Dodge Challenger Demon will have special mode for race fuel

Dodge Challenger Demon will have special mode for race fuel

The auto is expected to have a stellar release in the global debut on April 11, 2017.

Dodge's forthcoming halo vehicle, the Challenger SRT Demon, will have expensive taste.

You'll have to do a little work on the auto to get the benefit, and the highest horsepower, though just how many more horses the Demon will produce over the Dodge Challenger Hellcat's 707 has not been revealed.

After the teaser video Fuel, a new video "Judgement Day" will be unveiled today as well.

Just like in the previous teasers, Dodge shows the 2018 Dodge Challenger SRT Demon in an undisclosed Dodge test facility.

Dodge announced the Demon's fuel needs as part of its ongoing promotional campaign for the new performance coupe, dubbed "If You Know You Know". Those won't be released until the Demon is officially unveiled in NY on Tuesday. This high octane fuel will be available at selected places. With a massive supercharger, a torque converter and more power than the Hellcat, there's no way the SRT Demon gets decent fuel economy, even if it is 200 pounds lighter than its predecessor and has removable back seats. The Demon is also upgraded with larger fuel injectors using higher rail pressure. There will be a switch to Direct Connection controller. This will all happen by optimizing the spark timing. Dodge promises improved elapsed times on the drag strip with race gas.

But Dodge engineers weren't able to design a fuel system that could handle the metaphysical nature of the human psyche, so the Demon will run on 100 octane instead.
