    Hi All,

    I'm new to this forum and I want to thank you for all the useful information I found here.

    I'm ordering a 2013 RAM 1500 R/T and wanted to know if the new 8 speed automatic transmission option will be available for this truck or not? If yes, when?

    I've asked a couple of dealers regarding this and they don't have a clue!!

    Any useful information will be appreciated.

    Regards,

    Khalid

    It should be available for the r/t model and they are starting production in about two months but you should be able to order one now

    I am getting it on my Laramie, don't know why the R/T wouldn't have it. It is their performance model after all

    Agreed. The Laramie I ordered has the 8 speed, and I'm not aware of any model restrictions.

    I read that right now they're making only 4x4's with the 8 speed and have delayed the manufacturing of the 4x2's for a couple of months. NO idea if it's available or not on the R/T's though.
