Good morning. I'm just trying to find out what is going on with the production in Ontario for Dodge Challenger. i know the plant closed twice in January and April and just reopened due to the chip stortage but i ordered my Widebody Scatpack Challenger November 10, 2020 and it was a 2021 model. Does it normally take this long to get a new car when you order it directly from the dealership. i've never ordered brand new before so i just wondering if this normal time frames etc. Like i said i do understand the chip shortage has caused some problems but I do see other people other their challengers after me and getting the vehicles a month or 2 later after ordering. I do know there are different allocation rules for dealers but just like to know more about the process. Thanks.

When I last spoke to the dealership 2 weeks ago they said my car was hot ticketed to get done if that means anything I'm now sure.

In the past I have waited up to 12 months when I have put in factory orders but that was 15-31 years ago. I guess the times have really changed? :unsure:

Well the dealership called me Thursday and said that the Ontario plant will be producing challengers in the month of July and they are suppose to be including mine in that month so lets see what happens.

The 2019 Scat Pack I ordered arrived exactly 8 weeks from the date I ordered it, but that was before the COVID-19 pandemic and the microchip shortage. Anything longer than four months would have had me climbing the walls.

This happened to me in the middle of my factory Corvette order when they dropped the color Precision Red. That held up my order and I had to pick another color. Still waited over a year for completion and delivery.
Then one of the other options "Dual Top Option" painted top including a translucent top got put on constraint and held up the order again. So I decided to leave the dual top option out to get the car completed. I did end up getting the translucent top some months later as I put the word out to Chev. parts I was looking for one. It turns out a customer didn't want his new translucent top so I was able to purchase that from Chev. parts at a very good discounted price. This was 15 years ago. Fast forward now to 2021 with all of these shortages with micro chips and problems of not having enough employees due to Covid -19 shutdown hit is even worse o_O (n)
