Default Ordering a new Dodge, got questions

Ordering a new truck tomorrow from my local dealer and got some questions.

#1. What is the difference in the sport model and the slt other than the price?

#2. How does everyone feel about the entertainment system in the back, good or not worth the expense?

#3. What kind of price are you guys getting on fully loaded 2011 crew cab 4x4 with the HIMI? Just want a good starting point for negotiations, looks like the MSRP is going to be right at 40K?

Painted bumpers versus Chrome, other additional Items.

Do you have kids? Yes if so.

Look at www.edmunds.com for a comparison pricing tool.

Hope this helps.

#1. The Sports usually carry a little bigger option load vs the SLT's. The sports have color keyed bumpers with fog lights vs. chrome on the SLT's.

#2. Best money I have ever spent in a vehicle. My 3 boys love it!

#3. Not sure about the pricing stateside but my loaded up Sport ran me 43.

SLT it is, like chrome. Now the price, like everyone I want it cheap as possible. I wonder what the invoice price is? That would be the price that I want to shoot for.

check out EDMUNDS website

my SLT came with painted bumpers & everything else besides leather heated seats

GET a radio with NAVIGATION & UCONNECT that is working, not what they call CAPABLE or READY, that just means that you have to spend a ton of money to make it work, it is missing a microphone & a bunch of other stuff

I went with the SLT 4.7 and love it. the next package up is the Big Horn. You still get the Chrome all around but it ads the step rails and the hemi as well as dual exhaust and some more comforts inside. as far as the rear entertainment center we just went to walmart and got a set of dual screen dvd players for the headrests 99 bucks. one of the main reason we went this way was break-ins of autos in our area. BTW Congratz on the new purchase.
My '11 ram was my first truck and new vehicle I ever purchased and Its awesome.

Go to the dealership and ask them for an invoice print off. This will list every thing about the truck and how much it costs, and it will give you the invoice price which should be a starting point for negotiations. On this sheet it should also tell you how much holdback the dealer is receiving. I would be asking for some of that to be taken off your price too. Good luck

Add the trailer tow package and get the brake controller installed factory. Dodge did a god job on their brake controller for fit and finish and the 250 now is much better then the $400 to add it later. $400 was my quote form the dealer in Canada but I think the folks around here were getting it cheaper.

Well, we are going to order the truck in a few hours, should be a pretty good time. I did the edmonds thing earlier and they have the invoice at 39K for what we want. If we can get out the door for 40K I would be happy, but less would be better. I will post the final price and options later.

you should get AT LEAST 10k off sticker with the direction gas prices are going and the crappy economy. I bought my 09 in Nov of 09 and got 13k off the sticker.
