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...
