If it does come with the eight speed and a lower ratio like I hear is the only way to get a new one now that they stopped with the six speed, it is essentially now a Sport 2x4 with the hood correct?
I know this is an old thread but I might be able to answer these questions.
1. The Ram R/T no longer even existed in my dealer's Dealer Connect. They have not gotten back in touch with me about availability. You can go and build them on Ram's website. Interesting note, the picture of the interior shows the rotary shifter.
2. IF it were to exist, the final drive would be 3.92. There is a Chrysler document floating around the 2013 Ram forum page giving a detailed list of what all is available.
I hope this clears up the mud. I want a RCSB 2WD Ram with a center console, 8.4 radio and the Alpine audio system. That just happens to be an R/T. I really want the TorqueFlite tranny, so I guess I will wait.
