The Warlock name was originally used on a line of factory custom trucks back in the ’70s, and the modern version gets some of the same design cues. The wooden rails along the edge of the bed are gone, as are the gold pinstripes. But the 2019 model will get a black paint scheme and a lift, along with a flared hood, black wheels, and some unique badging.
Overall, the effect gives the already sharp pickup a sinister vibe, and we like it. Notably, all Warlocks will be based on the 2018 RAM 1500, not the newly refreshed 2019 truck.
Now, while the redesigned 2019 RAM 1500 has been generating tons of positive press for its robust powertrains, fantastic ride quality, and trick features like the new split tailgate, previous models were hardly underwhelming rigs. Just check out what Mike Musto had to say about the interior of the 2017 Night Edition he tested a while back:
Inside the RAM you’ll find a cabin that’s one of the nicest in the business. It’s well designed, ergonomically comfortable, and a joy to be in for extended drives, as it truly caters to the driver. The main dash houses large analog gauges with a 7-inch color display that allows one to customize the truck’s on-board information. When it comes to navigation, audio, hands-free calling and apps, Uconnect 8.4 with its 8.4-inch touchscreen is arguably one of the most intuitive systems in the business .
He also praised the fact that there’s loads of storage, and highlighted little details, like well-placed LED lighting, and convenient cell phone storage, which make it clear that the designers really thought this truck through.
Fortunately, if you like the looks of the Warlock, you don’t have to track down any eye of newt, cast any spells, or risk summoning a spirit. All you have to do is pay a visit to your local AutoNation Dodge dealer! Look for it to start arriving in showrooms late next month.
