In 2015 The SRT Barracuda Will Replace the Dodge Challenger

The Challenger is pretty cool on account of the massive hemi V8 that resides under the hood, but it's deeply flawed. It doesn't drive like like a sports car, it drives like a family sedan. Largely, that's because the Chrysler LC platform is made from a lot of the early '00s crap Mercedes didn't have any use for anymore.

That's why SRT, the performance tuning divison turned full brand of Chrysler, has taken t designing a replacement, which will bear the Barracuda name in 2015. The Barracuda will be significantly smaller than the Challenger and 250 to 300 lbs lighter. Expect a choice of a turbocharged four pot, a V6, and another big-ass hemi.
