Nice upgrade on the dash and suspension adjust, but not a fan of the transmission selector knob. Dodge should bring the SRT back.

SRT is it's own brand now, the SRT Viper is the first car being released by them. If there is going to be a SRT (392 6.4 at least I would like to hope) than it would be up to the SRT group to support the Ram platform. But I still hope for it after they previewed the SilverSurfer concept.

I am glad to see they are continuing to invest into the Ram brand and stay on top of the game, pressing forward to improve every place they can. The new changes are great. Though I have mixed feelings about the look of the projector headlamps, I'm not worried because the quad beams that are offered on the 2012 are standard on the 2013. So you do not have to have the new look headlamps unless you want the upgrade. The new center dash looks busier than my current truck, but maybe that is just because of the dual control climate on that laramie shown at the show. The SLT models may be simpler and a bit less going on there. I'm sure they will be great when they roll out being similar to the current in looks, yet taking it up a notch in ride, efficiency, power, etc. I'm curious whether the coil springs will be standard with the air suspension as optional. I can't see them coming with the air suspension on a stock ST,SLT model.

Talk about a lot of electrical stuff to go wrong! Also, seams like it would be a waste if your going to lift your truck???

I think the new changes are sweet. The new head lamps are gonna be 100x better than the quads on my 12. I just acquired a 30ft travel trailer so the new air ride suspension is looking like a great improvemnet. I had the air ride self leveling stuff on my Escalade and it was awesome.

The interior is of no real concern because I dont have interest in a top of the line Laramie.

I wish I would have waited now for the 13 model but I love my 12 so I'm good with it.

I like the air ride and hight adjust as well as the new dash and console. I have always been a fan of the dual climate control. Good for the wife and I. she is ALWAYS cold!!!! But just like everybody else I am notso sure about the rotary gear selector?!?! Seems like a bad idea to me but thats the direction things are going in now......... way too sophisticated to be able to fix/work on yourself.

I should have waited... thought I worry about the long term use of the air ride suspension and traditional lifts.

You can tell they have efficiency in mind. I am interested to see what real world MPG's are with this 8-speed. The 300C is getting 31mpg so I am sure this will be getting in range.
