Not digging the new ones myself. I think I will save my money, pay off what I got.

I am still waiting to see if the 2013 Ram comes out with the 8 speed, we can only hope they do make that change soon
it doesn't look like there will be a body style change

In fact the pictures that i have seen, looks so much like the spy photos that i saw a year ago of the 2012, that i wonder if someone is playing a trick on us

Have heard from two different chysler reps now that the 2013's will have only minor interior and exterior changes. Same powertrain and suspension as this year. Looks like im gonna be dissapointed. I still have a little bit of hope that maybe the 1500s will at least get a true 6 speed, but im not too optimistic at this point.

I'd be interested in a Ram Daily. I realize I could use a van more than my pickup right now.

Default 2013 8 speed trans

I am reading about the 2013 online. PUTC are reporting that Automotive news is reporting that an SEC filing revealed that the pentastar 6 and an 8 spd trans is in the mix for the 2013 Ram 1500. I thought that was already a given. It is not clear (to me anyway) if they are pairing the 8 speed only with the v6 pentastar. That would be the similar to the Grand Cherokee and Durango drivetrains. The claim is a 12% improvment in mileage. To me that sounds like a comparison between the outgoing v6 and the new pentastar+8 speed. I can't imagine 12% better mileage on the 5.7 by adding 2 more cogs. But it would sure be nice. Seems to be that even Ram folks were not quite up to speed on this yet. At least not the ones polled in the article. Anybody care to fill me in? Before my 2012 shows up!

Ok,I would get the Long-Hauler "Concept" and a 43 ft. toy hauler fill it with a PowerWagon,Razr UTV,and a Mini Cooper. Then hit the road looking for the next great time in my life.
Pinch me and wake me up- - I was dreaming.

I saw on the news this week
Dodge is going to show off the ELECTRIC RAM very soon
It is called the PHEV
http://www.5min.com/Video/2012-Ram-1...ruck-517173132

They are coming out with The Ram HD CNG is powered by the 5.7-liter HEMI® V-8 and features both compressed gas storage tanks and an 8-gallon gasoline fuel tank. Canadian customers can opt for a 35-gallon gasoline tank.



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
