February 16, 2017 , Auburn Hills, Mich. - The 2018 Dodge Challenger SRT Demon claws the road.

In video No. 3, Dodge revealed that the Challenger SRT Demon will be factory equipped with 18x11-inch lightweight wheels and 315/40R 18 Nitto NT05R street-legal drag radials. These new drag radials measure 12.6 inches wide and were designed and developed specifically for the Dodge Challenger SRT Demon using a new compound and unique tire construction.

The added traction and higher profile of these new tires allow the Challenger SRT Demon to handle higher launch torque loads. So, since it can now handle more, Dodge decided to give it more … more torque multiplication.

The Dodge Challenger SRT Demon has been upgraded with a higher stall speed torque converter and 3.09 rear axle gears.

Result compared with a Challenger Hellcat:
  • Approximately 15 percent larger tire contact patch 
  • More than twice as much grip 
  • Approximately 18 percent increase in converter torque multiplication
  • Approximately 18 percent increase in rear axle torque multiplication
 
These upgrades alone enable the Challenger SRT Demon to generate more than 35 percent higher launch force than a Challenger Hellcat, and there are seven weeks to go.

About Dodge//SRT
Dodge//SRT offers a complete lineup of performance vehicles that stand out in their own segments. Dodge is America’s performance brand and SRT is positioned as the ultimate performance halo of the Dodge brand, together creating a complete and balanced performance brand with one vision and one voice.
 
For more than 100 years, the Dodge brand has carried on the spirit of brothers John and Horace Dodge, who founded the brand in 1914. Their influence continues today. For 2020, Dodge literally expands its high-performance Charger model lineup, adding a Widebody exterior to America’s only four-door muscle car. Powered by the 707-horsepower supercharged 6.2-liter HEMI® Hellcat V-8 engine, the 2020 Dodge Charger SRT Hellcat maintains its reign as the most powerful and fastest mass-produced sedan in the world.
 
The 2019 Dodge Challenger SRT Hellcat Redeye is possessed by the Demon. Its 797-horsepower supercharged HEMI® high-output engine makes it the most powerful, quickest and fastest muscle car, reaching 0-60 miles per hour (mph) in 3.4 seconds, and the fastest GT production car with a ¼-mile elapsed time (ET) of 10.8 seconds at 131 mph. It also reaches a new top speed of 203 mph.

Joining the Challenger SRT Hellcat Redeye is the 2019 Dodge Challenger SRT Hellcat, with its more powerful 717-horsepower engine, and the Challenger R/T Scat Pack Widebody, featuring fender flares from the SRT Hellcat Widebody, which add 3.5 inches of width to the 485-horsepower Scat Pack’s standard body. Also new for 2019 is the Challenger R/T Scat Pak 1320 with exclusive drag strip technology from the iconic Dodge Challenger SRT Demon. The Challenger R/T Scat Pack 1320 is a drag-oriented, street-legal muscle car and a blank canvas for the serious grassroots drag racer. The 2019 Dodge Durango SRT, America’s fastest, most powerful and most capable three-row SUV with a best-in-class tow rating of 8,700 lbs., completes the brand's performance lineup. These visceral performance models join a 2019 brand lineup that includes the Durango, Grand Caravan, Journey, Charger and Challenger — a showroom that offers performance at every price point.
