Default Ambient lighting in the 2013s?

Curious if any of the higher trim 2013 models have interior ambient lighting similar to what Ford offers? I thought I saw an interior pic of a 2013 Laramie that looked like it had some sort of lighting in the interior door handle cavity, but I couldn't tell for sure, and I can't seem to find it listed anywhere. I'm going to head down to a dealer shortly to check out the 2013s, but thought I'd pose the question here too.

I have an 2009 QC SLT
There is a light in the overhead console, they call it an ASH TRAY light, it is controlled by the Rheostat switch that also controls the light brightness on the instrument panel
There is also another light that i just recently noticed, it is located near the bottom center of the dashboard. Both of these are on at night while you are driving.

When you are not driving & open the door(s), the whole cab is lit up by interior lights & the lights in the outside mirrors, called Puddle Lamps

Thank you. I should have been a little more specific. Ford has ambient (mood) lighting where you can change it to 7 different colors. The light illuminate the front footwells, cupholder (ring), and rear footwells. In 2013, the lighting is controlled through the My Ford Touch interface.

I just came back from my local Ram dealer, impressed overall with the 2013 Rams, though stock was limited. The Laramie appears to have some blue lights in the interior door handle cavities, but nothing more than that from what I can tell. The additional ambient lighting is a nice classy touch, wish Ram offered something similar.

I test drove a '13 FX4 before I got my Ram and I will say the lighting was a sweet feature. I bet Ram will have some form of amb. lighting by '14

The 2013 Ram do have LED lights throughout...at least the Laramie does. Foot wells, door handles, the little storage areas on the doors, the back seats when you lift them up, underneath the driver/passenger seats as well.

The Laramie has blue LED's and blue back lighting instead of the usual green. I think it is a pretty well done interior coming from the factory.

I guess I'll have to check one out at night. I could see the blue lenses in the door handles, but didn't know where else to look. Ford has a cupholder ring which looks pretty sweet. The Ram interior is now the envy of the truck segment in my opinion, a little more work with ambient lighting would really set it a part.
