Although Challenger’s sales increased in 2015, once the new generation of muscle cars was launched, sales began to decline in 2016 and 2017. This is mainly due to the old car. It was unveiled in 2006 and released on the market in 2007, so it has more than a decade at this point. A successor is definitely in the works, but Dodge has not said all about it on this. However, it seems that the new model could be released as a 2019 Dodge Barracuda and that it can absolutely nothing in common with the current car.
2019 Dodge Barracuda Concept
The new Barracuda will be totally different from the older generation. Most new muscle cars are light and modern, so we can expect to see the former Barracuda release some weight. We know that the new 2019 Dodge Barracuda will probably be built on the same platform as the Challenger. Although it may be a little smaller. Nevertheless, it will have a sportier and more curious look. Most likely, the backlighting will offer a unique frame design. Some rumors say that the new Dodge Barracuda will be available with a convertible variant. Although we are not sure.
The interior will also change a lot. We will see a totally different and new infotainment system. Automatic switches for windows and doors and a better security package. It will have an overall sporty interior design with red seats and eminent seams. There will be a new dashboard with many new features.
2019 Dodge Barracuda Powertrains
We believe that Dodge will adapt to the new ‘Cuda with a V6 double turbine engine, rather than clinging to the old’ Hemi 5.7 V8; Of course, we still have no power figures, but it is expected to be less than 392 BHP, but we also talk about a small electric motor or a turbo to give an almost instantaneous acceleration . It was expected to see the engine hooked up to a multi-speed automatic transmission, only to help emissions, so it will more than likely be an 8-speed (at minimum) auto.
Given Dodge’s current plans, we do not expect to see the Dodge Barracuda 2019 until 2019; some rumors suggest that parts have been manufactured for testing and this is as far as possible. That said, two years is a short time scale in the automotive world, so we expect that there has been a lot more going on behind the scenes that has not yet been disclosed.
