DODGE tragics will remember the Warlock pick-up, replete with bucket seats, fat tyres and real oak sideboards, which was first produced back in 1976.
Well, Ram has paid homage to this factory-custom icon by unveiling the 2019 Ram 1500 Classic Warlock for the American market.

With a name that wouldn’t be out of place in a fantasy novel, the Warlock’s two engine options – the 3.6-litre Pentastar V6 or the 5.7-litre HEMI V8 – will both run through a TorqueFlite eight-speed automatic.
The Warlock – available in 4x2 or 4x4 and in Quad Cab or Crew Cab configurations – will start at US$35,345 and features RAM lettering plastered across the black grille, 20-inch wheels, power-coated bumpers (front and rear), a one-inch factory lift, black wheel flares, LED fogs, LED rear tail-lights, tow hooks and custom decals. A Sport hood is an option.
Standard kit also includes ParkSense rear park assist, a leather-wrapped steering wheel, an auto-dimming rear-view mirror, an overhead console, 7.0-inch cluster display, LED bed lighting and power foldaway mirrors.

Ticking an options list can net buyers heated bench/bucket seats, an 8.4-inch Uconnect touchscreen, black side steps and a spray-in bedliner.
“The Ram 1500 Classic Warlock is proof that value never goes out of style,” said Reid Bigland, Head of Ram Brand, FCA. “With its sinister monochromatic exterior, award-winning interior and great price, this mean machine is certain to resonate positively with consumers.”
