2018 Dodge Demon vs 2017 Challenger Hellcat

Serving Crestview, Niceville, and Defuniak Springs, FL

If you’ve got a need for speed, then there are very few choices that are better than the muscle car. In the past few years, the muscle car has really taken off, with Dodge producing updated versions of many of their classic muscle cars of years past. The Challenger series of Dodge vehicles have been produced since the 50s and the modern variations fully embrace the speed and muscle of the classics. Simply put, these cars are designed to deliver high-performance driving and have a pickup to spare.

The 2018 Dodge Demon and the 2017 Dodge Challenger Hellcat are two new variations of this modern muscle car and both have speed and style to spare. If you’re a horsepower-hungry driver, then you can’t go wrong with the Challenger Demon; it has a full 840 horses under its hood. On the other hand, the Hellcat is no slouch in the horsepower arena either; it boasts a full 707 horsepower and has a nice top speed of 199 mph as compared to the Demon’s slightly slower 190 mph.

Performance

When it comes to raw performance, both of these vehicles have excellent output. The Demon runs with a supercharged 6.2-liter V8 that is designed for speed and power; in fact, there are few vehicles that are more drag race-friendly. The Hellcat can also drag race with the best of them, its power profile is bolstered by a 6.2-liter V8 as well.

Pickup is very impressive for both muscle cars; The 2018 Demon can go from zero-to-60 mph in about 2.3 seconds, whereas the Hellcat can do the same in 3.6 seconds. Additionally, the Demon can clear a quarter mile of road in about 9.65 seconds at 140 mph, which is a spectacular feat. The Hellcat does slightly worse; it can cover the same amount of distance at 126 mph in around 11.7 seconds.

Appearance

Both of these cars are clearly derived from the overarching Challenger design. Present in both is the flat-grill design that harkens back to Challengers of the past. One of the chief differences in the appearances of these two cars is that the Demon is somewhat smaller. Dodge wanted to create a leaner machine with the Demon, so they cut several weightier components from its design. The resulting car is about 200 pounds lighter than the Hellcat; you can even remove the passenger seats from the Demon in order to cut some weight.

The front sections of each vehicle vary slightly. It’s clear that the DNA of the Challenger is there in both but the base of the grill section of the Hellcat has a protrusion that simply isn’t there in the Demon. The rear of both cars are virtually identical to each other; the middle is emblazoned with a large Dodge logo which is surrounded by the rear light assembly.

Safety

Admittedly, safety isn’t a major consideration for most muscle cars; in fact, the Demon is actually banned by the National Hot Rod Association, which is an actual point of pride for Dodge. That being said, there are safety features in both cars like airbags throughout the car. Both cars have advanced multistage driver and front passenger airbags that are designed to cushion impact. Additionally, both cars have active front head restraints and crumple zones to protect passengers from injury,

Both of these beautiful muscle cars are worth checking out. Each has plenty of horsepower to spare and the pickup of each is worthy of the muscle car legacy. Come on into the dealership to learn more and order yours today!
