    Although my 2012 is going strong at 106k I’ve got the urge to move up. The HUD is quite a goal as I will need to check off all the packages to get there. So be it.

    Any thoughts on how I can acquire a Prius Prime AWD with HUD before my grandchild has a grandchild.

    big thanks

    AWD Prime? Not sure that exists.

    Maybe better to wait for the Gen5 Prius (and Prius Prime). Even if you get on the waiting list now, chances are that you won't get it before the Gen5 is released.

    No AWD on the Prime but it is available on the regular Prius LE and XLE. I don't believe they offer an AWD in Limited trim but some of the packages should still have HUD.

    The northeast US tends to get plenty of AWD priuses and Primes. They're both hard to find right now. You may need to cast a very wide net and get on waitlists with a few dealerships. I don't think I've seen a single Limited trim Prime come though either of the closest dealerships to me and I've checked in on them since just summer. Even after I got my 22 Prime last fall I've been seeing if they have any reasonably priced Tundras (they haven't. And one dealer now has a $750 markup on every new car). They usually get 1 or 2 Primes every month or 2 but only seen LE and XLE

    As stated, no AWD on the Prime. The rear motor on the Prius is less than 8hp. It'll help on starts and low speeds, but it is far from other AWDs in capabilities.

    HUD is on the Limited Prius and Prime. If you want an AWD Prius and HUD, you'll need the XLE with a package.

    The only Prime AWD is the RAV4, but it's going to be sticky. The HUD is available as part of the Premium Package and only available on the XSE trim. You are looking at $50,000+ and good luck finding a dealer without a markup. That being said most of the local dealers have only the $50,000+ trim for sale as the SE trim are taken before they show up. If you are going to be spending that much money you might be in the range of a Lexus NX 450h+ if any are available.

    best thing is to email all the dealers your willing to do business with. make sure it is in stock, and put a deposit over the phone.
    ny seems to be one of the better areas to find one in stock.

    all the best!
