When Dodge reintroduced the Dodge Challenger in the 2008 model year, the automaker immediately stuffed big, shouty V8s into its new muscle car. The LX platform Challenger rapidly held a position of reverence in modern muscle. Despite the incredible history of the car and LX platform vehicles like the Challenger SRT8, the four fastest Challengers are SRT products of the last five years. Here are the fastest Dodge Challengers ranked, like the venerable Jailbreak, Demon, and Redeye Widebody. 

  • 2023 Dodge Challenger SRT Demon 170– 1.66 seconds
  • 2018 Dodge Challenger SRT Demon– 2.3 seconds
  • 2022 Dodge Challenger SRT Hellcat Super Stock– 3.25 seconds
  • 2022 Dodge Challenger SRT Jailbreak– 3.4 seconds
  • 2021-2022 Dodge Challenger SRT Redeye Widebody– 3.4 seconds

Which Dodge Challenger is the most powerful?

Dodge unveiled the most powerful production muscle car ever this year: the 2023 Dodge Challenger SRT Demon 170. The automaker says the 1,025-horsepower Demon model will hit 60 mph in just 1.66 seconds on its way to an 8.9-second quarter-mile on a prepped surface.

As a result, the Demon 170 is the fastest-accelerating muscle car ever. Moreover, the Demon 170’s stratospheric power and new nameplate are courtesy of the model’s cocktail of choice: a 170-proof ethanol blend.

How powerful is the 2018 Dodge Demon?

Dodge released the 2023 Challenger SRT Demon 170 and dethroned its previous undisputed king of the hill, the limited-release 2018 SRT Demon. The original Demon made 808 horsepower from the factory, but it came with a very special $1 crate. Set everything up right, run the Demon on high-octane race fuel, and it’ll make 840 horsepower. 

Even more impressive than the wheelies that the Demon could pull off is the 2.3-second blast to 60 mph. With speed like that, the SRT Demon is the quickest factory muscle car ever made. 

What is the fastest new Dodge Challenger?

The fastest 2022 Dodge Challenger is the SRT Hellcat Super Stock. Many enthusiasts describe the Super Stock as a sort of “diet Demon” with 807 horsepower. That’s one horsepower less than the Demon on pump gasoline. Also, Car and Driver says that the Super Stock packs the same 315-section-width Nitto NT05R drag radial tires that the Demon did.

So how fast is it? With its tuned adaptive suspension and massive horsepower, the Super Stock will fly to sixty in just 3.25 seconds. Also, if you take it to the drag strip with its sticky tires and prepped surface, you can expect a blistering quarter-mile time of around 10.5 seconds. 

How fast does a Dodge SRT Jailbreak go?

The Dodge Challenger SRT Jailbreak will dash to 60 mph in just 3.4 seconds. First, the SRT Jailbreak adds ten horsepower to the already insane SRT Redeye Widebody. As a result, the Jailbreak will make 807 horsepower, just like the drag strip-tuned Super Stock. In addition to the raw power of the Jailbreak, fans could pair previously inaccessible paint and interior options.

How fast is an SRT Hellcat Redeye Widebody?

The Dodge Challenger SRT Hellcat Redeye Widebody will smash a 60 mph run in just 3.4 seconds, according to KBB. There are a few reasons why the Redeye Widebody outruns its standard Hellcat cousin. First, the Redeye Widebody makes an immense 797 horsepower compared to the Hellcat’s 717. Also, the widebody platform accommodates meatier tires with a bigger contact patch for hard launches.

Which one of the fastest Dodge Challengers should you buy?

If you’re in the market for a blacktop-bashing Mopar muscle car, the Hellcat changed the name of the game. From this list, the SRT Demon is the quickest but nearly impossible to find. If you want a drag-strip contender to scratch that Demon itch, consider the Super Stock. However, consider a Redeye Widebody if you want a wild road car.
