In the latest Dodge Demon teaser video, entitled ‘Performance Pages’, the Challenger Hellcat-based muscle car’s horsepower and acceleration figures, along with its quarter-mile time, seemed to have been made public.
According to the performance pages shown in the video, the Demon’s 6.2-liter Hellcat HEMI V8 produces around 750 horsepower and around 710 lb-ft of torque. A separate performance page, displaying the results of a recent 1/4-mile test, reveals a 0-60 mph time of 3.0-seconds flat, a 0-100 time of 6.8s and a quarter-mile time of 10.5 seconds at 129 mph. The same page also reveals the vehicle will take around 220 feet to stop from 128 mph.
Dodge also revealed the Demon will feature adjustable ‘Street’ and ‘Drag’ modes. The ‘Street’ mode will offer multiple levels of engine performance, three suspension settings and three steering settings. ‘Drag’ mode allows for further customization with multiple levels of engine performance, adjustable transmission shifting speed and firmness, one level of traction control, one level of suspension feel and response and one steering setting. A ‘Custom’ setting will allow the user to freely apply the settings from both Street and Drag modes. For example, ‘Custom mode will allow for ‘Drag’ power settings for maximum output to be combined with street suspension and steering settings if they are not at the track.
Also included in the Dodge Demon’s performance pages is a driver-selectable line-lock feature for burnouts, RPM adjustable launch control with a gear-shift light in the gauge cluster, a lateral and longitudal g-meter and gauge readouts for engine oil pressure and temperature, coolant temperature, transmission fluid temperature, intake air temperature, air-fuel ratio, intercooler coolant temperature, boost pressure and battery voltage. The vehicle will also feature an ‘After-Run Chiller’ that will keep the cooling fan and intercooler pump running after the engine is turned off to help keep it cool and avoid damage.
The 2018 Dodge Demon will break cover in early April at the 2017 New York International Auto Show.
