    LOS ANGELES – The 2013 Dodge Charger R/T is one of the best performance sedan values on the market, and now it's about to get even more distinctive. Debuting at the 2012 Los Angeles International Auto Show is the re-introduction of the legendary Charger Daytona. Available in Charger R/T and Charger R/T Road & Track trim levels, the 2013 Dodge Charger Daytona brings back the unique style of the historic Daytona package with all the modern performance and technology offered in the current Charger line-up. Just 2,500 units of the Daytona will be produced in this limited-production run – each with a serialized dash plaque.

    "With its 370 horsepower HEMI V-8, rear-wheel drive and iconic design, the 2013 Dodge Charger is a modern day muscle car, and the new Charger Daytona takes it to a new level by paying homage to the historic 'Daytona' nameplate," said Reid Bigland, President and CEO, Dodge Brand. "It starts with a legendary HEMI underfoot and one-of-a-kind interior and exterior styling enhancements that perfectly combine heritage, performance and value, starting under $33,000 MSRP."

    Available in a unique color palette of Daytona Blue, Bright White, Billet Silver or Pitch Black, the Daytona package features special dark trim that builds upon the Charger's iconic muscle car design. Satin Black adorns the front crosshair grille with heritage "R/T" badge, the custom vinyl hood graphic, roof wrap, rear R/T spoiler and the "DAYTONA" graphic on the rear quarter panels. The Daytona features exclusive 20-inch five-spoke polished aluminum wheels with Gloss Black painted pockets.

    Daytona models also include a 'Daytona Blue' engine cover, performance 3.06 rear axle ratio, high-speed engine controller, paddle shifters with sport mode and performance steering and suspension.

    The Charger Daytona's interior on the Road & Track features unique black performance Nappa leather and suede heated and ventilated seats with Daytona Blue stitching and piping. Similarly, the Daytona on the R/T offers the same appearance in a custom sport cloth seat. "DAYTONA" is embroidered in blue into the upper front seat backs. Unique dark brushed aluminum trim surrounds the 8.4-inch Uconnect Touch screen and gauges on the instrument panel, as well as the trim around the shifter and cup holders on the center console. Finishing touches include a Mopar bright pedal kit, a 552-watt 10-speaker Beats Audio System and a special numbered "DAYTONA" badge on the instrument panel that features the build number of that specific Charger Daytona model.

    Built at Chrysler Group LLC's Brampton, Ontario, Assembly Plant, the 2013 Dodge Charger Daytona arrives at Dodge dealerships nationwide in the first quarter of 2013 with a Manufacturer's Suggested Retail Price (MSRP) of $32,990 for R/T and $36,495 for R/T Road &Track Daytona models.

  2. let me guess. huge, heavy, lazy engine, sportmeh interior, way too much money.

    *reads article*

  3. That interior looks horrible.
  4. What disorder and big rob said.

    Wow. At this point chrysler looks like, 8 years behind Ford.
  5. no rediculous wing no care
  6. Those seats make me want to cut carbs. #$%#.
  7. It is slightly ironic that Dodge is set to unveil the "Charger Daytona" the week after they exit NASCAR, from which the Daytona moniker comes from.
  9. I agree with everything said here except the price, $33,000 is cheap. The same money here will buy you a 1.6 Ford Focus in Titanium X spec.
  10. Those seats are for their target audience - the gigantic fat white dude (hat to the back, chinstrap beard, white hater blockers, keep Rollin Rollin Rollin) who DJs at the bar in the same neighborhood he went to high school (such glory years filled with epic win, still dates chicks at said high school), and then for the black guy who's going to buy it used thirteen years later and piss me off by going 94 weaving in and out sans turn signal in a 55 zone. Will also probably use the berm to circumnavigate the rush hour congestion as I curse to the heavens about there never being a cop around when its most needed.

    I'm not racist though, my best friend used to be black. Unfortunately he's in jail now for 2 & 1/2 years for not paying child support.

    Back to the car, not really a fan! Chrysler is unfixable
  11. If you think thats bad, you should see what the charger interior used to look like
  12. The interior's not THAT bad.
  13. which one? the new one or the old one?
  14. I could land an airplane on that swath of black plastic on the passenger side. And you know it rattles. Oh, it rattles.

  17. Surely, but they look pretty similar.
  19. I love the S70R though. Too bad they were never imported to the US.
  20. The new one. The old one makes the baby Jesus cry.
  21. holy
  22. Agreed, new one isnt terrible. Im amazed how far interiors have come in the past 5 years. Especially in American and Korean cars.
  23. american cars have now been overtaken by korean cars, lol

    edit: in 15 years time i bet chinese cars will be on the same level as american cars
  24. I'd say theyre on par right now. At least Ford and Hyundai/kia
  25. Dodger Chargers are not bad as police cars, but otherwise they're meh.
