The 2018 Dodge Demon is dead. Long live the demon.
On Thursday, Dodge unveiled the revised 2019 Challenger lineup, and it now contains what can only be described as the demon's spawn: the 2019 Dodge Challenger SRT Hellcat Redeye.
With 797 hp and 707 pound-feet of torque pulsating from a supercharged 6.2-liter V-8 engine to the rear wheels through an 8-speed automatic transmission, the Hellcat Redeye inherits a long list of for the 2018-developed parts.
This makes sense, as many are wondering why Dodge would spend so much time and resources on the Demon's design effort for just 3,330 units.

The standard Hellcat's 6,200 RPM Redline will be upgraded to the Demon's 6,500 RPM Redline, and two Demon Demon dual-stage tanks will help the Hellcat Redeye find the top-notch 93-octane.
Other Demon bits ported to the Hellcat Redeye were 41-spline half-waves (increasing torque capacity by 20 percent) and high-strength steel shafts (15 percent more torque)
While the Hellcat Redeye comes standard with a high-stall Torque converter is delivered 18 percent more torque multiplication and 11 percent faster stall speed) and a 2.62: 1 axle ratio, the Demon 3.09: 1 is an available option.
All the electronic wizardry from the Demon to quickly pull off the line while pulling The strip was also ported for the most part, including Launch Control, Launch Assist, Line Lock and Torque Reserve. There's also the Power Chiller and the After-Run Chiller to cool things down on the Drag Strip.
What does the Hellcat Redey tell the demon? It's a short list, but it's enough to let demon owners know that they still have something special. The 18-inch Demon wheels with the 315/40 drag radials are missing (Hellcat Redeye Sports 20-inch wheels with 305/35 tires), as well as the specific weight-changing suspension mode. The smaller, lighter 14.2-inch front-wheel brakes for off-road use are not fitted (the Hellcat Redeye carries Brembo's 15.4-inch stoppers forward), and a rear seat comes standard (though it can be removed).
While pricing is not yet firm, a Dodge spokesman said Motor Authority The 2019 Dodge Challenger Hellcat Redye will start from about $ 70,000 when it goes on sale later this year, which is significantly less than The Demon's $ 86,090 Sticker Price
The biggest difference between the Hellcat Redeye and the Demon is that the Redeye is not limited.
