BigHornCAP is on a distinguished road
Default What to Do? take a 2013 or wait for 2014

As a lot of you have been following along with my ordeal in ordering my beloved 2013 BigHorn.

We have now reached a crossroad.

As of today 118 days (one day shy of 17week) the truck still cannot be confirmed that it will ship this week.

the Chrysler Rep has acknowledged this situation is unusual.

So he has offered me the following
1) Keep my 2013 Ram, with a additional $1200 concession, truck "should" ship in 2 days.

2) Take the full 2013 concessions (including the $1200) and 2013 Price protection, and post an order for a 2014 Ram.
Production in July, Delivery September.

no rental in either case, but my dealer rep says they could hook me up with a deal.

the only thing holding me back from the 2014 is the fact that i waited this long, and now i am without a truck for at least another 4 months.


Any thoughts folks!

Spend summer with new truck or wait till September to spend winter with new truck.

I would add to the summer deal that if there is an issue with the truck, they lone you another truck till yours is fixed. For as long as it takes to fix it, and something in the same level. JMO

If I could get the 2013 incentives and price protection on a 2014, I would try to wait if you can make it. The 2014 will always be worth a little bit more on resale, just because of the model year.

I'm leaning that way as well.

not having a truck through the summer is going to be hard, camping and what-not.

but, after waiting this long, i might as well get everything i wanted in the first place.

I hear 2014s have front and rear parksense sensors. That alone would make waiting more tempting. If they can give you something to drive then what's another 4 months! Lol. You've waited over 4 months already and at this point I would be worried that something is wrong with the 13 if its been that long and they still can't confirm shipment.

I would probably wait on the 2014 at this point. Better resale is there if that is important to you.

i agree with this IF there is something new on the 2014 you would want. if not i would take the 2013 and enjoy the truck.

I'm trying to find out if there is anything new, no luck so far.

not doing the diesel, just want my hemi, 8-speed, long box, rambox beauty.

front park sensors sound interesting, but i didn't want the rear ones so, meh!

hoping for better fabrics, or interior set-up, and maybe better 8.4an software.
or like in past years, standard styling of the laramies trickling down to the bighorns.

i'd wait for the 2014, hopefully dodge will have fixed the 8.4 screen issues, the 30 gallon tank issues and just what every bugs the 2013 might get that we dont know about.
