When will LC250 arrive Canada

My dealer hadn't received their FE yet, but had a 1968, LC and Premium arrive.

They also said the Premium deliveries will be hard to come by and regular LC trim will have more units produced. 24 total units allocated this year for a large dealer in Calgary.
 
Mapple Ridge BC Toyota has a Black 1958. Looks great but the tires are wimpy street tires so useless for any offroad. Port Moody has a LC model in Underground with decent tires for moderate offroad. Anyway does anyone know who has a Heritage Blue around the lower mainland?

My dealership got two Land Cruisers this week, however my order is apparently still pending fulfillment. Does anyone know what this means in the context of Toyota Canada? I don’t believe they’re tracked from the factory here, like they are in the US. Could one crop up, or am I going to be waiting for a while?
 
My dealer told me mid August so approx one month to go

Mine too. My dealer says "That means it's not been built yet, and unfortunately cannot provide any further info."

How do you know it's still pending? How do you track it? I did get build number but website directs me to my nearest dealer and says they will contact me.

This is what the salesperson told me. Speaking with a couple other dealerships, it sounds like they should know a few months in advance when your vehicle will land, which means they should see it before it leaves the factory. It may take a little while then. Alternatively, I know some dealerships have gotten Land Cruisers that are not spoken for, so you could always try calling around too.

I went to see this one today at another local dealership, which is the trim and color I want. Unfortunately it's sold and the waitlist is 30 people long. She's a real beauty in person:

Well, opportunity knocked and I answered. Dealership where my order is placed got their first two in: a Hertiage Blue FE and a black 1958.

I was near the top of the list and since the FE didn’t match any of the orders placed…she’s now mine!
 
I was able to test drive an LC non-premium yesterday. I'm very impressed with the ride quality. Only thing I've driven that comes close is a Cadillac SUV but without the wishy-washy steering feel that the Caddy had. I was initially concerned when I heard a loud humming sound at highway speed. I immediately ruled out the engine as it was at 1500 RPM at the time. I noticed that the port had installed cross bars on the roof rails which were likely the culprit. I remember reading in another thread that those can create quite a bit of noise.

The body roll that reviewers are reporting is definitely a thing. Not so noticeable in normal driving and cornering, but if you happen to swerve to avoid something and immediately correct, she wobbles like a weeble. I think it's a fair trade-off for that ride quality, considering the height and weight of the vehicle, but I imagine some people might be looking to stiffen it up a bit, particularly if they have riders that are prone to car sickness.
