Welcome to Gaia! ::

An Article from MotorTrend 2015 Barracuda

I know that there are some of you that dislike American Vehicles, but please, do give your full honest opinion of the vehicle itself and the reason why(besides that you dislike american vehicles).

I do honestly like the front-end but not the back(could use some work).

I'm still in favor of the older cudas though.
For the love of god they really better not be planing on naming that 80s vett rip off you showed a barracuda. For the love of ******** everthring the car gods stand for please no just no. That's is not a barracuda no is it the hemi cude ( two totally diff cars by the way. ). That thang is an affront to ever muscle car ever to run the worlds roads. Just no if that come out with that name I give up on being a Mopar guy for ever.

Oops, I totally forgot that Cudas and Barracudas were different from each other. -__-;
Heh, you got a Mopar? I'm curious.

When I looked at the picture I could have sworn that it looked like a Camaro body kit. I sure hope this isn't the final production version confused
Not a fan of the styling (other than the rear light cues from the '69 Barracuda)

But if they give it that 7.0L 426 that was in that charger shown at the detroit auto show, I will be a happy camper.

I'm not really a Mopar guy, but I respect them; so here's my opinion on the car.

Aesthetic-wise... Methinks it's an ugly duckling. The rear looks like the "current" Challenger rear but all smooshed up on an angle and... Oh god, I think I just threw up in my mouth a little. It's just so... WHY?! Is it that hard to redesign the rear end to form to the new curves of the car? Cmon Dodge! You're not that lazy! Don't release that rear end! You got another three years to change it! GO! And the front end? Well... It's okay... Nothing really imaginative. Really just starting to follow the trend of "your car needs to look like a space-ship" which I'm getting pissed off at evey manufacturer for doing. For some reason, only Ford has it right with their Mustang; that thing looked like a secksy box back in the 60s, and it still does. Even my pride-and-joy Corvette series is starting to show some space-ship tendencies. Dammit. (I still think the C7 is far more attractive than this new abomination that Dodge is considering tossing in.)

Performance-wise... I'm pretty indifferent.The inclusion of the four-banger in the series should be non-existant. You don't buy a Cuda with a four-banger. You just... Dont. That sentence altogether just sounds so dirty and wrong. "Cuda with a four-banger." No.

The V6? Meh. That Pentastar is starting to get kind of old... It's okay I guess.

The Hemi? Well I suppose that's fine. Hemi's will always be Hemi's. Direct injection is nice to hear; I do like it... I don't know, the article says that the current displacement numbers are unlikely to stay. If they stay, I will be happy. If they go down, I will be dissatisfied. Kind of in the way I got dissapointed when I read in Chevy magazine that the new C7 will have a drop in displacement. I'm hoping Dodge keeps the Hemi displacement the way it is and they just add on the new technologies to increase efficiency. But hey; that's unlikely, so I sense dissapointment in the future.

Overall, I'm not too excited. The car is an ugly lump of metal with old-generation technology (except for the four-banger... Which doesnt make sense) and is expected to see a drop in displacement. I'm not a fan.

It looks cartoonish. They should stop wasting their time on that and start working on a new Intrepid. Everyone knows that was the greatest car Detroit ever produced. 3nodding
