Dodge Charger Carries Half Value A Decade Later

Monday, April 4th, 2022

When we speak about the Dodge brand, we are usually inclined to note the tremendous resale value Dodge muscle cars keep. The news came this week of a decade-old Dodge Charger Daytona that was first introduced as an emblem of the racing legacy from their famed 1960s era muscle cars. Keep in mind that the Charger was prohibited by NASCAR 50 years ago. The 1969 Dodge Charger Daytona was an enormous hit and the V8 HEMI put in this Dodge helped make the vehicle a massive triumph. In fact, the Daytona was recently produced again by Dodge and offered more than 200 mph speed! So, ten years afterward we are interested in the ROI (return on investment) for this 2013 Charger Daytona. 

The Expansion of V8 Strength 

What started as the Dodge muscle car delivering strength became consumers eventually having entry to superiorly robust engines with the expansion of V8 motors. Those V8s began a movement from those initial Chargers to the ones that symbolized ever so noticeably how far Dodge had come with the 2013 Daytona back then and in the SRT, SRT Hellcat, and SRT Hellcat Redeye assortment of muscle cars we see today. While we have witnessed the special plans Dodge has made to push forward electrified technology in their muscle cars, let us examine the 2013 Dodge Charger Daytona further. 

Dodge Excellence Remains

Of course Dodge has discovered ways to rejuvenate and drum into previous generations, delivering throwback appearance packages of their famed vehicles, just like the 2013 Dodge Charger Daytona. The 2013 variation held four body color options including pitch black, bright white, billet silver, and Daytona blue. Owners enjoy the 5.7-Liter V8 engine that races from 0 to 60 MPH in 6 seconds. The nifty 20-inch polished aluminum wheels sold with glossed back inlays, gloss black wing mirrors, front grille, side skirts, and various rear bumper inserts. The interior carries the Nappa leather selection still found in the highest tier muscle cars produced by Dodge. Owners note a not-bad-for-2020-standards with their 2012 produced 8.4-inch touchscreen infotainment system, however the 10 speaker, 552 watt Beats audio system still maintains as outstanding no matter how much time goes on by. Dodge is skilled at offering vehicles that last the test of time. 

Dodge Maintains Value For Years

Sometimes the greatest way to keep people intrigued is by staying ahead of the game or offering a unique vehicle option. Only 2,500 of these 2013 Dodge Charger Daytona models were created in 2012, acting as a way to offer upscale cars to help garner appeal. The result is about 50% value retained, even after a decade passing by. The $15,000 price point is quite impressive, as the vehicle was $32,000 MSRP in 2012. The value might increase to even loftier peaks with the EVs coming and gasoline cars set to become an infrequent find as this century goes on. For those glancing at the upcoming future of the Dodge line-up, like the 2023 Dodge Hornet anticipated to come out this year, we have all the news breaking and vehicles ready to go at Miami Lakes Automall!

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.

Classic Car Features Still Kicking Today

Miami Lakes Classic Car Features Dodge

Over the years, decades, heck since the beginning of the 20th century, car design has changed and evolved quite a bit. A lot of original car features have disappeared through the years, and some of those changes were probably for the best because some were downright ridiculous. Others on the other hand, some car features common on once classic cars still appear today. You may even be surprised to know some of the new-age designs we’re seeing now are just copies of old features that fizzled out before they became popular.

Round Headlights

Today, round headlights are definitely not as common as they were previous to the ‘80s. Most headlights are square or slanted, and that design looks pretty neat. Look at the Dodge Charger for instance; although a sedan, the slanted headlights and front fascia really make the car look like more of a muscle car. However, the Dodge Challenger still keeps its round headlights in pretty much all of its trims, and the look is as iconic as the name itself. With the new Dodge Challenger T/A coming back for 2017, that’s a double-whammy: a classic car with classic features.

Automatic Headlights

Surprise! Didn’t think this was a classic feature, eh? Yeah, automatic headlights were introduced by General Motors in the ‘60s, but they didn’t work that well. The lights were temperamental and inconvenient most of the time, so they pittered out until technology became more refined and such a system could work without fail. Now that vehicles are basically run by computers and have sensors, automatic headlights have been redesigned and work effectively; aside from sensing daylight, the headlights also turn on in dimly lit areas such as tunnels and parking garages.
