Nope, won't be pulling the trigger on a new Ram until 2016. I need to hold onto Big Red for at least 5 years.

I am on the same boat, I got my 2012 and I am very happy with it. I need to hold to it for another 5 years at least too.

no, but some of the new features are tempting. Torqueflite 8sp and updated gauge cluster in particular.

No, but maybe a 2014, 2015,lol Let some bugs get worked out. I love most all the new features, should put the RAM further ahead of the competition,IMO.

Yup! I like my 2011, but it is lacking a lot of options I would have liked to have because of financing issues at the time I purchased it. Won't have those problems this time around, so I can get the truck I really want!

Nope. Just got my '12 two weeks ago.

The only feature on the '13 that I think is notable for me is the multiple ride height/air bag deal......It would be nice to be abelto have extra ground clearance off road and then hit a switch and drop back down for the highway.

The rest of the new features dont matter much to me......and the looks are exactly the same.

Moreover, some of the other new technology, like the stop and start deal, I eye with a bit of skepticism.....first, from the reliability side --- if the engine stops and instantly starts every time you come to a red light or in traffic, for someone commuting that could be 100 or more stops/starts....maybe I just dont understand the technology (I dont) but I want to control when the engine runs or doesnt...seems like that could be a major vulnerability as the truck ages. But more importantly (LOL) I like sitting at a light hearing the engine idle.....its part of the driving experience. If I wanted to drive a golf cart I would buy one....LOL
