Rumors about the new 2024 Dodge Viper have not subsided. Not many details have emerged yet, but we’re happy to have the new Viper here. According to the latest information, the new Dodge Viper could return sometime next year. In case you missed it, production of the fifth generation Viper ended in 2017 and we’ve been hearing some rumors about its return since then.
The Viper will get smaller and we think it will be powered by a naturally aspirated V-8 that produces 550 horsepower. By the way, a supercharged version with 700 hp is also expected. A manual transmission is a must because it will stand out in the face of the increasing mechanical competition.
2024 Dodge Viper Design
The exterior design of the 2024 Dodge Viper will update and we expect to run the new sports car on a new platform. To date, this model uses a space frame with front and rear independent suspension. It also has a long hood, which makes this car especially distinctive.
It is reported that Dodge will offer a convertible version from the start, as well as the GTS and ACR models. Aluminum and carbon fiber are used for the body, which are intended to keep the mass as low as possible.

First of all, you can expect this sports car to offer more supportive seats, as well as better materials. The technology will also be new, including a larger infotainment screen and plenty of standard equipment.
Overall, expect the latest Dodge Uconnect infotainment system, voice recognition, Bluetooth, satellite radio, HD Radio, USB-C port, navigation and a powerful Harman Kardon audio system. Security is also improved and you can count on a very long list of features.
2024 Dodge Viper Engine Rumors
At this point, we have no idea what engine will power the new generation Dodge Viper. It will reportedly be made smaller compared to the engine before to comply with state regulations. Overall, we think it will be powered by a naturally aspirated V-8 engine that will be able to produce 550 horsepower.
In addition to this engine, we also expect at least one type of supercharged engine to produce at least 700 hp. A manual gearbox is also a must, which should stand out in the face of only increasing automatic competition.

Is Viper back?
It seems, yes. While many details are still scarce at the time of writing, we expect the new Dodge Viper to cost significantly more than before. The current model starts at $90,000, while the new model can start at $100,000. You see, that’s a difference of 10k, which is a huge increase.
We also expect the additional Viper GTS to jump to over $115,000 and the track-oriented Viper ACR to start at over $125,000. If many of the rumors are true, the new sports car will arrive sometime next year, possibly in the second half of the year.
