Dodge Challenger SRT Demon Gets Factory-Installed TransBrake

Challenger Hellcat Convertible 2

Hold on to your pockets because the 2018 Dodge Challenger SRT Demon will likely be around the same price tag as the Dodge Challenger SRT Hellcat which is roughly around $62K.

The next teaser for the highly anticipated Dodge Challenger SRT Demon has been released, titled "Lock and Load", with a video giving us a preview of its TransBrake function. This is because an internal "transmission brake" engages First and Reverse together to lock the output shaft and the rear wheels. This means prior to launching, the driver only needs to keep a foot on the throttle - as opposed to the throttle and brake - and unlocks the trans-brake by bumping a shift paddle on the steering wheel. This time it's all about the car's trans brake system. The overall result is faster acceleration at launch, better 60-foot times and improved quarter-mile times.

Dodge says while using the trans-brake, the Demon will launch at 2,350 RPM, and that supercharger boost pressure is increased by 105 percent and launch torque levels by 120 percent.

The Dodge Demon will come equipped with a TransBrake.

In January, FCA promised to unveil a new ultimate performance halo vehicle, the 2018 Dodge Challenger SRT Demon, during the New York Auto Show week in April.

The automaker has been teasing fans via its Demon videos and it's obvious that this new model will be able to dethrone the 707hp Hellcat as the most powerful model. A countdown clock tells viewers when the next installment will be uncaged.

The full SRT Demon reveal (Will there be anything left to show!?) is scheduled for April 11 at an event ahead of the 2017 New York International Auto Show.

Dodge is promoting the teaser campaign on its Facebook, Twitter and Instagram social media pages, directing fans to www.ifyouknowyouknow.com and encouraging them to use the hashtag #DodgeDemon.
