PostHeaderIcon Six of America’s Baddest Muscle Machines

Cue the band, Mr. Copland; today is Independence Day! It’s the day American celebrates her declaration of independence from Britain amid the bloody Revolutionary War, which lasted from 1775 to 1783. Now some 234 years after the battle’s end, America can celebrate something else, too – the laundry list of high-horsepower vehicles that out-class nearly everything on the world’s roads. These cars, trucks, and SUVs represent the best-of-the-best, the most lust-worthy iron ever to transport humans.

These vehicles hail from American brand rich with history. We’ve included only late-model vehicles that represent the peak of their segment, and each will easily outgun nearly anything from outside our borders. Brands like Chevrolet, Ford, and Dodge are not only a cornerstone in the automotive industry, they are icons to the American way of life and our never-ending pursuit of happiness. So stand by for 4,295 horsepower of American Freedom!

PostHeaderIcon Dodge Challenger SRT Hellcat Wide-Body

The Dodge Challenger SRT Demon represents the pinnacle of muscle car madness. It’s the world’s most powerful factory-produced V-8 powered car with 840 horsepower and 707 pound-feet of torque. It’s faster to 60 mph than the Porsche 918 Spyder, Ferrari LaFerrari, and McLaren P1. It’s also limited to just 3,300 units in North America so getting your hands on one is going to be tough. Don’t be too bummed, though. Just because the Challenger Demon is a little out of your reach, that doesn’t mean you can’t get a Challenger that looks, well, a little bit like it. Dodge is here for you, gentlemen, with a new wide body kit for the Challenger SRT Hellcat that channels some of that demented Demon spirit into a muscle car that’s no stranger to ungodly power.

The new Demon-inspired body kit provides the kind of visual enhancement that helps bring out a little bit of the Hellcat’s demonic side. The wider fenders, in particular, are immediately noticeable, as is the larger-than-usual set of tires that can now be fitted into the Challenger Hellcat thanks to the extra space provided by the fenders. But the kit as a whole is more than just improving bits and pieces of the Hellcat’s own aesthetic look. Dodge even says that the kit is as much about creating room for the Hellcat to improve its own performance credentials as it is about giving it a more menacing visual appearance. Whatever it did, it’s clear that Dodge has something special in store for Challenger Hellcat owners with this new wide-body kit.

PostHeaderIcon Official: 2018 Dodge Challenger Hellcat Widebody

Hellcat Widebody-0

Yes, yes, you can go ahead and make the obvious jokes: this new 2018 Dodge Challenger Hellcat Widebody is for those who want a Challenger Demon but can’t afford it. And that’s true. Nobody who could get a Demon would settle for a Hellcat. But still, the widebody Hellcat is not completely void of merit. 

For one thing, you can now get your extra wide Challenger straight from the factory and not from aftermarket specialists. The 2018 Dodge Challenger Hellcat Widebody is 3.5 inches wider on all four corners than the regular version, a quality that gives the already massive car even more presence. The car also gets 20 x 11-inch “Devil’s Rim” split-five spoke aluminum wheels riding on 305/35ZR20 Pirelli P-Zero performance tires, filling up those huge fenders and answering customer feedback calling for more grip.

So while the 707 horsepower supercharged 6.2-liter HEMI V8 engine remains unchanged in the 2018 Dodge Challenger Hellcat Widebody, Dodge says it is considerably quicker on a road course thanks not only to more grippy tires but also electric power steering (EPS) system with SRT Drive Modes. What’s more, all customers who buy the new 2018 Dodge Challenger SRT Hellcat Widebody receive one full-day session at Bob Bondurant School of High-performance Driving.

Speaking of buying the widebody Hellcat, the MSRP starts at $71,495 (including gas guzzler tax, excluding destination $1,095).

PostHeaderIcon Make Sure You Abide By Dodge’s Rules Before You Buy A Challenger SRT Demon

Suppose you already have a reservation for the Dodge Challenger SRT Demon and you’re just waiting for that precious call from your local Dodge dealer. It’s hard not to get excited about getting your hands on one of the most anticipated muscle cars to be released in recent history. Exciting times, isn’t it? Well, before you get a little too excited about the possibilities, Dodge is dousing that excitement with a three-page Demon Disclosure Form that you’ll have to abide by before you can bring your Challenger Demons home.

