Dodge Daytona

If you thought the Daytona Chargers were over the top, then the Superbird be-winged Ram Daytona will leave your neck even redder. Autoblog caught this at the Detroit show, and Dodge released the stats today. Good thing: it is a limited run. Bad thing: silly 11-inch rear spoiler rendering bed use compromised. Two colors will be offered, Go ManGo! and silver metallic. You do get a Borla exhaust and 20-inch rims along with a hood scoop, Daytona stripes and badging on the headrests and floor mats and a numbered plaque to prove you're special. I bet you were wondering if you could get it in a quad cab weren't you? Dodge is making the Daytona package available in all types; 4x4 or 4x2, regular cad or quad cab. Prices start at $32,000.

      well.. i think the truck looks pretty cool.. they tried to make it look all fast.. but its only got a V-8 and it has a pussy engine compared to the SRT model trucks.. so why put the fast truck stuff on when its not that fast of a truck..

      I just purchased a 2005 Dodge Ram Daytona and I would love to find a set of headrests that have the Daytona script on them and also any accessories that I can find. I saw a Daytona and all the dash had been done in the Orange. Mine is also Orange. If anyone knows where I can find these please email me at kennybranning@yahoo.com Thanks.

      I just purchased the the Ram Daytona (w/Crew cab), what power and it looks very nasty. I just love this truck and I have seen some of the negative comments. Let me tell you, Ford and GM can't touch this truck for Power & Style. Ya, I bought it for both and this truck Rocks the party.

      The wing is too much. The stripe shouldn't be so wide and shouldn't be cut off short on the top and bottom. Hopefully the hoodscoop is a shaker hoodscoop.

      Bought 2005 Dodge Ram Daytona. Nice truck $13,800 off sticker of 36,800 Reg cab 124 miles so far. I put a 55 gallon drum in back for the gas. HaHa 20 inch tires and knock out rims.

      i've also purchased this fine vehicle and i can say that i have no regrets. let me tell you that it came in quite handy the other day when a friend of mine, who owns a ford f150, needed help being pulled out of a tight situation. so not only does this vehicle perform, but sounds great too!

      $32k for a regular cab 2wd truck? What is that, $6k for the tacky wing and $6k for the Borla exhaust?

      I just purchased a 2005 Dodge Daytona Ram 4X4, 1500, Hemi, Standard Cab, GoMango paint. This truck is fun!!! I really like the paint, the more I see it the more I like it. The power, ride and sound are very good. Lots of upsides and now a few downsides...at 400 miles getting 10 MPG most city some highway driving and the 5 speed auto is very slow to downshift, I have to stand on throttle to get it to downshift even when in the tow mode.

      I feel like I lost IQ points reading this. People making redneck and mullet jokes need to remember this is a throwback to to the Daytona. Just like the charger, gto, new mustang, etc. The wing blocks the bed? This is more of a collectors item, imho. Im getting one just to drive on nice days. The Daytona is my dream car, but since i have never seen one for under $250,000 that wont happen. The wing is not too much, actually, its 13 inches too short. Its 11 inches high, the Daytona was 2 feet. Read up on the car and races won. That wing on the Daytona got wings banned from Nascar because of the speeds they were able to get using it. As for the shaker hood, since this truck was done more for show, as opposed to the Daytona in 69 made for racing, I think it looks sharp, but you have a point. I understand people are not going to like it, but maybe I will grow my mullet back, maybe its coming back in style ;)

      Just drove an 05 Daytona Quad Cab in silver home today! Got 10 g's off the sticker... Damn fine truck man with the nicest leather trim package I've seen yet on any of the Daytona's! Got a lot of looks with it on the way home...some dude in a Chevy P/U got next to me and was checking it out so I nailed it ( it has a nice roar to it ) and watched him fade back in traffic...handles great, looks great and the broads dig it...

      I just bought the 2005 Daytona Ram quad cab 4X4 in GoManGo I traded an 03 Tahoe. I had an 00 Silverado prior.. This Ram rides, handles and has mucho more power than the Chevy's.. plus it is one sharp truck... go out and buy one while you can save 10k off sticker!
