Greetings all. I'm a new member, I just placed my order for a new 2015 Laramie 4x4 ED pretty much fully loaded. I'm pretty excited!

The only thing is I'm worried that the wait will be killer... I've been told the usual 6-8 weeks but I saw a post on here somewhere showing that the 2015 units won't even be in production 'till mid October!:eek: If that is still the case I imagine I'll be waiting till at least mid November. I'm sure I'll die of stress from all the waiting, so I hope it's sooner.

How did you do that? I thought the ordering books didn’t open until next Friday? I was at a dealership last week and they couldn’t do anything with a 2015 1500 yet.

Maybe things different in Canada?

I'm waiting to see the differences in the 2015 vs the 2014. Perhaps I may wait till 2016 before I get one for myself.

You are correct. We did the deal yesterday but I don't think they can officially order it 'till the 8th. I was looking for a 2014 but there was not any around with my options so we had to order and anything ordered now will be a 2015.

Yeah I guess it will depend on how backlogged they are with the remaining 2014s . This is a new process for me. My 1st new truck and 1st time I've ever had to deal with the ordering process. I don't have anything from my dealer yet just the receipt for my deposit. I guess at some point the give me a VOT (whatever that is :confused:) and then a VIN closer to production time. From reading others posts there seems to be a way to track it online as well but I'm not sure.

October 6 is supposed to be the 1st day of 2015 production, so it could be Nov/Dec until you get the keys...or key fob, USB looking thing, whatever these new vehicles have.

hey welcome to the site and congrats with the order, VOTS is the Vehicle Order Tracking System, you can see where your truck is throughout the entire process. You can track it basically right up until it gets to your front door ;)

When and where in the process would I get this? I imagine not 'till after the 8th when the order can be officially placed??

Congrats lad & cajunrider. You should have your vin by now. If not contact your dealer. Go to ramforumz.com & you'll find an update thread under 2015 rams. Check in with spp & give him your vin & he'll post daily updates on the status of your truck build. Much more detailed than vots. Good luck with finding patience.

It seems like ram is facing some production delays as I have tried to order a Long Horn 4x2 crew cab with sir suspension. However the air suspension is not currently an option and still waiting for reply of available date.

Dealer says tomorrow or Wednesday. Getting a little antsy.
I ordered mine 7/5 and the build date is 9/8. Seems to be bucket seats holding things up for me. Every build is a little different and gets scheduled according to parts availability.

The waiting is tough especially when you see more and more on the road these days but I know I'll forget all about it once I've had it for a couple of weeks.
