Every now and then there is a unique special edition package available for a Dodge muscle car. This one might be our favorite as its sleek design was so popular, Dodge decided to continue its streak to more Charger trims. The Daytona Edition Package will be ready to join the standard 2020 Dodge Charger R/T and Scat Pack trims. Since the 50th Anniversary happened last year with a new Dodge Charger SRT Hellcat Widebody Daytona 50th Anniversary Edition, Dodge has heard their fans. This surge of calls for more than the 501 vehicles that were made has prompted a large production. The conic redesign from the 1969 classic Dodge Charger Daytona Edition gives drivers unique badging inside and out with premium quality features for owners to love. Let’s break down the major upgrades drivers can expect when stepping into the Daytona Special Edition.

The Joys of the Daytona Edition Charger

A beautiful design is obvious for any owner of the 2020 Dodge Charger. However, the Daytona Special Edition takes this sedan muscle car that already special at base trim and adds measures to increase its appeal. Built with new features, the drivers of this special edition are granted a Mopar cold air intake under the hood, a new satin black Daytona graphic that goes across the rear decklid and fenders. Interior upgrades include power driver and passenger seating made with rich Nappa leather and Alcantara etched with the Daytona logo. Further along, a premium-stitched dash panel with gloss black instrument cluster rings, a power tilt and telescoping steering wheel are welcomed features that only add to the prestige of this special edition. 

Additional Enhanced Features 

It wouldn’t be a special edition without some new exterior features. The Daytona Special Edition adds upper and lower LED lighting in the front of the cabin also has illuminated rear cupholders. The power driver’s seat also adds memory functions for the driver’s seat, radio, and outside mirrors, plus black-edge premium floor matting. Each Charger will gain upgrades to the side mirrors that will automatically adjust downward if the driver puts the transmission in reverse. An automatic-dimming driver’s side mirror is also included. The Charger R/T includes 20 x 9-inch Lights Out painted wheels, a heated steering wheel and security alarm. 

There is a slight difference with the Charger Scat Pack driving on 20 x 9.5-inch forged and painted aluminum wheels. There are also  more satin black decals on the roof and the hood on top of a Daytona badge on the grille. The mirrors for the Scat Pack are more luxurious than on the R/T, not just powered and heated mirrors but they can fold-in as well. There are a couple added safety features found in the Scat Pack, including blind-spot warning. Owners of the Scat Pack receive a Daytona badge on the instrument panel that looks sharp with its Carbonite accents throughout the interior. We don’t think an owner can go wrong with either option!

Get Into the Beautiful Daytona Special Edition

The 2020 Daytona Edition Package will be available in any of the 12-strong color palettes. Several new color options are available for the 2020 Charger including Frostbite, Hellraisin, and Sinamon Stick. The 2020 Charger R/T Daytona begins at $41,385 (Destination fee included), the 2020 Charger Scat Pack Daytona starts at $44,985 (Destination fee included). Both are ready for purchase later during the second quarter of 2020. Hoping to drive a new Dodge muscle car?

Then and Now: Dodge Charger Daytona

The Dodge Charger Daytona is among the most storied muscle cars ever produced. Since the first 1969 Dodge Charger came out, the Dodge Charger Daytona has remained popular over generations thanks to its unique look and immense speed garnered since inception. The first run only lasted an additional model year, but the first two renditions of this popular muscle vehicle are still cherished by car enthusiasts today. The vehicle was reincarnated over 27 years later in 2006 and the popular HEMI engine drove sales for an additional four years, ending its run in 2009. There was a single addition of the Dodge Charger Daytona that came out in 2013. Since 2017, there have been continual models released, most recently, the 2017 Dodge Charger.

The Birth of the Dodge Charger Daytona

After the limited edition 1969 Dodge Charger 500 failed to win after its NASCAR debut, the 1969 Dodge Charger Daytona was made. Built as a high-performance, limited-edition version of the Dodge Charger, the Daytona was produced in the summer of 1969 with the sole goal of taking first place at high-profile NASCAR events. Not only did the Charger succeed in winning its first race, the inaugural Talladega 500, the Dodge Charger Daytona was the first vehicle in NASCAR history to break the 200 mph mark, on March 24, 1970, at Talladega, Alabama. Quickly becoming known as the “Winged Warrior” Dodge Charger has a strong history of winning. With 11 years of racing during the 1960s and 1970s, the Charger won 124 NASCAR Cup races and took three drivers to five championships. Richard Petty won three of his seven total NASCAR titles behind the wheel of a Dodge Charger.

