2019 Dodge Ram 1500 Classic Warlock | Mississauga, Brampton
As the saying goes, what is old is new again. Nostalgia has a powerful draw and FCA responds to what it thinks its customers want. Hence, Ram’s latest blast-from-the past, the 2019 Ram 1500 Classic Warlock. Also popular is anything that sounds a little edgy and envelope pushing, right Toronto and Barrie?
"The Ram 1500 Classic Warlock is proof positive that value never goes out of style," said Head of Ram Brand, Reid Bigland. "With its sinister monochromatic exterior, award-winning interior and great price, this mean-machine is certain to resonate positively with consumers."
The Dodge Warlock was originally unveiled in the 1970s as a reaction to public praise over an auto show concept vehicle. The Warlock, produced from 1976-1979, personalized a pickup right in the factory, complete with bucket seats, “fancy wheels”, “fat tires”, chrome running boards, real oak sideboards and special gold accents inside and out.
The 2019 version of the Warlock offers a black grille with highlighted Ram lettering, front and rear powder coated bumpers, 1-inch factory lift, 20-inch semi-gloss black aluminum wheels, black wheel flares, LED fog lamps, projector headlamps with dark bezels, LED rear tail lamps, black badging, tow hooks, special hood decals, heavy duty rear shocks and an optional Sport hood.
Inside the Warlock are standard Diesel Grey cloth seats, leather-wrapped steering wheel, overhead console, auto-dimming rear-view mirror and 7-inch cluster display. If you want, you can get optional bucket seats or an 8.4-inch Uconnect touchscreen with navigation. Also optional are black side-steps and a spray-in bedliner.
For engines, you can choose from the award-winning 3.6-litre Pentastar V6, 305 HP, 269 lb-ft of torque, or the legendary 5.7-litre HEMI® V-8 engine with 395 HP and 410 lb-ft of torque. Both feature the TorqueFlite eight-speed automatic transmission in 4x2, 4x4, Quad Cab or Crew Cab configurations.
All this comes with Ram’s reputation for tough, hard-working, yet comfortable trucks. Ram sets the bar pretty high:
