- V-Series Cadillac(s)?
- 2022 CT4-V BW (ordered) / 2017 ATS-V (lease returned)
For sure it can change, a good example is last week when CT4 BW jumped to 20%, that's a pretty significant boost. Even the *very* small dealer I'm connected with got an allocation. I think we're gonna see waves like this going forward. Obviously GM wants to make and sell these cars, they make them a ton of money and they have zero incentive not to build as many of them as they can, we're just in a weird time with all the supplier issues. Most if not all the current constraints are listed as "supplier restriction".I see the weekly allocation is single digits, but could that change? I don't know enough about how GM manages parts inventory. I assume the engine guys are churning out powerplants, but are they stockpiling the various BW specific parts or building them to use? I guess I'm asking: assuming the constraints cleared up, could they clear up a bunch of order backlog by making a BW-heavy run?
Or is their JIT system such that it's not easy to make a shift like that?
