    I got a 2019 Classic Warlock full load (stock Suspension suspension and tires) for 40000$ Canadian (30000$ US). In Canada, they give you 25% off on regular price so it’s very interesting. Only down side is gas... with winter tires = 20.5 L/100km (11.5MPG) and with summer tires 18.5 L/100km (12.5MPG)...it’s really

    I just bought a Classic two days ago. I wanted the fifth gen styling, but the classic was marked off $11K and it didn't make sense to buy anything else

    I went and looked at them when my dealership bribed me with a $50 Amazon gift card to come test drive something. It's different. But in any measure that I care about? Nope. The incremental improvements are of no value to me in the slightest. While giving up the aesthetics I like? Yup. I didn't even bother to drive it and drove a Grand Cherokee instead.

    40k plus taxes for the warlock? That's a pretty good deal. Is it a hemi? All the warlocks I see here are all 3.6 pentastar motors.

    Is that the mileage you're getting? 20.5Lwinter and 18.5L summer?

    I can't agree with you more, the air on the Lariat does suck, but then what do you expect, that's a Ford, , Ram makes the Laramie.....

    Because it is what they want?
    Egads, what a novel concept, folks spending their money on things they actually want.

    Yes, 40000$ plus 15% taxes. I got the V6 and it’s full load with the console in the middle. Only thing is that it have the RA2 5 inches radio (Uconnect but no nav).

    As for the gas, it suck pretty bad. My 2017 Jeep Wrangler Unlimited with a 2.5 inch lift and 35 inch tires was doing better then that. But the Ram is way more comfortable

    O well , don't know what they showed you but if you didn't drive it you can't know how they handle. I don't know if you haul loads or pull heavy trailers with your truck or if you just use it as a commuter vehicle . But if you pull trailers or haul loads my 2019 new from the ground up truck will outperform your truck and all other Gen 4 1500 Rams. It has to do with the redesigned drivetrain,suspension and strongest frame of any previous Ram 1500. The Hemi with the eight speed transmission hooked to the 392 differential with e-locker helps Cary the load. O and the ride and Handeling of the New Ram 1500 unloaded also outperforms the 4th gen with a smoother and way much quieter ride. I'm not just saying this without being able to back it up from experience because I had a 2010 Laramie and a 2013 Loaded Limited and a 2015 Loaded Laramie so I know the difference in ride and handling.

    Without disputing any of that, again I don't care. It apparently makes you happy to constantly chase incremental upgrades. Enjoy. I am not caught up in that. There'll be something even more more betterer in a few years and you can then chase that one. I'll probably still be in my truck has exactly what I want without a lot of the stuff the new ones do that I don't.

    The next check I write will probably be for a mid-engine Corvette. That's something interesting. Give them 4-5 years to figure out where the inevitable bugs are and that fun-to-dollar ratio will be excellent.
