Well if you don’t guess then your question is kind of redundant, as it’s plant holiday time and won’t be back up into new year , now that’s also dependant if there’s any pandemic lock downs , but I’d say 12 weeks .

Thanks. I should have said, no non educated guessing... :) Make sense because it used to be about 8 weeks in 2017 for the regular Pac. I have a Touring L that I ike a lot. How do you like your Pachy? I would be my 1st hybrid.

What do you mean the plant is down until the new year? I've not heard anything like that. Obviously they'll take a few days off, but a whole month off? I don't think so.

Builds generally take 4-8 weeks, but it's anyone's guess with the holidays, refresh launch, and COVID crap. I'd lean more towards 8 weeks.

From the “limited” information I got from Chrysler (obviously the dealer doesn’t know anything...😡) Mine was built, but sitting in a Bay waiting to be shipped out. When that happens, who knows. But I know it took about 2-3 days to build, but the logistics part of this is what’s lagging.

Between forum members help and my dealer. Chatting with the FCA agent provided very little help.

Christmas holidays the plant is down and then will be back up again sometime in January, baring any lockdown orders in Ontario . So that’s why I would say about 12 weeks

If your van is built you’ll probably see it sometime in late January by time it ships to whatever area , then dealer , then you pick it up

That is exactly what the salesman said.

So the 2021s won't be coming till January? That's half way through the model year already.

Remember, they are making the gas, and hybrid Pacificas on the same assembly line. They will do gas pacs for xx months, and then run the hybrids for yy months. How long it takes to get either one, will depend on where in the cycle the order is placed.

Sure bro, whatever you say. BTW, the 2017 Pacificas were released in Spring of 2016. And, every new model year was released in Fall. So the 2021 will be the shortest MY. Sucks for resale.

I don't think that's how it works. The line is super flexible, they even made the Dodge Grand Caravan on the same line before they discontinued it.

MODEL YEAR. Come on, I'm a as big a fan boi as anyone, but everyone know the model year is different than a calendar year. Chrysler is way behind.
