Now when I say possible, it's because what I think will be the competition, isn't quite here yet. Or even confirmed for that matter. BUT nonetheless, I think the upcoming (possibly) Ford Torino would directly compete with the Cuda.
Speculated to be priced just above $40k sporting a 5.0L Coyote that would offer easily over 400hp and 400 lb-ft of torque. Considering the new transmission that'll be going into the Mustang, We'll presume it'll come with the same 10-speed automatic. It'll definitely make for a nice change in the industry, something fresh that isn't the same old Mustang vs. Challenger vs. Camaro trio.
Of course RWD. But again, speculated, the Torino will be coming in Sedan and Coupe as it'll be the successor to the Taurus.
I think this could get real interesting, real soon. Especially with this news surfacing, it could even push Dodge to try and release the Cuda before the Torino comes in to play ?
