Depending on length of QC program, usually up to a week or two for shipping to begin. Longer for an all-new generation, shorter for in between model years. With the refresh having the new trans, radios, etc. I would expect no more than 30 days from start of production to start of shipping - unless unexpected issues pop up.

Thanks Milous; that' excellent news. I have to say, if the '14 GC CRD wasn't hitting Australian shores until late 2014, I'd have to start looking elsewhere (again!). Very happy I don't really need to yet.

Is it correct that the '14 GC CRD will hit Aust shores in Q2 2014?
Cheers

To address you and Chevy's point/question. I think an early February late January production open is possible. Problem is they will not ship straight away. More than likely they will ship to storage for a "mass" rail ship. I'm not saying you wont see a few early field vehicles and high priority orders go out, but I just dont see these things hitting dealer lots in any sort of volume until april/may timeframe. For instance we started building 13 Rams in July(also a refresh), but the first one did not hit the lot until last week. Trust me there were a crap ton of them piled up in storage, they just werent released for shipping.

Then again I could very well eat my words as this may all change next week. All I can go by is the info I have infront of me currently and experience from the past refresh launches. What I do know is the new WK2 is ready to go unveiling wise. I saw it in Vegas in September and its definitely a very impressive update.

That makes more sense, as in your earlier post you has stated that they will start to ship late April/May.

It's like predicting the weather, things can (and do) change from day to day LOL.

The 2013 RAM 1500? I'm on Cars.com, and it's showing 14,801 2013 RAM 1500's for sale (listed on cars.com at least) in the US. Unless all of these are not actually on the lots yet, or all 14K of them were listed within the last week?

I will be severely disappointed if I won't be able to drive the 2014 until April or May though. You say you should have a better idea next week?

I done told y'all to calm down.. You, the other guy, and whoever else orders a '14 early, will have it before the end of Q1.. Guaranteed!

If I'm wrong, you guys can play cyber "rock-paper-scissors" to decide on who gets my car first.. How's that? lol

Have you seen any of the '14 CRD (US) pilots Milous spoke of?

X2, I know a month ago 250-265 dealers left St Louis with a new Ram.
Awesome truck too. Anxious to drive the hemi with 8 speed.
