After a long time, a new 2019 Dodge Barracuda seems to be getting ready to rock the streets. The previous version of Dodge Barracuda was launched in 2006. So it has been more than a decade now and fans from all over the world are pretty excited for the new launch. Though Dodge is yet to speak out on this matter, the rumors are piling up very fast.
2019 Dodge Barracuda – Exterior and Interior Design
The new Barracuda will be totally different from the older generation. Most of the new muscle cars are light and modern looking so we can expect to see the older Barracuda shed off some weight. We know the new 2019 Dodge Barracuda will most probably be built on the same platform as the Challenger. Though it might be a little smaller in size. None the less it is going to have a more sporty and curvy look. Most probably the backlight will sport a single frame design. Some rumors say that the new Dodge Barracuda will be available with a convertible variant. Though we are not sure about that.
The interior is also going to change a lot. We will see a totally different and new infotainment system. Automatic switches for the windows and doors and a better security package. It will have an overall sporty looking interior design with red seats and prominent stitchings. It is going to sport a totally new dashboard with lots of new features.
2019 Dodge Barracuda – Powertrain
There is a lot of speculation surrounding the engine. It will surely be a rear wheel drive model. Most probably it is going to get a 3.0-litre turbocharged v6 engine. This will generate around 350 hp and 380 lb-ft of torque. The engine will work better with better accessories and can reach a top speed of 160 mph. Dodge will most probably introduce a higher end model with more power like the SRT. That will sport a twin turbo v8 engine which will produce 500 hp and 540 lb-ft of torque. Rumors suggest that the Dodge Barracuda will have an 8-speed manual gear box for better control and enthusiast driving but it will also offer an auto transmission model. No matter what it will be more powerful than the older Hemi engines.
2019 Dodge Barracuda – Price and Expected Release Date
There has been no official statement from Dodge about the release date. Though we can expect it to be launched in the second quarter of 2019. Rumors suggest that Dodge is working on a prototype. They will have roughly 2 years to start the production line or at least launch the product.
The price is yet to be confirmed but with all the things in mind, it can cost anywhere around $40,000 to $70,000 for the higher end model. The price can go up or down but you can expect it to stay around that price bracket. The convertible model can cost you an extra 5-10,000 dollars. Some people speculate that the model might not even be called a Dodge Barracuda which will be a great disappointment. Though when the car will launch it will have close to no resemblance of the old Dodge Barracuda. So it is more likely for Dodge to call it Dodge Avenger. It’s a long wait before we can surely know.
