I Just build them
I asked around today and I was told we're going to start building the 2019 Model with the 2 new engines 3.6 BSG and the 3.0 Turbo Diesel in late October or early November. I asked if there will be a manual transmission option for the diesel and hopefully I will have that answer tomorrow. The hybrid engine should be available by the summer of 2019. We're supposed to have a 2 week shutdown in March to retool for it. I will update when I know more.

Yep, you are correct. Both should be available soon. Once I start seeing them come down the line, I'll post and let everyone know.

Your timeline means the 3.6 without e-Torque is short lived. Sounds like anyone not wanting e-Torque on their 3.6 needs to order asap?

That is not true on the Ram the 5.7 BSG option is only $1,450, the actual engine option is $1,195 for the 5.7 V8. The BSG option on the 3.6 V6 in the Ram is free because it’s the standard engine.

Another question - if an order has already been placed for a non-BSG 3.6 (24R code for Rubi with auto), will it be that engine or will ALL 2019s be come with the 3.6 BSG?

Does Manuel shift for you, kind of like a transmission concierge?

I keed, I keed. Thanks for the info!
For what it's worth, I placed an order last week for a 2019 Sahara and BSG was still not available.....no ETA could be provided by the dealer...

So what does it mean having a Diesel v6 vs 3.6 Pentastar with a manual transmission?
Like realistically, smoother on a highway, better acceleration, what else? May order it instead of 3.6 Gasoline engine
