I am waiting myself, not for the 6 speed, but the 8 speed that will be in them about a full year from now

It won't be a chrysler transmission, it will be a ZF german transmission, made in Chryslers new transmission plants

I think that you should make the very best deal that you can right now
get a HEMI, get a 3.92 rear axle ratio with LSD, don't let them sell you a 3.21 or 3.55

make sure that the radio has all the goodies that you want
they are trying to sell radios that have all the capabilities, but none of them actually do much of anything without serious upgrades & the upgrades cost major $$$$$
Make them show you that the BLUETOOTH WORKS !!
same with the Navigation if that is something that you want


One last thing, if your dealer has an INTERNET/FLEET sales person, deal through them, they don't have to sell you a vehicle off of their lot, they can have one brought in for you from just about any where

if you can swing it, get a class 4 hitch receiver & a electric brake controller, you MAY or may not need it, but it is nice to have
Get a backup camera from Dodge as well as everything else as part of the deal

dual exhaust is always nice to have
