Dodge has been successful in recent years, closing the last decade with tremendous sales. Apparently, the world is awaiting the Dodge Barracuda. In fact, according to Google, the vehicle is a popular search topic. A lot of people are searching for a new Dodge muscle car, maybe because there hasn’t been a new one announced since 2008 when the Dodge Challenger came back to life. The renderings of the Barracuda have the vehicle looking similar to the exterior shape and design of the Challenger. The muscle car carries similar bold features and the aerodynamics of the vehicle are apparent. The suggested price point is expected to be close to the Dodge Challenger SRT Hellcat Redeye, around $75,000 MSRP, according to some sources. We’re not sure if Fiat Chrysler Automobiles (FCA) is planning the Barracuda to come out as a surprise, but we can’t definitely say it’s coming out in 2020. Some reports suggest this might be the year, but we are not sure.

When Come The Barracuda Come Out?

Dodge enjoyed 2019 with a victory over the Ford Mustang and Chevrolet Camaro in terms of sales in the third-quarter and held its own throughout last year. Dodge knows customers are anxious to see more options. The Dodge brand has carried the nameplate of the Barracuda before. The debut would most likely take place at a major international auto show and some of the upcoming dates and cities include New York, Miami, and Los Angeles. The New York International Auto Show will run from April 10, 2020 through April 19th, 2020,  the State Fair of Texas, will be open from September 25th through October 18th, 2020, the Los Angeles Auto Show, will run November 20th through the 29th, 2020. As for South Floridians, the Miami International Auto Show will see the date pushed back, skipping 2020 altogether with its 50th-anniversary auto show taking place in February 2021. The Detriot North American International Auto Show, where the Barracuda could possibly debut, moved from January to June recently. 

Other Nameplates That Have Returned

Many nameplates have not gone away and stayed in the minds of previous owners and fans. The Blazer was recently one name that returned, the Gladiator, the Supra and many other vehicle names across multiple brands have resurfaced. The Dodge Barracuda is one example that has not gone away and many have pegged the return as more than a possibility, but a future entry into the Dodge muscle car lineup. Let’s see what happens, as for those looking for a new Dodge vehicle, come to us at Miami Lakes Automall to get started on securing the newest Dodge muscle cars available today.

Dodge Switches Up Splitter Guard Color With A Dramatic Change

Dodge and FCA have developed a very ingenious plan to better preserve their top muscle car paint jobs and ensure they remain protected. In the last half-decade, many owners have managed to retain their splitter guards on their Dodge muscle cars. This was not the original intention by Dodge when the vehicles were designed. If these splitter guards are not taken off, they could potentially harm the body’s paint. Splitter guards are used as a shield for the splitter should any object come in contact with it during transportation or when moving during the off-load process at a dealership. Fiat Chrysler Automobiles (FCA), the parent company of Dodge, has supervised the choice to use these plastic guards, beginning in 2015 when they originally commenced the splitter guards existing. Over the past five years, a community has embraced and kept these plastic splitter guards on their Dodge muscle cars. This is somewhat of a polarizing topic as even a Facebook group of splitter guard fans has over 12,000 members, but FCA has made a choice to change the formerly yellow-colored guards to change to a new hot-pink color.

Here Comes the Hot Pink Flare

Enter the new hot-pink brightness attached with the splitter guards. Luckily, one group of customers might enjoy this change more so than any other place in the country. That would be Dade Country, with our Miami Heat Vice City fans. However, customers at large might not welcome the change. Luckily, there is a genuine reason these splitter guards were changed. They were first intended to be separated by dealerships, but many of them have decided to leave the choice to the customer after a purchase. Having a splitter guard taken off the vehicle is one way to ensure the vehicle maintains its brand new look. Some customers believe the splitter guard looks new. Keep in mind, several other ways are more reliable to find out how new a vehicle is. Checking the title, checking a carfax, or fastest is the odometer. Since the odometer is less prominent than a splitter guard, some first-time customers are instantly attracted to the plastic splitter guard. That might change when the pink ones start to roll out.

Guard The Paint Job With No Splitter Guards

Many people look forward to driving off the lot with the splitter guard on. Nevertheless, the current head designer of the Dodge and SRT had this to say about those owners and he has been outspoken that he isn’t a fan of the splitter guard. Keeping the paint safe for the vehicle is what FCA and drivers ultimately want most. With the splitter guards on, the paint fades over time, seemingly because the plastic can move somewhat and produce irritation that removes the paint faster. The addition of the splitter guard wasn’t “part of the original design” for FCA and Dodge. While this new trend that has been staying around and grew out of popularity for the wrong reasons, we still allow the choice to be up to the customer. Currently, the splitter guards are made with yellow and that is expected to change eventually in 2020 to pink. Have more questions? Feel free to ask us at Miami Lakes Automall.

Dodge and parent company, Fiat Chrysler Automobiles (FCA), have made a bright choice by including the Dodge Durango to the SRT family, but are now taking it one step further. Today, the Dodge Charger and Dodge Challenger are the lone Dodge vehicles that present an SRT Hellcat trim. Of course, we’ve just learned the news that Dodge will include the Hellcat to its large SUV staple, the upcoming 2021 Dodge Durango. New to the Durango will be the greatest engine made by Fiat Chrysler, the extraordinary 6.2-Liter supercharged V8 engine and all the perks of the SRT Hellcat trim. Exclusively badging, style, and power that makes the Hellcat so impressive. Let’s get into all the upcoming news with the Durango.

We Are All Waiting For the Durango SRT Hellcat

Currently, no footage has come of the entire 2021 Dodge Durango for customers to view, but that will change when the vehicle debuts at the 2020 New York International Auto Show. The current fastest Dodge Durango is the SRT trim that offers a 6.4-Liter HEMI V8 powertrain that affords 475 horsepower and a solid 470 lb-ft of torque rating. But, for Dodge and FCA, they are committed to breaking the boundaries and records for power and have full concentration towards improving their brand. That’s exactly what customers can expect with the SRT Hellcat. In the Dodge Challenger SRT Hellcat Redeye, owners are treated to 797 horsepower stock! We’re not sure what the Durango SRT Hellcat will boast, but we will soon learn at the New York International Auto Show on April 10th through the 19th, 2020 at the Javits Center in Manhattan, New York.
