I got the same sheet when I ordered on 07/23 showing the lower price. I think the way the dealer will get around the price increase when you make a specific amount under invoice deal is to show you the new invoice when the truck actually arrives. If it happens to go up sometime after the order, the dealer has no control over that and reverts back to your deal of so much under the new invoice. I agree if I committed to the purchase of the truck when the order was placed, that's the price I should pay and not the increased price of the truck when it finally arrives. As a customer, I have no control over build delays due to parts availability or whatever else occurs, yet I pay the penalty if the price goes up during the process. If there is an advantage with the Ford, I'd say the folks there know how to facilitate an order and get it out quickly. Before I decided to go with the Ram, a local Ford dealer ordered a F-150 with the equipment I would want and no commitment to buy. 5 weeks to the day, that truck was on the lot. For the Ram, it's looking like 12-13 weeks before it finally arrives. Both come from Michigan so it doesn't have anything to do with shipping distances. Just another area I think Chrysler is shooting itself in the foot on.

SLOW delivery. Ordered my '14 2500 Laramie 4x4 CC on 31 July. VOTS showed that it shipped on 3 September. Stopped at dealer today. "Should" arrive by 27 Sep. Wow! That's almost FOUR weeks to get a truck from the mfg plant in Saltillo to the dealer. VERY, VERY slow...

BAB, be happy yours shipped.. My order was placed on 8/6 and I have no idea when it might ship..

Between this, losing my $500 rebate and the price increase, I'm tempted to cancel and just give up on Ram to get a Duramax ... even though I hate it's interior. At least on the DMax, I'm pretty sure I can get employee pricing, which takes some of the sting out of the terrible interior and I know I can have one in my driveway within a week.

You appear to be the exception BAB.... It would appear the 2500's and 3500 trucks coming out of Mexico are built and shipped quicker than the 1500's out of Warren....

My 1500 regular cab out of Mexico shipped 8/14 and was at dealer in Idaho 8/29. It left Mexico by rail and went to Alabama, changed trains to Salt Lake. Seems like North Carolina would be a lot faster.

Wow that's a quick order.
I placed my order on the 8/17. I'm expected to ship on 9/27. I'm expecting it here within the 2nd week of October, Maybe the 1st.

I agree. If they try to charge me more on mine I'll demand them to make the difference up in my trade. I signed a purchase agreement and everything so it'll be a bad day for them if they try to haggle another $500 out of me

My experience has been that if the price from the factory goes up before you take delivery, dealer will ALWAYS want to charge you for that difference. Expect to hear something like "it is pricing from the factory, which is totally beyond my control". That said, they will likely try to make it up to you somehow if you raise a stink - like some all weather floor mats or free oil changes or something. But absolutely go in there expecting to fight for your original price. If you say nothing, they will do nothing.

And I am now starting week number two of my truck in the "inspection" phase...

I stopped by the dealer today and had them look it up. They told me 3-4 more weeks until I can drive it away.
