New Dodge pickup

Well, a new grill anyway.
It's called Warlock.
You'd think they would look up the definition.
ORIGIN Old English wǣrloga‘traitor, scoundrel, monster’, also ‘the Devil’, from wǣr‘covenant’ + an element related to lēogan ‘belie, deny’. From its application to the Devil, the word was transferred in Middle English to a person in league with the Devil, and hence a sorcerer. It was chiefly Scots until given wider currency by Sir Walter Scott.

"Warlock" is an old Dodge name, used for the 2WD counterpart to the Power Wagon of the 1970's. I doubt that potential buyers would have any issue with the meaning of the name (which despite the origin is probably for most people more strongly associated with a sorcerer than specifically a traitor), and it goes with the "Demon"... also an old Dodge name and currently used for a high-power version of the Challenger.

This time around, a Warlock can be 2WD or 4WD. The "Power Wagon" name would be more marketable, but I suspect that FCA is reserving that for a more deserving (extreme) 4WD.

Those old Dodge trucks were about as stylish as a cardboard box.

Growing up in the mountains of Colorado back in the 1960's and 70's, an old Dodge Power Wagon with an A-frame snow plow mounted on the front was a welcome sight after a heavy snow. The County Road & Bridge crew would keep the main mail delivery routes and school bus routes open, then ranchers with Power Wagon snow plows would open up most of the other roads and driveways for the elderly. It was just the neighborly thing to do back then.

Wish I would have had this information last month when I bought my new 2019 Ram
It looks like a great tow vehicle especially for boondocking .

I'll go ahead and pick nits here, but there is no Dodge pickup. Ram was spun off as it's own brand in 2010 under Chrysler, now Fiat-Chrysler. So it's a new Fiat Chrysler pickup.

It's also only available as a trim level on the RAM Classic--hardly a new truck. I do recall reading that the Classic is really helping RAM flesh out their sales and dealerships are loving them...for now: https://www.autonews.com/classicram. Good on FCA for squeezing every last penny out of their existing infrastructure.

and like other Rams, it probably does not have a full size spare.

I'm glad some people can care about trucks and cars. I think I lost interest about 1976.
