2025 Dodge Charger Daytona.
This new photo shows the rear view of the all-new 2025 Dodge Charger. It even shows the “Daytona” name on the rear bumper, so we know there is at least one version called “Daytona”. Will it be a Charger Daytona, Challenger Daytona, or even a Cuda Daytona, who knows?
The photo also appears to show the EV version. I guess we’ll have to wait for the official unveiling to see if an ICE model will also be available or not. Otherwise, the pre-production car still looks extraordinarily close to the 2022 Charger Daytona concept. There is the obvious addition of a B-pillar. which is fine. What is not fine is the cheesy and cheap-looking spoiler we see in the photo. These never look good on anything and basically ruin a great design. Let’s hope this is only an option. The super clean retro-futuristic design of the concept speaks for itself and doesn’t need anything that atrocious add-on.
Let’s also hope Dodge finds it in its heart to keep most of the concept’s interior. Which is just fine. Just like the exterior, that interior is so much better than the new Mustang… Of course, the ghastly super-bright ambient light would have to go. And we know the rear seats will be replaced by a more conventional bench, which is fine. As long as it folds flat, the new Charger could even become a fantastic camping companion. A 21st-century muscle car you can take on a road trip.
Another thing about camping. Let’s hope all manufacturers adopt something similar to Tesla‘s great “Camp mode” that allows the car to keep warm or cool all night. I know it’s also available from Rivian, but why not in every EV?
Just imagine, a new Dodge Charger with “Camp mode”…
