We have had every thrilling reason to be overly excited about the “Last Call” special editions here at Landmark Dodge of Morrow, as a few of the last renditions of the Dodge Charger will soon hit the pavement. The latest edition is the 2023 Charger King Daytona, which is based on the widebody SRT Hellcat Redeye. The King Daytona will boast an extra 10 horsepower for a grand total of 807 and is powered by the supercharged 6.2-liter V8.
On top of soaring past the 800-horsepower mark, the Charger King Daytona is dipped in a vibrant hue of Go Mango, with six-piston Brembo brake calipers sporting a matching orange coating. There are also matte-black graphics on the hood, roof, and rear spoiler that brandishes the “King Daytona” namesake. There are a few more very awesome exterior details, including multi-spoke 20-inch rims and badges in satin chrome, drawing a large amount of inspiration from the West Coast drag racing scene in the ‘60s and ‘70s.
Once inside, you’ll notice the very becoming black Nappa Leather blending with microsuede accents, along with orange contrast stitching throughout the car’s exterior color. There’s also a custom “Daytona” logo on the front seats, and a “King Daytona” badge on the dashboard, along with a microsuede steering wheel and headliner, carbon-fiber-look trim, and a booming and surreal Harman Kardon sound system. There will only be 300 copies of this captivating and commemorative model released, and the order books will be fully open and ready for eager customers this fall.
Known for its awesome customization options and old-school driving experience, the huge V8s have long been major sellers. A very fun and large car that always gets going in a hurry, the Scat Pack test car for the Edmunds.com car review crew quickly got up to 60 mph in just 4.6 seconds and came to a stop at just 102 feet. Dodge’s Uconnect system has frequently been ranked as one of the best around, responding quickly to inputs and music collections at high speed.
The 2023 Charger provides a useful collection of driver safety aids including adaptive cruise control, forward collision mitigation, and lane keeping assist, with an average EPA fuel rating of 19 mpg combined. Adding the Widebody Package always ups the ante for thrills and segment-leading performance with adaptive suspension, high-performance brakes, and grippier tires built for the many challenges of the track. Rear-wheel drive comes as standard, with the SXT and GT trims offering all-wheel drive as an option. Other very appealing and soon-to-be-collectible special edition selections are the Blacktop Package, Performance Handling Group, Driver Convenience Group, and Navigation and Travel Group, which features an upgraded touchscreen and integrated navigation.
