10 March 2013 :
Speaking of the V6, when are the 2013 Santa Fe 6-7 passenger, long-wheelbase models going to be available in U.S. showrooms? This seems more than a glitch in that Hyundai spent a ton of money advertising the 6-7 passenger model at the Super Bowl as well as the Oscars. Yet no vehicles at the dealerships!
I contacted Hyundai USA and got a non-answer about quality. I then contacted Hyundai Worldwide but have yet to receive a reply. I understand that these vehicles must be shipped from S. Korea, but are they even in the pipeline and when will they arrive here? Who knows.

When I bought my 2013 Santa Fe Sport in August 2012, my dealer told me they would be available in the summer of 2013.

10 March 2013 It does exist!!
Saw the LWB Santa Fe this afternoon at my Eugene OR dealership. Its the only LWB they have for sale. Vehicle's Iron Frost exterior and black leather interior appear to be high quality. Driver and second row (actually captain's chair) are very comfortable. Dashboard layout is similar to previous Santa Fe's. Full panoramic (moon?) roof is impressive. I did not drive the vehicle and the dealer is unsure of how many more they will be allocated or when they might arrive. MSRP on this fully equipped vehicle was $40,000.

I live in Coronado, California and saw a fleet, approximately 12,of LWB Santa Fe parked at the hotel Del Coronado. I was able to look at the cars but they were all locked up. It is suppose to be some kind of test drive for reviewers that will take place tomorrow. Getting any type of solid information at this point is impossible.
(if they told me they would have to kill me) I wish someone would put me up at the Hotel Del, wine and dine me, let me test drive and then review!
I hope to get some kind of ride tomorrow. I'll update if I do.
I currently own a 2002 with 180,000 miles and it has been flawless. I'm anxious to buy this one if it ever comes gets to the dealers.

I just got back from my dealer. They said only 1,400 are making it to the states this year with a 2-3 allotment per dealer. I don't know if that's initially or in total or how that would work. They really didn't know either - Hyundai is very tight-lipped about it.
They knew what they were getting (they are the largest dealer in North Tx with more than one place, so, they thought they'd be getting some others may not), but they didn't know colors. In 2 wks, they are planning on getting 2 limited and 1 other in - I get the first limited - hope it's worth it!

Sounds like a pretty good selling tactic by the dealer. Supply low, demand high= dealer profit.

The Santa Fe limited models (6 passenger idk why they say 6-7), have been available starting jan of 2013.
The dealer closest to me doesn't have any as they were supposed to be there last month but said its just a matter of days before they finally get to their lot.
They say its a popular model as many people are looking for them... (This I doubt as many people don't wait around very long, plus they have fully loaded sport models on their lot that suit others just fine).
I can't wait to finally get to see one as I'm car shopping/ comparing. It's between a Santa fe limited and a ford edge limited for me. ^_^

I think I talked to the same North Tx dealer and they said they will sell the LWB for MSRP only for the first year. Is this what you've heard?
