The Ram 1500 Rumble Bee Concept Truck
On August 17, 2013, Ram Trucks revealed the Ram 1500 Rumble Bee, a concept truck inspired by the late ‘60s-era Dodge Super Bees. Given the positive reaction RamZone readers had to this truck and our coverage of it, we thought we’d remind you of other concept trucks recently developed by the Ram Trucks brand and recently featured on RamZone.
Our look back at past concept trucks begins with the Ram “Long-Hauler” concept, a Ram 5500 Chassis Cab with a total fuel capacity of 170 gallons for extreme driving range.
The Ram “Long-Hauler” Concept
From the RamZone “Long Hauler” blog post (where you’ll find much more information): “The Long Hauler is equipped with the legendary Cummins Turbo Diesel engine, a tough six-speed Aisin AS68RC automatic transmission, four-wheel-drive transfer case and 4.88 Dana 110 axle with dual rear wheels. The net effect is a Class 5 pickup truck with a 37,500-lb. Gross Combined Weight Rating (GCWR).”
The Urban Ram Concept Truck
We brought the Urban Ram to the 2012 SEMA Show in Las Vegas in order to show off the potential for customization that exists in every Ram Truck that rolls off our assembly lines. The Urban Ram, built from the base of the 2013, takes advantage of authentic parts and accessories available from Mopar, including a Mopar performance handling kit, a Mopar cold-air intake and Mopar performance dual exhaust with chrome tips.

Ram Power Wagon “Man of Steel” Edition
With the “Man of Steel” Power Wagon, Ram Trucks created a truck worthy of superhero status. This concept truck features a custom red inlaid grille and Mopar lift in addition to iconic “S” badging in place of traditional Ram Trucks badging.

Ram Social Media Concept Truck
This unique concept vehicle was specially outfitted by Ram Trucks to provide a platform where guests to the 2012 New York International Auto Show could interact with their social media feeds. Touch screens in the side windows and other high-tech features allowed show-goers to connect with the Web directly from the Ram Trucks display on the show floor at Jacob Javits Center.
