If you like the look of blackened badass trucks but you do not want to shell out a lot of money for an uncompromising off-roader, Fiat Chrysler Automobiles (FCA) has a truck for you. The FCA announced the 2019 Ram 1500 Classic Warlock, a special edition pickup truck designed to attract the same Chrysler buyers with the Dodge D10 Warlock from 1976 to 1979. As in the 1976 version, the Warlock 2019 focuses on appearance leaving only a touch of additional off-road capabilities.
"The Ram 1500 Classic Warlock is the definitive proof that value for money never goes out of style," said Reid Bigland, director of Ram Brand, FCA. "With its sinister monochromatic exterior, award-winning interior and low price, this mean machine will convince consumers."
That's why the "sinister" style is now the target of what Chrysler called "adult toy" for "fun trucking" in the 1970s (see below).
The Warlock Special Edition 2019 is only available with the previous generation Ram 1500 Classic 2019 version, but not with the redesigned Ram 1500 introduced for this model year. As buyer demand for Ram vans exceeded supply, Ram continued to manage the production line of earlier versions as well as the new redesigned truck manufacturing facility. If you want a warlock, you have to stick to the latest generation Ram 1500 Ram, called Classic.
Signature details on the new Ram Warlock include huge R-A-M lettering on the front grille, powder-coated bumpers on the front and rear, a 1-inch lift and Warlock decals. You can also order an optional Sport Hood. The truck will be delivered with 20-inch semi-gloss black aluminum wheels, LED fog lights, dark bezel headlamps, LED taillights, tow hooks and heavy duty rear shocks. Shock absorbers and more clearance in inches could help off-road travel, but if you plan to drive in thick, sticky areas, you'll have to choose freely from the FCA options list or save money for products. derivatives.
The Warlock comes standard with the luxury group of the Ram 1500 Classic. You'll have a leather-wrapped steering wheel, auto-dimming rear view mirror, overhead console, 7-inch display, LED bed lighting and fold-down electric mirrors, all without checking one option – a budget-exploder easy with trucks. Diesel gray fabric seats and ParkSense rear park assist are also standard features.
Power plant choices include the 360-horsepower 360-horsepower 3.6-liter Pentastar V-6 or the 395-hp 5.7-liter Hemi V8. Both engines are coupled to an eight-speed automatic transmission. You can choose the 4 × 2 (really?) Or the 4 × 4 with 4-door bodies with quad or double cab. If you choose the Crew Cab version (larger rear doors and more seating), you are limited to a 5-foot-7 truck case.
Vehicles from special editions often come in one or two colors, but FCA discovered the paint cans. You have a choice of Blue Streak, Bright Silver Metallic, Bright White, Black Diamond, Delmonico Red, Flame Red, Crystal Metallic Granite, Maximum Steel, Pearl White and True Blue. It's a stylish edition, even if some color choices are not very good on the "sinister Warlock" counter.
According to the FCA, the Ram 1500 Classic Warlock 2019 will be available from the end of the first quarter of the year. The Warlord's starting price, including destination fees, will be $ 37,040.
Beginning of work in the 1970s when "motorized wheelbarrows" turned into "fun trucking"
The Warlock Macho Power Wagon is one of three vehicles of what Chrysler Corporation calls its range of "adult toys". time has said, "People make a personal statement about themselves with the vehicle that they drive. And we think our adult toys help them make this statement: fun trucking. "
"Dodge Macho units may be the answer sought by buyers who are looking for different ways to express their love of vehicles and driving," continued Imber. "They are" tough "and athletic on the street and off-road."
Imber acknowledged that the warlock was not reserved for men, despite the model designator "Macho". He noted that women also drove trucks, which was one of three major changes in the trucking market at that time. The other two teams were the growing interest in 4 × 4 vehicles for a range of leisure activities and the transition to personal-use trucks, from the traditional view that a van was a "motorized wheelbarrow" .
