Days when pony cars used to rule the roads might be long gone, but at least we still get a taste of what things would look like if… One of the cars which spent most of this time in deep slumber is Barracuda. Plymouth badge doesn’t exist anymore, that is true, but SRT division plans to tamper with new age Barracuda from now on. This, however, means that another legend, Dodge Challenger will lose its spot under the sun. Well, that’s life sometimes. The new 2016 Dodge Barracuda is a modern new age car with retro badge which used to be much sought for in decades past. Will nostalgia be their main marketing advantage, or will they create really capable car, remains to be seen.

2016 Dodge Barracuda redesign

The new Dodge Barracuda 2016 won’t exactly be a copy of previous ‘Cuda which was discontinued 40 years ago. Instead, new age pony car will receive contemporary chassis with plenty of line combos. Apart from natural curves, Dodge’s (or SRT’s) new muscle will exhibit plenty of angular lines as well. We can expect Dodge’s signature split rectangular grille up front and angular tail-lights taken straight from the Challenger itself. Otherwise, there’s still nothing more to say about it.

New Interior of 2016 Dodge Barracuda

Even less can be said of new Barracuda’s interior. Its cabin should be sporty with curved dash and contemporary materials that make it, but everything is possible. While entry-level models will certainly be like that, top tiers might offer more refined materials like leather and accents made of aluminum. As a new age car, the 2016 Dodge Barracuda will offer a modern touch screen display in its center stack, there’s no doubt about it. Furthermore, it will certainly come with all modern connectivity options including 4G LTE capability.

Dodge Barracuda 2016 engine

The new Dodge Barracuda 2016 should drive on a number of powertrains, just like Mustang and Camaro do. Everything from turbo fours to V-8’s comes to mind, and wouldn’t surprise us. We know that rear-wheel drive platform is going to be used for it, and Chrysler/Fiat will be its manufacturer. Finally, expect everything from conventional manual to dual-clutch automatic shifters.

2016 Dodge Barracuda release date, mpg, price

The release date of the new 2016 Dodge Barracuda should be after its presentation which could be in first half of 2016, at one of the North American car shows. Now, fuel efficiency always depends on a chosen powertrain. Dodge and SRT divisions won’t have plenty of room for mistakes since Mustang has never been more efficient thanks to its new EcoBoost engine. Naturally, 4-cylinders will be the most efficient, while V-8’s are supposed to stick to mid teens when it comes to mpg combined. Price range should also mimic that of Mustang and Camaro. Expect new 2016 Dodge Barracuda to cost between $25,000 and $50,000.
