Inspired by the Dodge Super Bee (an imitation of Plymouth’s Road Runner, sharing the same mid-sized “B” body), the Dodge Ram Rumble Bee was made during 2004 and 2005 in limited numbers; it had a standard Hemi, 3.92:1 rear end, and “bee stripe” with Scat Pack logos. Primarily an appearance package, the roughly 8,700 Rumble Bees had no added performance over similar Rams. It appears that the Rumble Bee will return, but with at least one added feature and possibly more extensive graphics than the original. These images were released by Ram Truck today, and the concept itself will appear at 10 am on August 17 at the Woodward Dream Cruise. The Rumble button is a new touch, and could indicate a sport mode for the transmission, a subsonic engine note augmenter, an active subwoofer or... join the discussion to speculate.

Those with melissophobia will see that "selector" and have the wits scared out of them.

Hmm... maybe its time to upgrade my 05 Rumble Bee :)

Wonder what engine choice? I hope they stepped it up some vs the "older" Bee's.

To be fair, besides the Ford Tremor, what other hot rod truck does Ford produce? I too, am not looking forward to another appearance package, but that is the current state of things. Chrysler is not going to sink money into niche vehicles, unless they are SRT. To address the SRT-10 comment, Gilles said they will never put the V10 in anything else, but the Viper.

Witht the Hellcat, you don't really need the V10. It'll be quite near the Viper output, I am guessing, based on Allpar.com rumors. Then you'll have that rumbly hemi v8 sound, tope of with a SC whine. Sweet stuff.

I just used the V10 as an example,the hellcat would be fine.So a hellcat SRT truck would be a niche vehicle,great.Now produce it.
The rumble bee is a very nice looking truck,but it is castrated.I own a 09 SRT8 Superbee charger and the rumble bee needs an upgrade similar to the Superbee.

Put some sting in that bee.

I guess, technically, the Tremor is a "hot-rod" truck. To me, with the twin-turbo and the stickers, it's more of a "tuner" truck.

Grab a $25K 1500 short-bed Tradesman and throw some nice wheels on it. Done. (But that's me.)

We have R/T which beats up on Tremor and Express that beats up on Tremor.

If you want to beat up on a Raptor, order the Ram Runner parts from Mopar Performance.

In other words, what is there "to do again"? The Tremor is more stickers than anything anyway.

The Warlock wasn't really a "Hot Rod" either.

Or a RCSB Express, which they already make. How about the R/T.

It is highly unlikely that they would introduce the Hellcat on the Rumble Bee, correct? It's too early? As far as we know, it will be introduced on the Challenger in early '14, yes?

But since it's a concept, it could have any engine, like the Viper V10 (See Charger Juiced), the Hellcat, the SRT 6.4, or "Just" the HD 6.4.

You make it look like I am a Ford fan,,WRONG.I would just like some substance to go along with the appearance.To me the Warlock was a hot rod.You could option it out very similar to the Little Red.
