Do you think with gas going crazy, the Ford F-150 lightning coming out this year, and the overall interest that Chevy might release it earlier than expected and by how much if you think so?

Unfortunately, no. GM is pushing development as fast as they can, they aren't holding back to release. I think the timeline that was given is as good as you can hope for, but there is a very real chance it will slip further into the future.
Yeah I’m seeing maybe push backs but not push forwards unfortunately as well. I’m hoping for a on time release but wondered what others thought.

Granted, we have to take any information we get right now with a grain of salt. But, I called the Chevy concierge number this morning and talked to a representative there. I specifically asked this question: "I'm on the reservation list, and I want a WT trim. I'm not a fleet customer. Will I be able to actually get a truck in 2023?" She immediately answered, "Yes." She went on to say, "If you're on the reservation list, you'll get a truck in 2023."

I'm OK with waiting a year. I need time to get a 240v outlet wired up in my garage and do some planning anyway. What I'm not OK with is waiting 3 years. If it turns into that I'm going elsewhere. But so far I am still getting positive information. So we'll see...........

Man, I really hope so I’m super excited about this truck but like you need to get the outlet wired up. If it looks like three years or more then I might look at a cybertruck even though it looks weird to me as I know ford isn’t going to be putting out trucks outside their 200,000 order for two more years.

Yeah, knowing my luck I'll actually get to order a truck for '23 but the dealers will start adding $15k markup and I'll still have to pass. Sigh....

I specially called my dealership and asked about any mark ups or fees, they said there was only a $1000 deposit but if I order it then it will be msrp with shipping, tax, and tags obviously. I think a lot of dealerships with gm or afraid of getting reported and losing their ability to sell gm cars. Call your dealership and ask.

Just like with the Ford lightning, there is no reason to buy from a dealer that is trying to gouge you. Just confirm MSRP before placing the order, and if they try to ADM fee you, switch dealers. Ford is very happily accommodating customers who need to do this, and I have no doubt GM will be as well.

Whoa!!! Yeah, a grain or two of salt is needed for that. Sounds interesting, though... Still think it's highly unlikely.

I'm with you on that. I will not pay a single penny of markup. Funny thing is, I sent the Sales Manager at my chosen dealership an email asking about this last week and haven't heard anything back. Maybe I hit a sore spot? :unsure::ROFLMAO:

Might need to change the dealership that’s going to handle your order. I agree with you I’m not paying dealership fees.

Same. When I asked about markup, all he said was "we don't know what dealers are going to do yet." I won't pay markup. So we'll see.
