2018 Dodge Challenger Preview

2018 Dodge Challenger Preview 

The Dodge Challenger is all set to receive some major upgrades in 2018. Buyers will likely have to wait until 2019 to get their hands on a completely new model, but in 2018, we'll be seeing an all-new variant in the form of the SRT Demon.

The Demon will be a much-improved version of the SRT Hellcat, which is already an absolute beast. The Demon will feature a stronger stance and will be equipped with a much lighter frame to achieve some amazing results on and off the track.

The Demon is expected to carry a 6.2L V8 engine that can generate an eye-watering 840 HP and 770 lb-ft of torque. It will be an incredible vehicle that will affirm the reign of the Dodge Challenger. The power and the premium features of the Demon are guaranteed to set it far apart from the competition.

The rest of the Challenger lineup in 2018 is expected to be more or less the same, besides a few tweaks and upgrades.

Speed Demon

The Demon will carry a 6.2L Hemi V8 supercharged engine under the hood. The Demon has the capability to clock 840 HP of torque and 770 lb-ft of torque when paired with unleaded 100 octane fuel and a Direct Connection Controller. The engine is paired with an 8-speed automatic transmission that has an upgraded auto torque converter. The Demon will have a revamped suspension system, lightweight alloy tubes and 40% extra kick to its launch acceleration.

The supercharger has twin screws with longer rotors so delivers better acceleration than the HellCat supercharger. The Demon is designed to tear up the road with its mind-boggling power and unique capabilities. The competition already pales in comparison when it comes to the performance and power of the Dodge Challenger. The all-new Demon SRT is set to raise this mark of quality and performance even further.

This righteous car can go from 0 to 60 in just 2 seconds. The Demon will be all about power and performance. It will only have a single seat and a large hood scoop by default. This speedster will certainly fulfill your desire for speed.

Drag Radials, Transbrake, and Speed

It has never before been done in the past that a production level car is equipped with drag radials. The Demon is expected to get NTO5R drag radials right out of the factory. Drag radials ensure that you get the slickest ride that's still street legal.

The Demon is all about setting new standards. In addition to drag radials, the Demon is also equipped with a transbreak. The transbreak is a feature of racing cars that lets drivers build hydraulic pressure before the launch. This amazing feature lets the Demon fly right out of the gate. It's a dream come true for sports car lovers who were seeking thrills and speed in their vehicles.

If you wish to get into the true spirit of drag racing then you can also equip a 4-point harness that does not offer any significant performance improvement but does look cool and increases safety.

The suspension on the Demon has been specially revamped to deal with the extra power and torque. The perfect fuel utilization ratio lets the car unleash its true potential. A drag mode takes the full advantage of all these upgrades to deliver exceptional performance.

The Demon can hit 30 MPH in just a second. The Challenger is a true representation of a speedster sports vehicle that is constantly improving. Dodge has continued this legacy in the 2018 Demon.


The $85,000 price tag of the Dodge Demon is worth every dollar. Enthusiasts have never been able to get their hands on this kind of performance and power at this low of a price tag. The Dodge Demon lets buyers experience a true sports car at a highly affordable price. If you wish to transform your Demon into a complete dragster then the Demon Crate Package is there for the taking.

The standard model of the Demon carries only a single seat but buyers can add more seats for just $1 each. Other features like carpet and the Demon Crate Package can also be added to your Demon for only $1.

A Harmon Kardon Stereo, quality upholstery, and a ton of other unique features can also be equipped on the 2018 Dodge Challenger.

Other Challengers

Other Dodge Challengers will stay pretty much the same with only a few tweaks. The base engines shipped on the rest of the Challengers include a 3.6L V6 engine that can generate 268 lb-ft of torque. Buyers can also get a 5.7L V8 or a 6.4L V8 engine.

Dodge has not clearly announced the transmission but it is expected to stay the same 8-speed automatic transmission.


The Demon is expected to be the shining jewel of the Challenger rostrum. Its category-topping features, exceptional performance, and unique features make it one of a kind. The great price tag, speedy performance, and amazing list of features all combine to form an exceptional vehicle that you cannot say no to.

If you are looking for a speedster then there can be no better contender than the Demon considering its price and performance. The 2018 Dodge Challenger will be for sale in Kansas at State Line Chrysler Jeep Dodge Ram.
