The new 2017 Dodge Charger Daytona is finally here. The 2017 model of the Dodge Charger Daytona has borrowed a few aspects from its debut cousin produced in the year 1969. Its body-work in particular, mimics that of the SRT and R/T Scat Pack models, with a more modern out-look. Here are a few specifications to expect from this top of the range muscle sedan.
The Daytona, just like many of its predecessors will be produced as an eye-catching, 4 door sedan. Though it reflects a lot from the SRT and R/T models, the 2017 Dodge Charger Daytona model still maintains a lot of its own unique exterior features. In front, it comes with a pair of ultra thin attractive LED headlights which give it an aggressive look. The front bumper is well thought of to complement its front look with a pair of LED fog lights at the bottom. From the rear, the car boasts a huge attractive spoiler, and a pair of rear lights, giving it a similar attractive look at the back as it does from the front. The word 5111Dodge’ appears between the rear lights just above a beautiful rear bumper. This 5-door sedan has enough space in the trunk to house luggage suited for all its passengers. It will ride on 20 x 9-inch Mopar lightweight, forged-aluminum rims finished in Hyper Black II with Dodge stripes.
