Challenger T/A and Charger Daytona Models Return For 2019:

Repackaging Has Led To Confusion:

Since Fiat Chrysler Automobiles (FCA) released information of the upcoming 2019 Dodge Charger and Challenger last week, many people have reached out to us wondering what happened to the Charger Daytona and Challenger T/A models. The answer is… nothing. Both are returning for the 2019 model year.

For 2019, the Dodge brand has repackaged their lineups of the Dodge Charger and Challenger models. While the Dodge Charger Daytona and Dodge Challenger T/A return for 2019, they are not considered their own trim models now but as packages to other trim models. Confusing to many Dodge diehards.

Both Charger Daytona and Challenger T/A packages are available on R/T and R/T Scat Pack models.
