A new Rumble Bee is on the way and it will be equipped with Chrysler’s 8-speed automatic and sticky rubber.

While most automakers are gearing up for Frankfurt next month, the domestics are getting ready for a little Detroit event called the Woodward Dream Cruise.

On August 17th, Ram Trucks will have something special for patrons of Woodward – a brand new sport truck to take on the Ford F-150 Tremor.

The new Rumble Bee will come with Chrysler’s eight-speed auto box and Eagle F1 tires. The exhaust note looks to be a selectable item on the truck, with Rumble buttons placed below the gear selector knob.

Expect the Rumble Bee to be a regular cab, short box affair, slotting it right beside Ford’s new effort to take money from young guys looking for a pickup-based toy.

No word yet on engines, but here’s to hoping there is a massive HEMI V8 under the hood.
