The 2021 Dodge Challenger Super Stock is practically a baby Demon. The Super Stock may be 33 hp down on the limited edition Demon, but it gets many of its features and the all important drag radial tires. Because of all the similarities, it’s easy to think some owners will try to convert their Super Stocks into Demons. Not a chance, said Dodge CEO Tim Kuniskis in an interview with Motor Authority.
Kuniskis, who once told us that the Demon isn’t coming back, reiterated that fact in the interview. The FCA executive also owns one of the 3,299 Dodge Demon muscle cars built, and knew that other owners would also deliver a lot of smoke towards Dodge’s way should either more Demons get built, or should they incentivize customers to build Demon clones, per se.
But Dodge will still sell Demon parts to Demon owners, and these are the key items that differentiate the Demon from the Challenger Super Stock. They include the skinny front tires, trans brake, hood, and some suspension parts. These components will only be available for Demon owners to buy. In fact, you can only purchase them if you provide Dodge with a Demon VIN number.
While the Dodge Challenger Super Stock will still blitz the quarter mile in a crazy 10.5 seconds, that’s close to a second slower than the Demon’s 9.65 second run. Kuniskis told Motor Authority the Super Stock is about, “15-20 percent of the way between a Hellcat Redeye and a Demon.”
One of the biggest differences most people would gloss over are the suspension changes. The Demon’s rear suspension is engineered to allow for maximum weight transfer to the rear, increasing traction. The Super Stock has a more traditional setup with less weight transfer at launch, hence the fact it can’t pull wheelies.
With the announcement of the Challenger Super Stock and Charger Hellcat Redeye, Dodge has the four most powerful production muscle cars in history, with the other two being the Demon and Challenger Redeye.
