I stopped by my local FIAT studio today and asked a salesperson, he says he doesn't know. His guess was that a bunch will be held in the port of Baltimore and then dealers will receive them all about the same time.

Any guesses?

When I was at my local studio about a month ago for an oil change I was talking to them about the X. They were estimating around May 22nd. They were going to receive 10 of them and 2 were already spoken for. I just checked there website and they don't show any. So I'm guessing they haven't received them yet. So much for getting any better info than you did.

Spoke to my local sales dude I'm dealing with, he advised today in the morning that they should have a few in by Saturday...their inventory currently lists 2 in transit , I'm starting to think they are holding them up to fix/update the software for the 9speed Auto's issues... I'm purchasing a pop if it all works out....

They're getting out there, the further you are from Baltimore, the longer it'll be. There's no tracking on them at all like the rest of the Fiats, so dealers won't really know until it arrives. The first one will just show up one day with no notice, fun times!

Received an e-mail from Matt Higgins (Gen Mgr) advising that an X has come in. -On-line inventory still shows zero so don't know if this car is for display and/or test drive purposes.

Saw one in the Providence, RI Studio yesterday when I went to pick up floor mats for my wife's 500L.

On Saturday, May 30, 2015, I went to Metro Fiat in Johnston, Rhode Island. They had only one 500X in the studio. The salesman quickly drove it out and allowed me to take it for a 20 minute ride. It's an incredible car!!! It's quiet, comfortable and looks very substantial, especially with its WIDE TRACK AND 17" WHEELS. This 500X was the Easy, but they are expecting a Trekking on Monday or Tuesday with all wheel drive. This car will sell very well. I can't think of any negatives.

So searching autotrader nationwide for Fiat 500x inventory it shows 52.... I know it does not reflect 100% of what truly is out there, but 52, really, and not one a Pop manual that I'm interested in. Saturday morning Rick Case salesman let me known they where not coming,blablablalabalala<--all I heard after him saying they are not coming soon....oh yeah and why can I search autotrader for Fiat 500x inventory but not FiatUsa website...just saying..

Usually when a all new car comes out they bring the loaded trim or mid trim first. Then after they have been all sold they bring out the base trim to the stores.

Everything is slowly getting on line. The cars just got into the country on three ships a couple of weeks ago. As for the Pop. They are expected to make up just 5% of 500X sales, while the Easy is estimated at 35% and should be the most popular. They have been trying to get me a car since March so I know what it's like! Hang in there!

slowly getting online is right, especially when FCA tries to get cars into the System and the VIN is not accepted.
I expected a much better launch for such a highly touted project within FCA and by some in the industry.
I'll expect the Pop model with the 1.4 turbo and 6speed by July, all the pops that I have been able to pull Window stickers on have been optioned up to the 2.4 auto package....

We must have seen the same one. I just moved to RI, so I thought I was in Providence, but when I had to go to Woonsocket yesterday I realized that it as actually in Johnston.

Minneapolis dealers now seem to be expecting their first shipment sometime around June 20th. They have a couple of Lounge Trims and one Easy.
