FCA Files Trademark for “Cuda” Name! A few months ago we excitedly reported that Jeep is working on bringing back its beloved Jeep Wagoneer but according to new reports, FCA might have plans to bring back the Barracuda. The Plymouth Barracuda, originally built from 1964 to 1974, was a muscular two-door car and the original pony car, predating the Ford Mustang by a month. The Plymouth Barracuda, which was housed under the Chrysler brand, still enjoys a fairly fanatical following from American performance car enthusiasts.
Although Chrysler’s branding has changed over the years, many rumors suggest that FCA could introduce a new Barracuda branded as a Dodge, which is now known as the performance car division of FCA. The automaker already filed for rights to the Barracuda name in 2015, but they also recently filed a new application for the common abbreviation “Cuda,” sparking more rumors that a revamped Cuda is on the way. Some rumors believe the new Barracuda could essentially be a convertible version of the next-generation Dodge Challenger, which is expected around 2020.
