Dodge Durango SRT: Did We Hear 707hp Hellcat?

Leading up to the Demon's debut will be a flurry of teaser videos, photos, and sketches.

A demon from the past returns and it is set to arrive as the next Hellcat.

That is saying something, given that the supercharged 6.2-liter Hemi Hellcat engine already puts out 707 hp and 650 lb-ft of torque, inducing ridiculous power-fuelled grins for those who drive it in a Challenger SRT Hellcat coupe or the Charger SRT Hellcat sedan. With that being said, it looks like those that recognize the devil from the 70s will get a treat from Fiat Chrysler Automobiles (FCA).

Dodge plans on taking its muscle vehicle game to extremes with the New York Auto Show introduction of the 2018 Dodge Challenger SRT Demon-a vehicle whose tire-massacring potential seems promising, given the success of the outgoing SRT Hellcat.

National Law Enforcement Appreciation Day is Monday
Being called into public service as a police officer comes with a host of risks, but the men and women who serve are not afraid. The number of law enforcement officers in MI has dropped by 18 percent since 2001, falling from 22,500 to 18,500 officers.

What is the 2018 Dodge Challenger SRT Demon?

Dodge will introduce a new variant of the Challenger SRT named Demon at the New York Auto Show.

Unfortunately, there are no details revealed yet regarding the engine of the Dodge Challenger SRT Demon as reported.

The first in a string of video teasers has also been released, showing the Hellcat turning into the Demon. "It will be the SRT Demon". Forty-plus years later, after the success of the vaguely Beelzebubbian Hellcat badge, FCA has revived the Demon nameplate for what it terms "Dodge's new ultimate performance halo". If Dodge does manage to extract more power from the 6.2-liter premium fuel swiller, it's almost guaranteed that the Demon will feature the all-wheel-drive (AWD) system that was recently launched on the Challenger GT. Sending so much power to just the rear wheels can pose some... And then NY. If you watch closely, you can also catch a few quick glimpses of the new Challenger model, and Dodge says that each video will be filled with hints and easter eggs. Refusing to be caged, the beast transforms, thus beginning a new chapter in the Dodge brand's performance legacy. Dodge also will promote the teaser campaign on its Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram social media pages. A countdown clock tells viewers when the next installment will be uncaged.
