The debut of the 2018 Dodge Demon is just around the corner, and we already know quite a lot about the drag-strip dominating muscle car. Dodge dropped some more info in one of the final teaser videos for the Challenger Hellcat-based Demon today, revealing it will be capable of running on 100+ octane racing fuel.
From the factory, the Demon’s engine will be programmed to run on premium unleaded pump gasoline. However in the Demon’s special parts crate is the Demon ‘Track Pack’ system, which includes a new powertrain control module (PCM) calibrated for high-octane fuel and a new switch bank for the center stack that includes a high octane button. With the Track Pack PCM installed, the Demon will make “maximum power from the knock-resistant high-octane fuel by optimizing spark timing,” Dodge says.
Dodge has also revealed the Demon’s supercharged HEMI V8 will feature dual fuel pumps (as opposed to the single pump in the Hellcat) along with and larger fuel injectors with more rail pressure. Due to the fact that Dodge has released all of its teaser videos for the Demon at 7:57 a.m., we’re convinced it will produce 757 horsepower, but it seems there will be more on tap if the Track Pack PCM is installed and 100+ octane race gas is used.
Check out the teaser video embedded above. Dodge will also drop another teaser tomorrow entitled ‘Judgement Day’ before the Demon debuts next Tuesday night in NYC, so be sure to check back tomorrow for additional Demon intel.
