Default Delivery of trucks from Mexico plant?

The 2014 trucks that have been delivered to customers todate all seem to be quads or cc's made in Warren. Has anyone taken delivery yet of a regular cab, any model, made in Mexico?
I ordered my SLT, regular cab, on 6/28 and it has been in transit for over 2 weeks!

We have some dealers local that have recieved theres. I am convinced until someone proves me wrong that Dodge is holding the cheaper modles until they get some of the higher end trucks on the lot. Mine has been setting for almost a month and not shipped and all I get is BS reasons. Was told Saturday was ready and was shipping. Five days later has not moved. People on here ordered after me already have theres but no cc Express. Locally dealers have plenty now but no regular cabs and no Express modles.

My dealer has one regular cab Tradesman, and he has had it for over a week. My truck left the Mexico plant on 8/14 and scheduled delivery at the dealer is 8/30. I believe all trucks leaving Mexico go by rail to a big rail yard in Arkansas and then get on another train to their final rail destination.

This might be regional, around here all I have seen on the dealer sites as either in transit or arrived are Tradesman and SLT trim levels. Almost all Quad and a couple of regular, no crew.

Holding built trucks makes no sense. The factories don't get paid (can't bill the dealer) till the truck ships. Plus, if it were a matter of getting higher end trucks on the lot 1st, wouldn't it make more sense to just build them 1st? Then there's no need to store them or they get paid, for what they built...

If a built truck is being held, I have a feeling they're waiting on a part, that needs to be added, or they need a replacement part... Maybe even damage that needs repair...

Just talked with my dealer. My truck was ordered on 6/28 and completely built by 7/15. The plant put it into storage and it sat there for 5 weeks until they loaded it onto a train on 8/24!
The train is still in Mexico waiting to clear customs! Dealer expects it by 9/15.
Two months for a completely built truck to reach the dealer!
Actually, this delay doesn't really bother me as I'm hopeful there may be some September incentives on the 2014's. Also, I've been piling up the miles this summer on my trade in Toyota truck as the dealer has already agreed to the trade in price regardless of how many more miles I put on the truck.
I laugh about my situation but I really feel for some of you guys who need your new truck on a timely basis!

Yea I would agree with them wanting to sell the more expensive models. Maybe they want to test the radios to see if any possible fixes are going to work out.