The document, acquired by Jalopnik, is essentially a “terms and conditions” waiver that Dodge wants every Challenger Demon buyer to sign, effectively waiving their rights to sue in the event they don’t follow any of the conditions laid out by the automaker. Among the important points that Dodge indicated in the form pertains to passenger seats. Specifically, the form says that “if the vehicle is not factory equipped with a passenger seat, customer shall never attempt to install a passenger seat because the passenger will not be properly protected.” Another important reminder included in the form is a warning for owners never to use “any “Track-Use” features, functions, equipment or parts on public roads or any other prohibited area.”There are a lot more conditions laid out in the form, and almost all of which were put in to lay out the simple fact that the Challenger SRT is effectively a street-legal drag car and owners should use it with utmost care and caution.

PostHeaderIcon Dodge Helps Prevent Dealer Mark-Ups on Challenger SRT Demon

As Honda deals with the growing discontent among its consumer base on the aggressive mark-ups dealerships are putting on the Honda Civic Type R, Dodge is determined not to irate its consumers by instituting a unique dealership ordering process for the Dodge Challenger SRT Demon. The process itself was designed to prevent the experience prospective Civic Type R customers are going through as they see the prices of the hot hatch skyrocket to almost double Honda’s own asking price.

A big part of Dodge’s allocation plan for the Challenger Demon is to place priority on dealerships willing to sell at or below the automaker’s suggested retail price. Specifically, these dealerships stand to get priority scheduling and receive lower serial-numbered cars as opposed to those who are putting mark-ups on the price of the highly sought-after muscle car. On top of that, dealerships who have sold more than one SRT Hellcat in the last 12 months are the only ones who are eligible to receive a Challenger Demon. And to make it in even more difficult for these dealers, those who meet the previous requirement will be allocated a certain number of models depending on how their sales performance for the Charger, Challenger, and SRT Hellcats are. As for those dealerships planning to sell the SRT Demon above the automaker’s MSRP, they’ll get theirs “after priority production is completed.”

PostHeaderIcon Dodge Challenger SRT Demon – Powertrain Highlights

Dodge-Challenger-Demon-5

By now, I am sure, you all know the 2018 Dodge Challenger SRT Demon inside and out. A few days ago we even learned how much it costs to get one from the factory. But there are so many layers of awesomeness to this thing that the deeper you dig, the more details you come across. 

So this time let’s go deep on the Demon’s V8 engine, check it out on the dyno, and learn more about the components that get the 840 horsepower output of the engine and transfer it to the rear wheels.

Follow Our Channel for New Car Videos Everyday: Subscribe

First,power: The supercharged 6.2 liter HEMI V8 engine in the Dodge Challenger SRT Demon makes 840 bhp (626 kW) @ 6,300 rpm; 770 lb.-ft (1,044 N•m) @ 4,500 rpm with Direct Connection Controller and unleaded 100 octane minimum fuel. Thse figures with Premium 91 octane fuel are 808 bhp (603 kW) @ 6,300 rpm; 717 lb.-ft (972 N•m) @ 4,500 rpm.

This bad boy features the largest functional hood scoop opening (45.2 square inches) and triple-inlet air box (903.1 cubic inches), resulting in an airflow rating of 1,150 cubic feet per minute. A cool feature of the Demon engine is the SRT Power Chiller which redirects air conditioning refrigerant from cabin to chiller unit; reduces charge air temperature by 18 degrees Fahrenheit. The supercharger itself is a twin screw, 2.7 liters per revolution job with maximum boost pressure 14.5 psi (compared with 11.6 psi for Hellcat), dual water/air heat exchangers integrated into supercharger housing, and electric pump flows up to 11.9 gallons per minute.

As for the transmission, the Demon uses an upgraded automatic transmission torque converter with increased torque multiplication by 18 percent and stall speed increased 11 percent. In Drag Mode, transmission minimizes torque cut during gear changes – 400 millisecond shifts. The drivetrain also include a limited-slip differential, 20-percent thicker prop shaft made of high strength, low alloy steel tube; high strength steel stub shafts, Upgraded halfshafts with 8-ball Cross-Glide inner and outer joints; larger diameter barshafts with 41-spline count; high alloy steel inner and outer stub shafts, and 3.09 final drive ratio for maximum acceleration.

PostHeaderIcon Dodge Challenger Demon MSRP – Pricing Details Announced

dodge_challenger_srt_demon_41

Chrysler revealed today the official pricing for the simply awesome Dodge Challenger Demon, and yes, it is a helluva bargain. The 2018 Demon is priced at $84,995. Granted, it’s not exactly cheap, but nowhere else they give you the keys to 840 horsepower for $85K. 

