Dodge has launched yet another teaser video ahead of the 2018 SRT Demon’s launch at the 2017 New York Auto Show. Like the other teaser videos before it, this one gives little detail but entices with exhaust noises, supercharger while, and tire smoke. What details are given are clearly gifts from Dodge’s marketing department. Today they’re milking this debut is a drastic understatement. Nevertheless, there are a few cleverly-planted hints, including the horsepower rating.
Watching the video above, you’ll see the Challenger’s 8.4-inch Uconnect infotainment screen and its SRT Performance Pages. Like the current SRT-branded Dodge vehicles, these pages include auxiliary gauges, G-meter, and powertrain setup options that include suspension, transmission, and engine tuning. However, the Demon’s Performance Pages are clearly different.
Not only are they updated, but also contain a new data recorder feature. Look closely enough and you’ll spot some other nuggets of information. Check out the clock – 757. Seems awful conspicuous, especially when the new Dyno chart page shows a peak horsepower of roughly 757. The torque curve is just beneath, perhaps around 750 pound-feet. While that’s below the rumored 800 horsepower, the dyno chart doesn’t even show 800 horsepower on the graph. Interesting. (Or Dodge is playing us.)
For the rest of Dodge’s tease, keep reading.
