Check out the latest special edition Ram Truck.

The 2019 Ram 1500 Classic Warlock Mojave Sand Package includes a sport performance hood, black-painted 20-inch aluminum wheels and Mojave Sand exterior color.

“The Ram 1500 Classic Warlock continues to prove that value never goes out of style,” Head of Ram Brand, Reid Bigland, said.

“With the addition of the popular Mojave Sand exterior paint option, this truck will continue to resonate positively with buyers.”

To put this model in perspective, the first production Dodge Warlock was introduced in 1976 following a positive response to a pickup originally designed only as an auto show concept vehicle.

The Warlock was a factory-personalised pickup that could “play as hard as it works,” according to the period literature — complete with bucket seats, “fancy wheels, fat tyres,” chrome-plated running boards, real oak sideboards and special gold accent stripes inside and out.

Production ran until 1979.

The 2019 Ram 1500 Warlock is offered with either with the award-winning 3.6-litre Pentastar V6 or the legendary 5.7-litre HEMI V8, both mated to the TorqueFlite eight-speed automatic transmission.

It’s available in 4×2 or 4×4 and Quad Cab or Crew Cab configurations.

The Ram 1500 Classic Warlock is also available in Blue Streak, Bright Silver Metallic, Bright White, Diamond Black, Delmonico Red, Flame Red, Granite Crystal Metallic, Maximum Steel, Pearl White and True Blue.

The 2019 Ram 1500 Classic Warlock Mojave Sand edition is priced from US $35,345 (about $52,000 Aussie dollars).

No word yet from Ram Trucks Australia whether the Mojave will be coming here.

“We don’t comment on future models, but we’ll always consider opportunities that become available to our market,” a spokesman said.
