Default 2014 ram 1500 instead of 2013

Since there have been so many delays with the 8-speed ram (on ordering), I'm starting to consider the 2014. Any ideas when orders will start? Seems like previously, they were looking at mid-June.

If I'm not mistaken, June or July. I would wait for the 2014, indeed.

Default 2014 Ram 1500

I just got a call from Crystal at Ram and she called my dealer who said that we cannot order the 1500 R/T with the eight-speed now because they are not building an R/T with the eight-speed. We ordered the truck February 6 and this is all we know so far. Maybe they are going to call all of the 5.7 Hemi with the ZF a 2014 and hopefully build them soon but i don't know.

Donlen shows the following dates.

2013 final orders due - 4/30
2014 initial order acceptance - 6/5
2014 production starts - 7/22, 7/1 for regular cabs

I'm thinking hard about canceling my 13 and waiting for a 14. The thought of only enjoying a 13 for a month or two before wishing I had waited for a 14 scares me. What a sham to be truck of the year when they can't even deliver the features that earned them that award.

The only thing that has been announced for the 2014 is the new diesel engine. The early version of the 2013 owner's manual that was uploaded to the Ram website had references to adaptive cruise control, collision warning, blind spot alert, and steering directed headlights. There's a good chance those things will return for the 2014 model year. Then again maybe they decide that their plate is full enough just trying to deliver on the 2013 promises without piling on more.

There's always hope but I don't think it's very likely that you'll see your truck in April. I ordered that same configuration 2 months ago and my dealer is telling me it won't even be built until May.

many automotive companies do a mid year change usually with a upgrade to something other then the Body style

Dodge build year is from July to June,
this year was a bit different, it didn't start until September, but it should still stop production sometime in June

So a mid year vehicle would be starting production in January, therefore it will be a 2013.5 Ram & whenever you go to buy a part for a 2013 Ram, the owner will be asked if it was produced before or after January **, 2013

Ordering a factory 2013 now, to me would be foolish
Besides that many special order Rams are being cancelled & those fully loaded Rams will still go to the dealership that originally placed the order & it may be just the Ram that you want. Labor Sales & rebates will be applied in September

I think that i would Factory order a 2014 & get all the goodies that i would want & have bragging rights to go with it

Does anyone know if the 3.0 diesel will be available on the Laramie for 2014? Or will it be like the new V6 and only be available on the SLT or lower?

As a guaranteed diesel 1500 purchaser, I asked lots of questions to all the right people
With little activity in the RAM area as nothing was released in regards to RAM, all the big bosses were there, and I had a chance to ask some important questions

Here's what I asked and the answers:

2013 Laramie Limited - might be late 2013 build - but most likely early 2014
Diesel availability - third quarter 2013 - October expected
- lots of demand for 1500 diesel
- will come in most available truck models - prob not express and W/T
- all options should be available - Laramie limited, air suspension, 6'4" box, etc
all options should be available...
