Delivery - Loaded Laramie Copperhead Two-Tone, 8-Spd, Air Susp

As I mentioned in another thread my 1/11/13 order finally arrived (after a CF of communications over the past three weeks as to exactly where the truck was and why Benecia terminal wouldn't put it on a car carrier) at the dealer yesterday (3/27/13) and the salesman delivered it to my house per my request.

So far, only sat in it, updated the UConnect (https://rsur.extra.chrysler.com/rsur/Uconnect.do), and drove it around the block at 20 mph.

My perspective is coming out of a '11 Cayenne Turbo, and this is the first US "nameplate" I've bought in 25 years, so you understand what I'm basing my comments on.

More comments later but initial comments are:
  • The paint color and quality is really good! The pearlescent/metalflake look is frankly stunning in the sun. It is really sparkly...lol.
  • The Copperhead Two-Tone is beautiful. I was worried (ugly copper color like the GM pickups), but it is just a gorgeous color in person.
  • I'm a no-nonsense guy, not into chrome at all. The chrome on this looks great. I really like it.
  • The interior surfaces are hard, this is a truck, no doubt.
  • The interior color I chose, the Canyon Brown/Light Frost Beige, looks great. The contrasting colors of the various pieces look great.
  • The UConnect (mine is 8.4AN) looks to be really well thought out and has some really cool features.
  • Seats are comfy, love the buckets.
  • The OE tri-fold bed cover seems at first glance to be flimsy, but maybe the material is very tough? Time will tell.
  • Storage compartments all over the place. Tons of freakin storage. If you can't put all your crap in here with half the room to spare, you are a hoarder, go get professional help.
  • The air suspension is exactly like what is on my $$$ Cayenne.
  • The 8-speed transmission is exactly like what is on my $$$ Cayenne.
  • The wheels are funky, as other have mentioned, the "chrome" is some kind of plastic cover. If you tap on it, it moves around and sounds plasticky. I'm afraid to look at what is underneath.
  • I regret not spec'ing the Remote Start, would be perfect for summer A/C precool. Don't know what I was thinking. Argh!
Overall, I'm impressed and like it a lot. I'm going to debadge it as much as possible today and install the Bedrug Bedmat liner.

Some pics below and I'll post some more later.

Nice looking truck, the remote start can be added.

Beautiful truck, congrats, the wait is over!

Congrats!

Oh, I'm sure you just forgot to mention how it's also faster than your Cayenne Turbo :)

Great looking truck, nice post/pictures. From looking at your window sticker, it appears you received a German 8 speed transmission. Congrats!

Great looking truck

Gaw your truck is similar to what I wanted to get. I just wanted Rambox and the Sunroof on top of what you have.

Very jealous! :smileup:

Very nice! I didn't realize you could get the convenience group without remote start... Guess I should check my order!
