Chrysler has been renowned for making some of the industry's outstanding automobile models such as the Chrysler Concorde, PT Cruiser, Sebring, 300, Pacifica and Town & Country. From the time it was established in the year 1925 until the time it was merged with the Daimler-Benz Corporation to form the DaimlerChrysler Corporation in 1998, Chrysler never ceased to come up with several brilliantly engineered automobiles. One of which is the Daytona. Although the name Daytona was already seen around in the late '60s and the early '90s, it was nonetheless officially introduced by Chrysler in 1984. The name was taken from the Daytona 500 race in the famous Daytona Beach in Florida, an early NASCAR auto racing center.
Daytona models were called as Chrysler Daytona, Dodge Daytona, Chrysler GS or Chrysler Laser. Chrysler Daytona was conceptualized as a high-performance real quick sports car. It was basically a front-wheel drive hatchback that is based on the Chrysler G platform, which was also taken from the Chrysler K platform. Production period for it lasted for a decade when it was replaced already by the Dodge Avenger. Available powerplants for it are 2.2-liter KI4, 2.2-liter Turbo I I4, 2.2-liter Turbo II I4, 2.2-liter Turbo III I4, 2.2-liter Turbo IV I4, 2.5-liter K I4, 2.5-liter Turbo I4, 2.5-liter Mitsubishi 6G72 V6 engine. On the other hand, available transmissions for it include 5-speed A520, A523, A525 and A568 manual, 3-speed A413 and A470 automatic, and 4-speed A604 automatic.
Through the years, Chrysler Daytona underwent several minor and significant changes. Variation of trim and model options, incorporation of additional accessories, and upgrade in power output are some of the notable changes made for first generation Daytonas. In 1987, Daytona had a facelift particularly the use of pop-up headlight. And for the final years, the pop-up headlights were replaced with rounded ones together with a fresh grille and new back appearance. After which, Daytona was finally discontinued in 1993 to give way for the Dodge Avenger.
