  • Welcome to Forever Pontiac

    We are a community of Pontiac enthusiasts. The purpose of our community is to keep alive the Pontiac spirit by sharing (or showing off) our cars, discussing Pontiac, helping each other work on our cars and find information, plus attend various meets/shows/etc... To aid discussion, sharing, event planning and selling of parts/cars/anything, we have various parts of the website to aid this from Forums to an online Garage to Classifieds to even a Document Download Repository. You can find links to these in our navigation above based on what each section helps with (discussion, local events, learning, etc...).

    We invite you to contribute, find help or just view some of our member's amazing cars! Don't forget, we also have great contests from time to time (like our Pontiac of the Month and yearly calendar contest) and our Pontiac This OR That, a fun game where you choose the best of two randomly selected Pontiacs from our online garage.

    We look forward to seeing you around!

Car and Driver: If You Ain’t First, You’re Last: Dodge Unveils 2017 Charger Daytona

Recommended Posts

The Dodge Charger Daytona is back for 2017. Last seen in the 2013 model year, the car takes its inspiration from the big-winged Charger Daytona coupe that Dodge built in 1969 for NASCAR racing.

-

Starting at $41,235, the Charger Daytona wears front- and rear-end bodywork that mimics its SRT and R/T Scat Pack brethren; however, the Daytona plows its own styling path by including model-specific matte-black design details including a rear spoiler, roof, a “Hemi” graphic on the center-mounted hood scoop bulge, and “Daytona” graphics on the rear quarter-panel.

-

Two Daytona models will be available: the Daytona and the Daytona 392. Dodge’s 5.7-liter V-8 powers the former, while the brand’s 6.4-liter V-8 motivates the latter. Both engines benefit from an intake capped with a Mopar conical air filter, as well as a burly, performance exhaust system. Both are the same V-8s are you’ll find in their respective non-Daytona counterparts, which make 370 and 485 horsepower in the 2016 models.

A standard eight-speed automatic transmission puts power to the ground no matter which Daytona you opt for. Keeping the performance theme intact is Dodge’s Super Track Pak, which brings a stiffer suspension, better brake linings, a three-mode stability-control system with a dedicated “off” function, and high-performance tires.

-

Inside, the Daytona is fitted with power-adjustable, heated and cooled front seats. Gold accent stitching is used throughout the interior, including for the embroidered Daytona logos on the front seats. A Daytona badge is also present on the instrument panel. Additional kit includes a power-adjustable steering column, driver’s seat memory, HID headlights, LED interior lighting, and rear parking sensors.

While the Charger Daytona rides on a set of 20-by-9-inch, 12-spoke Mopar wheels finished in black, the Daytona 392 sits on a chunky set of 20-by-9.5-inch forged aluminum wheels, also black. Other 392-specific features include “392” fender decals, a 220-amp alternator, and a 180-mph speedometer.

-

Opting for the more powerful Daytona 392 will cost consumers $46,090, or $4855 more than the standard car. The Dodge Charger Daytona and Daytona 392 go on sale next month.
