At last, the Demon price

by Patrick Rall on

Dodge has finally announced the complete pricing for the 2018 Dodge Challenger SRT Demon. When you factor in the gas guzzler tax, destination, the cost of the Demon Crate and both the front passenger and rear seats, the MSRP starts at $86,093. However, if all you care about is running 9.60s with a street legal, factory built muscle car, you can get into the Demon with everything that you need for the low price of $86,091.

Technically, the 2018 Dodge Challenger SRT Demon has an MSRP of $83,295. The gas guzzler tax adds $1,700, the destination fee adds $1,095, and the Demon Crate, the front passenger seat, and the rear seat assembly each add a dollar — yes, that is literally $1 for each.

According to Dodge, the contents of the Demon Crate when priced out individually would cost around $6,140, but buyers can opt-in for all of the contents of that magical box for just one dollar. The factory trunk carpeting can also be added in for a dollar.

“Eighty-five thousand dollars is not just a number in a business case to Dodge; we know it’s a lot of money and a significant up-charge over a Challenger Hellcat,” said Tim Kuniskis, who heads up Dodge, Chrysler, and Fiat cars in North America.  “We worked very hard to build as much value into the Challenger SRT Demon as possible – features, performance and exclusivity that simply can’t be duplicated with a goal of maintaining, and possibly even growing, as much future value as possible.”

Demon Options Detailed

The 2018 Demon does come with a few more options than we had expected, all of which make the 840 horsepower Challenger a little more street-friendly.

The Comfort Audio Group includes the passenger’s side seat, an 18 speaker Harman Kardon sound system with including two subwoofers and a 900W amplifier, premium floor mats and bright pedals. This package has an MSRP of $995.

The Leather Front Seat Group add a Laguna leather and Alcantara suede-wrapped seats with an embossed Demon logo on the seatback. This package comes with the passenger’s side seat and both front seats are both heated and cooled, but this package also adds a heated steering wheel, a power tilt and telescope steering wheel, premium floor mats and bright finished pedals. The Leather Front Seat Group has an MSRP of $1,595.

The Comfort Group with Leather Seats, as you might imagine, combines the features of the Comfort Group with the features of the Leather Front Seat Group, so this package includes the leather and suede, heated and cooled front seats, the premium floor mats, the power heated/tilt/telescope steering wheel, the bright pedals and the 18 speaker Harman sound system. This package has an MSRP of $2,495, so you save $95 off of the two individual packages.


2018 Dodge Demon buyers who want to spruce up the interior can add red seat belts for $195 while those buyers who want a unique exterior design can opt for the satin black hood or the satin black      graphics package. The satin black hood costs $1,995 while the satin black graphics package – which paints the hood, roof and deck lid the stylish satin black – costs $3,495.

Finally, the 2018 Dodge Challenger SRT Demon does come with a sunroof, but it might be the most expensive sunroof option that we have ever seen. The Demon sunroof adds $4,995, and while that price seems incredibly high, the fact that adding a sunroof to a drag car is so counter-intuitive has led FCA to price the sunroof considerably higher than the key go-fast options.

With all these options and groups, the tag is $97,273. That is the list price with literally every option, so as Tim Kuniskis promised when the car debuted back in April, the Demon is well below $100,000, even when fully loaded.

We still don’t know exactly how Dodge will handle the allocation of the 3,000 Demons in the US and the 300 Demons in Canada, but we now know how much the quickest production car in the history of the automobile will cost when it hits dealerships later this year. The company will begin taking orders this summer and deliveries will begin this fall.
