    Rumorpile: SRT Barracuda, And Two Models Under Consideration

    Chrysler’s SRT group has been on a bit of roll as late. Their lineup, which includes the Chrysler 300 SRT8, Dodge Challenger SRT8, Dodge Charger SRT8, and Jeep Grand Cherokee SRT8 has been praised widely. But, all of those models mentioned come from other divisions in Chrysler. That appears to be changing with the new SRT Viper due out later this year, and SRT is hungry for more models of their own.

    Motor Trend reports that SRT could be getting two more models in the coming years. The first model is one that we have been hearing about for awhile; the Barracuda. The replacement to the current Dodge Challenger, the Barracuda will use a smaller version of the full-size LY platform (Chrysler 300/Dodge Charger) codenamed LA. The Barracuda is due out sometime in 2015.

    The second model could be one of two possibilities. Possibility one is a successor to the Dodge Ram SRT10. Whether it follows the same ideals as the past Ram SRT10 or goes down the Ford F-150 Raptor route, we’re not sure of. Possibility two is a small, two-seat sports car that could compete with the Mazda Miata.

    Barracuda sounds fantastic, bring it on!

    Small 2-seat roadster sounds awesome as well. Didn't we see a small Dodge roadster concept car a few years ago?

    Ram SRT... hmmm, what should it be on the next go-round... :scratchchin:

    What really has my interest is the rumored "LA" platform. A smaller version of LY that could possibly spawn other variants below the LY cars.

    My vote is for the Raptor Competitor. Seems to make more sense to steal some of Ford's market share, and we've seen creations recently that show it can be done. GM could jump in with their own variant then too.

    Love me some Barracudaaaaaaaaa! :P

    Also I agree that Dodge and GM need to go the Raptor route as there is plenty of market left as not everyone will want a Ford.
