Is Ram Reviving The Rumble Bee?

News of a new Ram performance truck was bolstered by these images released by Ram yesterday, that preview the new model set to be unveiled at this weekend’s Woodward Dream Cruise.

With a yellow bee motif and the word “Rumble” stenciled below the Ram’s shifter dial, it’s safe to assume that the Rumble Bee is based on the Ram Express, a stripped-down Hemi powered version of the Ram 1500. But while the Ram Express is rather basic (vinyl seats are available, for example) the Rumble Bee will likely have some more upscale features to go along with a higher price tag.

    Hard to believe that Dodge (now Ram) pickups were barely a ripple in the market until Chrysler stuck a Cummins in them, either by choice or by chance. The idea of a real truck engine sold and they thought maybe a "big rig" look would go over. Marketing history was made and now people with small penises and low IQ's have a vehicle of their very own.. an Italian truck to hang their pro-American and anti-Obama stickers on.

    Hopefully it has the 6.4L (392ci) Hemi that's in the 2500 for next year, a single cab, 4.10's, and sticky tires.

  • Bd2 Probably too late to do anything about it for the launch, but Kia should plan on doing an extensive refresh of the front fascia (the earlier, the better) as the design looks really ungainly.
  • Namesakeone Since I include SUVs and minivans as trucks, I really cannot think of a brand that is truly truckless. MG maybe?
  • Sobhuza Trooper Subaru, they were almost there with the BRAT. --On a lighter note, where the hell is my Cooper Works Mini truck?
  • Mike Evs do suck, though. I mean, they really do.
  • Steve Biro I don’t care what brand but it needs to be a compact two-door with an ICE, traditional parallel hybrid or both. A manual transmission option would be nice but I don’t expect it - especially with a hybrid. Don’t show me an EV.
