    I wonder if orders still start in March. March to end if June is a pretty big gap. Maybe end of June for dealer orders for their lots. And what about pricing. And there’s a secret announcement?? Man this just makes waiting even harder and more anxious.

    I thought it was coming out around the end of April (at the end of the second quarter of this year). Coming out at the end of June is 2 months later. And at the end of June is almost at the beginning of July which is the third quarter of this year. Wonder what gives here.

    I was not thrilled reading this article earlier. The never ending wait continues...

    Its automotive industry logic, sorry for that. If you release it on the last day of June, at 11:59 PM, its technically still released in Q2.

    The target timing plan probably includes a few weeks baked in for delays or if issues pop up. If things go smooth it could be sooner I'm guessing.

    Keep pushing it back. I don't mind the extra time to save for a larger downpayment.

    Hey now, lets not wish that. I have saved and am ready, plus not sure how long my 220k mile XJ will hold out as my DD. Even if its out sooner you can still wait and continue to save.

    Well, my dealer hilariously told me that pricing would be available three weeks after the LA Auto Show reveal. Whoops.

    And I have my heart increasingly set on a "Late Availability" color... Even if it's 2 month late, and then 2 months for my order to come in, I probably don't have my butt in the seat until August... minimum.

    Ugh. It's painful.

    Ditto the reactions.

    So ordering takes 2-3 months. June-May-April. Order banks open in March ish. That might make some sense.

    HOW MUCH???
