Dodge Abandons 'Cuda Idea
The last production Plymouth Barracuda rolled down an assembly line way back in 1974, but enthusiasts have remained hopeful that FCA, the parent company of Dodge and the retired Plymouth brand, would bring the 'Cuda back into production early this decade.

The idea was backed up by a trademark application filed in 2017 for the word 'Cuda to be used as motor vehicles, namely, passenger automobiles, their structural parts, trim and badges.

Although the idea of a 21st-Century 'Cuda alongside the Dodge Charger and Challenger is very appealing to some, FCA's recent transfer of ownership may have cancelled any further 'Cuda development.

In October 2020, FCA abandoned its trademark application for the word 'Cuda.

So, for now, there are no plans to bring a Dodge 'Cuda to market.

Sorry for the bad pun, folks, but that bites!
