The 2018 Dodge Challenger SRT Demon will get a unique blend of the company’s performance pages on its 8.4-inch Uconnect touchscreen. Those pages normally control power output, suspension, steering and drive modes, and display horsepower and torque. In the Demon, however, they’ll also track gear changes and performance gains from new parts. It’ll also track supercharger intercooler coolant temps.
The Demon will be the first-ever, according to Dodge, factory production car to get an after-run chiller, which apparently keeps the fan running and coolant circulating after the engine has powered down to bring the equipment back to a safe temperature, though we’re still confirming the system’s full capabilities
Like the Hellcat, the Demon features driver-selectable line lock with rpm-adjustable launch, plus it’ll record reaction times, 0-60 mph, 0-100 mph, eighth- and quarter-mile numbers.
The Demon will have its own set of drive modes for street, drag and custom, with multiple levels of performance and suspension give.
We’ll get a real look at the Demon in April at the New York auto show.
