Since its release, the Dodge Challenger SRT Demon has been a force to be reckoned with. I mean, the car does a quarter mile in 9.65 seconds going 140 mph, so the automakers bragging is totally justified. The Demon recently went head-to-head with a Corvette ZR1 at Richmond Dragway (reported by Dragzine), and apparently, the Demon has finally met its match. The Dodge was defeated by the supercharged 755-hp Corvette ZR1. Don’t believe us? Watch the race for yourself, right here. Enjoy.

By now you’re probably aware that Dodge loves to tease us about its upcoming releases. Last week the automaker dangled a modified Challenger right in front of us. The 2019 Challenger won’t be all new, but it will have a decent amount of upgrades, including a dual-snorkel hood. A drag package might also be an option, which would raise power from 700-hp to 725-hp. Worth it.
Along side the Challenger will be the 2019 Charger. Little is known about this upgrade, considering Dodge has only released one image of the car’s new front fascia. The company said it is “doubling down with upgrades inside and out for the 2019 model year.” Both cars will debut this summer, so stay tuned for more details. Until then, enjoy these teaser images, compliments of Dodge.
Aside from autonomous driving, electrification seems to be a hot topic among automaker’s and car enthusiasts. In Ford’s first quarter financial report, the Blue Oval dropped a few hints regarding plans to electrify its lineup of SUVs, trucks, and the Mustang. It’s likely that we’ll see hybrid, and potentially fully electric variants of the F-150, Escape, Explorer, Bronco, and the Mustang. The report reads, “Making a full commitment to new propulsion choices, including adding hybrid-electric powertrains to high-volume, profitable vehicles like the F-150, Mustang, Explorer, Escape and Bronco.”
The electric rollout begins 2020, and will bring 16 battery-electric vehicles to market by 2022. The first electric ride of the lineup won’t arrive till 2020, but it’s expected to be a Mustang-inspired performance utility vehicle. More to come.
