The article also includes crappy comments on the Dart.

The more I think on it I believe a reading comprehension problem on my end. Didn't Barracuda rumors begin at Detroit NAIAS last year?
Barracuda rumors began in that video last year where Ralph was standing in front of a sporty 4 door concept. A few weeks later a Chrysler spokesperson dropped the Barracuda name in the same sentence as the 6.2 Turbo Hemi and since then, speculation has been rampant and wild...and mostly in error. ;)

Turbo 6.2??

I think you meant to say Supercharged 6.2 ;)

I read the article. Whenever I read reporting (journalism and reporting are two very different things), I get a vibe about its authenticity. I didn't get that warm fuzzy reading this. It sounded like somebody had a word count to fill, and had to get something down quickly and didn't have time to do things correctly.

Reporting is what the nightly news (et al)does.

Journalism is what Frontline does (EDIT: AND ALLPAR).

Well...nothing new at the Detroit show, as you all predicted.
Supposedly it came up at one of the press conferences with the Fiat/Chrysler honchos. Does anyone know the specifics about what was said?

I'm still trying to keep the miles off of the blue oval to protect the trade-in value. ;)
