Dodge Charger Daytona R/T
Big, bold, powerful and full-of-life — that’s always been Dodge DNA. Now, that DNA is being passed on to the all-new 2006 Dodge Charger, which offers an exciting new choice in the passenger car market.
“Dodge Charger delivers a bold, powerful, capable four-door sedan, combined with the ride and handling of a sports car,” said Darryl Jackson, Vice President – Dodge Marketing, Chrysler Group. “Charger offers Dodge DNA in a modern muscle four-door sedan.”
As an American icon, the Dodge Charger lives on. Although the original has been out of production for 28 years, 70 percent of U.S. car buyers are still aware of the name and correctly associate it with the Dodge brand.
The 2006 Dodge Charger Daytona R/T package is a performance, heritage-inspired package available in limited numbers on the Dodge Charger R/T model. It offers muscle car fans exceptional performance attributes wrapped in bold, high-impact exterior colors and design cues. “Go ManGo!”, a modern orange metallic paint, and a bright yellow paint named “Top Banana” are the two colors featured for 2006.
“These bold paint colors with expressive names will bring back fond memories for many driving enthusiasts,” said Jackson. “We want to elicit some of the fun of driving bold and expressive cars like the new Dodge Charger Daytona R/T.”
The high-impact exterior paint schemes are accented by flat-black graphics that offer eye-popping, head-turning fun. But the bold and powerful features of the Dodge Charger Daytona R/T package are more than just skin deep. The 2006 Dodge Charger Daytona R/T package also includes large, 18-inch performance Michelin tires and polished aluminum wheels with black accents, 9-land performance steering gear, Nivomat self-sealing shock absorbers and a high-performance exhaust system providing a distinctive, throaty exhaust note. The specially tuned 5.7-liter HEMI V-8 engine that provides 350 horsepower and a HEMI-orange engine cover also are featured on the Dodge Charger Daytona R/T.
The interior of the 2006 Dodge Charger Daytona R/T features heated, performance front head rests with suede inserts and embroidered “Daytona” logos on front head restraints. Body-color accent stitching appears on front and rear seats and on the leather-wrapped steering wheel and shift knob. Matching body-colored center stack and shifter bezels, a “Daytona Limited Edition” display on the electronic cluster and a sequentially numbered limited-edition Daytona badge on the instrument panel highlight the unique Dodge Charger Daytona R/T package interior.
