Building on its
storied legacy of power and performance, Dodge is bringing the
historic Daytona nameplate to the Dodge Ram line of pickup trucks.
The limited-edition 2005 Dodge Ram Daytona, with legendary HEMI®
power and bold Daytona-inspired styling, draws further attention to
the Ram 1500's leadership claim as the most powerful light-duty
pickup truck on the market. "The all-new, limited-edition 2005 Dodge
Ram Daytona has a bold, race-inspired attitude for customers seeking
a performance-packaged pickup like no other," said Darryl Jackson,
Vice President, Dodge Marketing, Chrysler Group. "With 20-inch
chrome wheels, a unique custom paint job and a huge rear spoiler,
the Dodge Ram Daytona will turn heads on the street and on the track
The 2005 Dodge Ram Daytona is instantly recognizable with its
massive 11-inch rear spoiler and complementary flat-black graphics
on the bed sides, reminiscent of the 1969 winged Dodge Charger.
Other noticeable features include a performance-style hood scoop,
rear side-exiting twin chrome tips from the Borla® exhaust,
body-colored grille and tail lamp guards, and 20-inch chrome-clad
aluminum wheels. Two compelling colors will be offered with the
all-new 2005 Dodge Ram Daytona: Go ManGo! or Silver Metallic. The
exterior color also appears on the center bezel on the dash. The
2005 Dodge Ram Daytona will be a limited-edition model, and will
feature a numbered plaque on the dash.
The 2005 Ram Daytona is available as a
4x4 or 4x2 and in regular cab or Quad Cab® body styles with the
six-foot, three-inch bed. The regular cab features molded side sills
while the Quad Cab includes a running board.
Included in the Daytona package is the 5.7-liter HEMI engine with
345 horsepower and 375 lb.-ft of torque coupled with a 5-speed
automatic transmission and 3.92:1 rear axle ratio. The first 75
production 2005 Ram Daytona models debuted just prior to the Florida
Dodge Dealers 250 NASCAR Craftsman Truck Series race at Daytona
International Speedway Feb. 18, 2005. Prior to the race, Dodge Ram
Daytona models with plaque numbers one through 75 took a ceremonial
parade lap to mark the vehicle's "special delivery" to the Southeast
regional Dodge dealers.
