2024 Dodge Barracuda: New Barracuda Performance Cars Review

Posted on

2024 Dodge Barracuda seems to be a Dodge production muscle and looks like a speculative rendering of Timothy Adry Emmanuel fans who have a bright future to look forward to.

The car slowly but surely uses up all the electricity and that makes things quite interesting. Because someday muscle cars will probably go down the same road. There have been a lot of rumors about a 2024 electric Dodge muscle car.

What 2024 Dodge Barracuda will look like? We’ve seen a few teasers but now it’s time to take it to the next level.

Talented digital artist and presenter Timothy Adry Emmanuel has created this exclusive render for HotCars showing off what the 2024 Dodge eMuscle will look like.

2024 Dodge Barracuda also seems we know how serious Dodge is in reinventing American muscle for the era of electric vehicles. In early 2022 we will see Dodge’s first electric muscle car concept followed by plug-in hybrids and a third significant new vehicle.

There will also be gas-powered buzz vehicles for fans ahead of 2024 when the first EVs will launch but Dodge will stop production of its current pair of high-octane muscle cars, the Challenger coupe and Charger sedan in two years and replace them with new cars in the new platform.

Dodge Brand CEO Tim Kuniskis announced in July that Dodge will have its first pure EV in 2024. We think we’ll have to wait a while to see how Dodge will tackle the future. We were too patient because the future (at least at Dodge) is almost here.

  • The first electric muscle car concept will be revealed early next year
  • Plug-in hybrid cars will go into production at the end of 2022
  • A third significant new vehicle is in the works
  • Electric vehicles will wear the Fratzog symbol symbol
  • More buzz models for gearheads are coming along with Direct Connection parts and kits
  • The current line of muscle cars will end production in 2024

This is all part of a two-year plan called Never Lift that has a series of product-related announcements designed to appease a divided consumer base: those who will embrace electrification and those who strongly oppose the idea and have sent Kuniskis death threats. “For 24 months we fed the animal,” Kuniskis told us in an interview.

New Dodge Barracuda Design

The 2024 Dodge Barracuda car’s top-down view gives us a good overall picture of Emmanuel’s work. The light bar looks fantastic even more so when it comes to powering the front splitter.

It has retained the outlines of the current Challenger and the hood scoop is a new way to cool the electric drivetrain while also retaining the distinctive design elements of today’s muscle cars.

The gills on either side of the front wheel no doubt also serve a cooling purpose. We don’t know exactly what eMuscle will look like. But if it is like this then Dodge will be the winner.

2024 Dodge Barracuda Rendering

This time’s 2024 Dodge Barracuda has some hints of the upcoming 2024 electric Dodge muscle car but it’s mostly shrouded in darkness.

But that doesn’t mean there aren’t details of concept drawings or animations that can’t be captured and used to put together a concept just as adry53customs did in a recent video posted on its Instagram page featuring a walkaround.

The render is inspired by Plymouth’s Cuda and Challenger and some speculation from the Stellantis EV day video. Without clicking on the video we can already see the inspiration mentioned.

The front end follows what Dodge has to say about the upcoming eMuscle and its inspiration from classic Dodge muscle cars. The CGI walkaround video gives us a look at this imaginary car from all angles and although it sounds like adding the sound of a jet engine to the video the visuals are what’s important here.

Dodge Barracuda Exterior 2024

The 2024 Dodge Barracuda on the eMuscle front is certainly impressive. Like many electric cars, there is now a light bar running across the front of the eMuscle.

This shrouds the front fascia and what’s interesting to see is that Emmanuel doesn’t fall into the trap that many manufacturers have and creates a complete grille.

This is an electric car. It doesn’t need a grid. Underneath the light bar somewhere there’s no doubt some sort of cooling but what blew us away was the massive and super-aggressive splitter. We also love the revived Dodge Fratzog logo.

On the back, the eMuscle is quite impressive. A lot of its inspiration came from today’s Dodge Challenger. The fascia shape and general style evoke that muscle car. It’s very sleek with minimal clutter and it’s refreshing.

So many car designs these days are too finicky. There’s even a hint of a 1970 Plymouth Hemi Barracuda here too. So it’s a great blend of past present and future too.

2024 Dodge Barracuda EV

The 2024 Dodge Barracuda is something to note in the rendering of the walkaround. We would like to note that Stellantis CEO Carlos Tavares has stated that the automaker is creating a soundscape for an electric muscle car which he describes as “shocking.”

He explained that dynamic sound will accompany the powertrain with increased sound volume and power with increased motor output as would be expected to be found with the ICE.

Sound is as important to car enthusiasts as performance is to many so we hope they do a great job with whatever they’re working on.

Tavares is confident that his company will provide Dodge customers with an experience that lives up to the brand’s ethos. The CEO of Stellantis promised that we would “hit the floor” when we saw Dodge’s new EV coming later this year in concept form.

Of course, performance will also be a factor and Dodge is reportedly aiming to dethrone the Tesla Model S Plaid in terms of 0-60 acceleration. That would turn a few heads especially if the car looked as good as this rendering.

Powertrain, 0-60, Highest Speed & Performance

Though the official specifications have not been released. But we’d expect a dual or tri-motor setup that would make over 800 hp and an all-wheel drive setup and an estimated 0-60 mph in a ridiculous 2 seconds.

And will offer two or four-door options. And like the current lineup of cars, the eMuscle will also deliver insane performance with plenty of spine-tingling torque like the famous brand.

2024 Dodge Barracuda Price

Much like Dodge’s current ideology, we predict that the new Challenger Muscle will start with a $50,000 price tag for the base variant that could go up to $70,000 – $80,000 for the SRT model.

Verdict

The modern 2024 Dodge Barracuda has finally become a necessity. The most important thing is that this will be a big change from the Challenger. The Barracuda, built on the same modern underpinnings as the Giulia, would be something the Challenger couldn’t have due to its ancient and solid underpinnings.

At this point, it’s all speculative, but the Barracuda should be faster, more powerful, more fuel efficient, and noticeably lighter than the Challenger. Apart from that, the 2024 Barracuda with its refined interior and sporty driving dynamics will match its competitors, of course, with comfort and utility it will certainly prefer the Dodge.
