I have been very happy with what I have seen so far, but I like the looks of the R/T. Does anyone have any idea when DCX will start shipping the R/T?

Production starts Monday on the R/T. Your guess is as good as the next when they will reach your area. Quite a few of the early production units will most likely be customer orders.

Yes the R/T offers a "No Cost Option" of full-time 4X4 WD. The bigger question is can they supply it now or in July 07 as some have suggested. Anyone that has one ordered or when available on Dealer lots please report your findings. THANKS!

I'm in Canada also, and I won't be ready to buy until the summer anyway. I was just curious because I want to take it for a spin and compare it to the SLT. I don't think it will be a huge difference, but I think the suspension is sport tuned on the R/T.

Newbie - I just ordered a White R/T yesterday oout of New Jersey - they said 10 to 12 weeks for delivery - all the dealers are making their floor orders now too - I knew the manager and got $200 over invoice.

Nitro r/t only coming in March?

My dealer told me yesterday that the r/t won't be coming to canada till atleast march, due to the fact they must fill the nitro in 10,000 dodge dealerships in the US.... is my dealer just pulling my leg because he wants me to buy the SLT ?

Well that could be correct since I just got a call from my Local Dealer and told me that Factory called him back today (after I contacted them last week and they couldn't answer any of my questions about the R/T!) and gave them VIN numbers of two (red) Nitro R/Ts with full-time 4X4 transfer case equipment they should have available within 30 days or the end of January.

I contacted another Dealer last week and they also said they will have (only) two R/Ts to Test Drive in late January.

There could be a different launch date for the USA than Canada, and it looks like the Factory plans to have each Dodge Dealer supplied with TWO R/T Nitros in January.

Ordered my Fully Loaded R/T

I ordered my FULLY LOADED R/T....Red, leather, Rear Video, 20" wheels, Not missing a single option, all the bells one could get...AND MY/GIG !! Even though MY/Gig is not available on the order system the dealer placed it on the DUE BILL, all in writing and paid for. Once MY/GIG is available they will swap out the top of the line non MY/GIG system, get me a loaner car install and we are off.

If you go this route make sure you order all other features needed for MY/GIG (Satellite, UConnect).

BTW: MY/Gig is due in 60 days if not sooner! Car arrives in 3 weeks.

Sounds like what I want to order except My/GIG since I already have a great GPS unit that I can use in each car. At $1,700 seems a little steep, however it would add to the resale value. I will go with the $350 6 dish CD player instead, plus 8 speaker system @ $550. Also the UConnect @ $275. Mine using the Dodge Nitro List Pricing comes in at $31,035.

Please post when your R/T comes in. Lucky You!
