Tonight is the night that the 2018 Dodge Challenger Demon gets revealed to the public at a launch event in New York City. But for the past 13 weeks we’ve been receiving teasers from Dodge about the new car, and we’re going to talk about some of them as we lead up to the launch.

The Demon’s thermal management needs to be pretty serious to handle multiple uses at the race track. Dodge has taken that into consideration, and in a first for a factory production car, the Demon will use the car’s air conditioner to keep the air intake cool. Using this system can reduce intake temperatures by 45 degrees Fahrenheit.

Check out the press release below and stay tuned for the official reveal at the New York Auto Show later tonight!

March 30, 2017 , Auburn Hills, Mich. – The 2018 Dodge Challenger SRT Demon has distinct cooling advantages – enough to make the engine perform like it is running in the cold Alaskan air, even after a day of runs down the strip on a hot summer day.

The newest teaser video, “No Ice,” unlocked March 30 at www.ifyouknowyouknow.com, reveals the Challenger SRT Demon’s super cooled air induction system.

The 2018 Dodge Challenger SRT Demon is the first-ever, factory production car with a liquid-to-air charge air cooler chiller system. This exclusive performance feature enables the Challenger SRT Demon to achieve charge air induction temperatures previously unattainable by pressure-charged street-legal production vehicles.

Conventional cooling methods consist of simply using air or coolant to reduce the air induction temperature as it is passed through the charge air cooler. When in Drag Mode, the Challenger SRT Demon interior air conditioning system is diverted to chill the engine’s charge air cooling system.

The result:

  • Up to 45 degree Fahrenheit reduction in intake air temperature

Fans should visit www.ifyouknowyouknow.com to watch “No Ice” and the other 2018 Dodge Challenger SRT Demon videos. Remember, nothing is a coincidence and everything means something.
