The 2015 Dodge Barracuda will be released by the end of this year as a 2015 model. The new model will replace the Dodge Challenger and judging by the reports available, it will make its competition tremble in fear. The new model will wear the name 2015 SRT Barracuda, where the SRT stands for Street Racing Technology. Since the ‘Cuda will replace the famous Challenger, it will have to be quite better than it. The new model will feature a new platform which will make it a bit smaller than the latter, but at the same time lighter. This will have a positive impact on its performance. Speaking of which, the new model will also offer an excellent array on engines to choose from, which will all provide the car with more than enough power to tackle any competitor. The new 2015 SRT Barracuda will definitely be one of the cars to look forward to in the next year.
New Platform Underpins New Barracuda
The 2015 Dodge (SRT) Barracuda will have a new platform. This will make it around 300 pounds lighter than the current Challenger model, but it will also affect its dimensions. The new model will be eight inches shorter and two inches narrower than the Challenger, while its wheelbase will be shrunk for up to six inches. As for the exterior, the model will have an extravagant and slightly retro look. Such combination might not be appealing for everyone, but it will certainly make the car stand out from other models, and it will nicely depict its wild and wacky character. The ‘Cuda will have a menacing front end with really slim grille and wicked headlights, while its body shape will be very aerodynamic and powerful. The model seeks for eccentric and adventurous buyers, so it is not for the faint-hearted.
2015 SRT Barracuda Powertrain — Tigershark, Pentastar & HEMI
The 2015 SRT (Dodge) Barracuda will have an amazing powertrain. The engine lineup offers all kinds of treats. One of them is the 2.4-liter Tigershark four-cylinder inline engine, while the more powerful is a direct-injected 3.6-liter Pentastar V6 unit and the most powerful direct-injected 5.7-liter HEMI V8 mill. These engines will produce more than enough power to race this car. Also, it might get a new supercharged 6.2-liter HEMI engine that could generate as much as 580 horsepower, which would make it a racing monster that is not to be given to anyone. As for the transmission, the 2015 SRT ‘Cuda wil use either six-speed or seven-speed dual-clutch automatic gearbox.
