For a sense of true American muscle in a car, there’s only one real option: the 2018 Dodge Challenger. Now, here at Woody Folsom Chrysler Dodge Jeep® RAM, we try not to play favorites. So we would be remiss if we didn’t say that the 2018 Dodge Charger is a perfect choice for someone who wants muscle and also needs a practical everyday sedan.
Now, with that out of the way, back to the 2018 Dodge Challenger. When we first saw the introduction of the Dodge Challenger Hellcat, we were very impressed by the amount of horsepower that sat under that long, muscular hood. And like you, a lot of us thought that would be the pinnacle of what the Dodge Challenger would be. We were wrong. What’s bigger and badder than a hellcat? A demon.
The automaker is building an even more powerful model, aptly named the Dodge Challenger Demon. The Dodge Challenger Demon ups the ante with the promise of a supercharged 6.2-liter HEMI® V8 engine that puts out 840 horsepower and 770 lb-ft of torque. It’s basically something out of a Fast and the Furious movie. And for good reason, as it’s being presented as a car that can win any drag race.
The science behind the car’s ability to generate such numbers can be a bit confusing, but it boils down to a new 2.7-liter supercharger that helps the boost. A system that involves re-routing the cabin’s air conditioning refrigerant, which helps to cool the air going into the supercharger, is also of assistance.
As far as getting all those horses going at once, you’ll need some expert driving skills and high octane fuel. Rest assured though, as you can still expect to get around 808 horsepower and 717 lb-ft of torque with regular super unleaded.
The Dodge Challenger Demon is proof that true American muscle not only still exists, but it’s thriving. To ensure that your existing Dodge vehicle is ready for the races, head on down to 1859 Golden Isles West today for all your Dodge service needs.
