Between what the sales manager at my local dealer was emailed, and another link posted from a member on another forum showed, the last day to order a 2012 is 5/31/12 with a final production date of 8/31/12 to 9/07/12. 2013 production startup is listed as 9/04/12 to 9/10/12. I take that as meaning the 2013's won't be built until Sept and delivery until Oct. It sucks cuz I am trying to wait it out to buy a 2013, but they keep making it harder for me... lol! Hopefully they have bad info or RAM will change their production date by a month or two like normal.

I gotta say that the thing I drooled over most on those links was the Dodge Magnum revival possibilities. Wife and I both loved our 05 Magnum, put 120k on it without any problems other than reg maint. I have to say if they based it on the original (colaberation between Daimler Chrysler and Mercedes Benz) they could count us in for a new one. I would have to research it a great deal before purchasing one if not. ......Wife would be one happy chick....

Hell, they better hurry, they stop making the 2012 Rams in late June
The 2013 Ram starts being built about July 9th
sometime in August, they should be in the showroom or at least in hiding on the back dealership lot, my dealership doesn't like to show off the new vehicles until after the Labor Day sales, so they keep them slightly hidden behind the building, the salesmen try to distract you from going back there, but they don't exactly stop you
Last summer there was a fleet of 2-3 of the phev trucks that would come through our small town every once and a while, booth times i seen them they were parked at our kfc/taco bell

There was another photo shoot of the 2013 Ram, they call it a spy shot, but several photographers were there

It shows a slight change in the front fenders & grille
the headlights don't seem to fit quite right, rumors about a headlight change are mentioned
the lower front fascia is a bit different on the Sport models, there seems to be only 2 holes either for air or tow hooks, but maybe it is the same as the older models & the camouflage is covering up most of the plastic.
The Fog Lights are more Vertical than Horizontal
