The 2013 Dodge Charger R/T was introduced at the 2012 Los Angeles International Auto Show last week. The vehicle is the re-introduction of the Charger Daytona and will be available in Charger R/T and Charger R/T Road & Track trim levels.
“With its 370 horsepower HEMI V8, rearwheel 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.”
The 2013 Dodge Charger Daytona, say Dodge officials, is meant to bring back the unique style of the historic Daytona package with all the modern performance and technology offered in the current Charger lineup. Only 2,500 units of the Daytona will be produced in this limited-production run.
The Daytona will be available in a unique color palette of Daytona Blue, Bright White, Billet Silver or Pitch Black.
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 fivespoke polished aluminum wheels with Gloss Black painted pockets.
Daytona models will 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.
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.
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. Content provided coutesy of Detroit Auto
