Any way to determine where you are "in line" for either the Pickup or SUV?

I've heard people saying the order #s are not sequential, and besides that, I am guessing each dealer will get some allocation of Hummer EVs for both pickups and SUVs. Ford completely ruined the "reservation system" for Ford Broncos, so I hope GMC has some better plan for getting these reservations converted into orders, and then actually building the Hummer for the customer who reserved.

Production is also very low now for the pickup, I sure hope it ramps quickly in Q3 and Q4 and then they can actually start building the SUV early in 2023.

Welcome to the forum! Lots of info here about production rates, specifically when the Lordstown factory fully opens, but no there is no way to tell exactly where you are in line. Dealers and concierge know very little also. Some fall delivery people have already received their edition 1’s while some spring people are still waiting

Yup, best advice is wait patiently until it shows up, its worth the wait.

Agree. There are no allocations, just reservations to fulfill at the dealer you chose. I call bluff anyway --> No way GM will deliver 23,000 Hummer EV this year. They are behind and getting more behind. They will have to address issues, dealers aren’t ready these as require pre-delivery installs and setup/checks to be fully ready for delivery, they need factory zero running efficiently, the Ultium battery factory ramping up to at least 20% or so, and definitely need to solve their logistics issues (they can barely ship 50 at a time it seems), and fix their supply chain issues (i.e. ones at dealers then having to wait on running boards to install, hooks, or other accessories). It is a process flow fully of bottlenecks right now.

I think every timeline you've heard will end up bumping out about a year at least.

Also, there are no “allocations” per dealer like usual. If there are 200 reservations at your dealer they’ll get 200 hummers. If those 200 reservations were back to back in the “line” then your dealer would get 200 hummers as fast as GM could ship them. There are some exceptions on here but by and large it’s first come first serve regardless of dealer. Oh, and your dealer has to be ready for delivery. My original dealer was still working on installing their chargers, etc, to prep for deliveries so I moved it to a dealer that’s already delivered 3 and guarantees MSRP.

my dealer has 800 HummerEV deposits total, there is going to be a lot of them around here.

Thanks. Has GM committed that reservations be converted to orders and built according to timestamp of initial reservation? I would imagine that some dealers would get priority for their orders given their higher sales volume with GMC, regardless of whether they give typical allocations for the Hummer EV. I am guessing GM could manipulate this to please their volume movers.

No, GM doesnt appear to be building and delivering based on time stamp, at least for edition 1 orders. Hard to pinpoint their priorities but location, dealer set up, and shortages seem to have an affect on who gets theirs first. Seems as though location has been the main factor so they can get multiple on one truckload that are coming to the same or nearby locations so the driver doesn't have to divert far off one route.
