The 1969 Charger received minor changes to distinguish itself from the previous year with a new split front grille and new full-width tail-lamps.

A six-cylinder was introduced as the base engine and was under-powered for the mass of the Charger. The Charger 500 and the Charger Daytona were introduced for stock car races. An SE package was also introduced and offered a little more luxury.

The R/T package returned and little was changed.

The 500 and Daytona had improved aerodynamics, which were primarily a flush grille and backlight on the 500, but were radical on the Daytona, which had a Cd (coefficient of drag) of 0.29, a number not bettered on production cars for many decades. Both cars had the 440 Magnum as standard equipment, with the 2X4-BBl 426 Hemi as the only engine option. The Daytona set a world closed-course record of 200.45 MPH at Talladega, Alabama in March, 1970, in a car that had been stolen on the streets of Los Angeles and recovered by the LAPD.
