For the past several weeks, new 2019 Ram 1500 Classic Warlock models have been arriving on dealer lots. We were at the Canadian International Auto Show in Toronto, Ontario earlier this year when the Ram brand launched the new truck. Now, the public can see them for themselves.
The Warlock pays homage to the original Warlock pickups of the 1970s and offers buyers a well-equipped, factory-customized truck with a unique style, capability and value. The 2019 Ram 1500 Classic Warlock features a black grille with bold R-A-M lettering, 20-inch semi-gloss black aluminum wheels, front and rear powder coated bumpers, 1-in. factory lift, black wheel flares, LED fog lamps, projector headlamps with dark bezels, LED rear tail lamps, black badging, tow hooks, unique hood decals, heavy-duty rear shocks, and an optional Sport hood. Warlock decals on the bedsides round out the package.
Standard on the Warlock package is Diesel Grey cloth seating, ParkSense rear park assist and Ram 1500 Classic’s Luxury Group that includes a leather-wrapped steering wheel, auto-dimming rearview mirror, overhead console, 7-inch cluster display, LED bed lighting and power foldaway mirrors. Customers can also add a heated bench or bucket seats, an 8.4-inch Uconnect touchscreen with navigation, black side steps, and a spray-in bed liner.
The Warlock is available with either with the award-winning 3.6-liter Pentastar V-6 (305 horsepower/269 lb.-ft. of torque) or the legendary 5.7-liter HEMI® V-8 engine (395 horsepower/410 lb.-ft. of torque), both mated to the TorqueFlite eight-speed automatic transmission, 4×2 or 4×4, Quad Cab or Crew Cab (5-ft. 7-in. bed only) configurations.
The Ram 1500 Classic Warlock is available in Blue Streak, Bright Silver Metallic, Bright White, Diamond Black, Delmonico Red, Flame Red, Granite Crystal Metallic, Maximum Steel, Pearl White, and True Blue.
So, if you are a fan of the 4th generation Ram 1500 Rebel (DS) looks and need an affordable truck, this package might be just what you are looking for. Warlock pricing starts at $35,345, not including $1,695 destination.
