2019 Dodge Barracuda

So rumours has it all...It's going to be a midsize, rear-drive muscle car (coupe and convertible).

This is a rendered of the 2019 Dodge barracuda:


Quote:
The car is planned as both a coupe and convertible, and will likely use a twin-turbo V6 engine as its top powerplant, generating more power than the current 5.7 Hemi but probably less than the 392. Responsiveness should be strong depending on what technologies are used; an electric motor or small “startup” turbocharger would provide for nearly instant-on acceleration.

This has me thinking it could be sized and even proportioned like the Cadillac ATS and slot among its surrounding segments similar to how the ATS slots into its surrounding luxury coupe segments.

It was also rumored to sit on the Alfa Romeo sedan platform too, maybe their new Giulia platform?

That does make the most sense, having followed platform development at FCA, it's the only platform they can put it under and there's just absolutely no way they'll develop a new platform just for the Cuda.

That also brings up another thing, we could see some weird looking test mule surface that has a wheelbase similar to the Giulia.

Hard to say what the test mule will look like but we could be seeing a rear wheel drive cuda if it does use the Giulia platform.

I hope it's rear-wheel drive. Most definitely should have a manual option as well.

As a basemodel it should be RWD, then optional AWD if they must do something else, it's the only other option. But I have a feeling they will just keep it RWD. Just look at what people want in similar segments and in current rivals. AWD is required elsewhere.

If they absolutely have to, then yes AWD. But even that I doubt. The main thing is offering a manual option. The Camaro never came with one and it definitely turned quite a few people away from it.

I wouldn't say no to something that looks like the 2008 concept model.

Same, lol. I actually really love the 2008 concept and haven't seen it before, would be nice to see it live.
