The top line is the best place the three engine options and this pack will be led by the 6.2-liter Hemi V8 which will be sucking down compressed air from a supercharger in order to fulfill its duty in spitting out more than 700 horses and about 650 pounds-feet of torque. The acceleration figures for this top model Barracuda will be a 0 to 62 sprint in around 3.3 seconds, a number that will have many brand new supercars starring at wishfully.
As the main reason for the great sprinting numbers that are being announced is a brand new 8 speed transmission that will have a very sophisticated software telling the gearbox how to operate as the near perfect automatic. Using this gearbox the muscle car will get really close to the magic 200 miles per hour number but will probably shy away from it just by a few miles.
In the middle of the offer there is going to be a 3.6 liter V6 Pentastar engine that is supposed to bring down the fuel economy of the model while maintaining the decent performance of the car. At the bottom of the lineup there will be the very efficient 2.4 liter inline four called the “Tiger-Shark” that will be operating with the most modern of intake systems the MultiAir2 technology that has been developed using the technology of the Chrysler brand owner Fiat producing respectable 184 horsepower.
