Dodge Challenger SRT Demon Goes On Sale From $84,995, Optional Demon Crate Costs $1

Dodge have kept their word as they are offering the new Challenger SRT Demon from well under $100,000, on the US market.

Prices for the devilish straight-line monster start from $84,995, including the $1,700 gas guzzler tax, but before taking it home, you will also have to pay an additional $1,095 as a destination charge.

Eighty-five thousand dollars is not just a number in a business case to Dodge; we know it’s a lot of money and a significant up-charge over a Challenger Hellcat,” said Tim Kuniskis, Head of Passenger Cars at Dodge, SRT, Chrysler, and Fiat.

We worked very hard to build as much value into the Challenger SRT Demon as possible – features, performance and exclusivity that simply can’t be duplicated with a goal of maintaining, and possibly even growing, as much future value as possible“.

Those looking for just a bit more can spec their Dodge Challenger SRT Demon with a few optional features that can be had from just $1 (MSRP) each. These include the front passenger seat, rear seat available in leather or cloth, trunk carpet kit, and the marketed Demon Crate and performance parts, which the FCA-owned brand says they are valued at $6,140.

The latter upgrade will unleash the muscle car’s full potential at the drag strip, allowing the 6.2-liter supercharged HEMI V8 engine to produce 840 horses and 770 pound-feet (1,044Nm) of torque.

Bringing the Demon’s final price close to the $100k mark isn’t hard, as the automaker also offers a bunch of optional features, such as the Leather Front Seat Group, with its Laguna leather and Alcantara suede covered seats, front passenger seat, heated and ventilated leather front seats, heated steering wheel, bright pedals, power tilt/telescoping steering column, and premium floor mats for $1,595.

Paying another $995 will unlock the Comfort Audio Group, which brings a front passenger cloth seat, premium floor mats, bright pedals, and a premium Harman Kardon audio system, with a 900W amplifier, two subwoofers and 18 speakers.

For $2,495, Dodge can throw in the Comfort Group, which combines both the aforementioned packages, while those who must have a sunroof will have to pay an extra $4,995.

The Black Satin Graphics Package, which brings a choice of 15 exterior colors, including the satin black painted hood, roof, and decklid, costs $3,495, while the Black Satin Hood alone will set you back for $1,995. Customers can also pay extra to have their names attached to the Demon Crates.

Dodge will start producing the 2018 Challenger SRT Demon later this summer at the Brampton assembly plant. 3,000 units are destined for the United States, and 300 for Canada, all of them covered by a 3-year/36,000-mile limited warranty and a 5-year/60,000-mile limited powertrain coverage.

The first cars will arrive at dealers starting this fall.

    whoa! i’m i seeing that correct, does it really lift its front wheels off the ground? or is that photoshoped?

    • Dave A.

      it really did that.

  • Jan Mleziva

    Why do you need bicycle wheels in front when you want to perform 402.33m sprint?

    • Jason Miller

      Less drag, less weight.

      • Jan Mleziva

        Thanks! It looks ridiculous anyways ?

  • Dennis James

    A dragster with warranty ? That’s really nice !

  • Karl

    While I will admit to performance numbers being great I just can’t see spending that much money for a car with no front passenger seat standard.

    • Dustin

      You don’t have a spare $1 to have it installed?…

      • Karl

        I think this car is way over priced

        • Status

          Nothing is overpriced if it’s exclusive.

          • Karl

            What is so exclusive about a over ten year old chassis that weighs like a pig?

          • Status

            I never said the Demon was exclusive. I’m not saying it’s overpriced either.

          • Jay

            you just said it isn’t overpriced if its exclusive… but now the ‘demon’ isn’t exclusive lol. or maybe you just generalized in saying it but if that’s the case why reply to him lmao

          • Status

            The Demon isn’t exclusive. It’s already been correctly stated that it’s already a 10 year old car underneath it all.

            I still stand by my original statement.

          • Jay

            So is it or is it not overpriced?

          • Status

            This way never about price. I don’t know why you’re still getting hung up on it.

            By the way, before you continue to derail this, I said “Nothing is overpriced if it’s exclusive”.

            You THINK I said of the Demon “you just said it isn’t overpriced if its exclusive”

            I never said the Demon was exclusive. I never said anything about it’s price. Why are you making this hard for yourself?

          • Jay

            it had to be about price for you to state it want overpriced if it was exclusive. I stated you may have not been talking about the demon already.. I don’t understand why you are making it difficult.

          • Status

            But if I wasn’t talking about the Demon at all (neither it’s price nor it’s non-exclusiveness), then what the hell did you think I meant by “Nothing is overpriced if it’s exclusive”?

          • Jay

            Which is why I asked in the first place. You still refuse to clarify..

          • Status

            You mean you don’t know?

            More bluntly: If something is exclusive, price is no barrier.

          • Benjamin B.

            It’s an old Mercedes with a big supercharged Hemi.

          • Status

            I know it’s an old E-class, therefore it’s not exclusive. Geez, between you and Jay, it’s not that hard to grasp.

        • Jay

          yes and they know it too, that’s why they charge $1 more for the accessories.

  • Mill0048

    So, who in their right mind wouldn’t get the Crate for a $1? Most of the buyers will be collectors or track enthusiasts. Both will want it. And even if you didn’t want it you could sell it and offset the cost of the car and taxes. Also, why does Dodge even price it that way?

  • Denzel

    That’s steal but still not as trackable unless you get approved to use at a local strip and have the necessary license and equipment. The other alternative is go to a airfield if you can.

  • Benjamin B.

    FCA dealers are notorious for markups. I suspect customers will spend over $100k on average.

  • why the hell they charge that $1 for??

  • Tumbi Mtika

    This is gonna harder to get than the GT350. Damn.
