In 1971, Dodge named its style of the Plymouth Duster the “Demon.” As was Mopar custom within the late 1960s along with early 1970s, whimsical typography along which has a cartoon mascot—in This particular case, a mischievous li’l devil whose pitchfork formed the “m” within the vehicle’s name—ruled the day. As cutesy as the idea was, some pious folks weren’t pleased with the more Satanic implications of the name, along with for 1973, the Demon name was replaced by the more staid “Dart Sport.” Forty-plus years later, after the success of the vaguely Beelzebubbian Hellcat badge, FCA has revived the Demon nameplate for what the idea terms “Dodge’s brand-new ultimate performance halo.” Welcome, then, the rumored Challenger formerly known as ADR, set to debut in April at the brand-new York auto show.
Unlike the old Demon, which was a sporting style of an economy style, the brand-new Demon will serve as the top machine in Dodge’s lineup right now of which the Viper can be heading off to of which great snake pit within the sky. Set to feature wider bodywork, the Demon can be likely to boast a few different surprises along with may be more track-oriented than the boulevard bruiser Hellcat. So far, signs point to the 707-hp supercharged 6.2-liter V-8 carrying over unchanged within the transition through hellfeline to hellperson.
