I ended up placing an order for a Mineral Gray with Black on the 27th after I was there with the dealer GM talking to his rep and he confirmed they have no idea how long Saddle will be on hold. I've already got a VIN which would not have been the case if I were to wait on Saddle.

As for the Audi/Touareg/Cayenne vs. WK2 debate, I've had a 2004 Cayenne Turbo and a 2008 Touareg V8. I sold the Touareg and am replacing it with an Overland 4X4. To me the Overland has a better highway ride, far better offroad cred and packs a lot more bang for the buck than the VW group triplets and I've been a huge fan of them for a long time.
This (on hold) saddle issue is disappointing if true. I have a VIN, but will check to see if my Summit delivery date (currently slated as 1/12) will push.

I believe Summit's come "standard" with the Saddle interior and that's why it's on hold for new "regular" Overland orders. At least that's what the regional rep told the dealer. I imagine they don't want to have $50K+ MSRP orders on hold for an interior color.

So, if you order is for a Summit and it's been accepted and assigned a VIN it should get built.

Ahhh, ok. Still disappointing for 'any' buyer expecting a Saddle interior but I'll stay tuned here. Did speak w/Chrysler today and they validated 1/14 delivery, and that the car was at the gate dock to be built. Will stay tuned thks for clarification.
