Dodge announces 2020 Challenger SRT Super Stock pricing
Dodge has finally settled on the MSRP for its 2020 Challenger SRT Super Stock, a track-focused drag package that offers many of the Demon’s speed parts to the masses. Unlike the Demon, which was limited to 3300 units, the Super Stock will be available to anyone with $79,595 in their budget—or, to be precise, a smidge over $81,000 with an estimated destination charge of $1495 (based on current figures).
The Demon-lite stands as proof that trickle-down economics thrive in Dodge’s lineup of brute-force coupes, sharing the Redeye’s 6.2-liter V-8 that benefits from the larger blower, freon-assisted A2W intercooling system, fortified rotating assembly, and high-flow fuel system of the Demon. A 10-horse bump in power thanks to a recalibrated ECU brings total output to 807 hp, which is split through the eight-speed 8HP90 ZF transmission (complete with trans-brake) ahead of a 3.09 gear set. To handle the extra abuse on track, the Super Stock also benefits from the Demon’s beefier 41-spline half shafts and various launch control modes to meter torque to the 315/40R18 Nitto NT05R drag radials. You’ll have to buy your own skinnies, however; Dodge won’t sell a drag-spec front-runner wheel and tire package for the Super Stock like it did for the Demon in that $1 crate.
All of this tech stacks up to a 10.5 second quarter-mile at 131 mph, and a 0–60 sprint of 3.25 seconds—bonkers for a four-seat coupe with a curb weight of over 4000 pounds, but this sort of performance is what we’ve come to love about Dodge. The Super Stock sits roughly $5000 below the MRSP of 2018’s limited-production Demon, and roughly $1000 above a standard Challenger Redeye with the optional wide-body, making the Demon-inspired Super Stock a helluva deal.
