Dodge Demon Challenger Fever Continues
It’s time for our regular 2018 Dodge Challenger SRT Demon news fix to build on all the others. We know that those of you waiting in Mississauga and Brampton for the release of this groundbreaking car are just as stoked as we are. The latest tasty tidbit from the carmaker mentions a straight-from-the-factory trans brake feature. That’s the key ingredient in giving an automatic transmission car an absolutely blazing launch from the starter line. Add that to the positively delicious roar of the car’s launch mode and yes, we’re sweating with you in anticipation of seeing this Demon in action. Production vehicles don’t usually offer this type of torque reserve feature. While you wait, you can download this ringtone and drive yourself a little bit crazy as the days clock toward the big Demon reveal at the New York Auto Show.
Here’s our point-form grocery list so far of what’s making us so hungry for a taste of the Demon:
It’s gonna’ be a widebody, but one that’s some 200 pounds lighter than the notorious Hellcat; it features superwide street legal drag radial tires with 15% larger tire contact patch. Drag-ready torque offers a 35% higher launch force than the Hellcat, and a ram-air hood scoop and “Air Catcher” headlamps will give it a retro drag race feel. There’s the just-mentioned trans brake and Race Gas features and something about a box of drag-friendly goodies to shall we say “enhance” driver enjoyment of the car should he or she find use for the Drag Mode feature...Is it April yet?? Do what we do to cope with the suspense here at Team Chrysler and just keep studying the Demon updates and watching the teaser videos.
