Dealer just called..
 
The 2013 Ram R/T is now available to order with the 8 Speed!!!! Copperhead Pearl is on restriction though. I will find out about rear end ratio in a bit.

Good color choice! I imagine that the rear end ratio should be 4.10. I could be wrong but that is what they ran on the past R/T models. They also use a higher stall torque converter for performance.

Yeah but I think the 8 speed threw the TC and 4.10s out the window. Will find out later today. Copperhead Pearl can not be ordered as of yet.

Good point. Maybe no torque converted but because it is an R/T I would expect at least 4.10s. Looking forward to what you find out.

Bad news. It shows up on dealer connect but he was not able to order it. I guess I will wait for a 2014. It DOES have 4.10s, at least the specs still shows it being 4.10s.

Lol ive said 100 times on here the r/t's will not get the 8 speed sticking with the 5/6 speed so they can keep the shifter now the sport should have the 8 speed so thats an option

It appeared on his Dealer Connect today but it would not let him process the order. I would like to know how you know that it won't get the 8 speed. Maybe it won't for '13 but def. will for '14.
