I just checked every 2014 CTS-V dealer order in California via GM Global and a few of them have already been produced as they show a 3800 status and have VIN numbers. 2014 CTS-V production began this past Monday, June 10, 2013. That was quick!

Just thought those of you with 2014 V orders would like to know. I know the wait is probably killing you.

It is driving me crazy. I've given my dealer my 14 V coupe order but the color I ordered (Phantom Gray Metallic) is apparently on constraint, so the order can't be placed.

So far, only a few V coupes have been produced for California dealers. There are orders placed in the bank for V sedans, but no V sedans have been produced so far as of today. No dealer in California has either placed an order for a V wagon or no V wagon orders have been accepted by GM as of yet. Again, I only checked California. I didn't have time to check the other 49 states but I could check other states if you guys want.

Do you guys have order numbers you want me to check?

Hello GM-4-LIFE,

Thank you for providing this information. I am sure those with a 2014 V order are very anxious to get the vehicle in their hands!

It is my pleasure! This is a passion of mine and I am more than happy to assist my fellow V owners!

I am in the process of getting a 2013 black raven V Coupe. I should be taking delivery in the next few days. Just waiting on the dealer trade process to be completed.

With all the talk of ordering a new v coupe I have different question. I am going to order a v coupe but not quite ready yet. When do you think the latest you can put in an order and still get one? I want to order one tomorrow but my wife wants to wait till the end of the year.

You can put an order in at the end of the year and still get one. They will be producing current gen Vs until June of 2014. You are fine.

I guess we'll have to wait until the first 2014 is delivered before they change the name of the forums again ;)

Hello all prospective '14 V owners in California, which dealers have you ordered from? I am located in Irvine (92612) and would like to work with knowledgeable dealers. Two local dealers do not want the business, because both of them told me no '14 Vs or V-wagons are available to be ordered due to new body style, even after my pointing them to this forum for updates. I am not comfortable educating the very people who I have to pay on what they are supposed to know / willing to learn. Appreciate the help in advance. Dan

I just got a '13 V Coupe from him this past Saturday.

I called Don and he will confirm with his boss on whether they can order the '14. Thanks Shawn!

Hi Shawn, as an update, Don called me back just now and said Caddy is not accepting any orders for '14 Vagons. He said that according to what he can see, only one Vagon is in the production pipeline - likely for GM's promo/photo purposes. I'm just gonna have to wait and check in with him from time to time...

Thanks for referring him to me; he was prompt and very professional.

Ok well I have placed an order for a '14 Vagon and have a GM order number....they are not building any 14 Wagons until mid/late September but unless something changed I don't think you are prohibited from submitting an order thru the dealer. Apparently they wouldn't normally have started accepting orders when builds would not be starting to 3-4 months but they did so maybe they have now pt a block on accepting any more orders to avoid people like me being disappointed and finding out they will have to wait 5 months for their vehicle.

It is my pleasure. I got two cars from him in two months. That's how good he is and I have to drive to him from Northridge. I drove cause his deals were the best I could find anywhere in So Cal and his customer service was simply the best. You live VERY close to Renick Cadillac, so it's an even easier decision to go with him.

I heard the same thing. GM has only accepted a total of ONLY 5 V Wagon orders from the entire state of CA. They are not accepting orders for them right now. I believe it is due to the all new 2014 CTS body style production run and being the V Wagon is ultra low production, they really aren't pushing to produce them. GM is going to push hard to ramp up production for the new CTS body as a high priority. They may take all V Wagon orders and produce them all at the same time just to get them completed.

Sounds like wagons will wait until the initial inventory-building push for CTS sedans is done.

One in production -- I wonder which new color it is.

Well boys and girls - I truly hope your `14 Wagons get built.

As with all of you, it seems the Dealer Awareness Level can vary significantly... so when everyone was mixed on whether or not the Wagons would be available after MY 2013 I went ahead and jumped. I think my order went in literally on the last week of MY `13 acceptance.

Now, I'm even more glad I did - I can't imagine having a deposit down and potentially waiting until September to know if it's even going to be made or not. Ugh. But that circa 2006 tech Navigation system will totally make up for it! :D

Yeah unfortunately when I went in to place my order I missed the closure on '13's by like a week :(
Fortunately I am already planning out my full wireless iPhone video integration/mirroring for the out of date Nav/head unit so if all goes well, it will be better than anything CUE could even offer if JT was available.

As of June 18, 2013, your order is at 3000 status which means it was accepted by production control. Your TPW (target production week) is 9/23/2013.

As of June 25, 2013, your order is at 3000 status which means it was accepted by production control. Your TPW (target production week) is 9/30/2013.

Keep in mind that time flies and you will be in your V Wagon before you know it!

07-06-13, 02:48 PM
Thanks very much for the info. Realizing that wagon production won't start until late September I feel that a TPW of 9/30 ain't too bad. I ordered the Vagon in Obsession Red with black leather, 6-speed, Recaros, sunroof, polished wheels and yellow calipers. I currently have a 2010 CTS Premium red wagon and love it. The V will be a great upgrade. I'm retired and only drive about 6k miles a year so I can live with the poor gas mileage. Any idea where I can find invoice pricing for 2014 (my order for the V is based on invoice)? Thanks again.

Dave,

The dealer won't have an invoice without a VIN# and that won't happen until the week of 9/30/2013.

I can pull the invoice for you at that time.

Feel free to PM me at anytime.

Thanks!

Edmunds.com should have invoice pricing available eventually. You might go there to calculate the 2013 equivalent invoice price so you know about where you'll be.

GM-4-LIFE
07-06-13, 10:19 PM
Keep in mind 2014 invoice pricing is higher than 2013 invoice pricing. Between $500 to $1,000 higher on the 2014 invoices I have pulled up so far.
