    Warlock History
    In 1976, the first production Dodge Warlock was introduced following the public's positive response to a pickup originally designed as an auto show concept vehicle. The Warlock was a factory-personalized pickup that could "play as hard as it works," according to the period literature, complete with bucket seats, "fancy wheels, fat tires," chrome-plated running boards, real oak sideboards and special gold accent stripes inside and out. Production ran until 1979.
     
    Ram 1500 Classic
    The 2019 Ram 1500 Classic boasts numerous segment-exclusive features in areas most important to truck buyers. Outstanding ride and handling is accomplished via a unique link-coil rear suspension. Other features, such as RamBox bedside storage, hidden bins and a flat-load floor, offer unique solutions for cargo. New "Classic" badging is located on the front fenders.
     
    The 2019 Ram 1500 Classic Warlock will be produced at the Warren Truck Assembly Plant (Warren, Michigan), which has built more than 12.5 million trucks since it started operations in 1938.

    For a 10 yr old truck, it still looks good...

    Agree, this is a better looking truck than the ugly mess of the all new Chevrolet truck.

    I like that they are continuing to update the older truck.  Might not be a terrible strategy going forward with the way truck prices are going. 

    Except the prices are minimally lower.  Believe me, I have left a lot of saliva on Ram door glasses lately.

    I like the fact that Dodge has not forgotten their past glories.  I wish it were available in a regular cab, short bed though, like the old one.  I would love that, even if they didn't spend the money to make it a stepside like the original.

    The cheapest I was able to price a new Ram 1500 was about $4k more.  Even then it didn't have heated seats.

    @ocnblu I missed the word "comparable"

    Well I am surprised how close they are in price, I mean the Classic is still nice, but obsolete.  The ones I'm seeing are only about $1k diff in MSRP, I am sure incentives are higher on the Classic.

    It's the option packages. I know you equip your vehicles fairly basic.  You get more options in the Classic than you do in the New for the same price.  The smaller/base uConnect is notably bad, so I won't consider any FCA vehicle that has it.  The Warlock comes standard with the 8.4 uConnect.
