Thanks, so my dealer just misspoke? I’m guessing what they were really saying was they only have an allocation for a premier not a Z71?
I wouldn't say so much that they misspoke or tried to mislead you (unless there is more to the story)
Got off the phone with my dealer today, they said they have a Tahoe/Suburban allocation but they’re only able to put in for a Premier trim level, nothing else. Does this sounds right? Essentially saying every trim level is on constraint except premier? We’ve been waiting since May on a Z71 w/ max tow.
your first sentence is the way it's set up as...now if they said that all other trims were on constraint, then that's a different story - either they are ignorant of the process or lying to you in order for you to jump on the premier trim since it's available...
process works as StephenPT mentioned...dealer has to get an allocation for a Tahoe along with an allocation for a specific trim if any of the trim levels are on constraint...they also have to get an allocation for a constrained option if that option is something that is a "need" (think diesel, sunroof, RSE, max tow, luxury package have all been constrained items in the past)
the last one we ordered I talked to a dealer and when I inquired about ordering a Z71, salesman said they were on constraint and they weren't building any. I literally hung up the phone and called another dealer 20 miles away from that one and they not only placed my order for a Z71, they had an open allocation and it was immediately accepted - Tahoe delivered a month later...granted that's not typical, but if I'd have listened to the first guy we still wouldn't have a vehicle..
I wouldn't burn any bridges with dealers, but if a dealer is telling you it's going to be several months until your order is accepted and it's not some crazy build, I'd definitely reach out to other dealerships and see what their allocation timeline looks like
