Dodge has kept its word. It has priced the drag strip-focused Dodge Challenger SRT Demon below $100,000. Its has also thrown in the option of picking the Demon Crate for $1.

Dodge has finally made that announcement which many of us had been waiting for with baited breaths. The Dodge Challenger SRT Demon has a price tag now and it starts at $86,090. That sum includes $1,700 in gas guzzler tax and $1,095 in destination charge. That’s a hefty premium over the $60,000+ sticker price of the Dodge Challenger SRT Hellcat. But with the kind of things that the SRT Demon can do and the kind of car that it is, the Demon’s $86k price tag is quite reasonable.

Now, we aren’t moving on to  list out how awesome the whole concept of SRT Demon is. We’ve done that with one post already. We also did make an update on Dodge’s earlier announcement on its plans to price the SRT Demon below $100,000. Plus, there was another post recently on why you shouldn’t let Dodge dealers take you for a ride when it comes to making a deposit. Too much of Dodge Demon coverage on Art of Gears, these days.

What more layers of good news came along with the price announcement made by FCA? The best piece is of course the one which lets the customer add on a couple of optional features at a trivial cost of $1 each.

The Dodge Challenger SRT Demon will be available in 15 colors. Not that it’s the most exciting thing about this creature.

Nope. That’s not a typo. Dodge is actually letting you have some of the “good-to-have” stuff at the aforementioned $1 charge for each. The front passenger seat, the rear seat in cloth or leather and the Demon trunk carpet kit are some of them. Essentially, the manufacturer is letting you have some of those things which they threw out of the car to make it lighter and more drag strip-focused.

But we saved the best for the last. That tempting Demon Crate – Dodge has made that a $1 option. While the other options may not seem that great to have, the Demon Crate is a must-have. Well, without it, there’s no point at all in buying the Dodge Challenger SRT Demon.

All the gear which you’ll need to make the SRT Demon that fire-breathing 840 hp track monster which you want it to be, are inside that box. The total value of the stuff in the box is placed at $6,140.

Should you desire to deck up your SRT Demon further, Dodge will be more than happy to add red seat belts, body graphics packs, painted black satin hood and interior/audio system trims like Leather Front Seat Group, Comfort Group and Comfort Audio Group. They’ll even integrate a sunroof on to the Demon. These are expensive options though, ranging from $195 for the red seat belts to $4,995 for the sunroof.

Dealers will start receiving cars this fall. Do heed our warning though and try not to let the dealers cash in on your excitement for the Demon.
