2018 Dodge Challenger SRT Demon Will Be Even More Powerful than Hellcat. Dodge Challenger Hellcat is already so iconic with its 707 HP and less than $70,000 price tag. When we think that a Dodge Challenger can’t be more aggressive than that, Fiat Chrysler drops the bomb and presents us the brand new, beastly Hellcat on steroids, 2018 Dodge Challenger SRT Demon.
2018 Dodge Challenger SRT Demon Specifications
The company has officially confirmed that the Demon will make its first debut at 2017 New York Auto Show on upcoming April. To build the hype for the new model, Fiat Chrysler will release a series of teaser sketches, images as well as animated videos, one of them showing a Hellcat interestingly transformed into a Demon. All of them will be published weekly starting from now until the debut date on a dedicated website, www.ifyouknowyouknow.com.
Dodge SRT Demon?
So everybody says that Demon is going to be more powerful than Hellcat and all that jazz. But the big question here is, what is the Demon exactly? We all curious about how it will look like, how big the power figure will be and whether it will be street legal or a track focused car. Unfortunately, the company has not spilled any details yet. So, we can do nothing but wait until the debut, or if Fiat Chrysler is generous enough, we can see some precious hints from the teaser.
But putting all the uncertainties aside, some speculations suggest that the wide-body Hellcat, which was spotted testing back in October and is believed to be called ADR (American Drag Racer), is the one that will become the highly anticipated SRT Demon.
Of course, we can’t know yet whether it will be true or not. One thing for sure, SRT Demon will involve lots of serious engineering work and it will not just be a new version of Hellcat with only new paint job and some body kit.

Speaking of Hellcat, its 6.2 L Hemi Hellcat engine churns out 707 HP and 650-pound feet of torque and paired to either a 6-speed manual or 8-speed automatic transmission. Initially, the engineers planned to give Hellcat only 600 HP. But, the figure kept increasing to 675, 700 until finally, they served us with sensational 707 HP.
At this point, we have established knowledge that Dodge Challenger is full of surprise so let’s expect a jaw-dropping power output beyond Hellcat’s ponies, making it the fastest muscle car in the world.
“The Dodge Challenger SRT Demon is conceived, designed and engineered for a subculture of enthusiasts who know that a tenth is a car and a half second is your reputation,” said Tim Kuniskis, chief of Dodge, emphasizing what he has in store and what we can expect from the new halo car.
Demon name itself is taken from a 2-door fastback from 1971 that we later know as Dodge Dart. Its 275 HP courtesy of a 340 cubic-inch V8 set it as the best muscle car the brand ever made. Demon name once again appeared in the form of a roadster concept back in 2007, but it never sees the light of day until now. How the next Demon will look like and how aggressive its performance will be, let’s patiently wait until April.
