SLT-2 Awd 4cyldr NOT AVAILABLE in the North East

I just got a call from my dealership, seems the 2012 Terrain SLT-2 awd 4cyldr I ordered was rejected by GM and is NOT AVAILABLE in the Northeast ( I'm in New Jersey ) due to Federal Emissions. For some reason the FWD ok. The salesman has presenting the next best thing a SLT-1 trying to get as close to the SLT-2 package as he can, I have not seen the work up yet ( I'll get Saturday to see work up ). The dealership is blaming the Federal Goverment, but I can't see the emissions being too much different awd to fwd.

Oh this might blow this deal and I was so looking foward to my new Terrain.

hmm seems odd to me. I mean an slt-2 on a terrain is a ltz on an equinox i think? I know we have AWD ones here in NY. Maybe you could order up here in NY? or try another dealer, maybe he's pulling your leg to try to get you to buy a car he has on the lot, instead of ordering one.

Re: SLT-2 Awd 4cyldr NOT AVAILABLE in the North East

yes seems so odd to me. I droped by a local chevy dealership they thought this was odd too. their first reaction was that was strange, second they thier " allocation " be done ( whtever that really means ), but they didn't check while I was there ( emissions ).
This really could be true , but it sure does sound fishy. Has anyone ever heard of this before.
I am only dealing with the sales rep, but he said his general manager has looked into this. I this a ploy to get me to but a Terrain they either have on the lot or trade another dealership. I want to believe this guy but man this weird

Re: SLT-2 Awd 4cyldr NOT AVAILABLE in the North East

My guess is it has to do with either dealership allocation or market allocation. I just purchased a 2012 Terrain in Merlot Jewel. I placed my order at a dealership 3 days after they added Merlot Jewel to the ordering guide. GM refused the order for 3 weeks due to "market allocation" and saying they were only allowing a set number of Merlow Jewel in each area. He seemed to think the number was at 10 for all dealerships in the Cincinnati area market.

I'm wondering with the 2.4 being a hot item and you being in the northeast where AWD is recommended if they are limiting AWDs being shipped up there at all right now. There may be a few months before GM will take an order for any AWD for that area so they can still fullfill other parts of the country.

I just can't see how emisions has anything to do with it since that would be a countrywide thing and not state wide.

Re: SLT-2 Awd 4cyldr NOT AVAILABLE in the North East

The dealer never said anything like that over the phone, that at least is understandable. I just did the live chat at GMC.com and they say this is true "showing restriction" for my area. My dealership is telling that I would not be able to register the as a new vechical at NJDMV ( only used ). Here is the real kicker the chat agent did find a SLT-2 awd 4 cyldr in North Jersey. I"m guessing it was ordered for someone as I've been searching like a man man over the last 3 months. I find them online and they are gone within 2 days. It sure sounds like they are ordered.

The is way it supossed to be in the entire north east......Oh my head is spinning
How much difference for emissions can there be 2.4ltr awd vs 2.4ltr fwd or the same from SLT-1 and SLT-2 ?

emisions is a state thing try to buy a dealer trade from another state in Calif and see if they can do it
I think Fla. is another one of those states that require more standards.. I once had a dealer do a dealer trade for me from a dealer in ohio and when it got to pa he couldn't sell it to me as it didn't have 50 states emission on it..

Had to go with the 18 XT5

I thought it was state but when he said federal emissions that's what threw me off.
