1992 Dodge Daytona Overview

If you're going to call yourself Daytona, you'd better be fast. Have no fear, the Daytona lives up to its name. In 1992, in addition to the base, ES, and IROC trims, mid-year Dodge introduced the IROC R/T, a performance Daytona housing an incredible 2.2-liter, 244-hp, Turbo III engine. This rocket of a car claimed to pack the most horsepower per cubic inch of engine than any Chrysler ever in the annals of car history. Less than 300 were manufactured, however, so this is an extremely rare find.

In 1992, the plain old IROC came standard with the 3.0, 141-hp V6 (not too shabby itself) with an optional 2.5, 152-hp High Torque turbo engine. Base models came equipped with the regular 2.5-liter, 100-horsepower. All models came standard with a 5-speed manual transmission, with optional 3 or 4-speed automatic (the IROC R/T was only available with manual transmission).

The 1992 Dodge Daytona had some body updates, including a new grille and front and rear fascias. Its pop-up headlights were replaced by exposed wraparounds, while the taillights extended the full width of the car.

Along with its incredible power and tuning capabilities, the interior of the 1992 Daytona is roomy and well laid out, except for the back seat, which is virtually non-existent. Great suspension and steering provide a smooth ride in the Daytona, even at high speeds. Electrical problems are mentioned by owners, as is the lack of parts due to the Daytona's demise after 1993 in response to falling sales.
