Default 4x4s Trickling in to U.S.?

Outside Van posted three photos yesterday on Instagram of a 2019 4x4 they just took delivery of, saying it was the second one to arrive in the U.S. and “the first of many more to come this summer.” Hope they’re right.

WOW, finally! The demand for the 4x4's is insane. I wonder if we are at the PEAK of #vanlife movement or it's still growing.

Interesting. I’ve read on this forum so much goofy stuff slowing delivery, like the led headlights not arriving until July...this one at outside vans has them. I have to say I’m envious of this customer.

They get the first because they are Fleet customer and a certified upfitter. Just perks of ordering dozens of vans a year

Talked to my dealer today. He said it would take 12+ months to get one. He could get one but it would take a long time. Incidentally, and I’ve not idea if this is true! He said MB was talking of an AWD model at some point (2020 or 2021) which wouldn’t have low range and wouldn’t have a lift.

I still want to find a slot to rover a 148” crew van.

I placed a 4x4 order a month ago, slated for May production. The only thing the dealer would say is that MB said delivery from SC would be no later than October. Personally, I don't quite follow the timing logic from production to delivery, but he would not discuss anything more detailed.

I was #2 on his list for 6 months. When he got a notification from MB that he had a 170 4x4 allotted, #1 was not ready yet, so I grabbed this dealers first 4x4 delivery.

Which dealer? Seattle? Any idea how long his list is?

Spoke to Warner Vans today. They are the only stand alone sprinter dealer in the country. They said they are months away from getting any delivered. Have a bunch of allotments waiting in line. He said when it is your turn you don't get to choose what body style. You just get to choose options. LOL. What a crock from Mercedes.

Several dealers have short roof cargo models with LED headlight packages and heated power seats. No other packages included.Kinda like tits on a bullfrog far as I'm concerned

Shame on MB for not giving it's loyal clients what they want. That build website is false advertising.
