I'll be in line for a regular cab Sport, unless problems surface with this new model. I just bought my Ram in September of 2011, and I'll be ordering as late in the 2013 model year as possible...maybe June, 2013? Damn, the wife is going to be pissed.

Not crazy about the air suspension or the console redesign. Loving the 8 speed and Hemi combo tho

I'm liking it!

I just hope that I don't end up buying yet another new truck. LOL I had thought that I finally found the one that I wanted

From the spy photos from a few months ago I thought I would hate the front end/fog light combo, but I actually think it looks better than the 09-12's. So glad I waited. This will be the truck I order. Now just have to wait to see how they are packaged (will certain items only be on Laramie's, Longhorn, etc. ?) Can't wait to test drive one of these.

If I got a truck I was fairly set on the 2012, now they are changing it for 2013? Wait for it?

New eight-speed also available with the 5.7-liter V-8 HEMI the Company's first application
with a V-8 (TorqueFlite 8 late availability)

New TorqueFlite 8 operated by an innovative dash-mounted, rotary e-shift design
First-in-segment Fuel Saving Technology: eight-speed automatic transmission, stop-start,
thermal management system, pulse-width modulation and active aerodynamics, including grille
shutters and air suspension

Class-exclusive air suspension enhances fuel economy, improves ride control and off-road
capability along with improved ingress/egress and loading, and features a
automatic load leveling
I first saw this post and wondered if I goofed by buying the 12 a couple weeks ago.,....

But I dunno guys.....SO MUCH new "technology" to break. LOL

Seems like the 8 speed tranny is late availability....plus, it is being done with a goal towards (even better) fuel economy versus the 6 speed we have. Cant see how the complaints of bad ratios etc will be cured by adding yet another two speeds.

The looks appear to be just barely different, to me.

I think I would give this new stuff at least a couple years to suss out the issues. For instance, stop and start is relatively new to the entire car industry and applying it to a pickup truck is really new (isnt it?).....and the "active aerodynamics" stuff......geez.......talk about stuff to worry about breaking when the truck gets older.....

I guess I am old fashioned....LOL
