    Dodge's Creative Way Of Reducing Demon Markups

    Sign in to follow this  

      Mark up a Challenger Demon and you'll be pushed back to the end of line


    It goes without saying that whenever a hotly awaited vehicle comes out, some dealers will mark them up to make a bit of cash. Recently, a picture was floating around of a Honda Civic Type R with $25,000 markup. The upcoming Dodge Challenger SRT Demon is another model that is prime for a markup. But the brand is taking steps to prevent this.

    Today, the brand announced their plans on dealers ordering a Challenger Demon. To be eligible for ordering a demon, a dealer must have sold more than one Hellcat in the last year. From there, Dodge will calculate a dealer's allocation based on sales performance - 60 percent SRT Hellcat and 40 percent Charger and Challenger sales.

    Dealers will only be allowed to order as many Demons as they are allocated, which will disappoint some dealers as they have been taking deposits on the Demon.

    If a dealer is considering marking up their allotment of Demons, their orders will be pushed to back of the line. Those who sell at MSRP or lower will get priority scheduling, meaning the buyer could end up with a lower build number.

    “We know some dealers may be tempted to sell to the highest bidder, but we are encouraging them to leverage the Demon as a halo for both the brand and their dealership, to bring customers into their showrooms and see everything we have to offer.” said Tim Kuniskis, head of Dodge.

    Dodge Announces U.S. Dealer Allocation Plan for 840-horsepower Dodge Challenger SRT Demon

    Demon allocation process designed to build the Dodge brand halo; prioritizes orders that are at or below Manufacturer’s Suggested Retail Price (MSRP)

    • New Dodge Challenger SRT Demon starts at a U.S. Manufacturer’s Suggested Retail Price (MSRP) of $84,995 (including $1,700 gas guzzler tax, excluding $1,095 destination); Demon crate unleashes full power for $1
    • Demons sold at or below MSRP will receive priority scheduling resulting in lower serial numbers; Demons sold at a price that exceeds MSRP will be produced after priority production is completed
    • Dealers can only order as many Demons as they are allocated
    • New Demon Concierge hotline and website to provide direct communication for customers and dealers to track their order
    • U.S. dealers can start placing orders for the Demon on Wednesday, June 21
    • Production of limited-edition, serialized, single model-year (3,000 United States/300 Canada) Challenger SRT Demon begins later this summer; deliveries to Dodge//SRT dealers to begin this fall

    June 20, 2017 , Auburn Hills, Mich. - The limited-production, 840-horsepower Dodge Challenger SRT Demon – the fastest quarter-mile production car ever – is due to start arriving in dealerships this fall. Today, Dodge is announcing just how it will allocate these rare beasts to its dealer body.

    “We learned a lot when we launched the wildly popular SRT Hellcats,” said Tim Kuniskis, Head of Passenger Car Brands, Dodge, SRT, Chrysler and FIAT—FCA North America. “We’ve taken that information and created an allocation plan that is clear and concise, builds on Demon’s position as the Dodge//SRT halo and makes it easy for our customers to understand how they can put a Demon into their garage and, ultimately, out on the drag strip.”
     
    The Dodge Challenger SRT Demon is the first-ever production car to do a front-wheel lift, as certified by Guinness World Records, and it’s the world’s fastest quarter-mile production car with an elapsed time (ET) of 9.65 seconds at 140 miles per hour (mph), as certified by National Hot Rod Association (NHRA). It also registers the highest g-force (1.8 g) ever recorded at launch in a production car.
     
    “The 2018 Dodge Challenger Demon represents the best of what Dodge//SRT stands for – performance capabilities that are second to none, iconic styling and a heritage built on pushing the boundaries of what is possible at a price that is attainable,” Kuniskis added. “We know some dealers may be tempted to sell to the highest bidder, but we are encouraging them to leverage the Demon as a halo for both the brand and their dealership, to bring customers into their showrooms and see everything we have to offer.”

    The 2018 Dodge Challenger SRT Demon allocation plan is consistent with that philosophy. Here is how Demon will be allocated to dealers:

    • To be eligible to order a Challenger SRT Demon, dealers must have sold more than one SRT Hellcat in the last 12 months
    • Dealer allocation will be based on 60 percent SRT Hellcat and 40 percent Charger and Challenger sales performance
    • Dealers can only order as many Demons as they are allocated
    • Demons sold at or below MSRP will receive priority scheduling resulting in lower serial numbers
    • Demons sold for a price that exceeds MSRP will be produced after priority production is completed

    Dodge is also creating a new Demon Concierge hotline (800-998-1110) to provide direct communication for customers and dealers. A new website will also allow them to track their orders at www.dodge.com.
     
