The Dodge Barracuda is Back for 2013
After several years in hibernation, it is rumored that the Barracuda will be replacing the Challenger is Dodge’s 2013 vehicle lineup. Since this announcement back in January at the Detroit Auto Show, the return of the Barracuda has drawn up quite the buzz all around the country. Although most of the details surround the release of the 2013 Dodge Barracuda have been kept under wraps, you can bet DuPage Dodge Chrysler Jeep will have all of the information as soon as it is made public.
It is expected that the 2013 Barracuda will run on a platform that is smaller and lighter than the Challenger. With Ford and Chevrolet making major changes to the Mustang and Camaro, respectively, drivers in the western suburbs of Chicago can expect big things from the Barracuda. Dodge will almost certainly unleash a vintage, yet modern body style with all the bells and whistles you could imagine on the inside.
What to Expect from the 2013 Barracuda
What we know for sure about the 2013 Dodge Barracuda is that Dodge and Chrysler are working side by side to make this sports car as powerful and appealing as possible. According to sources from Dodge, the SRT Barracuda will run on a 6.2L supercharged Hemi engine. We also know this car will be smaller and lighter than the current Challenger; this is being done to compete directly against the Mustang and Camaro. Lastly, it is highly suspected the 2013 Barracuda will run on a rear-wheel drive platform. This assures the sports car feel that enthusiasts have grown to love over the years.
