And I just got a call that the van is ready for pickup. That was fast.

Yes, that’s Graphite. Thought about a metallic color but decided to go Graphite. Still wish it were Stone, but we will still have some great adventures.

Looks great. My identical 4x4 170 Graphite just finished production, fingers crossed it gets shipped out as quickly as yours did! I saw a 170 Stone in person recently as well as a Graphite, and I have to say, the Graphite sure does look slick in ALL lighting conditions. :)

I had a May build date and was told 6 weeks ago that the van was out of production. I followed up several times for a delivery update. Finally I asked the sales guy to call the factory and find out what the issues is. He told me that it's a shortfall on some parts, due to the tariff situation. I asked him if it was the JIT (Jut In Time) delivery system, which he claimed it was not. I am not quite sure about that. He indicated that parts were due in soon and there would be a lot of van's released in early October.

Pretty much our exact story as well, even said something about the tariffs. We were told we got pulled for production in April, and got a call last week that our release date is 10/6. We had the stone grey paint that needed changing, we also have tons of options including a driver side door. Not sure how much that all has to do with it but could see how extra/different parts are slowing it down.

Geez guys this kinda ruined my evening......no surprise though we are in the same boat and the last update we had was a Sept 2 release date but already had expected that to change, based on what you've both said I imagine I'll hear the same thing shortly.

Picked up my 170 today in graphite. Dealer confirmed that only 3 colors are currently available. Makes me feel quite lucky to get my second color choice after having to change from Stone.

Maybe by limiting it to three colors they can focus on better paint control. I laughed when I saw the little drop in the photo.
