For anyone interested in doing a factory order on an Equinox, I am starting this thread so others may have an idea of what to expect.
Ok. . . .. that and wife and I love ordering a vehicle with what we want on it . . . no more and no less. So here's the thread to document the adventure. We have purchased off the lot a few times before and always end up with a $900 sun roof, or worse, a "package" with other things we do not prefer. So this time we will order out. So far our veteran salesman, who we've known for many years, tells us it will be 6 to 8 weeks. This is taking into account Holiday shut down time for the plant. I am ordering now for the mid to late February time frame delivery since historically there are numerous stackable incentives. I did this last in in 2010 when we purchased my Colorado LT2 Crew Cab 3.7L Z71.
So here is the order:
Yesss. . . it is Champagne Silver Metallic. It will be wife's daily driver and she thinks it looks more "elegant" in this color. We both wish they still offered Moca Brown Metallic.
