1977 Dodge D100 Warlock

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 1500 Classic Warlock will be produced at the Warren (Mich.) Truck Assembly Plant, which has built more than 12.5 million trucks since it started operations in 1938.

“The new Ram 1500 makes a bold statement with its overall design, functionality, lighter weight and notable efficiency for a full-size pickup,” Ron Cogan, editor and publisher of Green Car Journal and greencarjournal.com, said. “Plus, its use of electrification through eTorque mild hybrid technology in both the 3.6-liter V-6 and 5.7-liter HEMI® V-8 is compelling in today’s pickup market. It is clearly a deserving winner of the title 2019 Green Truck of the Year.”
