If it is true that stelantis is really holding them until march I’m canceling my order faster than whatever cooperate morons’ decision this was can say Dodge. The amount of broken promises relating to the launch of this car has sapped whatever excitement I had left for it.
It could be a US regulatory thing. There are still no EPA fuel economy numbers for it, nor any NHTSA or IIHS data. I'm not sure the "rules" for selling vehicles without at least some safety and efficiency data available, but that would be my two cents.
(Further speculation) Not to mention getting more of a marketing push, probably mass market (non-enthusiast) "announcement" with a super bowl ad, coupled with a launch ad during the NCAA basketball playoffs.
