Hi all...

I've ordered a loaded black R/T back on the 3rd of January... as I have seen that R/T's are popping up in the states, I followed up with my contact for western canada and asked about the status of our Canadian orders...

his response was that our units (mine & the four units the factory promised the dealerships) are still in pre-production with an estimated build date of late february 2007 and hopefully will be delivered by the end of March 2007.

He knows that R/T's are out in the states but no one in Canada is getting any yet...

Just an update for everyone...

Sask R/T

Hope that you are right about the build dates. I ordered my R/T at the end of January and as of today I still don't have a build date. The dealer told me to phone back tomorro as Tuesdays is when they get updates. So will have to see!!!

Hey hence,

You didn't by chance order a 'full-time' 4x4 R/T did you? I ordered an Inferno Red full-time 4x4 R/T back in December and still no word on a build date. :( I've read on here that the full-time 4x4's are delayed big time but the funny thing is my dealer rep says there's no apparent delay :confused: . I'm beginning to regret ordering the 'full-time' since I'm so eager to drive it!! Anyway, congrats on your soon-to-be R/T. Lucky!!

Oh, BTW, I'm from Calgary. :beerchug:

Good to know! I'd love to see pics when you get yours. My understanding is that your centre console will either have a 4x2/4x4 dial (part-time 4x4) or no dial at all (full-time 4x4). I could be wrong though. But I'm definitely curious to see what you get. Now I'm even more excited! This waiting is killing me. Hopefully my turn is coming up!

Thanks for the response neighbour!

It must be delayed for a long time. If you go to both the Canadian and US Dodge sites the full time four wheel drive isn't even listed as an option anymore. When I first started checking out the R/T it was listed as an option (I wanted it as well) but it disappered sometime in Jan. as I remember.

Yes, I noticed that option vanished in January as well which is another reason I'm nervous. So my understanding is that you in theory "asked" for it since you wanted all options and yet your RT is already built and being shipped as we speak. And your dealer didn't mention anything about that?

There's two rumour going around that they either 1) decided to build all remaining RT's with full-time 4x4 as a standard feature, or 2) they're not going to make this available until the 2008 models.

What really bothers me is that our dealership says there's no problems or delays....so then why has mine not been built yet?? Looks like I'll have to make a trip to the dealer and see what's up. Seems weird that a dealer knows less than the general public. Sad.

Just to let you guys know. I've seen three R/T's in Calgary now and all of them have the part time 4X4. One just landed last week and it also was part time. My thinking is that the full time 4X4 won't be coming out until '08. The salesman I spoke to wasn't even sure when that was going to happen. Hope this helps!!!

Congrats on your new RT hence and thanks for the update! I can't wait to see the pics.

This is exactly what I was worried about, every single RT is pt 4x4 and no signs of ft coming soon. I hate being lied to, especially from someone I'm dishing almost $40G to. Very frustrating. I wonder what I'll hear next...

Anyway, have fun! :)

Yes, I even told this to my dealer. All they tell me is that "Well, your order is a BX status and when we spoke to the Chrysler rep he says there's no issues or delays for ft 4x4's. It should be any time now when we hear of an official build date". And that's it, same answer from them for weeks. I also keep telling them that there's a few R/Ts floating around our city now and they told me originally that I should be one of the first to get one since I ordered so soon. And I still have BX status????? Hmmmm....me thinks there's no ft 4x4's this model year. Just a guess :rolleyes:

My dealer also gave me a code B? (I'm a null brain and can't remember the second letter). But what ever the code was he told me that my code meant that my Nitro was waiting on parts. The thing that he couldn't tell me is if it was just my Nitro or if it was the whole production line (did they pull mine off to the side?).

So here I am waiting for two months and I still have no idea when I will be taking delivery.
