Just ordered a 2014 ram 1500 ecodiesel about 2 weeks ago. I got Crew cab with the 5'7" box in the new "blue streak"; Slt package with luxury group and tow group with the upgraded 20's. Truck listed at just under $53k, with discounts it work around $43k. As well it comes with the following

Upgraded premium bucket seats
Remote start and security group
Trailer hitch (which makes no sense why it's not included with the tow group and costs an extra $475)
Spray in liner
Upgraded 8.4a in dash stereo
Park view rear back up camera

I'm located in Ontario Canada, I hope to see the truck within the month. Anyone else in Ontario waiting on a order? Possible wait time?

Welcome aboard.

Those are some great discounts, would you mind breaking down what exactly they were?
I believe we had a few other Ontario members here.

Oy I'm in Ontario as well. Wait time I'm not sure but I do know my local still doesn't have ANY demo models. They've been getting a bunch in that they'll let me poke and prod at but nothing I can spend time with on a substantial road test. Might have to take the bike for a scoot somewhere else :D

Welcome to the boards, order sounds great who doesn't love $10K in discounts ;) You been given your VIN yet?

There was $8500 off plus $1500 off with a trade in of a truck; the dealer I went to had 2 diesels a slt and a bighorn, I was able to take both out on separate occasions.

Last week I checked and they still only had a partial vin....salesman said they are hoping to see it the second week in July, but I highly doubt that deadline. I'll keep the site posted on times as I hear them myself

What truck did you trade in? must be really old for trade in to be that low.

I just heard from the dealer that I now have a vin for the truck, hopefully it's not too much longer. As I get updates I'll post them.

Awesome, glad to have another Canadian owner on the forum. Hopefully everything with the truck runs smoothly for you without any set backs. What trucks have you owned in the past?

And a update on the status, long story short dealer said no promises but July 1; I called dodge and checked tonight and they said another 8-12 weeks which is insane, I hope they are wrong. Said the truck still shows in D1 status.

STILL WAITING.......Ordered on May 23; last update was June 30 the truck had been built and awaiting inspection...Truck is still sitting on inspection, Dodge told me that I was one of the lucky ones and my truck was selected for an extensive inspection to make sure the truck is 110%.....Would a person not expect a 53k truck to be 110%?. So my truck still could take upwards of another month.....starting to get tired of waiting.
