That's what we thought, too. Not surprised the other 2 dealerships are part of the same auto group (18 or so dealerships).

Interesting. I never worked for a Chrysler dealership, but at Nissan, when you commit to buy, you get the current rebate. Even if you never set foot into F&I. I would think this is standard across the industry.

I've been told that they can lock in a rebate once they have a VIN number.

Yeah, here in Arizona they've been $2250 since I ordered on 1/29. There is the $1750 national and $500 West Coast cash incentive. I'm hoping they go up a little more since Big Horns had better rebates in February and now for March Express Rams get the bigger rebates. I would have though the higher trim packages would get the best rebates. They are already making a fortune off of me.

I'm also still trying to get the $500 coupon from the brochure. They just keep sending me e-mails with the same info. This time I used my mother's mailing address and my dog's e-mail address so hopefully they won't tie in to me in any way and see I already have a Ram on order.

That's exactly what the other two dealers stated to us regarding the rebates.

Check your rebates again. I don't know about the West Coast cash but the national rebate went from $1750 to $2250 for Longhorns this month. I don't know why Longhorns don't have the bigger rebates, there's a big profit margin in those trucks.

I would imagine like most things rebates or sales are dictated by having too many of something and wanting to sell them to make room for others. I suspect there aren't enough longhorns on dealer lots that warrant increased rebates and/or they are selling most of the Longhorns they are making and don't need increased incentives. I wish they had a overstock problem of Laramie CC 4x4 so they would increase that incentive.

Maybe the rebates are better at the dealer than they are on Ram's web site. It wouldn't be the first thing on Ram's site that was wrong. When I price out my Ram it shows the final price with West 2013 Bonus Cash WECDA -500 and West BC Retail Consumer Cash 70CD1 -1750. Those have been in effect since I placed my order in January. The incentives page does list the Longhorn Crew Cab (& all other Crew Cabs) with up to $2250 in rebates. I think it is just the combination of these two rebates. I did finally get my brochure from Ram today (actually received two of them). Unfortunately neither had a $500 off coupon

Thumbs down 8-speed orders? Not anytime soon...

With all the cars/trucks that are being outfitted with the ZF 8 speed, I don't think Ram trucks will be open for orders anytime soon. I email a list of dealers every few weeks and no updates to report.

I just got a report from my local dealer in Ontario, CA that the 8-speed AND the 4-corner air suspension are on restriction.

Looks like I'm stuck ordering a 2014 minus all those great rebates. Sucks.
