Full Answer

In 2013, the CEO of Fiat and Chrysler hinted that Dodge would manufacture a sports vehicle called the Dodge Barracuda, a call-back to the Plymouth Barracuda that existed between 1964 and 1974. The car is speculated to eventually become a replacement to the Dodge Challenger, but would come with the option to have the same 6.2 liter supercharged Hemi engine as the newer versions of the Challenger, according to Allpar's website.

The 2015 Dodge Barracuda was expected to be lighter than the current Charger vehicles, but with a wider range of powertrains, including 4, 6 and 8 cylinder automatic or manual transmission engines, according to Car and Driver magazine. The vehicle is still on hold and there is no definitive word from Chrysler that the Dodge Barracuda will ever be manufactured.
