Representatives of the concern Fiat Chrysler Automobiles, which includes Dodge, re-registered the Cuda trade name. It is assumed that a new version of the legendary Dodge Challenger mascara will be sold under this name in the future.

The Italian-American concern Fiat Chrysler Automobiles has registered the Cuda trade name for the third time in the past 10 years. The first trademark registration dates back to 2010, and then in 2017, the automaker decided to renew its patent. Now, ten years after the first filing of a trademark filing in recent history, the FCA has registered another application for that name. The application applies to “land vehicles, namely cars” and was filed with the US Patent and Trademark Office.

It is noteworthy that the patent was received on October 12 this year.

Of course, this does not mean that a new muscle car awaits us “on the horizon”, but at least it gives us some hope that Dodge engineers are working on something interesting.

It is important to note that the new Cuda trademark differs from the Barracuda patent, which was last activated on June 23, 2015. FCA has since ditched Barracuda, but we won’t be very surprised if we see a new bid for the Barracuda brand in the coming weeks. After all, in the past, the Barracuda was called the legendary Plymouth muscle car, while the Cuda was just one version of the Dodge Challenger sports coupe.

This new patent application leaves us with two options. On the one hand, the manufacturer can finally get ready for the return of the legendary Plymouth Barracuda, or a new Cuda configuration will appear in the current Dodge Challenger lineup. There are rumors that under the brand name Cuda will be sold for the world’s first electric car, Dodge. At the moment, nothing has been officially confirmed.

Not so long ago, we wrote that Fiat Chrysler will start producing drones. Carmaker FCA and Waymo have agreed to create light commercial unmanned vehicles. As part of the agreement, Waymo Driver will equip Ram ProMaster vans with an autopilot system.
