dodge demon

March 9, 2017 , Auburn Hills, Mich. - The 2018 Dodge Challenger SRT Demon arms the driver with real-time information.
 
The SRT Performance Pages are a key part of the driver-oriented Uconnect system and its 8.4-inch touchscreen in the center of the instrument panel.

Unique capabilities of the Performance Pages for the Challenger SRT Demon include:

  • Real-time graphic display of engine horsepower and torque with gear changes plotted
    • The power levels can be data recorded to track performance gains from changes, such as use of the Direct Connection Performance Parts
  • Real-time display of the supercharger intercooler coolant temperature
    • The Challenger SRT Demon sports the first-ever factory production car After-Run Chiller, which keeps the cooling fan and intercooler pump running after engine shutdown until a targeted temperature is reached
  • Driver-selectable line-lock, rpm-adjustable launch control and by-individual-gear-adjustable shift light in the instrument cluster
  • Timers for reaction time; 0-60 mph, 0-100 mph, eighth-mile and quarter-mile elapsed time and vehicle speed
  • Display of instantaneous and peak lateral and longitudinal g-forces
  • Gauge read-outs for engine oil pressure and temperature, coolant temperature, transmission fluid temperature, intake air temperature, air-fuel ratio, intercooler coolant temperature, boost pressure and battery voltage
    • Gauge read-outs can be displayed as real time graphs with data record functionality 


With the new data recorder feature, Challenger SRT Demon drivers can build an archive of data to help optimize the car for track and weather conditions, as well as improving driving techniques.

The Dodge Challenger SRT Demon’s Performance Pages also allow drivers to select between three different Drive Modes: Auto (Street), Drag and Custom.

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 
    • As an example, a Challenger SRT Demon driver could select the elements of Drag Mode related to engine and transmission performance, but could select Sport Mode for the suspension and steering, providing the on-road driving dynamics of a Challenger SRT Hellcat
