Everyone is going to have a different opinion and answer for this. In my opinion, dealers are ranked along with their allocations. My dealer has 4 allocations sold and confirmed and not one picked up for production yet. And the first three commitments where the week of 10/13. I feel that GM didn't confirm orders with most dealers until right before production as they made the decision to build exactly what everyone ordered. That wasn't the case when orders started. GM wanted a different mix of V8 to V6, and finally agreed to a 50/50 mix and eventually, it seems, what was exactly ordered. There are so many threads and comments on this and most of us don't really know the right story. I hope that when mine finally gets picked up, I can use it as a tracking example for others that ordered from a smaller dealer.
