Ram has introduced a new sport-truck concept known as the Rumble Bee, a modern take on a classic trim package.
Mechanically, the Rumble Bee is based off a Ram R/T, and gets its power from a 5.7-liter HEMI with 395 hp and 407 lb-ft of torque that has been fit with a cold-air intake system. All that jam is sent through an eight-speed automatic transmission, hooked up to a 4.10 rear-axle gear.
Mean looks continue the trim package with the Rumble Bee sporting ‘drone yellow’ matte paint with a gloss black accent stripe complete with the brand’s classic ‘speed bee’ design. Gloss black 24-inch Vellano VRH custom wheels are fitted, while the suspension is dropped by 2-inches, giving the Rumble Bee a tough low-profile appearance.

On the inside, the black and yellow theme is carried over with two-tone leather sport mesh seats and ‘Rumble Bee’ stitched into the chairs, floor mats and door bolsters. Easily the most unique element of this truck is the new rotary shift-knob which has an actual amber-encased bee inside of it, complete with its own backlighting and honeycomb pattern background.
To make sure this truck sounds as good as it looks, two buttons to control how loud the Mopar cat-back dual-exhaust system are fitted below the shift knob, setting the exhaust to either ‘loud’ or ‘LOUDER!.’ Finishing up inside, 10th anniversary commemorative badges are fitted to the dash along with a honeycomb pattern.
The truck made its debut at the Woodward Dream Cruise taking place this weekend in Detroit, Michigan. Ram has only called the package a concept, and has yet to comment on whether or not it will make it to production as a limited-edition model.
