Since 1981, the Dodge Ram pickup, now known as the Ram pickup has been a popular full-size contender in the competitive North American pickup truck market. Of course, to differentiate it, Dodge, and later, Ram, have released special editions from time to time. This is one of those special editions that came during the third generation, a 2005 Dodge Ram 1500 Rumblebee. It’s said that only 5,174 were produced in 2005, out of less than 10,000 produced overall. With just 11,000 reported miles, this Rumblebee makes for one fine addition to your garage.
The Rumblebee Group package brings a Solar Yellow paint job to this 2005 Dodge Ram 1500 Rumblebee, which rolls on 20-inch aluminum polished wheels, and comes with the Sport Appearance Group package ticked off as well. Other Rumblebee accoutrements include lower body cladding and hood scoop. As you can see from the photos, this is a 2-door regular cab short box pickup – the only body style which was offered under the Rumblebee special edition. The large, shiny wheels, plus the shortened stance, and bulbous snout all come together to make something truly distinctive on the roads, and will turn many heads as you cruise along in a rumbly fashion, exhaust rakishly exiting at the rear right hand side of the truck, right beneath the Rumblebee graphics. This truck is also said to be equipped with the 26G SLT Customer Preferred Package. The interior of this 2005 Dodge Ram 1500 Rumblebee also sees some special edition treatment in the form of the Dark Slate Gray interior with yellow accents and Rumblebee motifs on the door cards. Occupants sit on seats trimmed in premium cloth, and there’s some decent tech, including multifunction steering, cruise control, air conditioning, power door locks, power windows, and power mirrors.
What rumbles beneath the hood of this 2005 Dodge Ram 1500 Rumblebee? Why, it’s the popular 5.7L Hemi V8 that delivers a very useful 345hp and 375lb-ft to all four wheels via a 5-speed automatic transmission. The seller reports that an aftermarket cold air intake has been fitted, and pictures show it to be a K&N unit.
