1972 Dodge Demon

For 1972 the Dodge Demon remained mostly unchanged, with only minor changes to the grille and an updated interior. Mechanically, the Demon complied with federal mandated safety and pollution requirements. The base engine was the 198 cubic-inch Slant Six with overhead valves and offering 100 horsepower. This engine had a reduction in power by 25HP over the prior year's 198 Slant Six. The Demon 340 featured the 340-cid V8 with overhead valves now rated at 240 horsepower. (The 1971 version had 275 HP).

The Demon name could be found on the ride side of the rear escutcheon panel and on the front fenders. Vehicles fitted with the six-cylinder engine had 6.45 x 14 black sidewall tires while the V8 cars had 6.95 x 14 black sidewall tires. The 340 Demons rode on E70-14 belted black sidewall tires and had a three-speed manual transmission. Other features given to the 340 Demon were performance bodyside and rear deck panel tape stripes, a Rallye suspension and a floor-mounted shifter.

Pricing began at $2,310 and rose to $2,760 for the 340 Coupe. Around 8,700 buyers selected the high-performance 340 Coupe, while 39,880 select the basic coupe version of the Demon.
