  • SRT Demon’s Power Chillier Wins Popular Science Award


October 18, 2017 – The SRT Power Chiller, a key component of the record-setting, 840-horsepower 2018 Dodge Challenger SRT Demon, is among Popular Science’s Best of What’s New for 2017.

The Best of What’s New awards honor the innovations that shape the future, from life-saving technology to incredible space engineering to gadgets that are just breathtakingly cool. Literally.

A production-car first, the SRT Power Chiller uses the car’s air conditioning refrigerant to help further cool the air entering the supercharged 6.2-liter HEMI® Demon V-8’s cylinders. Cooler air contains more oxygen molecules, helping the engine deliver its maximum output of 840 horsepower with 100+ high-octane unleaded fuel.

The 6.2-liter HEMI Demon V-8 uses a dedicated liquid circuit, separate from the engine cooling circuit, to cool air after it leaves the 2.7-liter supercharger.
