So why the confusion? Why the rumors of the end of the Challenger in the first place? Well, there was that leak that the 2018 SRT Barracuda would be introduced and that sort of overshadowed everything. For a while the buzz was that the 2018 Barracuda would replace the 2018 Challenger. Really, the whole thing should have never gotten out. But one has to wonder, was it really a leak or an intentional rumor placement?
Terrible Secret Keeping There, Guys.
Now, the new 2018 Barracuda has everyone excited with talk of the possibility of a supercharged 6.2 liter V 8. This will put the old school muscle car back on the map. And running the Cuda and the 2018 Challenger in tandem would be absolutely awesome.
But some camps were not exactly enthused to see the 2018 Dodge Challenger stick around. Then again, when it comes to going the distance in a short time, it's the 2018 Dodge Challenger they depend on to deliver the goods.
So the 2018 Dodge Challenger lives to see another day. Touting "affordable performance" not much will change, though. The real changes won't happen till 2019 when the 2018 dodge Challenger and Barracuda will reportedly run side by side. But, at this point there isn't much leaking from Dodge's powers that be regarding engines, interior design and body styling.
So, until Dodge comes through with the 2018 Dodge Challenger SRT8 we'll just have to wait and watch. In the meantime, yeah, there's plenty of room at the top for two sporty rides.
