New 2018 Dodge Challenger SRT Demon

Before now, the Dodge brand's Challenger SRT Hellcat and Charger SRT Hellcat models were the fastest performance muscle cars ever. But now, Dodge is gearing up to release their revolutionary new 2018 Dodge Challenger SRT Demon. Making its official debut at the New York International Auto Show, the Challenger SRT Demon dominated the dragstrip with its highly capable performance. Learn more about the awe-inspiring new 2018 Dodge Challenger Demon SRT!

The incredible performance of the Challenger SRT Demon was made possible through a collaboration with the Dodge/SRT, Engineering, Design, Manufacturing, and Powertrain teams at FCA US LLC. These teams are comprised of some of the best minds in the automotive world, many of whom have extensive first-hand drag-racing experience. Dodge will produce just 3,000 Challenger SRT Demon models for the United States market, and these models will begin heading to dealers later the 2017 year. This vehicle will be the title holder of many "firsts" for the factory-production class, making it truly unprecedented. For example, it will be the first-ever factor-production car to:

  • Be designed to run on either 100+ high-octane unleaded fuel or 91 octane on demand;
  • Come standard with front passenger seat delete;
  • Feature Torque Reserve which works to deliver enhanced levels of torque and power at launch;
  • Have a TransBrake for quicker and more powerful launches.

At the heart of the Challenger SRT Demon is a supercharged 6.2-liter HEMI Demon V-8 engine. This engine will deliver 840 horsepower and 770 lb-ft of torque. It is the world's most powerful factory-produced V8 ever, and the red-painted Demon engine will distinguish itself from the SRT Hellcat engine with over 25 upgrades, with a highlight being a larger induction air box that has and an inlet near the wheel liner, a driver-side Air-Catcher headlamp, and an Air-Grabber hood. The supercharged 6.2-liter HEMI Demon V-8 will provide:

  • Increased boost pressure of 14.5 psi;
  • Larger supercharger coming in at 2.7 liters;
  • Higher rev per minute (RPM) limit of 6,500 rpm;
  • And two dual-stage fuel pumps instead of one.

The Challenger SRT Demon has been tested by the esteemed National Hot Rod Association (NHRA). In fact, the SRT Demon has an NHRA-certified 9.65 seconds @ 140 mph quarter-mile time. The SRT Demon will be the first production car that can lift the front wheels at launch. This has led to a Guinness World Record for the longest wheelie from a standing start for a production car, measuring at 2.92 feet! Additionally, the Challenger SRT Demon has a registered g-force of 1.8 g, which is the highest ever recorded in a production car. Here are some of the other phenomenal numbers that the Dodge Challenger SRT Demon has produced!

  • 0-30 mph in 1.0 second;
  • 0-60 mph in 2.3 seconds;
  • Quarter-mile: 9.65 seconds at 140 mph.
