Shivaguru Prabhakaran, Hi guys, this is Shivaguru! I am very much excited to be a part of the IndianAutosBlog.com team. I have a small collection of scale models and intend to get more in the future. I look forward to see what the creative mind can create in technology and cars, reinventing the way we travel.
The Ram Rumble Bee Concept that was teased a few days ago has been unveiled at the 2013 Woodward Dream Cruise, an annual motoring event that takes place in Detroit, USA.

The Rumble Bee Concept is based on the rear-wheel drive Ram 1500 pickup truck. The truck is painted in matte Drone Yellow color and rides on glossy black 24″ Vellano VRH alloy wheels.
The dual exhaust tops, fuel filler shutter, hood air intakes and front grill are also finished in glossy black. There are Super Bee vinyls on the sides of the pickup. Thanks to King Suspension the ride height has been reduced by 2″ which reportedly improves the handling characteristics of the Rumble Bee.
On the inside, the Rumble Bee gets complementing Drone Yellow and black dual tone leather upholstery with dual tone stitching. The highlight is the rotary gear selector dial has a real bee embedded into an illuminated honeycomb mesh!
Powering the Rumble Bee Concept is a 5.7 litre HEMI V8 petrol motor that is capable of 395bhp and 551 Nm of torque. The power is harnessed by a 8-speed TorqueFlite automatic transmission. The pickup has two “Rumble” buttons below the gear selector which makes the car go “loud and louder”.
Reid Bigland, President and CEO – Ram Truck Brand, Chrysler Group LLC said –
There’s a lot of energy surrounding concept trucks and buzz models, and the Ram Design Team revels in creating something that is unique for our customers to enjoy.
