I did a update class today for diesels and found out some infomation on the 2013 dodge. Now before i start, they are 98% precent sure this is all correct but like anything else, Ram can change things up at the last minute. But here it is:
1. The pickup truck engine will be nicknamed "seahawk" and C&C will be nicknamed "Dragon"(i wonder how much the guy gets paid who thinks these names up)
2. The bedplate is a new design to help aid in block strength
3. New oil pan and new pickup tube(the oil pan looks alittle different but not much)
4. Engines will have yet another new dampner with a friction shim behind it
5. New cam with different intake duration and lift
6. Pistons will be coated and have different design bowl
7. Different coolant jets for pistons
8. ALL 2013 vehicles will use new coolant called OAT and is purple
9. Cylinder head is different to help swirl to take place in combustion chamber
10. New turbo that is now programmable
11. Exhaust manifold is now a split design and EGR uses the back 3 cylinders
12. New NOX sensor at turbo
13. Trucks will have a longer wait to start lamp that will last up to 75 seconds instead of 30 seconds
14. Fan pulley is smaller to allow for faster spinning and water pump pulley is smaller
15. The batwing(plate covering the egr tube on front of engine) is new
16. New flex plate
17. New airbox that will have a second door that is opened by a actautor door when the PCM thinks engine needs more fresh air
18. Fuel rail will use 2 sensors for fuel pressure now
19. Fuel filter will be a 3 micron and 10 micron filter now. If u do not install a fuel filter the truck will not start
20. C&C truck injectors are the same as the injectors used in cummins medium duty engine
21. you will be able to reset the oil life thru the EVIC now or use the gas pedal
22. New PCM will be used consisting of 96 wires. Uses new software and new coding so aftermarket guys will prolly have to go back to the drawing board on programming
23. and FINALLY 2500 and 3500 trucks WILL USE DEF
I just figured i would share the infomation with yall. If anyone has any questions i will try to answer as best as possible. I do NOT know what the new HP and TQ ratings will be but they will be higher

Tater....Allpar is a horrible thing to base info on
In that article alone, there's probably 30 things wrong. Allpar is good for rumors and there's some decent info on older stuff, but as for what is coming.......you might as well link us to the Greenpeace site, it might actually have some useful info
It does sound like they are making some major changes, let's hope the entire package improves; more power, more mileage, more reliability. I'd love to be able to purchase a new truck and not have my first thoughts be "damn, I gotta delete this thing".
