I would like to order a 2023 Ram 1500 Limited. My dealer says there is a color restiction in effect and I cannot place an order for the 1500 in silver. I haven't seen any news of this restriction anywhere. Has anyone else heard of this issue?

I've seen that mentioned here or in another forum. With so many things in short supply and rising prices, it's not a good time to be ordering a new vehicle, unfortunately.

Came very close to ordering a 23 Lonestar (Bighorn) a couple of months ago. Decided to look at 22s that were on the lot instead. Pickin’s we’re slim but found I could buy a 22 Laramie for less than a 23 Lonestar would have been. I’ll keep it it for 2-3 years and maybe the supply chains will be back to normal then.

There was a Paint Pigment shortage, it affected mostly a Grey paint
Another forum member spoke to someone at his dealership, it seems the issue has been taken care of

I can confirm after speaking with my dealer there is no more delay in Granite Crystal Metallic. I cannot say for certain if Silver is having the same problem that the Granite did, but when speaking to my dealer, he said there were no issues with paint.
