2014 Challenger spy shot??

2014 Challenger – or Barracuda – spotted?

Posted on June 26th, 2012 • by David Zatz

Brenda Priddy spotted this Dodge Challenger driving down the highway. She wrote:
Major changes are expected to the Challenger lineup for the 2015 model year – including renaming the car Barracuda. But in the meantime – and based on these photos – a mid-cycle facelift will be taking place very shortly. These two SRT8 Challengers were very camera shy and we could hardly see through their dark bar, but looking close – it appears the updated Challenger may be getting more a a Charger-type/Dodge-styled grille (the center-vertical bar is visible through the camouflage), updated headlamps and a larger air intake down low.
Of interest, one might see an SRT Barracuda in the new grille treatment. While most of the car is pure 2012 Challenger, dropping the two large parking lights (or moving them behind the grille) and — possibly, it’s hard to tell underneath the grille — seems to result in a 1970 Barracuda-styled grille.

I hope this is wrong, imo, that would look horrible on the Challenger.

This might be close to what the front end will eventually look like or something similar. Of course, minus the driving (yellow) lights.

I have no Photoshop skills... but I did a 30-second chop job on the photo above using MS Paint.

This quote on allpar.com:

"Major changes are expected to the Challenger lineup for the 2015 model year – including renaming the car Barracuda."

That's a rather dubious comment, since the SRT Barracuda is supposed to be a different platform, smaller size, etc as Chrysler transitions away from the Daimler based LX/LY/LC platform.

I'm pretty suspect, since one of their other Barracuda related pages kept getting revised w/ strikeout type and pasting in other info that was sketchy at best, to describe it and some out-of-date information as well.

Not bad. Can you take out the center silver trim piece and add smaller driving lights behind the grille? It looks like this spy shot has smaller driving lights behind the grille just inside the headlights.

I'm getting sea sick looking at the reflection of the double yellow lines on the side of the car.
