2018 Dodge Barracuda

Sunday, September 18th 2016. | Dodge

All rivals of Dodge Barracuda will be available with massive updates but it sounds that Dodge would not take the same way. 2018 Dodge Barracuda has no drastic changes as it is rumored around the social media. FCA group has been producing this car for almost 10 years and they wouldn’t keep it for much longer. Still based on rumors, the 2017 model will be the last generation and this car started to surface that it will be available for 2018 model.

2018 Dodge Barracuda Front Angle


So, what makes it a bit different from the previous model is that it comes with smaller size to make it lot faster and more efficient but we cannot reveal any reports for its chassis and engine. What we know at this time is that 2018 Dodge Barracuda will not use Alfa’s rear wheel drive platform anymore. This change gives a big dilemma. As usual, it brings good and bad. First, the Alfa platform is one of the best options that give high modular design but if it is not using this platform, perhaps Dodge has a great offer for its improved development to keep its future. In addition, they will not remove the rear wheel drive unibody design. It is not being heavy and bulky like the old model; its new chassis is smaller and lighter to give you a more structurally rigid design. It means that this latest generation is better and easier to drive without losing its functionality to accommodate more than four people inside comfortably. So, the exterior will be shorter, narrower and lower than ever. A better proportion is what they are going to present. A longer wheelbase is possible.

Several changes on its outer part will give some advantages inside the cabin. First, Dodge is quite promising to use their best strategy so that the cabin is still roomy even if the size is smaller than before. To achieve this, they will use longer wheelbase. We do expect that 2018 Dodge Barracuda comes with upgraded features starting from security, infotainment and entertainment.


Under the hood, 2018 Dodge Barracuda is suggested to come with all turbocharged engines. It is important because they have to improve the fuel efficiency just like other big automakers do. There are three possible engines to use. For the base, it can be 2 or 2.4 liter and turbocharged engine to generate between 270 and 330 hp and 300 lb-ft of torque. This engine will be used to replace the old V6 engine especially to deal with the competitors.

The next possible engine is all twin-turbocharged unit for the higher trim of 2018 Dodge Barracuda which can be V6 and 3.0 liter to offer 400 hp and 400 lb-ft of torque. This engine will be used by Hellcat. The other alternative can be V8 engine and 3.8 liter to generate 500 to 700 hp just like the current Masserati’s lineup.

Release Date and Price

Still based on rumors, it can be available to hit the market in the end of 2017 or if not, it can be in the beginning of 2018. The starting price is about $30,000 and you have to spend more if you want the higher trim of 2018 Dodge Barracuda.
