2018 Dodge Demon Review

Dodge has always been known for its strength and power, and nothing says power like the 2018 Dodge Demon. With a style rivaling that of racers, sports cars, and luxury sedans, the Demon might actually be on a league of its own. Dodge is boasting the Demon’s features to be totally unrivaled in the industry and for good reason also. They’re not kidding when they called this car its name. It might just be that scary.


Dodge took performance as one of its top priorities with the Demon. It’s powered by a Supercharged 6.2-liter HEMI® SRT Demon V8 engine. It also features a Torque Reserve Launch System. What this all means is that your car will pretty much go from standstill to 60 in less than nothing. That’s 2.3 seconds to be exact, which is, as a matter of fact, the fastest number for any production car in the world. And to counterbalance this power, the 2018 Dodge Demon is equipped with drag radial tires to optimize the car’s braking performance. It truly is a drag strip-ready vehicle, but there’s nothing to stop you from taking this car anywhere you’d like.


The Demon is rigged for drag race option, hands down. Being an SRT vehicle, it has a built-in SRT drive mode that’s accessible via the touchscreen. Under Drag mode, the car has controllable settings where you can specify your preferences for stability, suspension, and many other technical aspects. Other Drag mode features include Line Lock and TransBrake to help the vehicle launch onto the strip with fiery intensity and a cloud of smoke behind it.

Dodge Demon is not all for the drag racer; although, if you buy this vehicle, you might as well take it for a race or two just for kicks. The average driver can still enjoy its many other features and capabilities. While just a tad bulkier than its Dodge Challenger counterparts, the Demon drives smoothly as anything else on regular streets. It’s got the best shocks for such a smooth ride and the exhaust is nothing you would expect from a racecar at all. However, you can expect the car to pick up fairly quickly, so you’ll have to watch out for accelerating too much too soon.


The inside of the Dodge Demon will definitely give you the racecar feel. It is sleek but also highly functional. The driver seat is set up for precision driving. Dodge Demon insignias also line the seats, reminding you of what the car is capable of. This car naturally has no rear seats, and the default model actually doesn’t have passenger seats either. The only explanation for this is to control the weight. This car is built for racing, after all. You do have options to have a passenger seat or rear seats installed if desired, and you can do so for only $1 each. Being that the 2018 Dodge Demon is barely legal to drive in the streets, you can imagine how much power this car can really pull off. It might be wise to go without passengers and with a hefty insurance to top. Truly, nothing is like the Demon right now.
