As things heat up in the streets and on race tracks nationwide, there has been one dazzling and dangerous addition to the auto world that will continue to excite and tempt anyone with a true penchant for speed. The Dodge Challenger Demon is a supercharged, 6.2-liter with a HEMI V-8 and Powertrain, and it is constructed with aluminum alloy heads, as well as a revolutionary hemispherical combustion chamber. For output, you are looking at 840 bhp (626 KW) @ 6,300 RPM, 770 lb.-ft. @4,500 RPM, with Direct Connection Controller and unleaded 100 octane minimum fuel.
The cylinder heads on the demon are machined on dedicated Demon/Hellcat CNC creation stations, and the engine block is expertly deck plate honed to minimize bore distortion. Every single Demon and Hellcat engine is dyno tested for 42 minutes under a massive load up to 5,200 rpm, before being shipped for further assembly in Brampton, Ontario. There is a very high flow, low restriction inlet system, designed to deliver cool air into the supercharger on the Demon, and a very large 45.2 “ functional hood scoop opening as well as triple-inlet air box.
Speaking of keeping the Demon cool, the SRT Power Chiller redirects air conditioning refrigerant from cabin to chiller unit, and reduces charge air temperature by a whopping 18 degrees Fahrenheit. Here are some stats on the engine itself, which is the driving force behind the raw power and muscle behind the Demon’s ability to pick up quick off the line:
·Forged alloy steel crankshaft with revised balancing and 90.9 MM stroke
·Induction-hardened crank bearing surfaces
·Forged high-strength alloy pistons; 30-micron increased piston to bore clearance
·Connecting rods are powder forged, with revised ultra-high tensile fasteners
·Flow doubled on piston cooling oil jets
·Revised design valve springs
·33 percent increase in oiling for rocker tips as well as valve springs – cooling and lubrication
·Stability is improved with single-groove collets on valve stems
·Pressure of fuel injector is increased by 27 percent
·Oil pan and windage tray are optimized for high acceleration, and tested astutely up to 1.8 G
We're not going to deny that many people love to race in Atlanta, whether on or off the track, and the Demon V-8 has many amazing facts that make it so great. During a quarter-mile run, the Demon V-8 ingests 173 cubic feet of air. Just to give you an idea of how much that is, it's the lung capacity of 816 humans! 800 feet into a quarter-mile strut, the Demon would literally empty all of the air in the cabin of the Dodge Challenger SRT Demon – taking up 105 cubic feet. The cooling system in this very alluring beast hastily rejects 258 KW of heat at rated power, that would boil 1 quart of water at room temperature in 1.2 seconds. The heat rejected is equal to what 250 electric toasters would emit.
During each power stroke, piston and connecting rod are loaded with 11 sheer tons of force, which is equivalent to 5 2018 Demons themselves. The driveline sees 11,164 lb-ft of ring gear torque during launch, and this results in a total 1.8 g launch. More than 1 ton is transferred from front to rear wheels during launch, and this is one mean streak of a dragster from America's most recognizable and able performance brand. It is a very limited-edition machine, but we want you to come check it out on our floor, and see just how exciting it is. The heavier the dose of lead in your foot the better: this is an improvement on the Challenger's best assets that has been a long time coming.
There is now another great reason to enthusiastically own the 2017 Chrysler Pacifica Hybrid: The Greater Atlanta Automotive Media Association (GAAMA) honored the 2017 Chrysler Pacifica Hybrid with overall Best Family Car, and Best Technology Car. GAAMA Members evaluated various manufacturers’ vehicles, covering various categories for car buyers with families to keep in mind. Vehicles were scored after enjoying incredible vistas while driving scenic routes at the Lake Lanier Islands Resort, and Conference Center in Buford, GA.
The Chrysler Pacifica was named the Best 3-Row Family car, and the 2017 Dodge Ram 1500 won accolades as the Best Family Pickup Truck, the 2nd year in a row it has received this honor. Minivan functionality has never been better, and the Chrysler Pacifica offers incredibly bold styling, the best in technology, and functionality that you’ll enjoy even if you’re flying solo with a family in tow. The new model has been completely re-engineered, and has an incredibly modern method of delivering gasoline and hybrid powertrains to the minivan genre. More than 100 available safety and security features will put your mind at ease in a major way during your next drive, and you’ll have high-tech eyes on the road preventing any mishaps.
One thing we know that you’ll love about the Pacifica hybrid is that it truly takes the vehicle’s prowess a step further, with its innovative and advanced hybrid powertrain. It is the first vehicle in the minivan category that is electrified, and you can lay down a startling 84 MPG equivalent while in electric-only mode, and 33 miles with the use of all-electric range. From the Botanical Gardens to a fun night out catching the Braves, we are always going to be very proud of what a great time you can have in our city of Atlanta. Having a minivan that you can have complete confidence in when it comes to the long haul is key, and you don't want to spend summer with a vehicle that does not provide ample space or safety features.
Some of the things everyone here on our staff love about this car are the nicely-sculpted body, very cool LED lighting, and available 20-inch aluminum wheels, offering enhanced style and maneuverability. From luxurious Nappa leather trim to seating capability for 8 passengers, its ability to get you around in comfort will ease the commute so much, you'll hardly realize you're driving. It's no surprise that the Pacifica has the highest rating for safety in its class: attributes like the modern Forward Collision Warning with Active Braking provide you audible and visual warnings, as well as even applying the brakes if needed.
The available ParkSense Rear Park Assist system with stop is ingeniously created with sensors in the front and rear, that provide extra help with cues preventing you from backing right into an obstacle. Class Exclusive Parallel and Perpendicular Park Assist System team up to do the job of controlling the steering for you, while you follow on-screen direction for the positioning of gears, brakes, and the all-important rate of acceleration. When you come to pay us a visit at Landmark Dodge, make sure that you ask us about Adaptive Cruise Control: it uses sensors to maintain the safest distance between you and the vehicle in front of you, and is another reason why this minivan rocks in its many aspects of poised protection.
The sleek and characteristically low-slung appearance of the Pacifica was what really won the judges over, as well as the fact that there was an addition of a hybrid model within the product line. Spacious and quiet were two attributes that passengers and drivers really wanted to experience when driving a new minivan, and the fact that it once used to be an SUV is a high-selling point for those that love a vehicle capable of conquering the wild. The illustrious style and multiple tech features are what really puts the Pacifica in a high class among minivans on the market: this is an offering that the driver can use the latest gadgets for to their advantage. Also becoming a finalist for North American Utility Vehicle of the Year, it goes well beyond what most other minivans on the market offer: you'll love the built-in vacuum and awesome gas mileage.

One thing that really ups the ante as a cool feature is second-row seats that fold into the floor, and can also be moved to access the third row if a child's seat is added to your traveling mix. The plug-in hybrid model allows for 33-mile driving range, and the peace of mind that you are doing your part for a healthy and flourishing environment. This classy minivan comes equipped with a 287-horsepower V6 engine, and a driver's seat with awesome power to allow for the ultimate in adjustment.
The Uconnect infotainment system, 5-inch touch screen, voice command recognition, USB port, and six-speaker stereo are going to make the time you spend in the vehicle just that much better, and any long miles you tackle will be a pleasure with these amenities at your fingertips. Uconnect Access gives the driver the ability to unlock and start your car with your smartphone, a great feature for the times when you are in a big hurry.