    To qualify as a verified sold order, an acknowledgement document must be completed and signed by the customer, the dealer and be notarized. The document must be received by the Demon Concierge before the vehicle will be slated for production. This important document serves two purposes:

    • Provides a detailed list of safety considerations, technical specifications and features on the vehicle; and
    • Helps determine priority production based on customer-facing contract price

    Dealers can start placing orders for the Demon on Wednesday, June 21. Production of the limited-edition, serialized, single model-year (3,000 United States/300 Canada) Challenger SRT Demon begins later this summer; deliveries to Dodge//SRT dealers to begin this fall.

    This wreaks of socialism (allocation based on sales performance) and Communism (profit limitations by trying to reduce Dealer mark-ups)

    This is nothing but a Liberal agenda!  Either that or this is Anti-American!

    I havent decided what route I should take with this rant but one thing is for sure...the Dodge Hellcat or Demon is the Anti-Christ!!!

    You have that as wrong my Canadian friend, the June frost has addled your brain as always in the great white uninhabited north.

    This smells of libertarian ism and anarchy, white hot rebellion against authority!

    Alas, my Canadian friend, your first girlfriend told me that you were like the new Demon in your prime...both of you were good for about 9 seconds of excitement and then it was all done...

     

    Even though this is a Canadian bird it is all about the red white and blue, baby!

    Your snake also has its mind addled by the great white north....it is trying to swallow the whole horizon at an astonishing rate of speed...

     

    Your priest is needed because the fool in the orange Mustang cries out for God after going 220 miles per hour at the Texas mile...

    A stock C7 Z06 will do about 170 or 175 at the Texas mile, so this snake puts about 50 miles per hour on that...

    Obviously there is some kind of divine spirit sent down by the gods of speed, because they blessed the snake with an additional 27 miles per hour at the big end...

     

    And Loki the god of confusion and chaos must be happy, as it is an American car running almost 294 miles per hour at the Texas mile...

    Meh. I can see both sides of it, honestly.

     

    Although, even it at MSRP, I couldn't fathom buying a Demon over one of these-

    That, A Cayman, or any number of other cars. 85K will also buy a truly nice 911....

    Well, I'm trying to limit my comparison to new cars that share at least a somewhat similar philosophy.

    A 2LT Z06 with a few options comes in right around the Demon's starting price. For a car with similar straight line ability with minimal investment, and way more performance in other areas.

    85 grand is a solid 10K away from a base 911, and there's no way I'd drop 85K on a Cayman. I'd save 10 grand and buy a loaded TT RS. Better straight line acceleration and power, more character, AWD, and all the handling I could ever want on the street.

    I wonder what the depreciation curve is on the TT RS vs the Cayman.  If you have any real world information I would be honestly curious.

    I kind of forget about the TT, but I really like it.

    Sorry, meant to type used 911....but I would gladly spend an additional ten grand to get a 911 over the Demon.

    Oh, I would too. I could easily build a 911 I'd be happy with out for about 110K all in. Figure in what you can actually buy that car for- ~7% off, and you're coming in a hair over 100 flat. 

     

    As for the TT RS, if the last car is anything to go buy, the RS will enjoy significantly better residual values down the road. Audi RS cars typically do well anyway, and TT should only be more so.

    To be fair, the Demon is kinda like a one-off specialty car.

    And cars like the Demon were offered in the 1960s by all three Detroit area car companies

    Like a 1964 Ford Fairlane Thunderbolt... only 100 were built, and all carried a disclaimer plate in the glovebox regarding the not-up-to-standard fit and finish of the fiberglass panels and plexi-glass windows.

    Or a 1963 Pontiac Catalina Super Duty... with its famous drilled “Swiss Cheese” frame that was ordered on 15 cars. Power came from a special dual-quad version of Pontiac’s 421-cubic-inch V-8 that was also likely underrated at 405 hp. The engine option cost nearly as much as the car itself. The usual assortment of aluminum and plexi-glass were also specified to further lighten the car....

    The Demon even mimics this as it only comes with 1 seat....(sure you could buy the other seats for 1 dollar each, but it IS marketed that it comes with ONLY the driver's seat)

    It is a great way to celebrate these factory drag cars that were once part of the American scene and for somebody that cherishes those times, this is the car for him/her for that price!

    Personally, a Demon is overkill for my tastes on so many levels starting with those fender flares and that giant air grabber hood. I prefer the Hellcat's more subdued look, if you could call the Hellcat more subdued. LOL!

    800 plus horsepower is also overkill. So is 707, but 707 was the original mind blowin' number and the Hellcat was the first cool demonic name and logo that the name and logo that is  Demon is just....overkill and passé.

    So yeah, Id forgo the Demon myself and would just get a Hellcat or Scatpack...

    Yeah, the Thunderbolt is a good analogy for the Demon.. the Challenger I'd like to have would be like this---SRT 392 Scat Pack.  One of the few cars I like in white.  The gray is great also, esp. w/ the red and black interior.   I'd really like one in a 70s olive green or brown, though..cue the wachika-wachika music..

    Im more of the "look at me"  colour combos when it comes to the sporty sports cars and regarding the  Challenger is no exception.

