Will be picking up my Gold Coast Silver with beige and black interior with the Prestige Package on Monday 12/28. It came in yesterday Saturday 12/26. I ordered mine early August.

So @AJB how is it so far? Can you post more pics? Any first thoughts on how it drives? etc.
Well the funny part is I drove it home on Monday afternoon in traffic, it was only a 20 minute drive and I haven't driven it since! It's been in the garage and I've been learning the technology, setting it up to my liking. There's a lot of technology to learn.
I already drove a test GV80 with the Prestige Package and 3.5TT so I already knew about its performance. As their advertising states, it has "Athletic Elegance" and I agree. It's not the fastest crossover out there but a 13.9 second quarter mile and top speed of 149 mph is ample. It's very quiet with some nice exhaust sound to hear. The 22" wheels do give it a harder ride but not by much. The torque kicks in very early, a lot of power. I look forward to getting her on an open highway and see how she feels.

"How it drives" comes under the still a lot to learn. I felt like I was fighting the wheel on the Interstate, as it wanted to do the steering. I'll be going through the set-up screen again today! Delivery by my dealer was excellent.

I was going to get the 4 cylinder, but would have to wait to get the prestige package, so I took the 6.
Mine is Goldcoast silver with the black interior. Drove through the rain all the way home, and it really doesn't show the dirt.

Also, my dealer sells at sticker price. I have heard of dealers jacking up the price.
You'll be happier with the Prestige Package with the 3.5TT. I purchased mine at sticker price minus the dealer prep, I wouldn't pay for that (dealer prep), it's a rip off. When I ordered mine back in early August I told my dealer I wouldn't pay the dealer prep and if they were going to make an issue of it I would just order my GV80 at another dealership, end of story, they dropped it.

So there's so much technology with the Prestige Package I actually burned a quarter tank of gas sitting in my garage and sometimes driveway familiarizing myself and setting it up to my liking. That's how long it took to get through it all!

I ordered 2.5 AWD advanced with blue and dune back in mid Nov. Dealer has no idea when it will arrive. The only update he has is that the order hasn't been picked up yet. He said that realistically, it could be March or April. Anyone facing such long delays?
I had no heads up at all when my GV80 arrived. I happened to be driving into the dealership parking lot and spotted my Gold Coast Silver with Prestige Package. I went there to show my wife up front and close the GV80 without any idea mine showed up that morning. The salesperson was too busy with customers and only found out a few hours earlier but didn't have time to call me yet. Long story made short, yours may show up unexpectedly too.

Hopefully it arrives soon. Thanks for the reply man.
Purchasing a new vehicle is always exciting and we want to get the call that it arrived as soon as possible. Best thing is to get back to your daily routine and call your salesperson once a month to touch base and drop a hint or two you've been shopping around at other Genesis dealerships looking to see if your color and option model may be available elsewhere, another words whoever comes up with your color and option choice first gets your money.
Time passes fast, it'll be here before you know it.

Keep us posted!
