Local dealer called me tonight with good news, they got an AT4X allocation and it’s mine! Pretty standard build, Thunderstorm Grey, gooseneck/5th wheel prep package and high idle switch. No constraints.

Inventory ordering manager did share that only 27 AT4X allocations were given nationwide this week.

Pretty stoked!

 

Congrats on the order! Did they give you an eta for delivery?

Thanks! They didn’t say anything about eta. My salesman quit/got fired last week so I’m dealing with the sales manager now. It was at status 2000 as of yesterday. I’ll check back in maybe a week if I don’t get any automated emails from GM.

@s4cruiser Where are you located? Texas by any chance?
 

Mine is still scheduled for production. Dealer said it was anticipated sometime in September, so just trying to be patient now. Not a strong suit of mine…
 

I’m way past the point of patience. Had a Yukon Denali build and waited 6 months with no movement, then decided to switch for the ‘24 2500 at4 (will sell my 2006 lbz) waiting 3 months with no movement and then switched to the AT4X just last week and bam - allocation!
 

Did they give you any idea how long it's going to take once you get a VIN to when it'll be ready for pickup from your dealer?
 

The long pole in the tent is often the last mile, I.e., getting the truck from the dock or rail yard to your dealership. There is a huge shortage of trucks and drivers for auto haulers. My AT4X sat in Portland for weeks before the dealer in Salem called me.

I didn’t even ask. Based on delivery times over the past two years for high demand low production GM vehicles (e.g. Yukon Denali), whatever they say is just a WaG.

What does give me pause is the September 14th deadline for a new union contract to be executed/agreed. The new union boss sounded dead set on either coming to an agreement or strike. A strike would I assume most definitely delay production/delivery?
 

I attempted to place an order last Thursday with my dealer for a Volcanic Red 2500 AT4X HD, but they didn't have any allocations left for me. Hopefully next week, but we'll see.

I ordered a MY24 Ford Super Duty Powerstroke King Ranch Tremor the week prior, but I'm not confident it will even get built so I loaded it up with the winch and everything I would possibly want. I then saw a YT video of the Volcanic Red AT4X HD debut and I was like, I probably like that a little better given my bias towards GM. I checked with my local GMC dealer and they were like $20k over MSRP to order one with them and I was like no thank you. That is when I placed my order for the Super Duty.

The thing with the Super Duty is though, I liked the looks better in MY22 than the facelift they received in MY23. Otherwise, I'm open and excited for the Super Duty. And Ford will give me 6% off with X-Plan pricing.

Then I came across another GMC dealer who will beat those discounts and sells about 500 trucks a month. As you might imagine they have a waiting list. I was hoping they would have submitted my order into GM Workbench and let it sit at 1100 until they received an allocation, I even would have been happy to give them a deposit then and there, but they said they prefer to wait until they have an allocation. I can't imagine their list is longer than a C8 Z06 list, so we'll see. If I do get an allocation and an order that goes past 2000, I'd be happy to let the Ford dealer sell the Super Duty to someone else.

@AirRyan thats nuts about asking 20k over msrp. My dealer is honoring (albeit reluctantly) supplier pricing on my AT4X order. Now waiting with crossed fingers that the impending UAW contract expiration doesn’t = strike and delays.

That is great! That is a nice discount. I am dumbfounded at how fast the Austin area has gone down hill. Large influx of California money who cashed out on their monopoly scheme housing market out there, sell even a modest home out there for 2x what it should be worth, come over here and buy twice the home for half the price. The land and property values have shot up exponentially which is good and bad, but there are still some dealers in Austin area who think there are enough morons willing to pay $15,000 and $20,000 over MSRP for a truck. DFW and HOU markets are much more competitive. It blows my mind that more people don't look elsewhere and instead are willing to overpay in the Austin area.

I wish GM had a better program than the supplier or employee discount that most don't qualify for. Ford's X-plan pricing is about 6% off and the discount comes from Ford, so some dealers won't honor it but many will. There are enough companies and clubs that anybody can join and get a pin number. I wouldn't worry about the strike, it lasted 6 weeks in 2019 but I couldn't imagine it lasts through the end of September this time. Too much at stake, and we all know the UAW will get something, it's just a matter of how much.
