In last ten years, it has become very popular to revive old cars that were popular. This trend is especially popular in the United States, while just a few manufacturers have embraced it in the Europe and Asia. According to reports that have surfaced on the Internet, one of the latest cars that is going to re-enter production is Plymouth Barracuda, however, Plymouth has been shut down long time ago and the new car is going to be manufactured under the name: 2016 Dodge Barracuda.
Exterior of 2016 Dodge Barracuda
When it comes to reviving an old car, it is all about the looks. Companies can easily develop a new car, but in this case they want to appeal to the memories and historical background of a certain model, in order to have better sales.
Because of that, we can expect that the 2016 Dodge Barracuda is going to have similar looks to its predecessor, probably with the most popular model, that was produced from 1970 to 1974. The similar idea was used when other companies where reviving their iconic models, like – Trans Am, Mustang, Charger and Challenger.
We can expect a combination of old style and new technology. The 2016 Dodge Barracuda will have some details that are going to make it similar to its predecessor, especially on the outside. On the other hand, we can expect that the whole body will have different shape, since the shape of the original model is a lot different than the shape of modern cars. Furthermore, since it is a sports car, the manufacturer will surely use new materials, like carbon-fiber.
Interior of Dodge Barracuda 2016
The ideas for the interior of the 2016 Dodge Barracuda are going to be similar like the ideas for the exterior. The interior will surely be a combination of classic design, with new materials and features.
Some reports suggest that the interior for the 2016 Dodge Barracuda could be borrowed from another Dodge, which could cut the production price of the car significantly, which means that the car could be cheaper. There is going to be a lot of features and equipment as part of the base model, with lots of customization available.
Dodge Barracuda Engine
Old Barracudas were famous for their V8 Hemi engines and experts believe that the manufacturer is going to offer the 2016 Dodge Barracuda with at least one V8 Hemi engine (probably the most expensive, top-of-the-range model is going to have this engine).
The reports are different when it comes to power of the engine, though, while ones claim that the 2016 Dodge Barracuda is going to have engine that is going to produce around 300 horsepower, other suggest that the company is going to use more powerful engine – one that can produce around 500 horsepower.
