My wife wanted an '18 HH in White with the Saddle leather and it couldn't be found anywhere.
Toyota makes a crazy high percentage of XLE versions because they sell the most of these. They also only ship certain color combinations to different regions of the country based on demand. To add to this, color combinations are produced in batches. I also learned that the dealer really doesn't know what color/model combinations are going to be made too far out; they are guaranteed a certain allocation of vehicles of a certain trim.
We had our dealers search high & low; find a dealer who's willing to do a dealer trade with another dealer a reasonable distance away. Rather than wait months, we did a dealer trade for an '18 HH in Grey with Grey interior.
So, depending upon what you are waiting for, this doesn't seem unreasonable from the factory - I would have the dealer do a search if you haven't, and if they won't, find one that will.
