Yeah, mid-model year new base engine for the Laramie, QC or CC 5'7, is the Pentastar so the increase to the EcoDiesel is the same 4k as it was in 2014.

Ya I didnt understand the extra $500 for the transmission. Why isnt that included from the start? Whats the purpose of making it a line item on the build sheet?

Because it's a different transmission from the Pentastar so the build sheet would have to note this change, 845RE (Chrysler's version of the ZF8HP45) upgraded to the ZF built 8HP70.

When will we be able to order a 2015?
I live in Canada and the salesman at my local Dodge dealership told me the 2014s will be on sale until the end of the year.

The ram guy on another forum shared this information a couple weeks ago about Ram ordering/scheduling

The tentative schedule mentioned above, posted by SPP

Important upcoming dates for those of you on the list and not built yet or on the fence about ordering 2014 or 2015:

July 9th: Last 2014 1500 allocations open up, 2015 HD orders open.
July 11th: Last 2014 1500 orders due.
August 8th: 2015 1500 orders open.
August-ish: 2015 HD production starts.
Late September-ish: Last 2014 1500s built.
October-ish: 2015 1500s start production.


Information may be difficult to find though, They still have 2014 on Ramtrucks.com for the 2500/3500s.

Other new stuff he posted added to the 2500/3500:
Power fold trailer mirrors
Black Forest Green replaces Black Gold Metallic

Outdoorsman with Mossy Oak package can add RamBox (2014 change for 1500s only)

Interesting that your information says 2015 production start is October? I spoke to a dealer yesterday they told me I could order in the next few days and the truck would be ready in 6 weeks. Maybe this is sales speak?
