Driving Matters for Dodge & Pennzoil Synthetics
There’s an arms race in the automotive industry. Manufacturers across the globe are stacking their chips to provide vehicles with cutting-edge technology that maximize efficiency and convenience to one day transform driving as we know it into a passenger-only experience with cars that can pilot themselves.
For the thrill of driving, Dodge bucked this trend to pursue a divergent goal – pure performance.
Introducing the Dodge Challenger SRT Demon.
“We wanted to make the ultimate quarter-mile racing car that was also fully street legal” said Chris Cowland, Director – Advanced and SRT Powertrain, FCA US LLC and one of the masterminds behind redefining American muscle.
With a supercharged 6.2-liter HEMI V8 that boasts 840 horsepower, 770 lb-ft of torque and clocking in at 2.3 seconds going from 0-60, the Dodge Challenger SRT Demon isn’t just the king of the quarter-mile – it’s the fastest and most powerful production vehicle ever assembled.
Pennzoil Synthetics played a key role in turning the vision of unprecedented power into a reality.
“We obviously do a lot of validation work to test the reliability and durability of the engine” Cowland expressed. “All of those tests are done with Pennzoil Synthetics, the exact same oil we use in our factory-fill.”
In our latest Pennzoil Film, Exorcising the Demon, we took the Dodge Challenger SRT Demon to the streets of Pittsburgh for a performance test of our own. Surrounded by steel and iron, this car proved to be a behind-the-wheel experience unlike any other for precision driver Rhys Millen.
“When you’re dealing with how extreme this engine is, you have to have a product that equals the performance of what this car’s capabilities are. Pennzoil Synthetics match that grade.”
Performance is the driving force behind everything we do, because we believe there’s a direct relationship between the RPM in your engine and the BPM in your chest. By powering the defiant roar of the Dodge Demon, we’re proud to keep the dream of automotive exhilaration alive and well.
