After months of waiting and teasing, Dodge has finally announced the price for the 300 2018 Dodge Challenger SRT Demon models that are coming to Canada.
The 6.2L V8 with 808 hp and 717 lb-ft of torque will start with an MSRP of $109,995. That gets you a two-speaker stereo and a driver's floor mat. There is no passenger seat, no sound insulation, and no trunk carpet. That's not a lot of luxury, but the performance bits make up for it. There's the A/C powered chiller to bring down intake temperatures, the largest hood scoop of any production car, lightweight brakes, thicker driveshaft, drag suspension, 315 wide Nitto drag radials, and launch control. Oh yeah, and it'll run nine-second quarter mile times.
It's always the options list that gets you. Want a passenger seat? That'll cost you. Trunk carpet? That'll set you back too. Oh, and you want the personalised Demon crate that gives you the full 840 hp, plus a jack, skinny front wheels, and a Snap-on cordless impact wrench? That's going to cost you a whole dollar.
That's right, each of those options is only $1. Less than the coffee that'll soak your carpet when you forget it's in the cup holder for one of those 1.8g launches.
There are some real option packages though. You can add a comfort group that puts the 18 speaker stereo back in along with Alcantara seat coverings over heated and ventilated front seats. The stereo and the seats are available in separate packages, and a special car cover and battery charger are also available.
The Dodge Challenger SRT Demon should arrive at dealers later this year. But if you don't have your order in already, you might be too late.