What’s even cooler is that the Dodge Challenger Demon MSRP includes the $1,700 gas guzzler tax, excluding. But then you have to pay $1,095 in destination charge, so it’s not that big of a deal. What is a big deal is the fact that the Demon Crate and options available to owners for $1. That is the front passenger seat, rear seats in leather or cloth, and trunk kit all for one dollar.

By now you are probably familiar with the specs of the Dodge Challenger Demon, but let’s do a quick recap anyway. The beast is the world’s most powerful production V8 with 840 hp and 770 lb.-ft. of torque. That kind of power basicall makes the Demon a turnkey dragster, which is why National Hot Rod Association (NHRA) has already banned it from competition. They have also confirmed the Demon has a quarter-mile time of 9.65 seconds and 140 miles per hour (mph) which is as insane as the 0-60 mph sprint time of 2.3 seconds. You can beat Bugattis and Koenigseggs with this thing…at least in straight line.

So price-wise, the Demon is by no means a dream car. It is well within reach of many people. Still, you may not be able to get one at that price because, a. the dealers are going to put huge premiums on it since the thing is so desirable, and b. FCA is only producing the Demon as a single model-year car with a run of 3,000 for the United States and 300 for Canada. Hopefully, those numbers will be increased due to popular demand.

PostHeaderIcon When An 840-Horsepower Dodge Challenger Demon Is A Letdown, Hennessey Is Here To The Rescue

The massive hype and anticipation surrounding the Dodge Challenger SRT Demon reached a crescendo when the muscle car was officially unveiled at the 2017 New York Auto Show. For all intents and purposes, the Challenger SRT Demon lived up to the hype, that is if you thought its 840-horsepower met expectations. But some people, myself included, actually thought Dodge would’ve swung for the fences with a car that packed 1,000 horsepower. In that regard, the Demon was a bit of a letdown, that is until we heard news that American tuner extraordinaire Hennessey is making things right with a package for the muscle car that will turn the beast into the demonic 1,500-horsepower monster we thought it would be.

See, news of Hennessey’s intentions for the Demon shouldn’t come as a surprise to those who know what the tuner is capable of. This is, after all, the same company that makes a routine of developing massive aftermarket kits for America’s biggest and baddest muscle cars. It’s got kits for different iterations of the Dodge Charger, Ford Mustang, and Chevrolet Camaro, all of which peak at four-digit power outputs. It even has programs for models like the Chevrolet Corvette and the Ford F-150, and lest we forget, this is the same company that gave the world the Hennessey Venom GT, considered as the fastest production car in the world as long as you’re not talking to Bugatti.

So what sinister intentions does Hennessey have in store for the Dodge Challenger SRT Demon? A quick peek at the company’s website reveals a number of tuning programs for the muscle car that include power increases ranging from 1,000 horsepower to 1,500 horsepower. Other upgrades in store from the clinically insane tuner include new supercharger systems, new headers, parachutes(!), and an NHRA-legal roll cage for good measure.

Should Hennessey accomplish its intended goal for the Dodge Challenger SRT Demon, it’s going to go a long way in firmly establishing the muscle car as the standard-bearer of its segment. Not that it is already, but c’mon, 1,500 horsepower is 1,500 horsepower.

PostHeaderIcon This is Why The Dodge Demon Comes with Two Spare Tires

Dodge ain’t kidding about the 2018 Challenger SRT Demon’s ability to shred tires. Just check out those skinny temporary spare tires strapped in the trunk. The car even comes with its own hydraulic jack, for cryin’ out loud! Dodge must expect Demon owners to totally thrash those specialty Nitto cheater slicks to the point of destruction. But seriously, how thoughtful is that? Dodge doesn’t want Demons leaving the drag strip on rollback wreckers. That would kill Dodge’s image faster than United Airlines’ recent Battle Royale. Look even closer, and you’ll see an air compressor. Obviously, that’s to ensure these skinnies are perfectly inflated before heading home. Right?

Well, not exactly.

We’re well past April Fools Day, so we’ll drop the gag. No, these skinny tires aren’t compact spare tires. But you knew that. You’re a TopSpeed reader, making you smarter than the average bear. You know well and good these tires are for cutting weight. Dodge hasn’t announced the exact weight savings, but the pizza cutters certainly weigh much less than the 315/40R18 DOT-approved slicks.

But there’s more positives than just added lightness.

