2016 Dodge Viper Release Date, Price, MSRP, Pictures – In case your attitude towards power is “more is better,” therefore, the idea of having the upcoming 2016 Dodge Viper should be non-negotiable by all terms. This amazing 645 horsepower machine should be expected anywhere before this fall, according to some credible rumors about its possible release date.

The power-capable Viper is a brutal and rambunctious sports car with evocative styling unmatched by few vehicles in its segment. However, the Viper, will have to contend with so many rivals angling for a piece of the lucrative segment, and you might be forced to consider other options before finally deciding to stick on the Viper.

Some of the main alternatives we strongly think you should consider include the supercharged Chevy Corvette Z06, which comes with the same power and racetrack credibility as the Viper. Also, you can check out the 2016 Porsche 911 or 2016 Nissan GT-R. Both of the vehicles are significantly costly than the Viper but are easier to drive faster and have an available back seat. Moreover, unlike the Viper, these vehicles can also be fitted with quick-shift auto or automated manual transmission system for the traditional drivers.

In overall, we’d say that the Viper still rules the roost with its sheer boisterous attitude and outrageous track-based capability.

As should be expected, the new 2016 Dodge Viper will certainly be a two-seat sports car available in four trims: SRT, GT, GTC and top-of-the-range GTS models. Some of the standard features you should expect for the base SRT model include 19-inch rear wheels, 18-inch front wheels, summer tires, LED daytime running lights and taillights, automatic xenon headlights, keyless ignition and entry, cloth seating, cruise control, a tilt-only leather-wrapped steering wheel, an auto-dimming rearview mirror, power-adjustable pedals, and an automatic climate control.

Technology features include Bluetooth phone and audio connectivity, an 8.4-inch touchscreen with Uconnect, voice-controlled navigation and a twelve-speaker Harman Kardon sound system with an auxiliary input, HD and satellite radio, an SD card reader and a USB interface.

The GT should add a trim-specific hood, unique front and rear fascias, driver-selectable suspension dampers, red calipers and Brembo brakes with two-piece slotted rotors, a five-mode electronic stability control system, a unique interior with standard simulated suede, a six-way power-adjustable driver seat and upgraded leather upholstery.

For the base SRT Viper, options should include the aforementioned 18-speaker Harman Kardon sound system and both the TA 1.0 and TA 2.0 packages. The TA 1.0 package should add a carbon-fiber rear spoiler, racetrack-focused suspension tuning, carbon-fiber front splitter, softer-compound Pirelli tires and black brake calipers. The TA 2.0 package should add the same equipment as the TA 1.0 along with a carbon-fiber X-brace in the engine compartment, unique bodywork, and a larger rear wing.

Engine Specs – 2016 Dodge Viper

According to some credible sources, the new Viper will be underpinned by an upgraded version of Viper’s main engine. Here, we are talking of the agile 8.4L V10 engine capable of generating over 645 hp and about 600 pounds of torque.

There is a possibility of one other engine, although its details are scanty at the moment. However, rumors allege that it will be a supercharged version of the 2016 Dodge Viper current V10 engine. It will be capable of cranking out over 800 hp.

Other features to be provided as standard equipment and features include the Uconnect system, which includes collision notification and emergency roadside assistance.
