At last, Canadian Demon prices

by Patrick Rall on

Dealerships around Canada have officially started taking orders for the 2018 Dodge Challenger SRT Demon; and with orders comes official pricing.

Surprisingly, some options cost less in Canada, but when you factor in the currency conversion rate, the Demon has a very similar price in Canada and the USA.

In the US, the 2018 Dodge Challenger SRT Demon has a base MSRP of US$83,295. In Canada, the Demon has an MSRP of C$109,995, but when factoring in the current conversion rate, the Demon in Canada has an MSRP of US$84,706.

On top of the base price, the 2018 Demon in Canada is saddled with a C$2,495 destination fee, a C$1,000 “Federal Green Levy” (read: Canadian Gas Guzzler Tax) and a C$100 Air Condition fee for a total base MSRP of C$113,590, which converts to $87,475 in US dollars.

Compare that to the total base MSRP of the Demon in the US of $86,090, and Canadian Demon buyers will pay around $1,400 more for their car than American buyers.

Canadian Demon Option Pricing

The 2018 Dodge Challenger SRT Demon will have the same options in Canada that it does in the US, but the pricing varies a bit from one country to the other.

First of all, Canadian Demon buyers can add the cloth front seat, the cloth rear seat, the trunk carpeting package and the Demon crate for $1 each, just like US buyers. However, with the current conversion rate, Canadian buyers are only paying 77 cents in US dollars, so those options are technically less expensive in Canada.

The Demon’s Comfort Audio Group with cloth seats in Canada costs $1,695, the Leather front seat group costs $2,700 and the Comfort Audio Group with Leather – which effectively combines the Comfort Audio and Leather front seating package for a total price of $4,500.

By comparison, the Comfort Audio/cloth package in the US costs $995, the leather front seat package costs $1,595 and the Comfort Audio with Leather package in the US costs $2,495, so Canadian buyers are paying more for the premium seating and sound system upgrades.

The Demon’s red seat belts in Canada cost $125, the Satin Black hood costs $1,500 and the full Satin Black Graphics package costs $5,200, so while the seat belts cost a bit less in Canada – the black exterior bits cost more up North.

Finally, the 2018 Dodge Challenger SRT Demon is offered with a power sunroof that costs $4,995 in the US, leading me to dub it the “golden sunroof,” In Canada, the sunroof only adds $1,425 to the bottom line, or $1,097 USD, so Canadian buyers are paying far less for the sunroof.

2018 Demon (Canadian)

When a Canadian buyer opts for the top of the line features, such as the Comfort Audio Group with Leather, the power sunroof, the red seat belts, the full Satin Black Graphics, the trunk carpeting, and the Demon crate, the world’s quickest car has an out-the-door price (including taxes and destination) of $124,842. Based on the current conversion rates, the Demon in Canada will cost buyers $96,140, whereas a fully optioned Demon in the US has an MSRP of $97,273, so the Canadian Demon is technically less expensive than the American Demon.

A big part of that Canadian pricing advantage is the huge difference in the price of the power sunroof; when you remove that from both vehicles, the American Demon ends up at US$92,278 where the Canadian sunroof-less Demon costs C$123,417, or US$95,042.

Again, this information has surfaced because FCA Canada has begun taking orders for the 2018 Dodge Challenger SRT Demon; so if you live in Canada and you want to take a shot at getting one of the 300 Demons to be sold there, visit your dealership as soon as possible.
