Is it a pretty solid guarantee that larger dealers get prioritized for orders over smaller dealers? Curious what everyone's experience has been in that regard. I placed an order with a dealer in my smaller home town but live in a large city, curious if that will further delay the process.
I wouldn't say prioritized - I'd say larger dealers get more allocations to order more vehicles.
When a smaller dealer gets an allocation, doubt that it gets thrown in a separate category when the dealer actually uses the allocation. GM probably views it similarly to the large dealer that received 12 allocations during that same allocation cycle.
Downside is that smaller dealer may literally only get one allocation - or they may get an allocation for a LS Tahoe and they don't have anyone in line that wants an LS...or maybe they get zero allocations for a Tahoe/Yukon
I could see where delivery could be take longer once it's built as I'd expect shippers to want the least amount of stops as possible
