Delivery Dates

I was told by my dealer today that F-Types on order now will be delivered in July. This seems later than Jaguar had originally indicated.

RE: Delivery Dates

I am not surprised by the delay. Bringing a new car to market is an incredible feat of logistics.

We were lucky enough to have put a deposit down at our dealership in October. The orders for the F Type opened January 28 at noon EST in the USA. Our order was placed within the dealership alotment of 7 that day. Our order shows a tentative build starting the second week of May and expected delivery to customer of June 25, 2013. According to the order print out the dates are tentative until Monday April 1.

We were also told that we may not have the first one at the dealership because Jaguar has told them they have stock units on the line so that one or two would be arrive at each dealership for customers to see/test.

PS This was in an e-mail directly from Jaguar Corp NJ dated January 28 (2013), to answer a question I had:

"I just saw a bulletin that said the order call is opening noon EST today, so it should have just opened."

Response today March 1 from Jaguar:

"Mark, production did start as planned, with no delays, so your build timing of May is probably still accurate. We just got a truckload of cars delivered for dealer training, and they look amazing.


Best regards,

I put a deposit down for the base V6 back on 12/15/2012.

[size=x-small](TP04) Cirrus/Jet with Cirrus Stitch: N/C
(LKG) Satellite Grey: $600
(B55C) Performance Seat: $1,500
(Z61H) Premium Pack 1: $3,000[/size]

For what it's worth as of 3/8/13 my most recent build sheet shows:

[size=x-small]Order Created Date: 2/2/13
Last Date of Order Change: 4/9/13
Factory Complete Date: 5/22/13
Accepted Build Date: 5/1/13
Current Planned Build Date: 5/1/13
Requested Delivery Date: 7/8/13
Accepted Delivery Date: 7/8/13
Current Planned Delivery Date: 7/8/13[/size]

Note the factory complete and delivery dates have improved by about 27 days form my initial build sheet. Seems to me it might be possible for Jaguar to even improve the schedule further - at least it's trending the right way.

GerryJag,
Orders were updated yesterday by Jaguar. Check with your dealer to see if your order/build/delivery dates have moved. Here are my dates as of yesterday;

Accepted Build Date 5/1/13
Current Planned Build Date 5/1/13
Factory Complete Date 5/22/13
Accepted Delivery Date 6/25/13
Current Planned Delivery Date 6/25/13

These are the same dates dates as I was told in January. Also, Jag Corp in NJ says there have not been any delays and things are going as planned. Also they do have vehicles on the line that are "stock" vehicles for the dealers that will be delivered before the ordered vehicles. The first vehicles to hit the dearler lots should be the end of May here in the USA. First order vehicles will begin hitting in early mid June depending on the dealer.

PS I am not sure how or why your delivery dates "improved" by 27 days and still shows July delivery. I put my deposit down in October, but my dealer did not order until the day orders opened the end of Januay. My delivery date is the same now as it was shown in January (June delivery). What is also strange is my build complete date is the same as yours but my delivery date is almost 2 weeks earlier. I live in Houston so the vehicle may arrive at the port of Houston and will have quicker delivery to the dealer compared to vehicles that have to be transported.

RE: Delivery Dates

I also went back and looked and my Order Created Date is 1/28/13. You show 2/2/13 for your order created date, but I am not sure that matters. My dealer and Jag Corp noted that the dealership orders are "pre slotted" based on the dealers and you will fall in their window. Anyway, I can only assume extra transport time for the difference in our delivery dates.

RE: Delivery Dates

FYI, I too was quoted a 6/26 delivery date in the Boston area. However, my dealer just said delivery was pushed up a couple of weeks, although he didn't give me the exact date.

I ordered in March, but I was able to spec a car the dealer already had on order. They're getting a static display car tomorrow, which ill be checking out. I think they'll get their launch cars towards the end of the month.

V6S, Salsa Red.
