The multi speed A/C compressor comes from Mercedes who has developed the technology a number of years ago to promote energy savings.

Note: High end home and commercial A/C compressors use multi speed technology to match output with load to achieve energy conservation and reduce noise of operation.

Yes, and the press release explained that this new multi speed compressor can yield up to a 0.4% increase in fuel economy.


BTW, I was shocked to see the options on the 2014 Limited rear limited to only the 3.21 or the 3.92. For 2013, the 3.55 was the only offering in a Limited.

Also, Trailer Tow Mirrors were not available as an option on the 2013 Limited when I ordered, but were available on my 2014 Limited order. I still did not choose them, as I love the power folding feature of the standard mirrors.

You can now get cooled seats with a front bench seat on the laramie trucks.

I must say that the ventilated seat is my new "don't ever want to live without it" feature. I'm forever spoiled....

I plan to order a 2014 Ram Limited and would like to know of any cosmetic differences between the 2013 Limited (which I have seen) and the 2014 Limited. I am talking wheels, grill insert, interior trim, etc.

Good question. All I know of is the now painted park assist sensors on the rear bumper. 2013 had unfinished black sensors. They didnt bother me in the least, but some other members were bothered by this.

It seems that the rear view camera is finally standard.

I got 3.55 on my 2014 Outdoorsman. Couldn't get the 3.92's, standard on the 2013 though.

This is not true, at least not on all trim levels. It was an option for my SLT but at the time I ordered the dealer couldn't select it. I think the parts weren't available at the time or something along those lines. It is definitely not on my build sheet.
