Hey guys,

I’m curious what wait times are for Canadians? On Oct 24 we placed an order on a 2022 Pinnacle Hybrid.

Dealer was saying that Chrysler seems to be mostly caught up and expects 3 months +-

I may have an option to get a limited with appearance package instead sooner. But a limited with appearance packed is only $1100 cheaper here. So I figure I’d rather wait for the pinnacle.

But if there is a good chance I can get screwed I may opt for it.

Thoughts?

If the dealer says three months get then to put that in writing and if not knock off another thousand dollars off price every month you wait . The wait time for pinnacle ehybrid is about 6-8 months if your lucky .
Yeah right I wish. They hope I cancel my order because the car will be shipped to them regardless and then they will sell it above msrp.

Why are they still taking orders for 2022s then?

Don't be influenced by any external factors, especally Canada's dealer, because of that they don't know more than you know, they just want to clear thier lot and making money, you have to trust yourself and trust your decision, don't change your mind easily. I've been told that I would wait for 3-6 months almost a year ago, but look, I'm still here to answer your question: Canadian has no idea about time line, even Chrysler doesn't.

The lucky thing is that plant has been re-running production for almost 2 weeks, and there's no announcement for production cacelation for next week so far, please allow me lol, this will break the record for continuous production since middle of year.

Do the math , if they make 16000 -20000 phev s a year and time that by 48 weeks production and by 6 days a week and further that by 3 shifts . You get that they make about 20 vehicles a shift . Of those 20 phev about 18 go to USA 🇺🇸.

I ordered mine early August, I have my VIN and it is being build but the dealership can't estimate when they will get it, I ordered a limited by the way

Ordered on May 11th!!! I ordered my 2022 Hybrid Pinnacle on November 2nd, 2021 with a confirmation of my order received (BX) and nothing else. I spoke to a dealer yesterday, not my dealer, about ordering a 2023 but it is not available to order yet. I will just wait. My dealer has essentially told me to drive my 2017 Pacifica limited( bought new) with 82k.
Now for something different. As I stated, I purchased my limited new and after reading about the power fold in mirrows, I saw that 3rd. button on the adjustment switches and pushed it. My mirrors folded in!
After 6 years and 2 months, I discovered this! Maybe I am too old to keep driving?

I totally dont get it why they on-hold manufacturing Pinnacle for Canadians since in the states, people could get Pinnacle within 3-4 months. They force people buy other options like Limited+options...

Ordered in June, still waiting. Fingers crossed before Dec 31 for big tax break for this year.
Good news they didn't lose the second shift yet but they have idled both shifts her and there for parts shortages. Not even just semiconductors, one of the issues was gas tanks. If your vehicle is already in production you might get it by year end but technically they should only have 2023s on the line unless of course they extended the 22s?

Hey, just an update, I just received word that my Pacific Hybrid Pinnacle is in JS: Shipped to storage status
Ordered on November the 2nd 2021! No that's not an error. 2021 but that's okay, at least we got to drive our 2017 trade in for the last 15 months.

Just received confirmation that the 2022 Pacifica Hybrid Pinnacle that I ordered in April 2022 is in D status as a 2023. It is price protected and I have a VIN. There is no estimated date however. Dealer does not think that the interest rate is protected.

You'll be assigned estimated ship date once your van move into D1, but there's a recall involved 19-23 model, might delay on production and shipment, my estimated ship date is Jan 23rd, but still no update yet.
