Reader Bill P. informed Allpar that the 2013 Ram 1500 Regular Cabs will start production early next week. The 2013 Ram Quad and Crew Cabs are already in production.
The next generation of Ram 2500 and Chassis Cabs appear now to be scheduled for a January 2013 launch, with the Ram 3500 following in February or March. These are expected to carry forward the Ram 1500's aerodynamic improvements and, most likely, its method of slashing parasitic losses (including wind drag) to raise mileage. While there has been no word of whether a stop-start system or active shutters will be included, sources appear to be certain that the Rams will have a standard or optional 6.4 liter V8 engine, with and without MDS depending on the model and transmission, to get the base price down.
