I decided to replace my 2015 XC70 with a new XC60. Following my March visit to the dealership in Toronto, Canada I discovered that all base model 2019 XC60 T5 were sold and the only option (if I wanted the base model) was to place an order for 2020 XC60. So I did. The delivery date given to me was July 20. Last month I was informed it was changed to October 20.
Another annoying thing is that 2020 XC60 model does not come with leather seats as in previous years. An artificial leather is now a default and for a real leather there is a charge of CAD $1,500.
Anyway, Iím hoping that some of you have more knowledge in the areas listed below and are willing to share it.
1. Is it normal to wait 8 month for XC60 factory order?
2. Is there any way to trace Volvo factory order?
3. Is there a correlation between waiting time and a shift of XC60 production from Sweden to China?
4. Are there any more changes between 2019 and 2020 XC60 than seats cover material?
Appreciate any input.
