Dodge Unveils 1,025 HP 2023 Challenger SRT Demon 170

1,025 HP 2023 Challenger SRT Demon 170

Dodge has introduced the 1,025hp 2023 Dodge Challenger SRT Demon 170, the automaker’s seventh and final “Last Call” special-edition model. 

With its 945 lbs.-ft. (at 4,200 rpm) production HEMI engine, the Dodge Challenger SRT Demon 170 is designed to reach 60 mph in 1.66 seconds and feature the highest G-force acceleration of any production car at 2.004 gs.

The Challenger SRT Demon 170 is the quickest vehicle ever produced in the brand’s 100-plus-year history, according to Dodge, and also the first factory production car to run the quarter-mile in less than nine seconds with an NHRA-certified 8.91-second ET at 151.17 mph. On the drag strip, the Challenger SRT Demon 170 receives an NHRA violation letter for running a sub-nine-second quarter-mile without a safety cage or parachute, following in the footsteps of the original Demon, which was also banned from NHRA quarter-miles.

“To celebrate the end of the HEMI muscle car era, we pulled off all the governors to reach a new level, a new benchmark of ‘factory-crazy’ production car performance,” said Tim Kuniskis, Dodge brand CEO–Stellantis.
