The Dodge Demon Will Give You Way More Performance Data Than You Actually Need

So we have yet another Dodge Demon teaser video. Is anyone else getting sick of the constant teasing? The new video features the SRT Performance Pages within the driver-focused Uconnect system. This system is run through the 8.4-inch touchscreen in the center console instrument panel.

Here’s what it will look like.

Performance Readouts Aplenty

The Performance Pages display, in real-time, an absolute metric shit ton of data including engine horsepower and torque. In addition, the system can display supercharger intercooler coolant temperature, engine oil pressure, and overall temperature. It also displays coolant, transmission fluid, intake air temp, air-fuel ratio, boost pressure, and battery voltage. All this data is displayed in real-time and can be recorded to the onboard data recorder.

But wait! There’s more. The system will also clock your reaction time, 0-60 mph, 0-100 mph, eighth-mile and quarter-mile elapsed time, and vehicle speed. Basically all functions hardcore racers want, but the average person will find cool for about 30 seconds and then never think about again.

The system also gives the driver the ability to pick and choose their own performance options. There are 2 main options: Auto Mode and Drag Mode. There is a 3rd option labeled “Custom” that gives the driver the option to choose between Auto and Drag mode functions to suit their needs.

Auto (Street) Mode options:

  • Multiple levels of engine performance
  • Three levels of suspension “feel and response”
  • Three levels of steering “feel and response”

Drag Mode options:

  • Multiple levels of engine performance
  • One level of transmission shifting “speed and firmness”
  • One level of traction control
  • One level of suspension “feel and response”
  • One level of steering “feel and response”

Custom Mode options:

  • Allows the driver to pick and choose any combination of Auto (street) and Drag options they want.

This is all excellent and I have zero doubt the Demon will be off its face insane. With a 0-60 mph time in 3 seconds, and 0-100 mph in 6.8 seconds, this thing is packing some serious horsepower. One of the screens show a possible horsepower figure well above 700, but not quite 800. Maybe 757 as noted by the time on the interface clock? There is absolutely no doubt that the Demon is going to be an absolute beast on the  street and track. But Dodge, lets stop this teaser shit. All this stuff has me bored with the Demon and it hasn’t even been launched yet.

Here are some screen grabs from the video above displaying some of the Demon’s Uconnect features.
