Thanks! How are you searching cars.com for them? I dont think the color or trim is an option.....
Cars.com has a Keyword Search option (see attachment). Just go to their site, select New 2020 Ram 1500 from their homepage, then in the Keyword Search type "Ceramic Gray". Make sure you select "Match All" from the dropdown menu.

When I found the BTS I got I was so excited I never realized it was a Long Bed. I had to go measure my garage to make sure it would fit. According to what I measured and what was listed on the specs I had about 6 (ish) inches total of wiggle room in my garage length wise. The folding mirror button helps it fit width wise too. I was worried I was pushing it with the long bed and asked the dealer (friend) if they had a short bed in Ceramic Gray. He said no (they did have a twin to my truck arriving later that someone had put a deposit down). Two days after I get my truck I see the shortbed version of my truck going to a different local dealer... lol. I'm happy with the long bed. It fits fine. Only bad thing is I have to keep the garage door open to allow the passenger (side) to get out.

Oh this is my first half ton truck.

I know there's the monster MSRP thread in the other forum, but I was hoping to get a consensus of you all who have purchased BTS Rams how you've fared in terms of discounts? To keep it simple, if you wouldn't mind sharing your discounted price from MSRP (so incentives/rebates and any dealer discount) before tax/title/license/etc.

Twice now this week I've come across and inquired about some decently discounted BTS trucks only to have the dealers come back and say "oh no, that was a mistake. Because they're limited editions we're only offering manufacturer rebates and no dealer discount." Makes me mad that they don't check pricing before the trucks hit the internet!

Same discount as a regular Bighorn.

That's how the trucks that I inquired about were originally priced. Definitely in line with the other Big Horns at the dealers. Then once you inquire to make a deal it's a whole different story. The kicker is the original prices were so good, there would have been no need for negotiation...would have accepted the price on the spot.

The deal has been signed and finalized on the one I mentioned to you. It was the $13k off msrp.

Yep, that's about the discount these trucks had...originally. Only to be cut by more than half.
That may have been the case at some dealers, but not the case at the dealer that I have been working with. Do you need a referral?

I appreciate that, but unfortunately that dealer doesn't have any incoming BTS trucks that really match what I'm looking for. And I doubt there will be any dealer trades happening on these trucks.

Look on page 2 or 3 of this thread. We answered this question in more detail.

The short version of mine is 59.6 MSRP - discounted to 49.5.

Yes, thank you. But there have been more members who have just recently purchased so I was hoping to get their input as well.

only had it a week, but mods on the way. It does have the 3.92s and the 33 gallon. Pretty loaded. My dealer got 2 and they sold the same day they arrived. Corsa exhaust, then 35s on whatever inch lift looks right. And getting rid of the plastic uca's.

I was curious as well. I'm in SoCal so I know the market is a bit wonky here. I sent a few emails about a ceramic grey BTS and none of the dealerships had a timeline when they were getting any in. I got an e-mail today from a local dealer that they got word a ceramic BTS was coming in next week. MSRP is $54,535, and the dealer said NO discounts other than rebates :(.

After reading the MSRP thread, I was kind of bummed. Maybe they will be more motivated once I set foot in the door :rolleyes:

Picked it up Saturday. We had passed on a big horn night edition because the interest rate was pathetic for how good our credit is.

Casually checked their website for new inventory 3 weeks later and saw this one. It's too gorgeous to pass up.

12 inch uconnect. Hemi. Off road group. LED lighting. 3.92 gears. 2 tone blue and black interior. Love it.

Congrats. That's everything I was looking for. Just curious, how are credit options better on the BTS compared to a regular Big Horn?

i got all the rebates and my fca discount and dealer discounted too. they treated it like any other bighorn
rate in RI were great. personally if a dealer wont budge other than rebates on what these trucks stand for i wouldnt deal with them for gouging what honors our service men and women.

I wholeheartedly agree, however, it seems like all of the local Southern California dealerships are doing the same. The market here is robust enough where even in this pandemic, truck dealerships can present buyers with MSRP prices and tell us take it or leave it.

Toyota Tacoma's are being sold at MSRP and some cases $3,000 market up.

I would try and buy from another state but California DMV makes the process a large enough hassle that its not worth it.
