2018 Dodge Challenger SRT Demon

2018 Dodge Challenger SRT Demon

I have been watching developments of the 2018 Dodge Challenger SRT Demon but haven’t wanted to bore you with them constantly. However, this new release has gotten me quite excited. Dodge have announced Performance Pages, a PlayStation style dashboard in the centre stack that gives you all sorts of performance data and some pretty graphs.

This system is similar to that of the Nissan GT-R which was the first road car to offer this kind of performance data. It gives you horsepower, torque, boost pressure, air-fuel ratio, g-force, reaction time and the 0-60 time. There are presumably other pages with lots more data besides.

Performance Pages will also feature programmable features such as launch control, shift timing, line lock and other tricks. Although to be honest, when you have as much power as the Demon will have on tap I doubt there will be much time to be staring down at the centre screen. Nevertheless, if you have passengers brave enough for the ride they will at least be able to watch the screen rather than the road.

Here is the obligatory video of Performance Pages in action.

While performance figures are show towards the end, I suspect they aren’t real ones. It would give too much away. I’m sure someone who is very good at math could compute horsepower from the eighth and quarter mile times and I imagine Dodge would be very aware of that. Given how much effort they are dedicating to keeping everything secret, I don’t imagine they overlooked that for a second.

Demons are coming
This is the ninth video in the series that lead up to the reveal at the New York Auto Show on April 11. They are all available on the teaser website www.ifyouknowyouknow.com if you have the time or patience they all give a tantalizing glimmer into the world of the Demon without enough substance to give too much away. That’s okay though as the unveiling of the car is less than a month off.

If the 2018 Dodge Challenger SRT Demon seems a little much for your daily commute but you like muscle cars, the standard SRT or one of the many special editions would be ideally suited to keeping a grin on your face while keeping your license safely in your wallet.
