RECAP: MoparInsiders.com Team Discuss The All-New Dodge Charger Daytona

Thanks to those of you who tuned in to our Livestream about the all-new, all-electric Dodge Charger Daytona. The new generation of Dodge Charger has been a controversial subject since its reveal on March 5th.

As the first all-electric Dodge vehicle, the new Charger Daytona represents a huge leap from the conventional muscle car. For 2024, Dodge will offer an all-new two-door model that replaces the outgoing Challenger. Offered in two initial trims – R/T and Scat Pack, the Daytona comes standard with a dual e-motor setup for standard all-wheel drive (AWD).

The initial 2024 models will come with Direct Connection eStage power upgrades as standard equipment. R/T models get an eStage 1 upgrade, which will boost the car’s total horsepower to 496 horsepower, a 40 horsepower improvement over the standard output of the 2025 car. An eStage 2 upgrade on the 2024 Daytona Scat Pack’s push horsepower to 670, an 80 horsepower difference over the standard 590 horsepower rating.

If you are looking for a family-oriented sedan, the 2025 Dodge Charger Daytona has you covered. Being the first all-electric four-door model in the Dodge portfolio, however, that car won’t be available until Q1 2025.

If electric isn’t your thing, then how about the new 420 horsepower Dodge Charger SIX PACK sedan or 550 horsepower Dodge Charger SIX PACK coupe? Both cars are powered by a duo of twin-turbocharged 3.0-liter HURRICANE I6 engines that replace the outgoing HEMI® engines in 2025.

Nice episode.
However I do gotta bring up some items:
Dodge wasn't successful full-line brand,it was a Subprime-Rental Queen hence FIAT took advantage of the legal agreements with dealers that had "Dodge Car"/"Dodge Trucks" and made RAM its own brand.

Dart/200 were low margin product, in segments where Mopar was historically losing in,and segments that was collapsing in volume.
@redriderbob I STRONGLY disagree that such offerings would have anything to with preventing dropping V8. GM has more credits to burn through because it didn't do things like Demon(very profitable projects when FCA was getting out of debt), or have European lineup that didn't meet standards (another source of emission Credit burn).

Finally outside of Tesla,all Automakers can be call laggers/followers in the past decade(you did call Mopar follower the last decade).However , it would a fiction of one's false imagination to even dream of Ford or especially GM as a leader/trend sitter.
The current RAM is a break through product in many ways: it was the end of RAM being a Truck that was sold on "Feature-to-Feature" thousands & thousands price discount spread vs F-Series(F-150).
