Will it really be that much heavier?? I am not sure that so many changes will be made that will affect the weight.

I can't imagine it being more than 500LBS more. It's the sort of difference in weight you'll really feel in the turns with constant weight transfer going on.

I'm sure Dodge has taken into account the additional weight and modified the car's handling accordingly.

It'd be a pretty big oversight if they didn't.

We'll have to wait and see what they mention weight reduction to be since that will be a big concern with these vehicles, american vehicles overall.

Dodge could always reduce the cars weight with lightweight materials even if it increase the car's price a bit.

But the Barracuda isn't aiming to be that expensive. I'm not sure they would be able to do much of that while staying at a reasonable price point.

Yeh that's what i'm getting from this and that's what I see going on here, it's an affordable RWD (they better not go FWD on us!) coupe to start.

Wouldn't mind paying a bit more for an AWD Barracuda and I doubt they'll go FWD on us.
Does the Giulia come with AWD?
