Demon Upgrades Are Surprisingly Cheap
May 26th, 2017
The Demon being released is old news BUT Dodge has come out with the pricing and it’s surprisingly cheaper than most people thought with MSRP at $84,995, And get this…several of the options cost $1. For a car with 840 horsepower and 9.65-second quarter mile, that’s not bad.
So if you decide to beef up your SRT Demon from the stock version to get the Demon Crate you’ll have to shell out an additional 4 quarters, according to Road and Track. The Demon Crate is the package of options like the ECU upgrade that bumps up the horsepower from 808 to that 840 they talk about. You also get narrow front-runner drag wheels, unfortunately, with no tires included, a high-flow air filter, and all the tools you’ll need to switch your tires out when you get to the drag strip. Dodge says the Crate is valued at over $6,000 and even has your name, VIN, and serial number engraved on it. Other things you can add for $1 include a passenger seat, rear seats, or trunk liner.
Obviously other upgrades like leather and heated seats will cost you upwards of $1,000 but it’s not every day you can get options for a bargain, let alone $1. If you were already lining up for the Demon, would you drop the extra 5 bucks?
This Sunday at 9am there’s all new tech from the shops. In Truck Tech, the '89 Blazer gets stripped to bare metal for repair, and the SuperMax Silverado is treated to front suspension, fuel delivery upgrades, and performance brakes.
