2020 Dodge Charger Hellcat Gets 10 Extra Horsepower with Daytona Package

by Patrick Rall on

The original Dodge Charger Daytona was introduced back in 1969 so to celebrate its 50th anniversary, the company is rolling out the Daytona 50th Anniversary Edition for the 2020 Charger SRT Hellcat Widebody. Limited to just 501 units, this package comes with a unique tail stripe, a unique wheel finish, a package-exclusive offering of B5 Blue and – most importantly – 10 extra horsepower.

“The Dodge brand continues to push the boundaries of performance with the most powerful and fastest mass-produced sedan in the world, the Charger SRT Hellcat Widebody,” said Tim Kuniskis, Global Head of Alfa Romeo and Head of Passenger Cars – Dodge, SRT, Chrysler and FIAT, FCA – North America. “Today, with the introduction of the limited-production Charger SRT Hellcat Widebody Daytona, we are both recognizing the Dodge brand’s performance heritage and staying true to our roots by offering high-performance, collectible vehicles that continue to defy the trends and deliver attainable performance that can’t be found anywhere else.”

Daytona Edition Appearance

On the outside, the 2020 Charger Hellcat Daytona 50th Anniversary Edition is available in B5 Blue, Pitch Black, Triple Nickel and White Knuckle, with B5 Blue being exclusive to this package for 2020. The Daytona tail stripe is white on the blue, black and silver cars while the white Daytona Hellcats get a blue stripe. Also, the “Warp Speed” style wheels are finished in a unique Satin Carbon finish.

On the inside, the 50th Anniversary Daytona Edition comes with black Nappa leather and Alcantara suede performance seats with blue accent stitching and the Daytona logo embroidered into the seatback. Both front seats are heated and cooled, along with having 12-way power adjustment, while a suede headliner, a carbon fiber instrument panel, a flat-bottomed steering wheel and Light Black Chrome accents tie everything together.

Finally, the 50th Anniversary Daytona Edition has a unique badge on the passenger’s side of the dashboard, sporting the Hellcat logo, the Daytona logo and the serial number of each vehicle out of 501.

More Rev, More Power

Last, but most certainly not least, the 2020 Charger Hellcat Daytona 50th Anniversary Edition gets an increase of 10 horsepower over the “standard” Hellcat Charger. This increase was achieved by increasing the redline to 6,100rpm, which lifts the peak output to 717 horsepower rather than 707. Torque remains unchanged at 650 lb-ft.

We don’t know how much the 2020 Dodge Charger Hellcat Daytona 50th Anniversary Edition will cost when it goes on sale later this year, but we can expect that it will be at the top end of the Hellcat-powered sedan range. Expect the first units of the widebody Hellcat Charger to reach dealerships early in 2020.
