Ram is bringing back the Warlock nameplate which was used by Dodge from 1976 to 1979.
Introduced at the Toronto Auto Show, the second coming of the Dodge Warlock is actually a special edition 2019 Ram 1500 SLT which will be available in a few months.
Officially called the 2019 Ram 1500 Classic Warlock, it features powder-coated front and rear bumpers, a unique grille with bold RAM lettering and a 1-inch lift on the suspension. An available sport hood with a similar design to the Jeep Grand Cherokee SRT or Dodge Durango SRT is also on the menu.
The original Dodge Warlock was introduced in 1976 and sold until 1979. It featured gold wheels and trim, chrome running boards, bucket seats, real oak sideboards and beefier tires.
The new Ram 1500 Classic Warlock looks nothing like the original model and that’s a bit of a shame. We’re thinking Ram’s new pickup would have looked pretty good in gold and black.
In any case, different configurations are available for wannabe Warlock owners. You can get it as a 4×4 Quad Cab with a 6’4″ cargo box or a Crew Cab 4×4 with a 5’7″ cargo box. The base engine is a Pentastar 3.6-liter V6 with 305 horsepower and 269 pound-feet of torque, but you can also opt for a 5.7-liter HEMI V8 with 395 horsepower and 410 pound-feet of torque.
“The Ram Classic 1500 Warlock is proof positive that value never goes out of style,” said Reid Bigland, President and CEO, FCA Canada. “With its sinister monochromatic exterior, award winning interior and great price, this mean machine is certain to resonate.”
The 2019 Ram 1500 Classic Warlock starts at $51,715 with the Pentastar V6 and $53,615 with the HEMI. First models will start to arrive in March.
