I don't know.. I haven't test drove the HFE Ram but I have driven an ECO Malibu and it had start stop.. it was very fast. I wasn't able to catch it unless I REALLY tried and even then it was quick to respond.
Start/Stop was supposed to be on any Hemi/8-Speed Ram but I think they kept it just to the HFE model because they wanted just one to get 25MPG for advertisement purposes and it really didn't save that much on any of the other trucks.
I doubt it will become very big once the Ecodiesel lands.
