The 2019 Ram 1500 is an all-new pickup. The 2019 Ram 1500 Classic is not.
It’s the last generation truck that Ram’s kept in production to bolster sales at a lower price point than the new model.
But just because it’s old doesn’t mean it's been left for dead. In fact, Ram has unveiled a new package for the Classic that resurrects a special edition from the late 1970s.
It’s called the Warlock, and it features a black Ram Rebel-style grille, black 20-inch wheels, black bumpers, black fender flares, black tow hooks…you get the picture. It also includes a heavy duty rear suspension and a 1-inch lift kit, premium interior touches and bedside Warlock badging.
What it doesn’t have are the original’s gold wheels, pinstripes or oak bed racks – although it wouldn’t be too much of a stretch to add those yourself. The package is also only offered on Quad and Crew cab models, while the true classic was just a two-door.
Warlocks are available in a variety of colors that aren't black and prices start at $37,040. They can be ordered with either a 4x2 or 4x4 drivetrain and 3.6-liter V6 or 5.7-liter Hemi V8.
Unfortunately, you still can't get a Hellcat V8 in the Ram 1500, but it sure would be perfect for a Warlock.
