Default Is the R/T gone for 2014?

So I just went to the RAM website to built a 2014 RAM R/T to see the price difference from mine (yes I was bored) The R/T is not an option anymore. So instead I built a 2 door sport and it said it came with 22" wheels, but 4.10 gears were not an option.

So It looks like the RAM R/T's run is over and has been replaced with a not so cool sport edition.

Basically what they did. Based on the wheels and the gear ratio of the 8-speed you end up with the same final drive. You still get the R/T grill badge but it just didn't seem quite the same to be. I am pretty sure the limited slip is still standard but the torque converter is gone. Glad I got my '13 when I did.

I think the Ram R/T is still here. You can't get any other Ram with the 4.10 Ratio in the 1500 series.

Not crazy about no shifter.... although others say that they got used to the knob and like it.

as far as looks it appears to be the same. they have lost the 4.10's and appear to have lost the torque converter

No sign of R/T on the build sheet. All they did was stick an emblem on the truck. Test drove a 2014 sport last sunday and boy was it awesome. Contemplating on trading my 2011 . Love the interior upgrades on the 2014 and the tranny!

I'm wondering if any of these are real R/T's because according to the RAM website 4.10's are gone. I do really like that 8 speed though...I drove a four door 2014 larmie at work with a hemi/8 speed and it felt like it could stomp my 2012 R/T...not too thrilled about that. Plus now all the sport models come factory with the R/T hood.

Thanks for my making my truck not so special anymore Chrysler.

Default fold down rear seat

One of the features listed is a fold down rear seat - pretty good good trick when there isn't a rear seat.
