Default 2011 Ram 1500 R/T

Talked to the sales manager of my dealer today and he is getting ready, having seen my 2010, to order a 2011 Ram R/T. So apparently Dodge is going to keep the model alive.
Asked him if there was any difference between the 2010 and the 2011 and he said there wouldn't be.

By the way, did anyone see the current "Car&Driver" mini-test of the 2010 Ram heavy duty? The darn thing weighed over 7,600 lb. just sitting there! That, to me anyway, sounds way too heavy even for a truck.

Im glad Dodge is going to keep the R/T going. It would be a shame to see it go. As far as i see it its a great move. As for the truck mentioned.....it does sound pretty heavy.

Gotta love the R/T such a nice truck! As for the weight of the truck, that is damn heavy haha. If it has a diesel it is not that bad, the torque will be able to move it no problem

Yeah, the '10 HDs hare absolute beasts, cummins powered with amazing flexibility for off roading. Just for a comparison, my '09 F-350 Powerstroke's Tare weight is 3,860kgs that comes to 8,496 lbs. For a 1 ton truck, that's heavy for gross weight, so the 7,600lbs is a good weight for a HD truck.

Default 2011 Dodge Ram R/T

I ordered a 2010 Dodge Ram R/T on April 10/10 and waited 5 weeks and was notified by my dealer that Dodge cancelled the order that they cancelled a few trucks with no explanation. They said that they will honor the price for a 2011 R/T but I'll have to wait for a build date. The dealer said that some options were standard on a 2011 like 22" wheels that I wanted and the stereo is the one with the 30Gig and I can't get Inferior Red they are dropping the color from the trucks but there is a new Deep Cherry Red but not at the start of production. This sucks because I wanted the truck I ordered but will have to wait.
