There may be some light on the horizon for orders. Or, maybe I'm being lied to!:) Placed order at my dealer on 1/5 for a 2022 Big Horn 4X4 Crew Cab short bed Ecodiesel. Dealer said to expect 3-4 month wait. But, by the 11th, the order was in the system, VIN and VON assigned, all parts available and scheduled for production with an estimated ship date of 1/29 which would be less than 3 weeks from order. Hope it happens. I do have a question for anyone who has traded in another RAM on their new truck. I have a 2016 Tradesman Hemi Club Cab 4X4 with 65K miles I'll either trade in or sell myself. Have you been able to get Blue Book - more - less for trade ins lately?
Wow, that is insane. I keep wishing for news like this, but it is what it is. My ideal timeline would be March/April to get through the worst of winter here and be ready for camping season.

Here is my order timeline on a 2022 Longhorn 1500, ECOdiesel, Level 1, Multi-functional tailgate, and a few other options;

Ordered 11/30/21
Build sheet 01/11/22
Truck Built 01/13/22
Window Sticker 01/14/22
Shipped 01/18/2022
Dealer Delivered in 49 days 01/18/22 (I live and bought in southeast Michigan)

The scary part is the MSRP when up $2,085.00 from order to the issuance of the window sticker. Fortunately, I was price protected for the amount at the time of order.

Nice build and congratulations, would love to see pictures. My dealer had a similar build on the floor, definitely a beauty. 49 days is really impressive. Definitely looking like some trucks are being turned around in much shorter time.

There are a lot of people on the various RAM forums trying to put rhyme to reason on how RAM selects orders sequencing. There are folks out there that have ordered a "like mine" vehicle that I got in about 8 weeks (my delivery is this Friday if I get a chance to make it out, the dealer is an hour away) months ago. I feel chosen.

I'll post pictures when I pick it up. Don't expect anything big, it is just yet another 2022 RAM, but for me, it will be mine.

Picked it up yesterday. Just another 2022 RAM ECODiesel but this one, it is mine :)

Hard to swallow the MSRP of these trucks, the MSRP increased by $2,085 between my order date (11/30) and yesterday. Fortunately, I was priced locked at the time of order, received the November incentives, and received a $2,500 additional incentive because my trade-in, 2013 Laramie 1500, had a MAXCare lifetime service contract that was canceled.

I did buy a MAXCare 8 year 85K mile for this one. I guess what made it affordable is the high value my trade brought.

Congratulations, I hope you have many happy miles. I managed to shop around for FCA partner pricing, which helped bring my price down. I’m also locked in right now and the price has gone up just over $2k for the same build in just 2 weeks. Hoping for some rebate to kick in before my truck makes it in, but it’s nice to see some folks getting their vehicles sooner than expected.

With the high demand for new vehicles, low interest rates, and 7% inflation if you want a new truck you better grab it. Even financing will save you money as long as the interest rate is lower than the inflation rate. I'm afraid we aint seen nothing yet.
