The Chevrolet Colorado earned the distinction of having the fastest order-to-delivery (OTD) time in the 2017 model-year, averaging 64 days from the time a Colorado order was placed with the OEM to when the vehicle was delivered to a dealer.

Truck OTD was calculated from order placement to delivery to an upfitter or, if no upfitting was required, to a dealer. The days spent at an upfitter were not included in truck OTD times.

The finding came as part of the results of Automotive Fleet's annual OTD survey jointly completed with nine fleet management companies. The survey also ranked OTD times for cars, vans, and SUVs.

The participating fleet management companies were ARI, Donlen, Element Fleet Management, Emkay, LeasePlan USA, Merchants Fleet Management, Mike Albert Fleet Solutions, Union Leasing, and Wheels Inc. The OTD survey tracked deliveries of 137,034 new vehicles during the 2017 model-year that were comprised of 103 different models.
