Ordered mine on the 16th of January or there abouts... got my order varification and the second notice that the build was scheduled. When I placed the order the sales rep did say it could take up to eight weeks for it to be delivered. I hope I don't have to wait until the middle of March!

2013 regular cab sport.

They must be e-mailing out confirmations in mass today. I got mine also. I ordered my 1500 Laramie Longhorn in black gold with hemi/8speed, air-ride, ram boxes, sunroof etc. My e-mail today said it was scheduled for production and that I should receive another e-mail from them in about a week when my vehicle is scheduled to go into production. I wasn't expecting my Ram before early May so any sooner is a bonus to me. Last time I ordered a vehicle was a Ford Ranger and it took 12 weeks.

Stopped by the dealer today, looks like the truck should arrive at the dealership about the first week of March. I got my fingers crossed!

I was at my dealer today and he said the unofficial word from their Ram rep was 23 MPG highway. The dealer sales manager didn't know but I am assuming 23 would for a 2wd. Here is my prediction for fuel economy:

2WD- 16 / 23
4WD- 15 / 22

This would make the Hemi 8 Speed one mpg better than Ford's Ecoboost on the highway, and would meet Ram's pledge to beat the Ecoboost in regards to fuel economy.

I bet the 23 is Hemi regular cab with the 8 speed though and yes 2WD...

This would be a fun game! Guess the fuel econ rating! If I were betting on it...I would say the city mpg will go up 10-15% and the highway 5% to at MOST 10% due to lighter weight of trans components and less parasitic power loss...so that puts my guesstimate at:
2WD - 16 / 21 and combined 18
4WD - 15 / 20 and combined 17

Of course that means it will actually GET about 17 combined (2wd) and 16 (4wd)...but I am thrilled about saving 5-10% on fuel per month and improved acceleration.

Guessing is fun and it's all we have until they announce. In just about every review I have read the reviewer mentions that Ram has stated the Hemi with the 8 speed will meet or beat the best in class MPG. Allpar and several reviews have stated there will be a 20% improvement in fuel economy with the Hemi 8 Speed. Anything less then best in class would be a disappointment, and I don't think Ram made these many changes to be 2nd best.
