Five Things We Absolutely Love About the Dodge Challenger

February 14th, 2018 by

This month is all about love and we thought we would want to share a little love to some of our favorite things about America’s best muscle car, the Dodge Challenger.

Rich History

The Dodge Challenger’s history dates back as far as the 1950’s with the limited edition Dodge Silver Challenger, produced out of Detroit, Michigan. The first original Challenger came with extra features at no extra cost including white wall tires, full wheel covers and electric windshield wipers. In 1969, the first original generation Challenger was born and with its beginnings came a rich history of a record-breaking American-made muscle car.

16 Trims

There’s not many cars that have a lineup as specialized or unique as the Dodge Challenger. For the 2018 model year the Dodge Challenger is available in 16 unique trims, but then again not many brands are as refined and focused on performance as Dodge. The variety of trims make it easy for consumers to find a Challenger model that meets their needs and their budget.  With a starting MSRP of $26,995, the base trim, the  2018 Challenger SXT offers great fuel economy with 19 mpg in city and 30 mpg on the highway and a powerful base engine that produces 305 horsepower.

High Performance Machine

Each 2018 Dodge Challenger comes packed with nearly double the horsepower in comparison to most standard sedans and coupes on the road. The various engines provide he Dodge Challenger with 305 to 840 horsepower, and with that comes incredible track times. The Dodge Challenger SRT accelerates from 0-60 mph in the low four-second range, the Dodge Challenger SRT Hellcat goes from 0-60 in 3.6 seconds and the all-new 2018 Dodge Challenger SRT Demon goes from 0-30 mph in one second and from 0-60 mph in 2.3 seconds!

All-New 2018 Dodge Challenger SRT Demon

The 2018 Dodge Challenger SRT Demon is a marvel to look at and a marvel in terms of innovation. The Challenger SRT Demon holds the title of a number of factory production firsts including the first ever factory production car designed to run on 100+ high-octane unleaded fuel or 91 octane on demand, the TransBrake for more powerful launches and its Torque Reserve, which delivers increased levels of power at launch.

Just imagine being one of the 3,000 owners of this wicked, wild and spectacularly fast vehicle. The Demon has break neck speed and high-octane performance capable of being so quick, the Dodge Challenger SRT Demon was banned as a drag racing vehicle by the NHRA (National Hot Rod Association). Even if you’re not on a drag strip, this vehicle is not sold without the owner signing a waiver to allow for the owner to fully purchase this menacing demon of a vehicle.

With all the upgrades on par with the best features offered for the Challenger, this SRT vehicle has a uniquely bold red tailor made experience from start to finish, inside and out. Drivers of this will fall in love instantly with an ultra powerful supercharged 6.2-liter HEMI Demon V8 capable of producing up to 840 horsepower. Purring more like an angel than demon, the Challenger SRT Demon has a beautiful cabin complete with signature Demon logo placed throughout the vehicle, entire leather interior and a performance steering wheel. The Challenger SRT Demon also features the unique SRT Power Chiller, which keeps the engine cool even after racing at high speeds and after the engine is shut off.

Learning how to handle the 2018 Dodge Challenger SRT Demon is something that might cross an owners mind.
