I read a blurb in he Local paper which looks like it was rerun nationally by the Detroit free press. It says Ram trucks is still only shipping and selling only regular V8 Hemis because the EPA has not yet certified the mild hybrid etorque v6 and v8.

I ordered my 2019 eTorque Limited with Ramboxes on May 10. It is built and been waiting shipment since July 10 but I think it isn’t shipping because of the Monroney sticker issue because it’s the eTorque.

I haven’t read this anywhere on the forum. What have you guys heard?

I don't understand why...its literally the same engine just with stop/start, and the EPA already published fuel economy numbers. In fact, a guy on the 5th gen Rams site already drove one at a dealer in Dallas

There are ETorque trucks in customer hands, it is the rambox holding things up. A few have been built, but we have not seen any ship yet from Detroit. We have been given an August 15 estimated ship date from FCA. We will see if that holds true.

There is supposedly a rail car shortage that is hampering shipping of new Ram trucks.

At least you are getting ship dates. I am always told the status with no eta.
