They are late availability. No showrooms until early next year.
Orders should open in the 4th quarter of this year.

Just seems like a bad bad way to stumble out of the gate and shoot yourself in the foot. Especially with the hype of this new engine.
The Jeep GC has been out for several months offering the diesel as an option, but in all my inventory searches I have yet to find one. I guess when Fiat says available now, now means a year from now.

the original planned BUILD START UP DATE is still August 22nd 2013
then add at least 8 weeks to that
someone MAY see a 3.0 diesel RAM 1500 by October 22nd
my bet is on January 1 2014

If that's the case then when do orders start? Shouldn't they have started already if production starts August 22?

What part of "you can't order a Diesel GC in the USA" is hard to understand? There are none on the lots here because you can't even order one yet.

So only diesel GC/1500 in USA now are the ones they let the media test?

He's right GC Diesel Shipping starts Friday,now u could order 2-3 months ago. Ram will begin pre-orders Mid Oct i would think. They like to build 20k Units before they release the vehicle atleast that is what they did with the Dart. Time will tell, i got nothing but time Fiat!

Yes, that is correct. GC diesel ordering starts Friday in the USA, not months ago. Ram diesel ordering is later in the year.
