It will be called Demon 170.
SRT’s always answered the call.
Almost everything you see on the new Demon is unchanged – it’s what you can’t see that is all-new.
Ladies and gentlemen, fasten your seatbelts because Dodge is about to take you on a ride like no other. Truly, Dodge is making sure that history will NEVER forget the Challenger and the Demon. Meet the all-new and upcoming 2023 Dodge Challenger SRT Demon 170 – the quickest, fastest, and most powerful muscle car in the world! Unveiled at the Dodge Last Call Powered by Roadkill Nights Vegas performance festival at The Strip at Las Vegas Motor Speedway, this seventh and final “Last Call” special-edition model truly packs a punch.
With its impressive 1,025 horsepower and 945 lb-ft production HEMI engine, the Challenger SRT Demon 170 is a force to be reckoned with. It can reach 60 mph in a jaw-dropping 1.66 seconds and features the highest g-force acceleration of any production car at 2.004 gs. Get ready to experience the ultimate rush with the all-powerful Dodge Challenger SRT Demon 170.
Get ready to be blown away by the unmatched performance of the all-new Dodge Challenger SRT Demon 170. This powerhouse of a machine delivers an impressive 1,025 total horsepower and 945 lb-ft of torque on an E85 ethanol blend. The 6.2L iron block variant of the Hellcat engine is endowed with a modified 3.0L supercharger with a 3.02-inch pulley to deliver 14% more overdrive, and a larger snout with a 105mm throttle body, among countless other mods.
But the Demon 170 isn’t just about sheer horsepower – it also has the highest g-force acceleration of any production car at 2.004 Gs and can reach 60 miles per hour in a lightning-fast 1.66 seconds. Plus, it runs the quarter-mile in an NHRA-certified 8.91 seconds at a whopping 151.17 mph, making it history’s first-ever eight-second factory muscle car.
However, producing full performance at the drag strip can and will, however, result in an NHRA violation letter “ban” for running a sub-nine-second quarter-mile without a safety cage and parachute. The red keys only accentuate the Demon 170’s powerful engine, with horsepower output being determined by the percentage of ethanol detected in the fuel. For example, if pump gasoline is all you have access to, power will be down to a measly 880 hp 800 torque.
The Dodge Challenger SRT Demon 170 is truly in a class of its own when it comes to scary heart-stopping performance.
Putting the power down
The Dodge Challenger SRT Demon 170 isn’t just about power – it also boasts an array of design and feature upgrades to deliver a truly unparalleled driving experience. Extensive component upgrades and features are critical to harnessing the Demon 170’s 1,025 horsepower, an all-new driveline. Some of its components are heavily reinforced such as the rear prop shaft which is 30% stronger than the previous Demon’s, and 43-spline rear half shafts. The Demon 170 also features patent-pending TransBrake 2.0 technology with torque-shaping capability, unique Drag Mode suspension, and staggered drag radial tires with fender flares.
The Challenger SRT Demon 170 is equipped with huge 17-inch by 11-inch rear wheels that can accommodate wider, taller, and higher-profile Mickey Thompson P315/50R17 ET Street R drag radials. These ET Street R drag radials are exclusively developed by Mickey Thompson Tires and are specifically designed to improve on-street performance. This bespoke version features additional grooves, and its soft R2 compound provides better traction. Additionally, the tire construction with increased sidewall height allows for a “wrinkle effect,” which improves power transfer and reduces tire slip. The smaller 18-inch by 8-inch front wheels of the Challenger SRT Demon 170 are fitted with Mickey Thompson 245/55R18 ET Street front tires, optimized for the drag strip. This ensures that the weight and rolling resistance of the front wheels remain low.
Optional Lacks Enterprises industry-exclusive two-piece lightweight carbon fibre wheels help lighten the vehicle by 157 lbs compared to the Challenger SRT Hellcat Redeye Widebody (for a total of about 4,275 lbs.).
The wheels and other options for the Challenger SRT Demon 170 will be available through Direct Connection, the Dodge performance parts brand.
Visually deceiving, kinda…
The Demon 170’s Air-Grabber hood and Air Catcher headlights maximize air intake flow, while the SRT Power Chiller diverts the air conditioning system to cool the supercharger intercooler for optimal air intake temperature. The thing about the new Demon 170 is that it might look like the original Demon but looks are deceiving. Specifically, the only visual changes are the absence of front fender flares and different wheels.
The interior is equally impressive with a serialized Demon instrument panel badge, four interior choices, and a customized Demon badge featuring a 170-neck tattoo and a new E-85 representative yellow Demon’s eye. The Dodge Challenger SRT Demon 170’s design and features will leave you speechless!
