    AutoWise is reporting that the former Viper Conner Avenue Assembly Plant will begin retooling in order to start the production of a “specialty” vehicle with “legendary roots”- probably a Dodge/Chrysler SRT 'Cuda. The engine looks to be a “strengthened” 6.2L or 6.4L with a larger bore of 105.4-mm and longer stroke. On top will sit the next-gen 2.4L Supercharger with a updated gear ratio. This could put the 2020 'Cuda at 800+ horsepower with the right fuel.

    https://autowise.com/2020-dodge-cud...il for a,for $26,750 and $26,600 respectively

    Sounds like more BS! Who sells a car like that for $26,000? And it's supposed to be a specialty car! So it should be a lot more $ than a Challenger.
    Put these rumors to rest already.

    Did you read the last sentence from the article?

    "The new Dodge Barracuda is estimated to retail for a price of $28,690, in a similar price category to the existing Dodge Challenger. The base 2020 ‘Cuda is expected to be priced similarly to the new Ford Mustang and Chevrolet Camaro, with base models that retail for $26,750 and $26,600 respectively. However, a performance model could sell for up to $70,000."

    There's talk about Challenger and Charger being replaced or a major upgrade in 2023.
