Does anyone know the sequence or stages and time lapse from placing an order with a dealer to delivery of a 2015 Cadillac ATS Coupe 2.0T RWD.

I heard there were ordering phases and build priorities.

When you order a new Mercedes or BMW you can track your car on line from order, to build, to putting on the boat, to crossing the Alantic, to car carrier to dealer. Even Chryler has a
less elaborate system.

Cadillac's system of a dealer update every weeks does not make the grade in the high tech age.

If your dealer won't update you anytime you ask, the Cadillac customer reps on the forums will. Its a shame that GM killed a 3rd party tracking site for their vehicle orders. The site used the same APIs the dealer tools did. Eventually the creators who claim to have done it just out of frustration of having to beg their dealer for updates asked to be compensated for the bandwidth, etc costs but GM pulled the plug on the APIs at the same time for what I believe was complaints from dealers unhappy about either customers finding out they were dragging their feet on orders or missing out on the forced relationship with a dealer to get any status. Sort of a Stockholm syndrome thing.

It's inconceivable to me in this day and age that any manufacturer doesn't provide a tracking system for customers. But I suppose they actually do. They just don't think of us a customers. Only dealers are customers. For whatever reason, GM pulled the plug on a tracking system provided by a 3rd party so they can't blame it on it being too expensive for them to provide a way.

GM definitely does not care much if any about special orders. And I wouldn't care if dealers handled them well but some don't. So the dealer who places an order for you is key.