By swapping the 315-series front tires with the skinnies, which are technically called “front runners,” racers instantly gain another pair of slicks for the rear. That should help keep Demons racing while Nitto inevitably rushes to fill a backlog of Demon-branded slicks from ambitious owners. As for the jack, yeah, the Demon comes ready for a trackside tire swap. The air compressor will come in handy for adjusting tire pressures during the pre-check, too, should they be without a better source of compressed air.

And the results that quantify the front runners? These figures are probably ingrained into your subconscious by now, but the Demon hits 60 mph in just 2.3 seconds generating 1.8 G of force while carrying those tires above the ground for 2.92 feet on its way through the quarter-mile in just 9.65 seconds at 140 mph. It’s the quickest and most powerful production car ever.

If you didn’t already know that, check out TopSpeed’s full run-down on the 2018 Dodge Challenger SRT Demon here.


PostHeaderIcon Maybe You Won't Have to Sell Your Soul to Afford the Dodge Challenger SRT Demon

Dodge drove us crazy and practically milked the debut of the Dodge Challenger Demon to death through a long series of teaser videos that spanned across the first three months of the year. Then, the day of reckoning was upon us, and the fastest production muscle car ever was finally revealed. Packing a 6.2-liter V-8 with a 2.7-liter supercharger that makes 14.5 psi of boost, a factory transmission brake, a stripped down interior, and a thirst for high-octane fuel, the Demon promises to be the Dodge that we’ll be talking about through the turn of the decade. Hell, it can hit 60 mph in 2.3 seconds and 100 mph in 5.1 seconds. A quarter mile comes in at 9.65 seconds at 140 mph – not bad for a car that weighs 4,200 pounds, right? After all, it can beat a $1.4 million Ferrari. But, it does raise one serious questions: Just how much will pure evil cost you?

There’s no official word as of yet, but Road & Track caught up with Dodge boss, Tim Kuniskis, at the New York Auto Show and got him to give us a little hint. Again, it isn’t much to go by, but according to Kuniskis, it will be priced above the Hellcat (obviously) but “it’s gonna be well below six figures.” That’s a pretty big deal considering many were expecting a price tag somewhere around $100,000.

PostHeaderIcon Maximum Evil – What Is The Dodge Demon's Top Speed?

Unless you’ve been hiding under a proverbial rock for the last few weeks, you’re most likely familiar with the specs for the newly released Dodge Challenger SRT Demon. Just in case, here’s a quick refresher – 840 horsepower and 770 pound-feet of torque from a supercharged 6.2-liter V-8 running on 100-octane race fuel. 0-to-60 mph in 2.3 seconds. 200 pounds lighter than the Hellcat. 9.65 seconds at 140 mph in the quarter mile. 3-foot wheelies off the line. Dodge is quite clear on the matter – the Demon was built to do one job very, very well – traverse the quarter-mile run as quickly as possible while maintaining some semblance of street legality. At this point, it’s obvious this beast-mobile is quick, but there’s one tidbit of info Dodge has conveniently left out of the conversation thus far – how fast is it? To find out, we pulled out our calculator and did a little thought experiment.

Speculating on the top speed of a car like the Demon is actually a pretty complicated proposition, but if you’re looking for a quick and easy answer, here it is – 168 mph. That’s the maximum-rated velocity for the Demon’s Nitto NT05R drag radials, which means that’s pretty much the car’s top speed if you don’t swap out the rubber.

But let’s presume you did change the tires – given ideal conditions and a long enough track, how fast could the really Demon go? Read on to find out.

PostHeaderIcon Official: 2018 Dodge Challenger Demon

Dodge Challenger Demon-0

It felt like ages, but hours ago in New York the long awaited 2018 Dodge Challenger Demon finally broke cover and we are glad to report the wait has been well worth it because this thing is so dope… at least on paper. The specs beggars belief: 840 horsepower, 770 pounds-feet of torque, 0-30 mph: 1.0 second, 0-60 mph: 2.3 seconds, quarter-mile: 9.65 seconds at 140 mph.

Dodge Challenger Demon, then, is the true embodiment of American shock and awe in automotive form. What we have here is a muscle car that is more potent and – at least in street line – faster than most European supercars. Before going any further you need to see the Demon in action and listen to its howl. This car really is demonic!

The 840-horsepower, supercharged 6.2-liter HEMI Demon V-8 makes this version of the Challenger so fast, NHRA has already banned it from competition because it wouldn’t be fair to the others. Dodge Challenger Demon boasts many ‘firsts’ for this class and enjoys bragging rights such as world’s fastest accelerating 0-60 production car, world’s fastest quarter-mile for a production car, and world’s highest output production V8, although the last one might not be an accurate claim.

