The Dodge Daytona is a front-wheel drive passenger car in a three-door hatchback, which was first introduced by the American car company Dodge in 1984. The hatchback was built on the Chrysler G platform, which in turn was developed on the basis of the Chrysler K platform. Initially, the engine's list of power units for the Dodge Daytona presented two engine options: the 4-cylinder Chrysler K engine with a 2.2-liter capacity and 93 hp. and its turbo version with a capacity of 142 hp. In 1986, a 2.5-liter Chrysler K engine with a capacity of 96 hp was proposed.

As for the transmission, for the entire production time, three transmission options were offered: a five-speed manual transmission, and three-and four-speed automatic transmissions. The brake system included front disc and rear drum brakes. In 1984, the Dodge Daytona was offered in three trim levels: basic, Turbo and Turbo Z. The Daytona Turbo version differed mainly in a turbocharged engine, while the Turbo Z also had external features: a spoiler, side skirts. But in 1985, the spoiler installed only on the Turbo Z version was offered for all configurations, and already in 1986 there were only two configurations left: the basic one and the Turbo Z.

Also this year, the manufacturer offered the T-roof as an option (there were only sold 5,984 copies with such a roof). In 1987, Dodge Daytona underwent some external changes, the main of which was the renewal of the front of the car. Previously, the deep-set headlights replaced the folding, and the grille disappeared altogether, which gave the car a more dynamic look. This year, there was also a new modification called Shelby Z, which included the new 2.2-liter Chrysler K Turbo II turbocharged engine, whose capacity was 175 hp, and the car was equipped with rear disc brakes. In 1990, a 3-liter power unit 6G72 SOHC V6 from Mitsubishi was offered for Daytona. Its power was 141 hp.

In 1992, the car was subjected to a rather serious restyling. Dodge Daytona received updated front and rear parts with new headlights and decorative elements, as well as the sides, which received new moldings. A new turbocharged version of the 2.2-liter Chrysler K engine also appeared, called the Turbo III, with a capacity of 224 hp. It is worth noting that in the period from 1984 to 1986.
