For people excited to see, drive and own the new 2018 Dodge Challenger SRT Demon, the wait is almost over. The 840-horsepower mega muscle car is currently on way to dealers all across the country. Any day now people will be able to get behind the wheel of Dodge’s new SRT models. On Friday, Fiat Chrysler Automobiles announced that they had started shipping the first of the 2018 Dodge Challenger SRT Demons and they should begin appearing in dealership showrooms just in time for the holidays. So if you have been nice and not naughty, you may soon have the perfect present for which to be thankful.

The 2018 Dodge Challenger SRT Demon with its limited-production, 6.2-liter Hemi V8 engine produces an amazing 840 horsepower. The company is promoting its new mega-muscle car as the first production drag car in the industry to be street-legal. According to the National Hot Rod Association, the 2018 Dodge Challenger SRT Demon has been certified as the fastest quarter-mile production vehicle in the world.
During the tests that were conducted, the Demon covered the quarter-mile track in an amazing 9.65 seconds while traveling at about 140 miles per hour. The vehicle can go from zero to 60 in a breathtaking 2.3 seconds. While going on a test drive, you can’t race it around like a hot rod, but if you head to Chapman Las Vegas Dodge, you can check one out for yourself.

The people that have plunked down the $84,995 plus a $1,095 destination charge for a chance to own a 2018 Dodge Challenger SRT Demon tend to be hardcore performance enthusiasts. To them, driving a custom car that comes with a whole host of accessories that are designed to improve its overall performance is critical. So says Tim Kuniskis, the head of Fiat Chrysler North America’s passenger cars and the person responsible for the Dodge, Chrysler, SRT and Fiat brands. The automaker has revealed that it only plans to produce 3,300 of the Demons at its plant located in Brampton, Ontario. Three hundred of that total will be held for buyers in Canada.

Dodge also offers buyers a wide range of accessories that are aimed at helping to maximize the dragster’s thrill. One of those is a personalized crate that contains a wide array of add-on equipment. That equipment includes direct connection performance parts and a performance powertrain control module that has a high-octane engine calibration. There’s also a replacement switch module fitted with a high-octane bottom. Then there’s the conical performance air filter, along with narrow front-runner drag wheels. Plus, there is a hydraulic floor jack that comes with a carrying bag. There is also a torque wrench, a tire pressure gauge and a tool bag.

For owners that want their drag strip tires to remain fresh for when they take it to the track, there is the option to place an order for a special package of Mopar Demon street tires. The package includes four high performance Pirelli 305/35ZR20 tires along with 20×11-inch lightweight forged Devil’s Rim wheels. Add these to your 2018 Dodge Challenger SRT Demon and you are sure to turn heads no matter where you go.

2018 Dodge Durango SRT

 

The 2018 Dodge Durango SRT is nimble, quick, powerful and versatile. The V8, 6.4-liter HEMI engine on this new muscle car-inspired vehicle helps make it a cut above other midsized SUVs. Yes, it has 3 rows and seats 6 comfortably and has all the safety technology everyone needs, but this beast has the soul of a performance automobile. It delivers 475 horsepower along with 470 pound-feet of torque and goes from zero-60 in about 4.4 seconds. Running errands will be more fun and exhilarating than ever. It’s leather and suede trim come standard on this monster and so does its growl and the Street & Racing Technology.

This vehicle looks, sounds and feels fast. But its amazing suspension makes the ride smooth. Plus, the vehicle wraps occupants in 5,510 pounds of comfort, safety and convenience features. Add its light, precise steering and car-like spry handling, upgraded upholstery and carbon-fiber and you know you’re in a high performance midsized SUV that handles itself rather professionally and is fun to drive. To see the performance of the SUV for yourself, you can take one for a spin at Chapman Las Vegas Dodge.

With the 2018 Dodge Durango SRT, all-wheel-drive comes standard and you can choose from 7 drive modes—Auto, Eco, Valet, Snow, Sport, Tow and Track. These allow you to increase shift speed, direct up to 70% of the torque to the rear wheels and allow for maximum yaw. Plus, the new front fascia has a brawny disposition and aggressive looks, a wide-body stance, a functional hood scoop, sporty dual exhaust tips, as well as an unmistakable SRT badge. This is a powerful beast wrapped in sheep’s clothing that fits in anywhere, but can bare its claws when the need arises.

The interior of the new Durango has a superb, quiet cabin with a flat-bottomed, steering wheel wrapped in Dinamica suede and features SRT paddle shifters. Its seats are covered in a combination of Nappa leather-and-suede with the front ones heated and ventilated while providing the second row with a heater selection. The 2018 Dodge Durango has its first instrument panel made of true carbon fiber. The A-pillars and headliner are covered in suede, adding to the cabin’s soundproofing. And “SRT” is emblazoned on the steering wheel, seats and floor mats.

The new Durango SRT comes with 20-inch wheels, Pirelli Scorpion Verde all-season tires, vented rotors, Brembo six-piston calipers in the front and four-piston calipers in the rear, an 8-speed automatic transmission, an active damping system for improved cornering, best-in-class towing power and launch control. Choose the technology package and you get the Blu-ray rear entertainment system, low-gloss black wheels, Pirelli P Zero tries and additional driver-assistance systems like blind spot monitoring, forward collision warning, adaptive cruise control and lane keep assist.

The 2018 Dodge Durango SRT starting price of $64,090 is much less than its competition like the BMW X5 S and Land Rover Range Rover Sport, but the new Durango has more interior room. Competitors are on the drawing board designing SUVs that match this Durango SRTs rear head and legroom, comfortable theatre-style rear seating, power, performance, versatility and value.
