Just about three years ago, FCA US LLC revealed the Dodge Challenger Hellcat and the automotive world went collectively over the power numbers. The 707 horsepower under the hood of that automobile is what garnered the vehicle so much press, and rightly so, as it was and until recently remained the best per-horsepower value in the industry. Power that mighty doesn’t typically come at so reasonable a price, but power that mighty is newsworthy no matter what it costs.
It won’t come as too big a surprise, then, that we are incredibly excited here at Vicksburg Chrysler Dodge Jeep® RAM to announce that FCA US LLC has topped the Hellcat just 33 months later. Be warned, the power numbers you’re about to read can be shocking. You might want to make sure you’re sitting down.
Thanks to its massive supercharged V8 engine, the brand new Dodge Challenger SRT Demon will be capable of generating upwards of 840 horsepower, a full 133-hp boost over the Hellcat models. There are vehicles available for purchase right now with less horsepower than the jump this vehicle makes over what had been the most powerful muscle car in existence. Let that sink in for a minute.
To say that Battle Creek, MI customers are excited would be an understatement, but like with the Dodge Challenger Hellcat and Dodge Charger Hellcat models, we expect this one to be pretty hard to get a hold of. While it’s just a one-seater, perhaps limiting some of its appeal to buyers who were hoping it could double as an everyday commuter, power numbers that impressive at this price point don’t come around all that often. Of course, if FCA US LLC keeps up this pace, there will be an even more impressive improvement in just three years, and we’ll get to be impressed all over again!
