Is it or isn’t it? Will it or won’t it?
We’re talking about the rumored resurgence of the Dodge Barracuda of course.
There have been so many rumors about this legendary, two-door pony car making a comeback over the years (with nothing to show for it) that it’s hard to know what or who to believe.
But here we go again.
The latest talks about a new Barracuda supposedly came from Chrysler’s National Dealer Announcement Event a couple of years back.
Technically, this is hearsay, so don’t hang your hat on this information.
Is the Cuda making a comeback?
According to sources, the newest Barracuda model is set to be released in 2019 or 2020. Dodge wants it to compete with the Ford Mustang and Chevrolet Camaro.
The Cuda is also planned to be available in both coupe and convertible models.
So far, everyone has been hesitant to say for certain whether this new Barracuda model will be among the many other new Dodge models, and rightly so! Many of us have already been disappointed in the past with fake rumors of the car’s comeback.
Past Barracuda rumor mill
Chrysler manufactured the original Plymouth Barracuda between 1964 and 1974.
The first rumored comeback of the vehicle was in 2007 and gave the vehicle a 2009 release date.
Nothing came of it.
The next mention of the Barracuda making a comeback was in 2012 and was rumored to have a 2014 release date.
Again, an empty rumor.
We can only hope that the third time’s the charm and that the newest Barracuda model will prove to have been worth the wait!
