Still, it’s worth chatting about as it oozes with style courtesy of a sport performance hood, 20-inch black-painted aluminium wheels and that uber-cool Mojave Sand exterior hue.
The 2019 Ram 1500 Warlock debuted earlier this year in the USA, with the FCA-owned brand paying homage to the Warlock’s factory-custom heritage – first produced in 1976, the Warlock pick-up featured bucket seats, fat tyres and real oak sideboards.

The Warlock is available with the choice of two powertrains: a 3.6-litre Pentastar V6 or a 5.7-litre HEMI-powered V8, with both running through a TorqueFlite eight-speed automatic transmission.
Built at the brand’s Warren Truck Assembly Plant in Michigan, the Classic Warlock – available in Quad Cab or Crew Cab configuration – rides on a link-coil rear suspension and features an abundance of storage space including the RamBox.
“The Ram 1500 Classic Warlock continues to prove that value never goes out of style,” said Reid Bigland, the Head of Ram Brand. “With the addition of the popular Mojave Sand exterior paint option, this truck will continue to resonate positively with buyers.”
If the Mojave Sand paint-job doesn’t tickle your fancy, the Warlock can also be optioned with a bunch of other colours: Blue Streak, Bright Silver Metallic, Bright White, Diamond Black, Delmonico Red, Flame Red, Granite Crystal Metallic, Maximum Steel, Pearl White and True Blue.
