Another video teasing the 2018 Dodge Challenger SRT Demon has been released, titled "Reduction". The video is in support of Dodge's confirmation of the Demon being more than 200 pounds lighter than the Hellcat.

The 2018 Dodge Challenger SRT Demon.  According to Dodge, the Demon will be its halo car, expected to appeal to old and new customers alike. Speculations say that the Demon will overshadow its sibling, the Hellcat, although Dodge has not released any specs and details to fully confirm this.

The first video teasing the Demon, title "Cage" was released a week ago and features a large feline robot made out of what appears to be car parts. The feline robot, which is supposedly the Hellcat eventually bursts leaving a demon in the wake of its explosion.

The new video, Reduction, has the Demon drive into a large weighing scale. Nothing much is seen of the Demon except for its silhouette. Each of its parts start flashing like it would on a computer simulation starting with the wheels and ending with its engine. A digital weighing scale indicates a slow decrease in weight after every flash. It then ends with the line, "Domestic. Not Domesticated."

Reduction hints at what Dodge will be offering with the Demon. Subtle visuals indicate adjustments in the suspension, wheels, interior, and breaks, among others. One particular thing noticed are the rear wheels of the Demon looking a lot wider than the Hellcat's 20-by-9.5-inch alloy wheels. The bulge on the Demon's hood could also indicate a much larger and more powerful engine.

Nothing else is known about the 2018 Dodge Challenger SRT Demon except for it weighing much lesser than the Hellcat. Dodge is withholding details until the 2017 Auto Show in New York this April. Watch the new video teasing the 2018 Dodge Challenger SRT Demon below.
