Dodge Demon Discontinued And There Will Never Be Another One

FCA has confirmed that its Dodge Challenger Demon has been discontinued… Permanently.

According to FCA‘s Head of Passenger Cars in North America Tim Kuniskis, the Dodge Demon is one and done. Speaking with Muscle Cars & Trucks, Kuniskis says the move is in part designed to make sure current Demon owners don’t revolt. Dodge built 3,300 units of the Demon which isn’t a bad production run by any means.

“You know what would happen, if those 3,300 people that paid a lot of money for a serialized car, do you know what they would do to me if we brought it back?” Kuniskis said. “The Demon isn’t coming back”, he confirmed. The U.S. got 3,000 units while Canada got just 300 units ensuring a sustained resale value for years to come.

The Dodge Challenger Demon will retire as the most powerful, fastest production car ever built thanks to its monster 840-horsepower 6.2-liter V8 that can push the car the 60 mph in 2.1 seconds and through the quarter-mile in 9.65 seconds. That kicks the pants right off a Tesla Model S. Ok, maybe not, but it is faster than the Tesla which puts the Demon in a very exclusive category.

As for what we can expect next, it’s hard to say. Dodge just unveiled the Widebody Charger with 707 horsepower that will join the current Challenger Widebody and SRT Hellcat Redeye that delivers 797 horsepower.

Will we see the actual Demon engine in another vehicle one day? Unlikely, but there is a Ram Rebel TRX in the works so maybe Dodge could go crazy there…
