2018 Dodge Challenger SRT Demon: What We Know


While the official debut of the 2018 Dodge Challenger SRT Demon is still about a month away, news has been slowly trickling out of Detroit for a while now. We don’t know everything that Dodge engineers have developed for its higher performance version of the Challenger Hellcat, but we do have a tidbits of information for what’s in store for the SRT Demon.

  • The Challenger SRT Demon will be equipped with a ‘trans brake’, a device that allows for cars equipped with automatic transmissions to still launch off the starting line.
  • Optimized Launch Mode is included to ensure that the Challenger SRT Demon is at the desired RPM and the supercharger is built up to maximum boost.
  • Real-time horsepower and torque output will be included with the infotainment system.
  • The first production car to have a ‘Run Chiller’ that allows the coolant fan and intercooler pump to continue running after the engine is shut down.
  • Four drive modes are rumored, including custom, auto, drag, and race gas mode.
  • A stronger driveshaft capable of handling 15% more torque than the Challenger Hellcat has been added to the SRT Demon.
  • The first production car to be fitted with drag radial tires with 12.6-in. of tread width on 18-in. by 11-in. wheels.
  • More than 200 lbs. lighter than a regular Challenger Hellcat.
