I live in SE Michigan and see around 12-20 eco-diesel Ram's each week in my home town, all MFG plated. It looks like they are trying to pile on the test miles right now. I'm very surprised how quiet they are, very little diesel sound at idle or during acceleration.

(I don't have pics either...)

Sounds plausible. Test runs happen all the time around SE Michigan to get calibration feedback and shake out the bugs. Usually 2-5 vehicles in a caravan doing the speed limit with their lights on in the right hand lane with the M plate. I saw the Cherokee out on a run yesterday. It looks positively evil at night with the light setup it has.

No way I'd trust him... He came on to a different forum and gave some BS about the order delays. When people pointed out the fallacy in his statement, he disappeared and never answered a thing....

Just remember, he's a marketing guy... he's there to make things look rosy and create hype about products...

Never thought to take pictures, don't really care if you believe it or not to be honest. Not sure why anyone would make something like that up, I've been seeing the Ram 1500 diesel for about 6 months. It's certainly not some top secret truck . Saw (2) more today, burgundy and blue, both crew cab 6 1/2' box 4x4 Eco Diesel right on the side, BELIEVE IT OR NOT

Some salesman are just lazy.. In a case like yours, I'd go into a dealer and ask the sales rep to try and build one, in front of you, to see if it can be ordered...

BTW, at my dealer, I found out that some of the sales reps have no idea how to even get into dealerconnect to build...

True, I'm not planning on purchasing till next year anyway, Who wants to drive a new Vehicle through winter right away.

As far as the dealers go, doesn't surprise me, not sure if this guy was lazy or not, he took my message and actually called back which was a surprise in it self. Guess we truly won't know until Ram releases a official notice or when there able to built on Configuration.
