All-New 2019 Dodge Viper Is Coming


Set to be unveiled at the 2019 Detroit Motor Show before hitting the streets in 2020.

We were very sad to see the , but a new report by claims the beloved American sports car will return from the dead in 2020, which happens to be the Viper’s 30th anniversary. According to the publication, the next-generation Viper will ride on a spaceframe platform and make extensive use of aluminum and carbon fiber. The reborn Viper will reportedly retain the old car’s iconic shape and will initially launch as a roadster in late 2020.

A coupe will then join the lineup a few years later. While the report suggests the new Viper will look familiar to longtime fans, it’s a different story under the hood. The original Viper famously borrowed the 8.0-liter V10 engine developed by Lamborghini for the RAM pickup, but this will apparently be replaced with a naturally aspirated V8 unit in the new model. Nothing is official yet, but the publication suggests there will be an entry-level model packing 550 horsepower, with a range-topper arriving later in the vein of the hardcore Viper ACR powered by a second-generation Hellcat V8 developing more than 700 hp. To keep purists happy, a manual transmission will also be offered.
