2015 SRT (Dodge) Barracuda — Could You Handle It?
The 2015 Dodge Barracuda will take the place of the famous Dodge Challenger. What’s intriguing is the fact that the new Barracuda won’t be a Dodge at all. Actually, its full name will be the 2015 SRT Barracuda. Why the management did this and what are they trying to accomplish? Well, nobody can say for sure. The SRT acronym stands for the Street Racing Technology. Since it will replace the Challenger, it should be much better. The 2015 Dodge (SRT) Barracuda started from the platform. It will be underpinned by the completely new platform, which will provide the new Barracuda better driving performance. Besides that, it will be eight inches shorter and two inches narrower in comparison with the Dodge Challenger. Its wheelbase will be up to six inches shorter. The new platform and use of the advanced modern materials made the 2015 Barracuda almost 300 pounds lighter than the Challenger.
2015 SRT BARRACUDA REDESIGN
It is a common sense that the 2015 Dodge Barracuda (or the SRT Barracuda) simply has to look like no other car. It has to inherit its unique design language and to implement it into the contemporary design. If possible, every new generation should look more beautiful. Yes, the retro feel can be anticipated, but still, it is a modern, new, powerful car. With the new design, powertrain, suspension and even a name, will it be able to keep its old spirit?
2015 SRT BARRACUDA ENGINE OPTIONS — TIGERSHARK, PENTASTAR AND HEMI
The 2015 SRT Barracuda (or the Dodge Barracuda if you wish) has its soul in a place which can’t be determined, but its heart is located right under the hood. The 2015 model will remain in some elements the same as its predecessors. And that means its engine should be a breathtaking beast. The engines installed into the new Barracuda will be really adequate. There will be a 2.4-liter Tigershark four-cylinder inline engine. After that, a more powerful direct-injected 3.6-liter Pentastar V-6 engine and at the end, a direct-injected 5.7-liter HEMI V-8 engine. There are rumors that the 2015 SRT Barracuda can have a supercharged 6.2-liter HEMI which has 580 horsepower (at some sources there’s a number of 660 horsepower). However, it seems that only one of the HEMI engines can find its way under the hood of the new Barracuda. The transmission will be a six or seven-speed dual-cluch automatic.
RELEASE DATE AND EXPECTED PRICE OF THE 2015 DODGE BARRACUDA
The 2015 SRT Barracuda will be released by the end of this year. It will cost around $60,000 for the entry-level version.