    Although white and gray do look good, and so does black on the Challenger, I want the cops to see me with their own eyes 5 miles away without the radar to issue me a speeding ticket.

    In other words, stealth is not what I look for in these types of cars....yes yes..a bit of an extrovert I am!!!

      I’ve driven my fair share of Challengers on both extremes - from the standard V6 to the high-performance SRT and Hellcat models. But I never had any time behind the wheel of the R/T with its 5.7 V8. That changed in the summer when a bright orange Charger R/T Shaker was dropped off for a week. This allowed me to ask a question that has been sitting in my head for some time: Is the R/T the best bang for your buck in the Challenger family?
      The Shaker sets itself apart from other Challenger models with the use of a ‘Shaker’ scoop that prominently pops up from the hood. There is also a blackout treatment on several trim pieces and wheels that make it look even more imposing on the road. Along with the scoop, the Shaker package does add a new cold-air intake seated right in front of the driver’s side corner. This addition should boost the output of the 5.7L HEMI V8 (372 horsepower and 400 pound-feet of torque when paired with the eight-speed automatic. But FCA’s spec sheet doesn’t say anything about the Shaker Package adding more oomph or not. When you first start up the R/T Shaker, it makes presence known with a deep and loud exhaust note. I had to do a double-take the first time as I was wondering if I was given either an R/T Scat Pack or a Hellcat by mistake. While it may lack the high power numbers of the 6.4 and supercharged 6.2 V8s, the 5.7 is no slouch. 60 mph comes in at just over five seconds and power is seemingly available at any speed. My tester came with the optional Performance Handling Group that adds upgraded springs, sway bars, and a set of Bilstein shocks. This does improve the handling by a fair amount with less body roll. But it doesn’t feel nimble due to a curb weight of around 4,158 pounds. The steering has a quick response, but there is a noticeable lack of road feedback. If you want your muscle car to have some handling, consider the Camaro or Mustang. Nothing new to report on the Challenger’s interior. It still has the angled center stack, retro-inspired gauges, and easy to use UConnect infotainment system. The seats are where the Challenger loses some points as it feels like you’re sitting on top of cinderblocks. The Shaker package is surprisingly good value, adding $2,500 to the base price of the R/T which begins at $34,295. But you’ll need to be careful on the option sheet, or you’ll end up with something quite expensive. My tester came with an as-tested price of $46,555, which is $300 more than an R/T Scat Pack Widebody with the 6.4 HEMI V8.  The Dodge Challenger is getting up there in age and sadly cannot compete with the likes of the Camaro and Mustang in terms of handling. But Dodge is still able to offer a lot of performance in the form of the R/T. With a potent V8 engine, old school styling, and different packages like the Shaker to make your Challenger stand out, the R/T is possibly the best value and well-rounded model in the lineup.

      The Dodge Caravan is one of the vehicles that helped saved Chrysler Corporation in the 1980s. Introduced in November 1983, the Caravan, along with the Plymouth Voyager, was based on the K-Car platform championed by Lee Iaccoca.  Chrysler recently re-introduced the Voyager under the Chrysler brand as the low cost entry into the minivan market. The Voyager is a low cost version of the Chrysler Pacifica Minivan that was introduced in 2016.  Dodge continued production of the Grand Caravan as the low-cost model while the Pacifica aims for higher end customers.
      The Voyager, starting at $26,958, will come in three trims, L, LX, and LXi, the last one reserved for fleet buyers. Chrysler has previously taken this two-prong approach of Voyager being the value option and Town & Country being the premium offering during the 2001 - 2007 time frame. Voyager production begins in August 2019 at Chrysler's Windsor Ontario plant and will run alongside the Grand Caravan for now.
      If you're looking for a Grand Caravan, you have some time left.  The Grand Caravan is scheduled to go out of production in May 2020.

    • Correct; 2.7L. Ram's V6 e-torque adds 12 HP and 39 TRQ. I added that much [15/35] to my old F-150 300 I-6 via a chip and I can attest from experience; you cannot discern that little of a power bump. Ie-Torque also ADDS 105 lbs, lessening the benefit. Besides, the Ram e-torque 3.6 still has less HP & TRQ than the Chevy 2.7T  [305/269 vs. 310/348]. Hell, the Ram is no better than the Chevy 4.3 V6 [285/305]. Know what I think? People should buy the 5.3L [355/383].
    • They have a 2.7L in a pickup.  I actually applaud the 310 hp from that engine and it makes more torque than the 3.6 V6.   They need more of that, but that engine should be hooked up to a mild hybrid system like how Ram has e-torque.
    • I can tell you that in Jersey, which has relatively low gas prices vs. other states, diesel has not been cheaper than gas since maybe '04. Prior to, it was historically cheaper. I know; I bought a diesel truck in '06 and I've logged every tank - diesel has not been cheaper than gas since...
