Ram Goes Retro
Ram Truck recently unveiled a gem at the 2019 Chicago Auto Show – the 2019 Ram 1500 Classic Warlock Special Edition. This particular edition is a callback to the original Warlock pickups of the 1970s. It offers prospective buyers a well-equipped, pseudo-customized pickup with plenty of style, capability, and value for those looking to buy a menacing truck without breaking the bank.
Reid Bigland, head of Ram Brand, FCA, is excited to deliver the latest Ram truck tinged with nostalgia. “The Ram 1500 Classic Warlock is proof positive that value never goes out of style. With its sinister monochromatic exterior, award-winning interior and great price, this mean machine is certain to resonate positively with consumers,” he said.
Speaking of sinister style, the 2019 Ram 1500 Classic Warlock offers a black grille with a bold RAM badge, front and rear powder coated bumpers, a one-inch factory lift, 20-inch semi-gloss black aluminum wheels, and LED fog lamps. Other features lending a sinister look include black badging, tow hooks, hood decals, an original Sport hood, projector headlamps with dark bezels, and heavy-duty rear shocks. Warlock decals on the side of the truck bed round out this special edition pickup. Buyers can also add an 8.4-inch Uconnect touchscreen, a spray-in bed liner, and a black side step.
Under the hood of the Warlock consumers have two different options to choose from, there’s the standard (and award-winning) 3.6-liter Pentastar V6 engine that’s capable of generating 305 horsepower and 269 lb-ft of torque. Those looking for more power can opt for the legendary 5.7-liter HEMI V8 engine that delivers 395 horsepower and 410 lb-ft of torque. Both engines are mated to the brand’s latest TorqueFlite eight-speed automatic transmission, whether they be 4×2 or 4×4. Quad Cab or Crew Cab are the two bed configurations available.
Buyers have plenty of exterior paint colors to choose from when it comes to the 2019 Ram 1500 Classic Warlock. There’s Blue Streak, Bright Silver Metallic, Bright White, Diamond Black, Delmonico Red, Flame Red, Granite Crystal Metallic, Maximum Steel, Pearl White, and True Blue – all colors will be accented by the menacing features we mentioned earlier. The 2019 Ram 1500 Classic Warlock will be hitting dealership lots at the end of the first quarter of 2019, with a starting MSRP of $35,345 (plus destination fee).
