Report: Chrysler seriously considering the return of the Barracuda
The Dodge Challenger is one of the most successful muscle cars of all time and for the 2011 model year, it has become even more impressive with a 392-cubic inch HEMI V8 making 470-hp engine. However, Chrysler fans are still eager to see the return of the Plymouth Barracuda, a muscle car that roamed planet Earth before the Challenger.
According to Chrysler design chief and boss Ralph Gilles, the Auburn Hills automaker is seriously thinking of reviving the Barracuda.
“There’s a lot of pressure on us to bring the ‘Cuda back,” Gilles said at the 2010 SEMA Show last week. “The customers have been stomping their feet for it.”
There’s only one problem – Plymouth doesn’t exist anymore. If the Barracuda is ever revived the model may become Dodge or Chrysler, just as the Plymouth PT Cruiser became a Chrysler after the brand was killed.
