Default Stopped by Dodge dealer today....

Since I was passing by, I stopped by the Dodge dealer today. Sitting in the front line was a new 2013 Laramie Limited in solid black. I am looking to get an understated black Limited.

I have seen many photographs of the Limited but the truck I saw today was not like any of Limited depicted in the Dodge photos. The theme of the Limited is to be understated and Dodge has removed all badging. They put a unique straight horizontal bladed grill in, and special wheels. The Limited I saw had Hemi badges on it, had the standard Laramie cross hatch chrome grille, and had a busy chrome wheel design that was nothing like the 5 spoke wheels depicted in Dodge photos. Actually, it looked like a Longhorn with a Limited solid black leather interior with grey piping on the seats. It did not have air suspension or the Ram Storage boxes.

I am disconcerted by seeing this variation on the Limited model. If my truck comes in like this one, I will refuse it. While nice, it is not the 'Limited' as shown in most Dodge photos.

Top photo is exactly what I saw at the dealer. Below, is a photo of what Dodge has shown to be the Laramie Limited.

The top picture is a 2013, the bottom a 2012. That is why they are different.

The top picture looks just like the 2013 Limited as shown on the auto show circuit.

Same truck minus the chrome side molding. Add the chrome side molding and its the same truck. You might be crazy. Oh and add the fancy lighting.

Deifintely not the same truck. There were changes for 2013 as clearly seen above, including the Hemi badges and different grille. Unfortunately, the 2014 is going to be closer to the 2013 than the 2012 model.

There was also never a limited with 5 spoke rims. You sure you are not referencing the 2013 Black Express Edition? It's totally debadged and has 5 spoke rims. If you use Google search to look for pictures, a lot of incorrect results pop up so you really have to be careful you are looking at the correct model and year.

That picture is not correct! That is the late released 2012 Laramie limited. The one with the chrome mesh grill and darker wheels, no body side mouldings, and the verticle fog lights is the latest version. Like said before there are lots of incorrect images n the web regarding the Laramie limited.

Read my 2013 Limited thread. It has a pictures and a couple youtube videos. Those are very accurate as I just picked up my truck on Saturday morning. I am going to upload some pics and a review either tonight or tomorrow.

BTW...the truck is sweet! Interior is top notch!
