AutoComplete: Dodge's Challenger SRT Demon gets pricedPlus: Hyundai mulls a high-performance N SUV, and Subaru ponders electrification.
Here's what's making news on Road Show. After we learned how many horsepower the Dodge Demon SRT has, 840, and learned how quick it was, zero to 60 in 2.3, and the quarter mile in 9.65, the only big question remaining was, How much? The answer? $84,995 plus delivery. That might seem like a lot for a Dodge, but it's a screaming deal for its record-setting performance. Better still, a bunch of the tastiest options are priced like the came off a McDonald's value menu. You can buy the demon crate filled with performance parts and tools, as well as a passenger or rear seat all for a dollar each. I'm loving it. Hyundai has been readying a new high performance and sub brand for a few years now, and it's expected the first production will be based on Europe's I 30, a car we know as the Launcher GT. While it's unclear if the hot hatch will come to the US, we're as interested to learn about other N plans. According to a new report, that's likely to include a hopped-up version of Hyundai's Tucson, which would make it something of a novelty among compact crossovers. With SUV sales on fire worldwide, we wouldn't be surprised if this one turns out to be true. Subaru has enjoyed record sales for many years but it hasn't been because of its green offering along with Mazda the police brand has been among the most reluctant Asian automakers to get into electrification when it has as with a short-lived Crosstrek Hybrid consumers have largely stayed away But now, Bloomberg is reporting Subaru is finally getting serious about battery power. Apparently, a plug-in hybrid is set to go on sale next year, a pure electric will arrive in 2021, and other models and maybe even a partnership, are on the table.
