NEW 2017 Dodge Charger Daytona - Walkaround and Accelerations
Delivering the most performance in the 5.7-liter Charger lineup, the new 2017 Charger Daytona builds on the Charger R/T model by improving the engine’s intake and exhaust with a Mopar cold-air induction system with conical air filter; plus an all-new electronically controlled 2.75-inch active performance exhaust system with 4-inch round tips. Also included is the Super Track Pak with its performance-tuned suspension, performance brake linings, three-mode ESC calibration with “full off” and high-performance Goodyear Eagle F1 tires. For improved acceleration and speed, Charger Daytona includes a rear differential with a 2.62 axle ratio, plus performance engine and transmission calibration with a high-speed engine controller (150 mph, up from 135 mph).
For a menacing look, the new Charger Daytona includes SRT- and R/T Scat Pack-inspired front and rear performance fascias, performance side sills and a one-piece Satin Black performance spoiler. A Satin Black hood graphic with cutout “HEMI” logo highlights the aluminum hood’s NACA duct, while cutout “Daytona” deck-lid to rear-quarter graphics are paired with the Satin Black roof treatment for a bold, heritage-inspired appearance. Completing the athletic styling are wider 20 x 9-inch Mopar lightweight forged-aluminum wheels finished in Hyper Black II, P245/45ZR20 Goodyear all-season performance tires (three-season tires are optional) with the new center caps that feature the Dodge stripes, plus signature “Daytona” grille badging.
The new Dodge Charger Daytona’s interior is highlighted by unique Black heated and ventilated Nappa leather performance seats with horizontal Alcantara suede plowthroughs with Brazen Gold accent stitching, “Daytona” embroidered seat backs and 12-way power adjust for driver and front passenger. Use of Brazen Gold accent stitching also is added to the center console armrest, along with door panels and door panel armrests for even more detail. All-new Carbonite authentic aluminum interior bezels and Gloss Black interior accents are paired to the Dodge performance steering wheel with performance contouring provide an athletic look. Completing the high level of standard equipment are premium velour-bound floor mats with embroidered Dodge logo, bright performance pedals and “Daytona” instrument panel badge.
Additional premium content over the Charger R/T model includes driver’s seat memory and steering column with memory, bi-function high-intensity discharge (HID) projector headlamps, LED ambient cabin lighting, ParkSense rear park assist system and vehicle security alarm.
