1986 Dodge Daytona Overview

With subtle nods back to the Daytona race car, the 1986 Dodge Daytona hatchback is an impressive little street racer masquerading as a practical economy starter car. And by practical, we mean fun. In 1986, there was only the base and Turbo Z trims. While the rumbling monster turbo 2.2-liter, 146-hp engine remained unchanged, the base got a new engine, a 2.5-liter I4 that hit 100-hp. A 5-speed manual came standard, with optional 3-speed auto.

For the 1986 Daytona Turbo Z only, a special C/S Hangling Package was offered. Though he had no invovlement, the C/S stood for Carroll Shelby, and the package feaured a sports-tuned suspension, with performance struts and tires, bigger stabilizer bars in front and back, and Recaro sports seats.

The base model hatchback came standard with a radio this year, as well as a rear defogger and intermittent wipers. Power locks and windows were optional. A government required center brake light was also added to the 1986 Daytona. The Turbo Z featured racing stripes and Z badging on the taillights. Many owners bought the Turbo Z for its performance and handling, and the C/S package didn't disaapoint. The 1986 Daytona holds up well, say owners, and is also a popular car to modify.
