Ram concept Teaser

It looks like Ram is firing a shot back at Ford’s F-150 Tremor sport truck with a new version of the Rumble Bee, revealed partially in a set of teaser images that the company released. 

The large air intakes, low front spoiler and large wheels seen in the teaser photo confirm that this definitely is a sport truck, and the second image verifies that it will be a reincarnation of the Rumble Bee, a graphics package that was offered on the 2004 and 2005 Hemi-powered Ram 1500. A limited production run package, the Rumble Bee could only be equipped on regular cab, short-box, Hemi-powered SLT-trim trucks.

RUMBLE BEE ROTARY SWITCH

Expect the new Rumble Bee to get its power then from a 5.7-liter Hemi V8 that makes 395 hp and 401 lb-ft of torque. It will likely be sent through a 4.10 rear-axle, and hooked up to an eight-speed automatic transmission.

For looks, expect the truck to sport a black and yellow paint job complete with black stripes and the classic Super Bee logo that can be seen partially in the background of the front end photo.

So far, Ram has only referred to the truck as a concept, though it seems likely that if it is just an appearance package, it will make it into production. It’s not quite the resurrection of the Ram SRT-10 that we had hoped for, but it will do.

The truck will debut at 13 mile and Woodward during the 2013 Woodward Dream Cruise on August 17th at 10am. This is the 19th year for the Woodward Dream Cruise where thousands of classic cars will gather in Detroit to drive along Woodward Avenue.

    Still wont beat a Tremor with twins. Stock ecoboosts are eating HEMIS already.

    I’m sorry what? the Ecoboost runs a high 14 stock in the quarter and the Hemi Ram’s run a mid-low 14. While stout, and we respect the Ecoboost, no stock truck can outrun the newer Rams at the moment. The only truck that has it beat is the TRD Tundra with a supercharger and it runs low 13′s.

    No turbo and and not overpriced the hemi kills the ecoboost and is more fuel economical. The 8 speed with a 3.21 will actually get over 22 mpgs and has a 4to1 launch gear that pulls off the line shifts seemlessly and tows or climbs like crazy. Imagine what would happen when they multiair and turbo the hemi or even a pentastar 3.6 liter or the up and coming segment exclusive 3.0 deisel with the 8 speed I would take over a overpriced ford any day. And have fun pulling our cab off when your fuel pump goes out at 65 thousand miles and your not cover for the 16 hr fuel pump repair
