    2017 RRSs in dealer stock?

    Question - does anyone know when the 2017's will start hitting dealer inventory's? I see people are taking (and have taken) delivery of their ordered 2017's, but I'm kind of shocked I'm not seeing any dealer inventory 0f 2017's.

    Anyone know when they'll start hitting dealers? I see 16's in inventory still, but not 17's. Thanks!

    I am already seeing the 17's on lots around me (SoCal). The majority are still the 16's.
    An easy way to check inventory is through cargurus.com.

    re: 2017 RRSs in dealer stock?

    I was just in Scottsdale and seen a 17 at Penske Land Rover, it was Fuji white. Not sure if it was for a customer or display though. I seen it there on Friday.

    Just so you know.... there isn't really anything to "see". Yes obviously there is big changes to the Infotainment/Nav system but it all appears physically the same on the surface. If you looking to walk across a lot of 2017's to choose from, all lined up in a row like at a Ford dealership, it just isn't going to happen. They are too rare. Often times, these rigs are ordered from Factory only, the dealer has probably not invested in a demo just yet.

    Good luck with your search though!

    re: 2017 RRSs in dealer stock?

    I fully understand they are not lined up like a Ford Dealer would have. But usually they'll have 3-8 on the lot. I purchased my 2016 back in July from the showroom floor at Scottsdale, and they had 5 or 6 available. Mainly V6's when I was specifically looking for the V8, which they had 2. And I did see they did have 2 (V6) on their web site as of yesterday. I was just surprised not to see more 17's for sale, i.e. ebay, Auto Trader, etc.. I agree as well there's nothing to see as a difference between a 16 and 17, however the two features I am interested in, is the new Infotainment Center and Remote Start. Living in the valley, remote start really helps getting into a very hot car! Thanks!

    They literally JUST started arriving from the UK in the last few weeks.
    at this point, they're mostly fulfilling initial customer orders. in a couple of months you'll see more inventory, but not just yet.
    And if it shocks you, as you said: welcome to the Range Rover world. We missed you in 2013 & '14 when we waited 6-8 months for a vehicle and there was absolutely zip dealer stock for almost a year.

    I have a general custom ordering question. What is the average time from placing Land Rover order to receiving vehicle in the United States?

    We placed our order for a 17 RRS back in late August....still no vehicle. Our vehicle was completed a couple days before Thanksgiving. I guess Land Rover is not allowing any additional vehicles (not sure which ones) to be shipped right now as there is some sort of software issue that they are working on a fix for. The 17's that escaped being held back will more than likely be called back in for a software update of some sort in the near future. I was told that Land Rover is not providing any sort of time frame as to when they expect the issue to be resolved so that vehicles that are stockpiling up at the factory may be loaded up and shipped out.

    My order was placed in mid-August and I just saw this morning that the ship carrying it from the UK has just arrived at the port in Halifax (Canadian order) about an hour ago (it left the UK on Jan 4, 2017). I am told by the delearship that it should take about another 2-3 weeks before the car is ready for delivery.

    I haven't heard anything about software issues -- I will certainly ask about what such issues may be the next time I speak wit the dealer. JMC08 -- do you know what the issue is regarding?

    Lucky you! I think my frustration simply comes from being anxious for its arrival. Our delivery date has been pushed back three times now. Unfortunately, I do not know any specifics on what the issue is. My salesman contacted some regional Land Rover rep. who is in the know with production/shipment/ordering and all he was told is that Land Rover is halting further shipments due to some sort of software issue. Perhaps it only pertains to certain trim levels, or certain countries. Clearly, they have known of the issue for a couple months now as mine has been marked "completed" for that long. I wish I knew more details but I don't at the moment. I did contact Land Rover North America for clarification and have been told that my message would be passed along to the appropriate person. I will post any future news regarding this as I get it.

    Turns out that I am I'm slightly less than lucky -- after doing a VIN decoder check and then speaking with my dealer, it became clear that the dealer forgot to tick the box for a few of the options I wanted on the car, so the car that landed in Halifax this morning will not be mine. A new order will be placed and I will be waiting another 3-4 months.

    Get the Build Sheet. Always get the Build Sheet. That's the copy of the order that they put in. After the order is in, you have several weeks to tweak the order (or, fix the order).

    Lesson learned, just a little too late to be helpful in this instance! I have the build sheet for the 'new' order, and everything is correct. Unfortunately, the build date is March 3, 2017 and delivery isn't expected until the last week of April.

    Thats too bad. I fear being in that same boat. You wait so long for the new vehicle, only for it to arrive and not be equipped the way you had wanted. We put our order in and experienced several weeks where the order would default back to some basic build. Each time our salesman would put in what we wanted, the next time he or someone else would open up the order, it would change options. So, I'm paranoid that when our vehicle does finally show up, there may be an issue (although they say the dealer build program issue got fixed).
