The 2018 Challenger SRT Demon promises to be one of the most impressive high-performance models on the market. There are a number of upgrades and improvements that have been made to the special Demon edition, making it an ideal vehicle for those who simply can’t get enough power. Here’s some detailed information about the upcoming Demon.
According to Fiat-Chrysler, the powertrain will include a supercharged 6.2-liter V8 engine with a deep-skirt cast iron block and aluminum alloy heads. This can generate up to 840 horsepower when properly equipped. The engine is paired with a TorqueFlite 8HP90 eight-speed automatic transmission that’s been specially upgraded with an automatic torque converter and a selectable Drag Mode. There’s also a limited-slip differential to improve performance as well.
There are also a number of fun facts about the new Demon. During a quarter-mile run, the Demon’s V8 engine ingests 173 cubic ft of air—more than the lung capacity of 816 humans. The cooling system rejects 238 kW of heat at rated power, which means it could boil 1 quart of water at room temperature in 1.2 seconds. Finally, a whopping 2,500 pounds is transferred from front to rear wheels during launch.
The Demon will be one of the most exciting models in automotive history. To learn more about this special Dodge Challenger, stop by Coronet Chrysler Dodge Jeep Ram Fiat today.
