How would you feel if you had the opportunity to spend time with a good friend who you haven’t seen in years? Well you are about to experience the same feeling with the comeback of a certain performance vehicle. It’s a sports car that was discontinued in 2017 and you probably thought you might never see it again. But no, it might be coming back in 2021! And by now, you might have guessed which car I am talking about; it is none other than the sporty and stylish Dodge Viper! And you certainly don’t want to miss it because it will be more powerful and sleeker than ever before.
This powerful Dodge has been on the roads since 1991. Throughout these years, the main and most important part of the Dodge Viper remained its potent V10 engine. Some of the first models of this sports vehicle were capable of producing 400 horsepower and 465 lb-ft of torque. From the very first time the idea of the Dodge Viper was conceptualized, it was designed to be a performance car. And for the first generation, this meant having no exterior-mounted door handles or key cylinders. It was strictly designed for individuals who were more interested in how fast they could drive down the road.
The Dodge Viper has gone through several improvements and changes over the decades. The fifth generation of the Dodge Viper (2013-2017), was equipped with a 8.4 L V10 engine capable of producing 645 horsepower and 600 lb-ft of torque. One of the major changes to the Dodge Viper during the previous generation was that it was not only about performance. Comfort, ease of use and connectivity were now all part of the game. These vehicles included a 7-inch full-colour customizable instrument cluster, the Uconnect system and leather seats. With so many changes that have occurred throughout the years, you might be wondering what’s coming up then for the new Dodge Viper in 2021.
What’s coming up?
The answer is quite simple. There is a lot coming up for the Dodge Viper but only time will tell us everything. In 2021, the great Dodge Viper might be returning and there is a lot to expect. First of all, this performance-inspired vehicle will be extensively reworked and revolutionized. And for the first time in history, the V10 engine might be replaced with an even more powerful V8 engine which produces up to 700 horsepower. And according to your tastes and needs, you will also be able to choose from different performance levels. You might be able to catch a glimpse of this upcoming vehicle in the 2019 auto show in Detroit, so keep your eyes open for it and stay tuned to learn more about 2021 Dodge Viper.
