Dodge Challenger Demon Production Ends After 2018
The Dodge Challenger Hellcat is a real piece of work, but while it is impressive, no one really sees the need in getting it. But as over the top and excessive it is, the 840-hp Challenger Demon manages to overshine it. The front wheels lift off the ground when you accelerate hard! If you want to get one, don’t wait until 2019.
Dodge Demon production has been rumored to continue on even after 2019, given its performance and the demand from customers. The impact has been great that it forced Ford’s hand to double its GT production. But Dodge has made it clear in the past that they only intend to produce the Demon for just one year, regardless of the consumer demand.
In an interview with Tim Kuniskis, Dodge’s head honcho during that time, he said the Demon would be “2018 only, one-and-done. The people who sit back and wait for next year are going to miss out.” That’s pretty much a definitive statement. As a matter of fact, every buyer who preorders received a letter which says, “congratulations on being one of only 3,300 passionate performance enthusiasts to own a piece of automotive history.” That’s very telling of Dodge’s plan to make the Demon a limited-edition car.
With Steve Beahm as Dodge’s new boss, that speculation could still change. But if that were to happen, Dodge would face a lawsuit from angry customers who believed the Demon would only be available until 2018.
