Dodge Challenger SRT Demon 170 Made To Set New Performance Benchmarks


Dodge is introducing a 1,025 horsepower 2023 Dodge Challenger SRT Demon 170. The brand’s seventh and final “Last Call” special-edition model was unveiled at the Dodge Last Call Powered by Roadkill Nights Vegas performance festival at The Strip at Las Vegas Motor Speedway.

With a 945 lb-ft (at 4,200 r.p.m.) production HEMI engine, the Dodge Challenger SRT Demon 170 reaches 100 km/h (60 m.p.h.) in 1.66 seconds. The Demon 170 can also reach 900 horsepower and 810 lb-ft of torque on E10 fuel.

Black keys are also banned from the Challenger SRT Demon 170, as the Dodge Challenger will be delivered only with red key fobs. The 2018 Challenger SRT Demon featured a black key fob to limit horsepower and a red key fob to unlock full output. Horsepower levels are determined not by a key but by sensing the percentage of ethanol fuel content.

“To celebrate the end of the HEMI muscle-car era, we pulled off all the governors to reach a new level, a new benchmark of ‘factory-crazy’ production car performance,” said Tim Kuniskis, Dodge brand chief executive officer – Stellantis. “In 2015, Dodge shocked the world with the 707 horsepower Hellcat. Then in 2018 we did it with the 840 horsepower Demon, and now we are doing it again with the 1,025 horsepower Demon 170, the world’s first sustainable-energy, eight-second factory-production, street-legal muscle car.”
