First Look At The New 2024 Charger Daytona SRT, And Dodge Is Considering This Concept To Replace The Challenger and Charger
Dodge on Wednesday unveiled a new concept car called the Charger Daytona SRT as a preview of its first all-electric muscle car, expected in 2024, DETROIT Today. and here we are going to give you the very First Look At The New 2024 Charger Daytona SRT.
The two-door coupe is the first look at what the forthcoming vehicle, which will replace Dodge’s current gas powered Challenger and Charger muscle cars, is expected to look like. The car also features several new technologies meant to make it feel and drive like a traditional muscle car.
“This car, we believe, will redefine American muscle,” Dodge CEO Tim Kuniskis
The concept vehicle looks like a futuristic yet retro, version of the current Dodge Challenger with a more aerodynamic, but muscular design. Most notably, the front end features a large opening for air to pass through, which the company is calling a “R-Wing.”
The multispeed transmission and exhaust are especially unique, since electric vehicles drive in only one “gear” and are relatively silent aside from required safety noises.
The front wing as well as the vehicle’s “Fratzonic Chambered Exhaust” and “eRupt” multispeed transmission – names fitting for “Back to the Future” movies – are patent pending, according to the company.

More On The Production Details
Kuniskis said the 2024 production electric muscle car is expected to launch with three different performance levels but eventually expand to nine. The concept car features an 800-volt “Banshee” propulsion system.
Dodge declined to release expected performance metrics for the concept car or the yet-to-be-named production muscle car.
The forthcoming EV in 2024 will replace Dodge’s gas-powered Charger and Challenger muscle cars, which the automaker on Monday said would be discontinued at the end of 2023.

The Charger Daytona SRT is an electric performance coupe meant to carry the torch passed by the outgoing Charger and Challenger. The Daytona SRT will have an 800-volt electrical architecture called Banshee. Powertrain specs aren’t available, but Dodge claims it will be faster than a Hellcat.
$34,000 to $48,477
Prices for a used Dodge Charger Daytona 392 currently range from $34,000 to $48,477, with vehicle mileage ranging from 13,833 to 93,467.
Inspired by the tall wing of the original 1969 Charger Daytona, the first NASCAR vehicle to hit 200 mph, the Daytona SRT has a front opening called the R-Wing. The R-Wing is meant to provide better aerodynamics and enhance downforce, assisted by four intakes on the car’s front and rear.
(“Fratzonic” is a reference to a logo Dodge used in the 1960s and ’70s called the “Fratzog,” — a word made up by a designer. It features a split deltoid made of three arrowhead shapes that form a three-pointed star.) The new system pushes sound through an amplifier and tuning chamber located at the rear of the vehicle.
