Nowadays, you can find many reports on the internet about this new model, and most of them suggest similar design solutions. According to them, we will see a completely new vehicle, which will probably ride on same platform that Fiat uses for new Alfa Romeo sedan called Giulia. When it comes to dimensions, new model should be somewhere about 7/8 of current Challenger. However, it should be significantly lighter, since there are many advanced design solutions implemented in new Giulia. Great thing about this platform is that it features RWD layout, so we will see a true muscle car form. Also, there are reports that Dodge plans to put similar retro flavor that we saw on Challenger. This will surely be a great thing. Other information is still unavailable.

Although new 2018 Dodge Barracuda will ride on same platform as new Giulia, we doubt that it will feature same engines. Unlike small and efficient four and six-cylinder units, this car will come with some V8 engine under the hood. Exact unit is still unknown, but we expect some Hemi engine in offer. Also, V6 could come for a base model. Finally, we expect to see some SRT variants in future, which will probably come with mighty Hellcat engine. Expect both manual and automatic transmissions in offer.
