A GM internal document that lays out the 2021 Model Year Vehicle Build-Out Report as well as the 2022 Model Year Vehicle Start-Up landed in our mailbox today. What we see that is of particular interest is that the report includes the dates for the final Consensus and the Dealer Order Submittal Process (DOSP) for the 2021 model year.
In reviewing the documents, we note that GM is not showing the final build-out date for the 2021 Corvettes, and there is no date for the 2022 Model Year Start-Up. Instead, it’s the only model on both lists of passenger cars from Buick/Cadillac/Chevrolet with a “To Be Determined (TBD)” in the column.
What it does tell us is that the final consensus for the model year will come on June 1st which should include the final allocation numbers for the 2021 model year. Dealers will then have until June 17th for the final orders to be submitted.
In Wednesday’s article on the three 2021 colors being retired, Shadow Gray’s final order date is May 27th and the last Target Production Weel (TPW) for the color is listed as July 19th. With the final DOSP for 2021 Corvettes coming on June 17th, we believe that the 2021 Corvette model year will likely end sometime in mid-August.
However, with no build-out date listed for the 2021 model year, GM does have some flexibility to extend it out further depending on what those final consensus numbers will be.
