Default 2013 vs 2014 2500/3500 What is the difference?

I am thinking about ordering a 2014 2500 diesel and wondering what does the 2014 have that the 2013 doesn't. I can get a really good deal on a 2013.

I am getting a Diesel. So, the new engine isn't an interest.

Two new colors. Love the Granite Crystal and blue streak.

(I am not interested in this) Black Appearance Group (ADX) - 10/14/13

New air rear suspension option. Production: Rear Air Suspension (SEB) - 12/02/13 (production schedule date)

Seems like this air suspension option is different than what you find on the 1500.

Anything thing else NEW for 2014 2500/3500 that I am missing? THANKS.

The 3500 is the pretty much the same as it was updated last year (2013). But the 2500 now gets some of those features and more. It get the new 3 link front end, coil springs in the rear similar to the 1500 with available load leveling airbags, and a front axle disconnect which is supposed to help with MPGs. Those are the majors off the top of my head. The coils should make for a very nice ride.

There is also a new style exhaust brake on the Cummins.

If you're talking 2500, there's a lot of changes...

The '13 2500 was basically the '12 2500 with the new interior and the engine (def) change over..

From '13 to '14, the 2500, is getting the 50ksi frame, the new 3 link front suspension and the rear coil springs... Basically, it's getting what the 3500 got, but also rear coils.

The change from '13 to '14 on the 3500, isn't really anything, other than options.. Oh, almost forgot, the '14 3500 is getting tire pressure sensors... Not sure if it means warning lights, like true tpms, or just a pressure display, but it's getting them, which the '13s did not have.
