Dodge Demon Will Satisfied Car Nerds With Data

The slow tease of the 2018 Dodge Challenger SRT Demon has continued this morning with details of the car’s infotainment system. Perhaps it comes as no surprise that SRT is leveraging FCA’s Uconnect infotainment system to let Demon owners totally geek out.

Through the car’s 8.4-inch touchscreen display owners will be able to access all kinds of performance data, even more than the normal SRT cars. Data such as power curves (with shift points plotted), cool down graphs, 0-60 and 0-100 mph charts and a whole ton of other data.

What is newsworthy about this is that a lot of the data the Demon will display on its own typically require third party devices to capture. This should satisfy folks who like to tune their cars or, more importantly, take them to the drag strip. And by all accounts, the Demon is designed for the drag strip.

Aside from static information displays, Dodge is also saying Demon owners will have a ton of customization options as well. The customization will surround three different drive modes:

Auto (Street) Mode options:

  • Multiple levels of engine performance
  • Three levels of suspension “feel and response”
  • Three levels of steering “feel and response”

Drag Mode options:

  • Multiple levels of engine performance
  • One level of transmission shifting “speed and firmness”
  • One level of traction control
  • One level of suspension “feel and response”
  • One level of steering “feel and response”

Custom Mode options:

  • Nearly every combination of options available in Auto (Street) or Drag can be configured in the Custom Drive Mode

It is also worth noting that the image released this morning features the number “7:57,” which is a number that’s popped up in several of the Demon teasers. There is a high degree of speculation that 757 is the horsepower number for it, but we’ll all have to wait until April 11th for the details.
