When I bought my 2011, I intentionally got a bare-bones SLT just to be sure I liked the truck. Well, I love it, so my next one will be a loaded Sport (assuming they don't change the trim levels). I'm going to have to study up on this "start-stop" thing though...if that's standard and can't be turned off (surely they wouldn't do that), I'll never buy one.

Nope. Way too many electrical gremlins lurking in the mist. I could probably be persuaded if the bugs worked out pretty well before the 2015 models hit the ground though.

Nope. Knowing I'll be keeping this truck for 10+ it's a given that shiney new models will be coming out a few times that they will try to tempt me with. I LOVE my 12' and will for a long time

I'm going to keep my third gen and wait until the fifth gen is released. The fourth just doesn't wow me.

Nope! I'm happy with my 2011 and can't wait to do some mod's to it. If I really wanted the 2013 I could blow a butt load of money on that fancy new touchscreen, but then again what for?

Personally I don't know what to thing of the new dash outlay, the materials look good but the new gauges and info screen have to grow on me. And just like everybody says, let them fix the bugs first and they need to get rid of the gear knob.... I mean it is a truck, not a luxury sedan. What really jumps out for me is the new suspension with the ride hight adjustment, I really want to have that! But for now i'll stick to my 2010 RCSB HEMI, it runs strong and is good looking

I'll see the 2500 Mega cabs(gasser) and then make my decision. My 1500 is seven months old. One great rig so far.

I don't like the EVIC display, my '09 EVIC is good enough
Rotary shifter just isn't me
All those switches in the center console would be a hassle, that area is way too complicated
Electrically controlled steering could become a major issue, how would you steer if you had a power loss

I see the center console with bucket seats becoming a instant MOD zone, that will be a huge empty space, a small electric motor that pushes your laptop up to a usable position, with a pivot type swivel on it, for all the time that i am on standby at a job site
or a good spot to put a cooler for a sandwich & soft drinks, instead of having it on the floor on the passenger side
