AU­TOS: Chrysler de­liv­ers Dodge Demons to deal­ers

Milwaukee Journal Sentinel - - BUSINESS -

Fiat Chrysler Au­to­mo­biles has be­gun ship­ping the first 2018 Dodge Chal­lenger SRT Demons to deal­ers, the au­tomaker says. The lim­ited-pro­duc­tion, 6.2-liter Hemi V-8 en­gine de­liv­ers 840 horse­power. Dodge is tout­ing the mega-mus­cle car as the in­dus­try’s first street-le­gal pro­duc­tion drag car. But it has drawn its crit­ics. Au­to­mo­tive News, the lead­ing trade pub­li­ca­tion cov­er­ing the auto in­dus­try, called for ban­ning the De­mon from the street in an edi­to­rial last April. Dur­ing tests, the De­mon cov­ered a quar­ter-mile in 9.65 sec­onds at 140 mph, and it ac­cel­er­ates from zero to 60 mph in 2.3 sec­onds. From Jour­nal Sen­tinel and As­so­ci­ated Press re­ports
