New York Auto Show After a months-long social-media campaign of teaser videos and cryptic clues, Dodge finally pulled the wraps all the way off its new king-of-the-hill muscle car at a special event in conjunction with the 2017 New York Auto show. The 2018 Dodge Challenger SRT Demon is a factory hot-rodded muscle car that is more relentlessly focused on straight-line, drag-race-style acceleration than any regular production vehicle in history.

2017 Chicago Auto ShowDodge is unveiling a muscled-up version of its already muscular large SUV at the 2017 Chicago Auto Show. The 2018 Dodge Durango SRT takes the SRT sub-brand’s usual high-lux, high-performance tricks—an uber-powerful engine, performance suspension tuning, unique styling cues, and upscale interior trimmings—and applies them to the biggest SUV in Dodge’s model lineup.

It’s pretty safe to say that Dodge’s 707-bhp supercharged “Hellcat” Hemi V-8 generated considerable excitement when it was introduced in the 2015 Challenger SRT Hellcat. While the two-door came first and dominated the headlines, remember Dodge soon after plopped those 707 ponies into the Challenger’s slightly larger four-door sibling to create the Charger SRT Hellcat. Could collectors find the more-door Hellcat the more desirable of the two?

Since the modern-day Dodge Challenger arrived for the 2008 model year, an SRT model with a naturally aspirated V-8 has stood atop the lineup. Even for the updated 2015 models, such an SRT 392 model continues with a 6.4-liter Hemi newly upgraded to 485 bhp.

Boosted by a supercharger, the Hellcat’s 6.2-liter V8 pumps out a whopping 707 horsepower.

Consumer Guide First Spin If someone had told me back in the dark years of the early ‘80s that I would one day be driving a 707-horsepower street-legal sedan – or street-legal anything – I wouldn’t have given up my life-long car passion to go into the computer industry.

Capping the 2015 Dodge Challenger lineup is the 707-horsepower Hellcat. Editor John managed a 12.2-second quarter-mile time when his turn came to face the drag strip.

You have to feel a little sorry for the product-information specialists and executives at Dodge when the topic of the 2015 Challenger comes up. They’ve spent who knows how much time working up all kinds of explanatory material about revised styling this and new 8-speed automatic that—and it’s all going in one ear and out the other because everybody in their audience is staring slack-jawed at the Hellcat.
