No, it was listed in Truck Trend US magazine. Dealers may sell for less, with employee pricing ... and manufacturer rebates ...

The Touareg looks like an interesting diesel option too. My brother in law is looking at the Jeep Grand Cherokee diesel but can't find a dealer with one.

That price is for the super top of the line model. The realistic model that I priced out was 47k and this is nicely equipped in my opinion.

It should be a nice addition to the Ram truck line. They seem to be making all the stuff truck guys have been wanting and this particular option is long overdue. I just hope it lives up to expectations as it may force the hand of the other players. As for me I just want the new 2014 2500 with 6.4 hemi and air suspension.

It has turned out to be better than my expectations, I got interested in it after read an article on the Porsche Cayenne Diesel and how well it did because it is basically the same vehicle and comparing it to my past avalanche, it pulls better gets much better mileage but I miss all that room in the back. Sorry I did not mean to hy-jack the thread.

Lots of focus on truck mileage in the magazine articles.

Add: The 2013 RAM 1500 Laramie Crew 4x4 V8 5.7Hemi they tested only has 957 lb. payload.
Wow. 957 payload. That would be easy to exceed with just passengers. "Sorry Jim, you've been getting after those twinkles and we just can't take you with us without exceeding GVWR." :rollback: Seriously, I hope it's more in line with what ependydad found in order to be competitive. If it doesn't sell well, none of the others will get in the game. I think it would be a great thing for all of us for the big 3 to get in a small diesel competition. At a sticker of 47k, it would be competitive with strong rebates. You can buy a nicely loaded F150 with the Ecoboost, Screw, 4x4, XLT for low to mid 30's after typical rebates and some haggling. I think you can expect to pay a premium for a diesel, but with I think it's going to need to be within a few thousand to get most people to justify it. I know I'd take a good long look at one if it was competitively priced with the Ecoboost and wasn't ridiculously low on payload.

I was just seeing this on the Book of Faces. Multiple sources had this, with one source saying 2016 for the diesel.
