet!
                Now I'm hearing production of 22's won't start until 10-4-21. Just great.
                Enjoy at least some fall driving as expected?
                Again, nope.
                Very early 22 allocation looking like Thanksgiving to Christmas delivery.
                Just perfect for Mass. timing. 😖
                Pay through the nose and put it away for winter.
                2021 HTC on order with 2LT, front lift, msrc, npp, elb with two tone seats, and gray hash marks. September first delivery??
                Now 22. Thinking adding cf interior and deleting hash marks.
                Delivery? Who knows. ☹☹

                  Do not think that is the way GM works. Need to do some more research on how orders are placed from one year model to the next year model. GM cannot change the contract they have with the Dealers on what they build on different year model vehicles. Are you just guessing/assuming or does this exist in writing from GM?

                    No orders for MY 2022 have been accepted by GM. Every 2021 order that has been accepted will be built by, currently, the week of Sept. 7th. We expect GM will start accepting 2022 orders in July, probably on the 15th, and that the first 2022s will go down the production line the next workday after the 2021s are finished.

                    If all that holds true, regardless of the dates, even if GM gave allocation for and accepted orders for a 2022 MY starting in June the cars wouldn't roll down the line until the 2021s were finished in early September. So, it doesn't change anything at all about the wait itself, it only changes whether your eventual car will be a late 2021 or an early 2022 if you would have received allocation in June but are now July.

                      If you are buying and paying for a 2021 model that is what you will get. A Different order will have to be placed for a 2022 model.

                        If bought and paid for, yes. However, that doesn't happen until later in the process after your order has built etc.

                        If you place a deposit with, say Mike @ Criswell, you have secured a place in line to order a C8. If your place in line falls in 2021 great, if not you get bumped to 2022, etc.

                        Mike isn't going to throw all the people that placed deposits early this year off the list on favor of those who specifically placed deposits for 2022s, your place in line is secured when you place your deposit and will come your turn when the list gets to you regardless of what MY GM is building at the time.

                          I didn't say anything about price, did I? But on the bright side of the price calculation, your 2022 will have one year less depreciation when you eventually sell it than a 2021 built one day earlier.

                          If 2022 production doesn't start until 10-4, then June allocations wouldn't start until 10-4 either. 2022 production will literally start on the same or next day after the last 2021 gets built, so June allocations would be no sooner.

                            Yes, your order will have to be reentered, but dealers are going to submit 2022 orders in the same order of deposit they would have submitted them as 2021s. If you're on the waiting list for a '21, you're order will move ahead of all the other 2022 orders that would have been behind you. At least at reputable dealers.
