Dodge has opened orders for its monster 2023 Challenger SRT Demon 170. It will be the most powerful street legal muscle car ever mass-produced, with a staggering 1,025 horsepower and 945 lb.-ft. of torque. It was announced last week as the final “Last Call’ special-edition Challenger and Charger model. Dodge is closing the Brampton plant, in Canada, where they are built at the end of 2023. Now, the trick is finding one!
Dodge’s ‘Last Call’ Ordering Process
Dodge has devised what it is calling its Dodge Horsepower Locator tool and fans can find it at DodgeGarage.com. Once there, potential buyers are able to see exactly what Dodge PowerBrokers dealers have allocated to them. The vehicle must be ordered through a dealer. Fans can see where the Challenger SRT Demon 170 can be ordered, as well as the other ‘Last Call’ models. Customers must contact the dealer directly to discuss a potential order.
The sticker price for the 2023 Dodge Challenger SRT Demon 170 is $96,666 plus destination charges. However, many potential buyers are complaining online of dealers adding huge fees. Dodge says customer orders certified sold at MSRP (without markup) will receive priority scheduling, which should be an incentive to dealers.
All customer sold orders for Challenger SRT Demon and notarized customer acknowledgment letter must be received before May 15, 2023. The letter indicates that the buyer knows that the car is powerful and potentially dangerous in the wrong hands. The buyer also has to acknowledge that the vehicle will require special parts, in other words, it could be expensive to fix.
2023 Dodge Challenger SRT Demon 170 Limited Production
2023 Dodge Challenger SRT Demon 170 series production will be limited to not more than 3,300 total vehicles. Three thousand are being produced for the U.S. and three hundred for Canada. Dodge may not produce that many depending on ordering, production capacity and if they can get all of the necessary parts. Engine availability is a big factor.
Customers purchasing a Challenger SRT Demon 170 who document current ownership of an original 2018 Challenger SRT Demon will be offered the unique opportunity to match the last four digits of the VIN of their new Demon 170 with their original 2018 Demon when finalizing their order.
Customers can request to match the last four digits of their original Demon VIN, which also allows for the unique Demon instrument panel badging to match for each vehicle.
As with all new Dodge SRT vehicles, the purchase of a Dodge Challenger SRT Demon 170 allows owners to take part in a one-day SRT Experience class at Radford Racing School, the official high-performance driving school of Dodge//SRT. Additional information on the Radford Racing School is available at DodgeGarage.com.
