I gave up. My local dealer wouldn't let me order one. He put me on a "list" and I never heard from them again.
I contacted AC directly and they referred me back to the local dealer. I found the dealer in Butte Montana had a 2022 and I drove the 12 hours and snapped it up.
I wanted the new clutch only available on the SE and LTD.
It's still breaking in, I'll probably order the new clutch and put it on myself.

Yes, the base model. I wanted the newer clutch.
Somehow the dealer in Butte Montana was able to get a 2022 when the Las Vegas dealer couldn't.
I asked what the problem was, they said they weren't sure but they think Fox is behind on shocks. This is just dealer hearsay though.

I don't know what Textron has on their mind. I just spent $22,000 on a new Wildcat and they didn't make it easy. There are few, if any, new 2022 Wildcats at dealers anywhere in the country. When I contacted Arctic Cat directly, it took them about a month to write me back and they didn't answer my questions, they mostly blew me off and told me to contact my local dealer, which I already had and they pretty much blew me off too.
I live out west near Dumont and Glamis. If Textron would have developed a turbo, and then a 4 seater, they'd sell hundreds of thousands out here.
My new Wildcat has 4.5 hours on it so far.

Your Vegas dealer didn't blow your off, they got their allotment of machines and were told by Arctic cat they couldn't order more.
That makes sense because I tried to give the dealer money to reserve a machine and they wouldn't take it. I'll say that again. A dealer wouldn't take my money.
I had my wife call around and she found the dealer in Butte MT just got a new 2022.
There were a couple in California but they marked them up to almost $30,000.

If there's demand for these machines, why aren't they cranking them out?
I don't understand any of this.

I hope AC is not going anywhere and keeps the XX model. But until they announce it at a dealer model release show, or tell the dealers we are building cars. I’d have to wonder? Arctic Cat is the only Sport UTV manufacture not listed to have a display at this years Super Sand Sport Show in September.

The current Speed model is not $20+K, but the XX it’s not even in the same stratosphere as the new Speed car. But for a 2nd or 3rd model I could see Speed looking to get into the NA market to compete with Polaris N/A, Talon, KRX, YXZ and if the XX is no longer available, then it fills that void too.

And Yes Speed had contracted Hisun as one of their CM’s. They have several CM’s building parts for the new Speed car. Don’t be too shocked to find out that AC uses Hisun or others in CN for parts too. Hisun makes parts for several brands. That’s why they have 7.1 million sqft of manufacturing space. 300,000 in TX and an new 300,000 sqft in MX.
In this recent video, Robbie says not all parts are made in USA.
