It was a long time ago when Fiat CEO Sergio Marchionne announced 2019 Dodge SRT Barracuda, as a new car under the famous name and attractive design. However, when Marchionne said that, it was 2013, and he promised that the car will look like the Barracuda and has a unique design. Fans, on the other hand, said that it is not a real Barracuda and this car should not be called like that in any circumstances, explaining this with numerous changes in the design of the car. In 2013 even the manufacturer has not wanted to use that name, so we were confused which part will be Barracuda actually. Even the design and shape of the car is a big question. As the first Barracuda made in 70’s firstly has a muscle design, then became a classic European style car and then was been closer to Formula 1. So, not is a question which of those designs manufacturer will use. The only thing which is known is that it will have an engine stronger than 350 horsepower under the hood.
There are big chances that manufacturer will adopt “G” platform, but the modular version of it this time, so the car will be more like Alfa Romeo, Dodge, and Maserati, but with unique shape and details. On the other hand, a muscle car like 2019 Dodge SRT Barracuda tends to simply have to be large and massive, more like Camaro or Mustang. That implies a strong engine planned to be found under the hood of the car. It is for sure that it will have a modern styling, closer to 1999 Dodge Charger Concept, but smaller than current Challenger. The manufacturer has also promised a classic “Barracuda cues” over the modern and stylized shape with many details and body parts made for testing. It is for sure that even the manufacturer is not sure how the new Barracuda will really look like or if it will be closer to Hellcat Challenger or not. They also have not confirmed if the car will be a coupe or a convertible or if the manufacturer will offer both.
As we said, 2019 Dodge SRT Barracuda will have a strong and fast engine and there are high chances that it will be a 5.7-liter Hemi twin-turbo six-cylinder engine with 392 horsepower or even more. There are also chances that manufacturer will offer an electric engine, with instant-on acceleration, but that is still not confirmed.
2019 Dodge SRT Barracuda Release Date and Price
Even though the manufacturer announced this new model in 2012, it was missing from the 2014 five year plan, so we were not sure if they will make it at the end. Now, they confirmed the possibility of having 2019 Dodge SRT Barracuda, or a version which will be offered in 2023.
