2018 Dodge Challenger SRT Demon
We’re constantly being asked. “Have you driven the Dodge Demon yet?” We can now say yes! And while it was a very Quick Spin in the 2018 Dodge Challenger SRT Demon; believe us, it’s everything you’ve heard about and more.
But to recap, FCA has cranked up the Hellcat’s supercharged 6.2-liter HEMI to 840-horsepower; by forcing in more air, and beefing up internals to handle it.
Likewise, transmission, drive-shaft, and rear end all are updated to make sure that all of the that power gets to the pavement in a reliable fashion.
Make no mistake, this is a purpose-built V8 drag car to do one thing; get you to the end of the ¼-mile in well under 10.0-seconds.
And we can attest it will do it all day long.
BRIAN ROBINSON: “So, I’ve finally been able to unleash some evil from a Dodge Demon on a racetrack. And it was as awesome as I’d hoped it would be. But, at the same time; it’s not crazy or insane experience. Just because the car is set up for drag racing, and it launches so hard, and just carries that power all the way down the track without any drama at all.”
Only 3,300 will be made, 3,000 of which are for us in the U.S.A. Hopefully you’ll be able to get one somewhere close to its $85,000 base price, but that’s not very likely.
Now, if you need to haul more people or cargo in a hurry, SRT has you covered there too, with the first ever Dodge Durango SRT sport-utility.
Packing 475-horsepower from its 392 HEMI V8, it will get you through the ¼ in 12.9-seconds or tow 8,700-lbs.
It’s also on sale now, starting at around $63,000.
