Dodge Charger Daytona SRT Game Changer Brings 3 Core Features

The Dodge Charger Daytona SRT concept was unveiled yesterday at the M1 Concourse in Pontiac, Michigan. This battery-electric muscle car previews the brand’s electric future when it will take the place of a gasoline Charger SRT Hellcat.

The Dodge Charger Daytona SRT Concept surpasses the Hellcat-powered Dodge in key performance measures: it is faster, more all-weather capable, and aerodynamic. Its exterior styling incorporates Dodge heritage cues, like a Fratzog emblem borrowed from Dodges of 1962-1976.

The interior is driver-centric, with displays, sounds, and lighting to be changed inside and out by one push of a button. There is a panoramic roof and four separate seats, two rear ones can be folded into a flat floor.

In the cabin, there is a 16-inch curved virtual instrument panel and a central 12.3-inch multimedia screen. An 8.0-inch head-up display is also available. A transmission shifter is a carryover from a classic Dodge.

The Dodge Charger Daytona SRT Concept is powered by an 800-volt twin-engine Banshee propulsion system whose output is expected to exceed 700 hp.

There are three core features the model is distinguished with:

  • R-Wing – an aerodynamic pass-through design feature connecting the car to the Dodge Daytona namesake;
  • Fratzonic Chambered Exhaust – an industry-first system that reaches 126 dB and makes the car sound as loud as a Hellcat
  • eRupt – a multi-speed transmission with electro-mechanical shift

The Dodge Charger Daytona SRT is possibly based on the STLA Large modular architecture, so it is potentially able to cover up to 500 miles (800 km) on a single charge.

A production version of the model should hit the market in 2024, assumedly in coupe, liftback, or sedan forms.
