Dodge Charger Daytona and Challenger T/A making a comeback

640 × 480
FCA have announced they are bringing back the Dodge Charger Daytona and Challenger T/A for the 2017 model year. Two of the hottest trims Dodge made were sorely missed and we are glad they are making a comeback. It shows FCA are listening to their fans and responding appropriately.

2017 Dodge Charger Daytona
We don’t yet know all the details on the 2017 Dodge Charger Daytona, but what we know so far looks good. The new model will have a rear wing, black roof, black alloy wheels and black graphics to make it stand out visually from standard models.

It will also feature either a 6.5-litre V8 engine or a 6.4-litre V8 in the Daytona 392. Both will have upgraded exhaust system, performance tyres, brakes and gearing. The 392 will also have a limited-slip differential, Brembo brakes and 20 inch alloy wheels.

2017 Challenger T/A
The 2017 Challenger T/A will be offered above the R/T spec. It will feature a hood vent, a wider stance and unique body kit items. It will also feature Air Catcher headlights and unique graphics.

There will be either a 5.7-litre HEMI engine or the same 6.4-litre as the 392 and will be called the Challenger 392. The 2017 Challenger T/A will also have an active exhaust system, Super Track Pack with lowered suspension, upgraded dampers and uprated brakes.

Here is a quick video showing the unveil of the 2017 Dodge Charger Daytona and the 2017 Challenger T/A.

While neither model was short on performance variants, there was something about the Daytona and T/A trims that resonated well. Neither looks any cooler than the other, or performs much better than other special editions or HEMI-engined cars, yet there was something special about each. Maybe it was a heritage thing. Who knows?

Both vehicles will be available from October 2016. Watch for a more in-depth look at each when I get my hands on one.

In the meantime, there are plenty of both Challenger and Charger variants with enough power to enjoy.
