The Ram HD diesel offers it, but most people probably buy the non HD gas model. Why not offer it in gas, too? I recently test drove a number of manuals---Mustang GT, Camaro 2SS, and an Infiniti G37 Coupe. They are fun and I enjoy them; however, now that automatics have sometimes more speeds, and are often better on gas mileage, it is harder and harder to make the case for them.
