Did Vin Diesel Just ‘Accidentally’ Reveal the Dodge Challenger Demon?
Jan 19, 2017

Vin Diesel facebook video Fast and Furious 8

Dodge has been very secretive about the upcoming Dodge Challenger SRT Demon, but it looks like it won’t be a mystery for much longer.

The American automaker is slowly releasing information about the upcoming Challenger Demon and has revealed that the muscle car will be around 200 pounds lighter than the current Hellcat offering. The teaser video Dodge released also showed off small changes heading to the car, like new wheels, suspension, brakes, interior and more.

A video has been published on YouTube that shows Vin Diesel talking about the upcoming movie The Fate of the Furious and it appears that a pair of Dodge Challenger SRT Demons are sitting in the background. At first glance, they look like typical Fast and the Furious movie cars, with large wheels, matte accents, and huge hood scoops. But at a closer glance, the emblem on the fender isn’t a Hellcat one, hinting that it might be the Demon. The aggressive new look also shadows the Challenger in the teaser released earlier.

This isn’t any sort of confirmation that the Demon will be used in the movie, but it sure looks like that is the case. It will be a few more weeks before Dodge spills all the details on the model, but for now at least we might have a better look at what to expect.

Dodge, which has been a part of the Fast & Furious franchise since its inception, announced today a promotional partnership with Universal Pictures for The Fate of the Furious, in which Vin Diesel is joined by a returning all-star cast. The Fate of the Furious arrives in theaters on April 14.

In support of The Fate of the Furious, Dodge is launching a multitier marketing campaign, including television ads, social media and digital extensions, and licensed products. The co-branded campaign promotes the blockbuster Fast & Furious franchise and Dodge//SRT, the mainstream and ultimate performance brands of FCA US. Dodge and SRT Chargers and Challengers, the world’s fastest and most powerful muscle cars, are prominently featured in the upcoming movie.

“Fast Dodge cars, adrenaline-filled action and family have fueled the Fast & Furious franchise from the beginning,” said Tim Kuniskis, Head of Passenger Car Brands – Dodge, SRT, Chrysler and FIAT, FCA-North America. “For more than 15 years, the Fast & Furious series has showcased some of the world’s most iconic and significant performance vehicles, and The Fate of the Furious will continue this tradition.”

“The world of Fast & Furious is inextricably linked to our partners at Dodge,” added David O’Connor, Executive Vice President of Global Franchise Management and Brand Strategy, Universal Pictures. “Time and again, they have proven their commitment to ensuring that the cars are just as beloved characters as the family members who form the heart of the series.”

'Muscle Heaven' Television Spots
Dodge created new television commercials to promote The Fate of the Furious, including national, dealer and multicultural spots. All ads feature clips from the movie, seamlessly blended with new scenes of Dodge’s and SRT’s ultimate performance vehicles. The first ads begin airing Friday, March 3.

The 30-second national “Muscle Heaven” spot primarily features the 2017 Dodge Challenger. Dealer versions of the ads include one spot for the Dodge Charger and Challenger, and another for the Dodge Durango and Journey.

The spots will air on network programming, including primetime, late night, morning news, sports, and NASCAR, as well as cable entertainment and sports programs. They were created in partnership with Austin, Texas-based GSD&M.

A Spanish-language co-branded “Muscle Heaven” spot has also been created and will run in key Hispanic markets. The ad was created in partnership with the Houston-based Lopez Negrete agency.

Licensed Products

Dodge//SRT brand vehicles, most notably the Dodge Charger and Dodge Challenger, are featured in The Fate of the Furious licensed products. These include various sizes and packs of die-cast and remote control vehicles from Mattel and Jada Toys, many of which are already available in retail stores. Additional upcoming products include the Racing Rivals mobile racing game from Glu Mobile.

About The Fate of the Furious

On the heels of 2015’s Furious 7, one of the fastest movies to reach $1 billion worldwide in box-office history and the sixth-biggest global title of all time, comes the newest chapter in one of the most popular and enduring motion-picture serials of all time: The Fate of the Furious.

Now that Dom and Letty are on their honeymoon and Brian and Mia have retired from the game – and the rest of the crew has been exonerated – the globetrotting team has found a semblance of a normal life. But when a mysterious woman (Oscar® winner Charlize Theron) seduces Dom into the world of crime he can’t seem to escape and a betrayal of those closest to him, they will face trials that will test them as never before.

From the shores of Cuba and the streets of New York City to the icy plains off the arctic Barents Sea, our elite force will crisscross the globe to stop an anarchist from unleashing chaos on the world’s stage … and to bring home the man who made them a family.

For The Fate of the Furious, Vin Diesel is joined by a returning all-star cast that includes Dwayne Johnson, Jason Statham, Michelle Rodriguez, Tyrese Gibson, Chris “Ludacris” Bridges, Nathalie Emmanuel, Elsa Pataky and Kurt Russell. In addition to Theron, the series welcomes newcomers Scott Eastwood and Oscar winner Helen Mirren. The film is directed by F. Gary Gray (Straight Outta Compton) and produced by returning producers Neal H. Moritz, Michael Fottrell and Diesel.