27 Years Later, the Dodge Charger Daytona Returns

At the 2005 Chicago Auto Show, the 2006 Dodge Charger Daytona was reintroduced. From the reincarnation of the Dodge Charger Daytona in 2006 through it’s run in 2009, the sales and demand for the Charger Daytona were incredible. It came complete with a black honeycomb grille, unique black “Daytona” and “HEMI” decals. In 2007 through 2009, this special Charger rode on 20-inch wheels, raised from the 18-inch wheels the 2006 Dodge Charger Daytona came with. The five-speed automatic transmission paired with a 5.7-liter V8 HEMI engine that cranks out 340-horsepower and 390 lb-ft of torque was the power package of the 2006 Dodge Charger Daytona. This was improved upon later by the 2013 Dodge Charger Daytona.

2013 Dodge Charger Daytona

The debut of the 2013 Dodge Charger Daytona was enhanced and delivered improved performance. The 370-horsepower HEMI V8, rear-wheel drive and iconic design were met with the modern attributes of the Dodge Charger in 2013. The 10-speaker, 552-watt Beats audio system and 8.4-inch touchscreen infotainment is still impressive over half a decade later. While Dodge announced they were taking a break from NASCAR, Dodge was still focused on putting out remarkable production muscle cars.

2017: A Return to Form

Dodge Charger fans had two variations to choose from in 2017 when the Dodge Charger Daytona returned to the lineup. The standard Daytona came with the impressive 5.7-Liter HEMI V8, and the Daytona 392 was equipped with a 6.4-Liter V8 HEMI engine. A black spoiler with wide, matte-black stripes stood out with a large black grille and SRT body kit. Available retro colors include Go Mango, Green Go, TorRed and Yellow Jacket. Today, the Daytona is a package option for the Dodge Charger. The Dodge Charger is expected to be in production through the 2021 model year. With a redesign scheduled for 2021, the Charger is set to be reworked and only time will tell if the Daytona namesake is kept. One thing is for sure, if the Daytona is removed, it’ll return at some point in the future.

FCA Could Bring Back the Barracuda Under the Dodge Name

Wednesday, July 5th, 2017
Miami Lakes Dodge Cuda

Well folks, the rumors of the Plymouth Barracuda coming back have been reignited. It was recently reported that the FCA group filed to trademark the name “Cuda,” just two years after trademarking the name “Barracuda,” with the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office. It looks like they’re covering all their bases to do one simple thing, bring the Barracuda back under the Dodge name (formerly Plymouth).

We can’t say anything is for sure. We don’t even know what a modern day Dodge Barracuda would look like. No one does. Besides, it’s just a rumor … but why trademark both names if the FCA doesn’t have any plans for it, hear what we’re saying? So, we won’t say it’s definitely happening, but we’re not gonna laugh it off either. The Barracuda is serious business, and we’ll tell you why.

The Plymouth Barracuda was the first, yes the first car to coin the term “pony car.” The term describes an affordable and compact car with plenty of style and the performance to go with it. Not many know this because around the same time the Plymouth Barracuda came out (1964), Ford also came out with the Mustang. Interestingly enough, the consumer reception over the Mustang actually created the pony car craze that evidently led into the muscle car race.

Now, after 43 years of its absence, the Barracuda may return to the streets. It makes sense for Dodge to slap a nameplate on it too. They’re already revived classics like the Dodge Challenger T/A and Dodge Charger Daytona. So it only seems logical for the muscle car brand we know and love today to bring back the vehicle that started it all. The only thing left to wonder about is when it will come out, and what platform of the Dodge brand will it share?

Rumors say the Dodge Cuda will be coming out in 2019, but the next-generation of the Dodge Challenger is set to come out around the year 2020, so it might wait on that; it’s a good chance since the new Challenger is rumored to share the platform of the Alfa Romeo Giorgio (another brand under the FCA umbrella). Will the Barracuda, or “Cuda” look anything like the new Challenger? Will it look more like the original model? Look at that picture above. Someone took some styling cues from Plymouth.

What do you think? Tell us on social media your hopes and ideas for the new Dodge Cuda.

The closer we get to 2017, the more exciting news Dodge has to share with us. Not too long ago it was announced that Dodge will be reviving the Dodge Charger Daytona and the Dodge Challenger T/A, and more recently we learned about two new Challenger models being added to the lineup. Oh, and there’s exciting talk about a potential new Dodge Barracuda? Details below.

Six Dodge Models coming up

The 2017 Challenger T/A, the Challenger T/A Plus, the Charger Daytona, and the Charger Daytona 392 are models based off of their original predecessors more than four decades ago, and are getting a facelift in the process. Recently, Dodge unveiled two more models for the 2017 model year Challenger lineup.

When the 900-horsepower Challenger concept was shown off by Prior-Design, a lot of people had their hopes up that something similar would be released on a larger scale. Well, it seems the people at Dodge were listening, because Dodge has added some additional performance and style to the 2017 Challenger lineup with a Challenger ADR and Challenger GT AWD.
