Of course if you ordered the HEMI with the 8 speed, they won't have started production yet. They are suppose to start production of that combination in March.

By the way, which radio did you order ?? the Conti RA1, RA2, or Harman Kardon RA3, or RA4
I sure hope it was one of the HK radios, the RA4 has HD technology & Navigation
You will also have to order a REMOTE CD/DVD player, sales code RH1.
the cd players are all remotely mounted with the 2013 Rams


Just a heads up:
If you can, modify your order to include the RA4 radio & RH1 CD/DVD player, if they are not on your list already.
Chrysler has said that none of their 2013 radios will be interchangeable, due to the new electronics

RA1 has a little 3" screen & NO Bluetooth
RA2 has a 5" screen with Bluetooth, may not be available in Rams
RA3 has the 8.4" with almost everything but Navigation, you can get Nav with another $595 add on
RA4 has the 8.4" screen, comes with everything now available, for $95 less than the RA3 with Nav

What's the deal with the CD player? I don't know if it was you or someone else, but they were pushing the CD player also. I ordered the RA4, but not the CD player. I felt the access to use it was going to be a pain and being that I'm getting the bench seats, I understand I have to access the lower storage to get to it. What makes the CD player worth getting? I heard that it might play DVDs on the RA3/4 screen. If that's true, I might update my order for it since I wasn't able to order the Rear seat entertainment for the kids...

So other then possibly not being able to add it later, why should I order the CD player?

I think he is just making sure that people understand that the CD player is an option now. Its been awhile since it was more than a second thought if a new vehicle has a CD player.

Usually just a few business days on this...
Then wait about 3 weeks for scheduling...then about 5 more before truck ships...which takes about 1-2 weeks to get to dealership via rail. Pretty long process.

Thank you for your email.
Please be advised, as your vehicle was ordered through the Canadian
retail market you will not be able to utilize our Vehicle Order Tracking
System (VOTS), for the production progress of your new vehicle. At this
time, the Canadian retail market is not part of our Vehicle Order
Tracking System.
We would strongly recommend, for updates regarding the production
progress of your new vehicle, that you keep in contact with your selling
dealership or contact Chrysler Canada directly at the following:
Phone: 1-800-465-2001
Hours of Operation: Monday through Friday, from 8:00AM until 8:00PM EST
and Saturday 9:00 AM until 5:00 PM EST
You are always welcome to reply back to this email and we will respond
back to you as promptly as we can. If you prefer, you can also call us
directly with your questions at the Ram Product Information Center by
calling 1-800-964-0600.
Congratulations on the order of your new vehicle. Have a great
weekend.

Sincerely,
Ram Product Information Center
Their (and Mexico...) ordering systems are segregated from the US ones. VOTS talks to the US system but not the others.

My 2013 RAM Outdoorsman has been on order since the end of February. I'm still waiting... a week ago I got a confirmation that it was being shipped by train from Michigan to Montréal. It will be a 2014 and I got the VIN number. Anyone knows how long it takes for the train and then delivery to dealer in Gatineau Quebec?

Depending when your truck is loaded and transported to dealer, you could be looking at two weeks....With that being said, my buddies only took a week....Please let us know how you make out....

Thanks for your response. You are right on the button. My V6 Monotone Deep Cherry Red Outdoorsman arrived last Friday. Wow what a beautiful truck. The Beige and Brown interior is outstanding. It's got the works, air supension, Rambox, etc. The dealer has to install: Hard tonneau cover, chrome gas cap, mud guards, GPS programming, Hooker front speakers upgrade (did not install subwoofer, I like secure storage Under seat). Dealer ordered 20 inches Wheels, however it came with passengers tires. Dealer accepted to switch the wheels for 17 inches LT. These are much better for winter driving and no need to change tires in winter (compulsory winter tires in Québec, LT tires are exempted). I am taking delivery Tuesday 17 September. I will let you know my first impressions. By the way it came in as a 2014 instead of a 2013, and because of the delay I was given the Chrysler employee rebate. Great gesture I am a happy camper.
