Default ST Express EVIC

I bought a 2012 reg cab ST Express last August that came with the Hemi, 20" wheels, power windows/door locks, usb-type "key", and fog lamps. But mine didn't come with the full EVIC display. That part of my instrument panel is just blank. The little display I have just is basically an odometer/trip meter that also show ECO mode and outside temp. All the others Rams Ive seen have the full EVIC display. Did I get a weird trim package or what?

I have the SXT which is essentially an ST with an appearance package and my truck has the same thing as yours. I definitely wish it came with the full EVIC though. It seems kind of stupid that they didn't put it in. It has the space in the cluster and steering wheel for it....

I'm thinking you just didnt get the EVIC option.

Do you have Chrome rings around your speedometer, tachometer and other gauges?
Do you have the buttons on the left side of the front of the steering wheel to control the EVIC?

When I bought mine, I noticed the Express without the EVIC didnt have the above mentioned and mine does with the EVIC.

The standard dash does come with the said screen you state you have.

With the Express, if you didn't get the "trailer brake control group" option it will not have the EVIC. My dealer alerted me on this one. I saw the option in the brochure, but had no desire for it as I would not be doing any towing, but he said "No TBCG, and no EVIC" For the $300 I said Yes.

That explains why my 2500 has it, it came with a brake controller.

my express is the same way. i have the little screen for temp, odometer, trip a, trip b and total trip. also eco mode on/off. i have the chrome rings around my odometer, but not all the other fancy stuff...however it will say if i have a low tire or windshield wiper fluid is out, etc.