The muscle car also has the highest g-force acceleration of any production car at1.8 g and features innovative systems such as Air-Grabber induction system with the largest functional hood scoop, first-ever front-wheel lift in production car (2.92 feet), first-ever factory-production car with innovative SRT Power Chiller, After-Run Chiller that keeps cooling the supercharger/charge air cooler after the engine is shut off, first with TransBrake and Torque Reserve for drag racing.

Production of Dodge Challenger SRT Demon begins later this summer with a run of only 3,000 for the United States and 300 for Canada. Pricing is yet to be revealed.

PostHeaderIcon Despair Mortals, Your Time Has Come – Dodge Reveals Challenger Demon

After months of teasers and more than a few leaks, it’s finally here – the Dodge Challenger SRT Demon has arrived. Unveiled with the help of Wiz Khalifa and Vin Diesel during a slick, pyrotechnic-filled production the night before the 2017 New York International Auto Show, Dodge claims the Demon is the fastest production muscle car in the world, framing it as the cure for soulless mobile appliances. More importantly, here are the numbers you’ve been begging for.

Output is rated at 840 horsepower at the rear wheels thanks to a 2.7-liter supercharger making 14.5 psi of boost. Acceleration looks like 2.3 seconds in the 60-mph sprint, while 5.1 seconds is needed to hit 100 mph. Launch it right, and you’ll do wheelies on your way to a 9.65-second quarter mile pass at 140 mph. Curb weight is rated at 4,200 pounds, 200 pounds less than the “regular” Challenger Hellcat.

What’s more, Dodge revealed you’ll be able to spec yours to taste, from stripped-down track tool, to something more suitable for the street. For example, the front seat and rear seat are offered for a dollar a piece, while a stereo system is also on the options list.

PostHeaderIcon Ready your protective talisman – Dodge is preparing to summon the Demon!

This evening, just before the full moon rises, the Demon will appear. Bearing the marks of a hellish beast from the underworld, this four-wheeled monster will bestow incredible power upon those capable of controlling it. But be warned – this is not a vehicle for the timid. Think you’re up to the challenge? Then join us tonight as we watch the debut of this pitchfork-wielding drag strip domination machine.

That’s right – after weeks of teasers and cryptic messages, Dodge will finally reveal the highly anticipated Challenger SRT Demon. Despite the odd official hint and a surplus of rumors, there’s still quite a few questions left unanswered – how much horsepower will it make? How quick will it blitz the sprint to 60 mph and quarter mile run? Does it run on high-octane gasoline, or the souls of power-hungry mortals?

Hopefully we’ll uncover all the details tonight when the Demon makes its official debut. We’ll be covering it as it happens, but click this link at 7:30 PM EST if you wish to watch it all unfold for yourself. In the meantime, check out our review here.


PostHeaderIcon Dodge Challenger Demon Breaks Cover Early!

Arguably the most anticipated new car from the 2017 Auto Show, the Dodge Challenger SRT Demon is also the most teased vehicle in recent years. Dodge has been launching weekly video teasers and press releases for three months now, and we’ve seen the cars in various “The Fate of the Furious” film content. The almighty Demon is set to debut tomorrow at the Javits Center, but as it usually happens with highly anticipated cars, the beefed-up coupe made it on the web earlier than planned.

Granted, it’s not like we haven’t seen the Demon in unauthorized peeks several times until now, but the photo published by Wheelsage appears to be an official shot of the red-painted car we’ve seen in all official teasers. The coupe has all the extra bits and pieces that Dodge bragged about until now, including the big wheel arches, the revised aero package, the massive hood scoop, and the “Demon” badges on the front fenders. It definitely looks the part with all these add-ons, but at the same time, it’s still easy on the eyes and somewhat subdued. I like that a lot!

Of course, most of the things that make the Demon special hide under the skin and Dodge has yet to say anything about output. Thankfully, we won’t need to wait too much longer for the official data. FCA will roll out all the important information on April 11, alongside a full batch of photos, so make sure you stick around for updates and our comprehensive review. The Challenger SRT Demon will be the quickest and most powerful factory-made muscle car, so there’s plenty of stuff to get excited about!


