Dodge to Resurrect Plymouth Barracuda

2017 Dodge Barracuda Forum


With the introduction of the new 2011 Challenger SRT8 392 at the SEMA Show last week, Dodge brand boss and Chrysler design chief Ralf Gilles dropped a bit hint at the return of the Plymouth Barracuda.

"There's a lot of pressure on us to bring the 'Cuda back," said Gilles to a crowd of Mopar loyalists. "The customers have been stomping their feet for it."

There's no doubt Gilles wouldn't have brought it up were it not in the works and with Chrysler looking to breath new life into the brand while retaining loyalists, we'd expect to see a new HEMI 'Cuda in the not-too-distant future.

As for the fact that the Plymouth brand has been long dead: that's just a detail at this point.

Saying that in passing doesn't necessarily mean it's set in stone and coming back. That's quite a leap.

When I was at Mr. Norm's in Rockford, IL a few weeks ago, they were in the process of converting two new Challengers into Hemi Cuda convertibles. Both of them looked great.

The only thing I'd really want from the 'Cuda over what the modern Challenger already has is the shaker hood. I'd LOVE to see a stock one. The modern Challenger already pulls a lot of the styling I really liked from the original 'Cuda.

I wish they would do it as a base musclecar instead of loading up on all the options in the book to get a performance model make it competitive with the Mustang so college kids and people like me in their early 20's could afford it.

I'll believe it when I see it...

you are assuming the 'cuda would be based on the Challenger - not the Charger

If past history means anything, much like the Plymouth Prowler became the Chrysler Prowler when the Plymouth line was retired, the 'Cuda would logically be in the Chrysler line
