wait time when ordering

Hello.

For those that have ordered a Levante in the past couple of months what has your experience been with the time frame to receive or anticipated time to receive?

Thx.

This depends on your configuration. I wouldn't give up my sport seats so my wait time was nine months. Trucks that went with the luxury seats (which have much more customizable options ironically,) have much shorter delivery times. Your dealer may already have build slots they can slap your name and configuration on, which speeds up the order/delivery process a bit. I believe my dealer said ideally without sport seats, I would have been at four/five months for delivery.

Thanks dabubbs.

We're looking at a Levante S with the Sport Pack. We were told 4-5 months, like you said above, but was wondering how real world that is. Seems it might be correct if that is what everyone is hearing.

Our wait time was 3 months....Ordered in Jan. and Already here, just have to pick up at dealer this weekend......Dealer already had some slots with no Name attached, so they build mine like I wanted......some dealers have slots reserved and as long as you get your order and options before they start the build, they can do all your options like you want.

I was at a dealer yesterday and asked -- I was told there are lots of trucks out there and that wait time could be really short. Four months was the guesstimate. I also noticed there were like 15 Levantes on the lot, many ready to sell. Picture below of the Levants lined up and ready to roll...

15 on the lot. Nice. Our challenge here is finding an S model in Bianco Alpi.

I ordered mine End of Sept 2016 and took delivery end of Jan 2017. Dealer also put me at top of list and put my order in right away. So ended up being about 4 months.

What exactly are the sport seats? I don't remember this as an option for me for some reason...??

I got the rosso interior with luxury package.

Sport seats are part of the sport pack you can option out. If you get the luxury package you don't have the option for sport seats. They're mainly designed to provide better support in cornering and such (if you really want to drive the vehicle hard, etc.) They look vastly different, and have some limitations such as color choices/contrast stitching choices, but also the headrest is not adjustable.

Here's a picture of the sports seat so you can see the difference.

Gotcha.. those look pretty cool.
So when I ordered back in Sept 2016, the sports pack was not available. I see that as an option online now.

Good luck!
