Engine

Ram went for a 5.7 liter HEMI, capable of a total output of 395 horsepower. The engine has been paired with an 8-speed automatic transmission.

As expected the engine has also been covered with a graphic pattern to match the interior and exterior of the car.2013-Ram-1500-Rumble-Bee-Concept-indoors-B

Performance

For the anniversary edition, Ram decided to lower the truck by 2 inches for improved stability. The powerful engine, and upgraded suspensions make the truck more stable.

Exterior

The anniversary edition comes in a Drone yellow paint with matte finish and black trim lines.

Ram replaced the stock wheels, upgrading them from a 22 to 24 inches and painted them in gloss black. Black paint has been applied as well on the hood vents, the grille, fuel door and tailpipes.

Interior

The interior of the truck shares the same color tone as the exterior. Drone yellow and black has been used for the leather sport seats with light grey elements.

In the center, between the driver and front passenger, the design team added a real bee encased in amber and integrated into a rotating shifter that lights up a honeycomb pattern.2013-Ram-1500-Rumble-Bee-Concept-up-front-C

Loud

The Chrysler expressed its desire to design an anniversary edition Rumble Bee by creating a model and cover it in a Drone Yellow and black theme. Other notable changes can be observed under the hood.

The 2013 Ram 1500 Rumble Bee Concept can be extremely loud due to its exhaust system. The new engine offers raw power and the design team added a control button that can make the exhaust cutouts to be bypassed which increase the noise level.
