R/T Build Dates?

Does anyone know where we can go to get the status on build dates for 4x4Nitro R/T's? All the dealer is saying is that he doesn't have a build date yet and that they are pushing the regional mgrs to get these units done. There has to be some web site we can go to to see the backlog or where we are in the lineup. I've got an ending lease and still waiting since the beginning of December for the build date on the car. This is getting old fast.

Re: R/T Build Dates?

There is no website, only through the dealer or if you know someone that works at DCX that can get inside info.

If you just ordered it, it will take about week or so to get the ball rolling..

Re: R/T Build Dates?

I just bought a Inferno Red 4x4 R/T. It is being delivered tomorrow. You can search for vehicles on the Dodge site. I used the advanced search mode and then just spent some time looking at all the dealer inventories until I found what I wanted. I found at least 20 4x4 R/T's at various dealers - the 4x4's all appear to being going up North.

Cool Re: R/T Build Dates?

I ordered my Inferno R/T in Mid December and it will still take approx. 4-5 weeks when I checked with my dealer a day ago. The only way I was able to find out was emailing him. I guess this is what happens when you order almost everything that comes with it!

Re: R/T Build Dates?

Finally - I got a build date of February 23rd on my spec'd order R/T with probable delivery first week of March. VIN has been assigned. Unknown still whether it will have full-time AWD (what I spec'd) or more likely the part-time AWD - who cares as long as it comes now.

You are right it will be part time 4wd, but no big thing you will have a great ride.

Re: R/T Build Dates?

I just hope we don't have all the problems the early versions of the SXT and SLt have. Maybe they have it all debugged by now. I know the 4-speed auto is working better with a speciall fluid additive. Has anyone got any word of 4.0 5-speed auto problems?

Across two forums all that I have read in form of complaint about R/T powertrains are 1) one case where owner thinks engine was making too much noise, and 2) transmission was shifting too hard. My personal view on this, 1) the 4.0L is a high performance 6 cyl. pushed to the limits. High compression may make it sound a little like a diesel. 2) Dodge has historically had tranny's with strong shifts, plus this is an Nitro R/T after all, not a Chrysler 300!
