Car and Driver Breaks the News on the 2018 Dodge Challenger SRT Demon, to Deliver to Aficionados This Fall

We at Brandon Dodge On Broadway can't wait to get behind the wheel of one of these 3,000 limited-edition hellions. The arrival of the infernal crown atop Dodge's Challenger line looks to unveil the king of supercharged engines -- a 6.2-liter HEMI® V8, the most powerful currently produced – capable of shelling out 840 horsepower, certified to the SAE J1349 industry standard, and showcasing upgrades to 25 major components.

A sizable supercharger, high boost pressure, and sky's-the-limit 6,500-rpm capability will come together in SRT Demon with an airflow rate of up to 1,150 cubic feet per minute, making the Dodge two-door coupe a performance speedster on the road. In fact, Demon's SRT Power Chiller and After-Run Cooler will allow the car's engine to lower the temperature of air taken in by up to 45 degrees Fahrenheit, making SRT Demon a model practically calling for drag strip runs and mettle-testing races.

What's more, the ability to rein in the beast is all but assured thanks to 15/40R18 Nitto NT05R™ drag radial tires, ratcheting up SRT Demon's launch force by up to 40 percent with almost twice the coefficient traction of run-of-the-mill street tires. Perhaps the most attention-commanding, a Drag Mode Launch Assist feature offers to make extra catch and push in slippery conditions a matter of course, reducing engine torque by discretion to help ensure the kind of razor-sharp handling that only top-off by new, lightweight, four-piston Brembo brakes with slotted two-piece rotors can deliver.

Needless to say, we can think of a few Dodge aficionados here at our Littleton, CO Dodge dealer that'd love to get their hands on one of these babies. How 2018 Dodge Challenger SRT Demon compares to, say, the highly capable SXT base, step-ups like Challenger GT, R/T 392, and R/T Scat Pack, or apices like SRT 392 and the 707-crushing-horsepower SRT Hellcat remains to be seen. You'll just have to spoil the preferences of your inner racing enthusiast with a thrilling test drive. Stop by and see us from here in Littleton or from Aurora or Centennial today, and we'll be glad to set you up!
