Disadvantage : you have to chose from what's still available.
The 2017 MY was also different in that it received more ZEV credits and those credits traveled to and from other Section 177 States with no penalties or discounts. ZEV credits have value (as Tesla knows very well) and GM was willing to put some cash on the hood to stockpile some credits.
It is also possible that GM is restricting supply to delay the 200K trigger for the sunset of the Federal Tax Credit.
