New hemi motor on hold

I was attempting to order a truck for my job, a 2019 Ram 1500 with, apparently, a new 5.7 hemi for this year. They went to order the truck and got a weird message saying that they could not place the order. Fast forward a few calls to ram.. Turns out that motor failed the federal emissions testing and all the production has been stopped for that motor and any vehicles using that motor cannot be ordered.. Guess I'll be driving an f150 soon.. I did like the rambox!

Missed the last part.. Ram tells us that it could be up to 8 months before we can get an order placed.. Ouch!

Yea, you aren't missing anything but Ticking and Smoking.. Like the old commercial, " That thing Got a Hemi in it?" " Yea, can't you hear that lovely Hemi tick and see the puff of smoke at startup? Sure it has A Hemi!"
My 6.4 performed well, but I absolutely hated the smoke and tick it would leave sometimes.

I'm guessing the engine combo was the new one with the e-torque 5.7 Hemi. Later RJD

I use my work truck pretty hard it's holding up good for being in 2013 doesn't bother me.. have just over a 120,000 miles on it between the idle time and drive time.

I'll stick with the ram if we can get it.

I have the 5.7 L hemi in my 2016 Dodge Durango R/T... I have 24K miles on it and I love it... lots of power, no smoke or other obnoxious behavior... just a lot of power (360 hp) and torque (390) and that heartwarming grrrrowl we all know and love. Makes a great toad as well with the 2 spd transaxle.

Yeah, been a Chevy guy for personal vehicles but I have zero issues.. Relooked at my miles try 150,000... Still screams along and does its thing. It's only being replaced due to its "time" to be rotated from the fleet. It will remain in service for a long time.

Yep was a devoted Chevy guy all my life and finally got tired of the same old looking truck with the same old interior. It was time to try something different. Still own Chevy cars even my 71 I bought new Later RJD

I considered a 2500 Ram diesel when I was looking at my current chevy. But Chevy had what I wanted on the lot and was 10k cheaper...