PostHeaderIcon Dodge Challenger Demon Will Run on Both High-Octane and Premium Fuel

Set to be unveiled on April 11 at the 2017 New York Auto Show, the highly anticipated Dodge Challenger SRT Demon is less than a week away from breaking cover. And, Dodge is making sure the hype is as big as possible with a brand-new teaser video and a final release set for tomorrow. Today’s video is called “Fuel” and focuses on the car’s ground-breaking fuel system.

Essentially the first factory production car able to run on either 100+ high-octane unleaded fuel or the more common 91-octane fuel, the Challenger Demon can be set up for optimum performance on either public roads or the race track at the flick of a switch. Specifically, Dodge created a special powertrain control module calibrated for high-octane fuel and placed a new switch bank on the center stack for easy access. The car leaves the factory with the control module set for premium unleaded pump gasoline, but once at the track, the driver can easily switch to high-octane.

When activated, the controller enables the supercharged Hemi engine “to extract the maximum power from the knock-resistant high-octane fuel by optimizing spark timing,” and return “big changes in elapsed time.” Dodge says that mixing high-octane and premium unleaded fuels in the tank won’t hurt the Demon’s engine, but it turns out that the high-octane function won’t activate if the combined fuel octane is too low. Drivers will be able to check the octane in the gauge display thanks to a controller that monitors the engine’s knock sensors. On top of the dual fuel pump, the SRT Demon will also feature larger fuel injectors and higher rail pressure.

Needless to say, the Demon is indeed the kind of car you can drive to the drag strip, run the quarter mile, and then return home with minor modifications.

The 2017 New York Auto Show is just around the corner and so is the highly anticipated Dodge Challenger SRT Demon, the vehicle that may revolutionize the muscle car segment. With the official unveiling less than two weeks away, Dodge launched yet another teaser that showcases an industry-first feature. This time around, the FCA brand brags that the Challenger Demon is the first-ever, factory production car with a liquid-to-air charge air cooler chiller system.

Dodge says that the exclusive performance feature enables the muscle car to achieve charge air induction temperatures previously unattainable by pressure-charged street-legal production vehicles. While conventional cooling methods use air or coolant to reduce the air induction temperature as it is pushed through the charge air cooler, the Challenger’s air conditioning system is diverted to cool the engine’s charge air cooling system when needed. This happens only when the car is used in Drag mode.

Thanks to this system, the intake air temperature can drop by up to 45 degrees Fahrenheit, which enhances performances at the drag strip. By how much compared to the Hellcat is still a mystery but more data will become available when the Demon breaks cover at the 2017 New York Auto Show next month. Stay tuned for updates!


PostHeaderIcon The Challenger SRT Demon Will Terrorize the Strip Thanks to a Factory TransBrake

Another week has passed, and that means that it’s time to see yet another Dodge Demon teaser video. So far, the videos have shown us where the demon shed some weight, what kind of tires it has, the suspension system, its hardened driveline and launch system that prevents wheel hop, exhaust note, and the performance pages in its 8.4-inch uConnect infotainment system. The wildest thing so far is considered by most to be the way the car literally bends its tires on launch, and we get to see more of that again in this video, right before the car hauls ass down a dragstrip looking and sounding as sexy as it could be.

But, that’s not all that we learned with the release of the 11th teaser video. Dodge has also announced that the Challenger SRT Demon will be the first production car ever to be equipped from the factory with a TransBrake. That’s right, Dodge wasn’t lying when it said the Demon was built for the straight line, and this new little piece of data proves exactly that. Instead of having to use the two-foot method to secure a good launch, the driver will be able to rev the engine up to 2,350 rpm without having to touch the brake pedal. The system makes use of the paddle shifters to engage and release the TransBrake, which is said to result in a 30-percent decrease in reaction time over traditional two-foot launches. The system locks the output shaft of the transmission and is said to increase launch boost pressures by 105 percent and engine launch torque by 120 percent – now those bending tires really make sense, right?

But, that’s not all, as the driveline also features a preload process that guarantees engine torque is applied through the entire driveline – all the way to the rear wheels. According to Dodge, this system allows full engine torque to be applied to the wheels in as little as 150 milliseconds after the paddle shifter (TransBrake) is released. All told, you’ll experience faster acceleration at launch, better 60-foot and quarter-mile times, and 40 percent more torque at launch compared to vehicles that require the two-foot launch method. Doesn’t sound too bad at all, but we’re ready to see the car in the metal. It will officially debut at the New York Auto Show in a couple of weeks, but until then, check out the latest teaser video and let us know what you think so far.
