The 2018 Dodge Demon is the company's next big thing. It is scheduled to become official in just a matter of days at the New York Auto Show. Dodge is even leading the buildup of enthusiasm by releasing staggered information about the 2018 Demon vehicle week after week before the debut. The specificities are still uncertain at this point but there have already been a number of leaks about the supercar out in the open.

Dodge has actually already promised that the 2018 Demon car will raise the bar when it comes to power and speed. So although nothing is confirmed at this point and time, it is already believed that the vehicle will have more grunt than the Hellcat with 707 horsepower. As per Digital Trends' report, the 2018 Dodge Demon will be a supercharged 6.2 liter V8 with automatic transmission.

Additionally, the new feature called TransBrake is also expected in Dodge's new creation. What this technology does is it locks up the output shaft of the transmission so the car remains stationary while the engine revs. This will allow for brake-free launches for up to 2,350 rpm.

Moreover, the 2018 Dodge Demon will burn 91 octane fuel in normal driving. However, it can also be configured for 100 octane gasoline and higher to achieve more power and an uber-fast quarter mile times. It's worth noting though that other gas stations may not offer high octane fuel. Nevertheless, Dodge says that although rare, owners can also find some in the select gas station, drag strips and specialty shops.

It's also worth noting that using high octane fuel should require a swapping out of the PCM or powertrain control module. The owner should also install the switches on the center console. Nevertheless, these parts are included in the 2018 Dodge Demon. One good thing about this car is that mixing fuels will not do damage to the V8. However, the high octane mode will not engage if the sensors can detect that the combined fuel octane is insufficient.

As for the visual appeal of the 2018 Dodge Demon, there are a number of improvements that the company has brought in. For one, the steering system has been upgraded. There are also bigger Brembo brakes on both axles. Moreover, the 2018 Dodge Demon also has wider 18-inch wheels that were wrapped in Nitto tires.
