END OF TOUR: Dodge Charger Pursuit Gets Ready To Go “10-42”

Last Batches Of Dodge Charger Pursuits Are Making Their Way To Law Enforcement Agencies...

The 2023 Dodge Charger Pursuit, a staple in American law enforcement, is bidding farewell as it nears the end of production this December. In an era where patrol SUVs have taken over, the Pursuit sedan stands as one of the last remaining options for police fleets. Detroit’s major automakers have shifted their focus towards SUVs and light trucks, leaving most of their sedan offerings behind.

The Charger Pursuit, an adapted version of the consumer model, has been a reliable choice for law enforcement agencies across the country. It has kept pace with evolving needs, offering various features and technologies to aid officers in their duties.

Under the hood, the Pursuit comes with two engine options. The 3.6-liter Pentastar V6 with AWD provides versatility for urban and rural patrols with 300 horsepower and 264 lb.-ft. of torque. On the other hand, the 370 horsepower 5.7-liter HEMI® V8 RWD models excel in highway pursuits and high-speed intercepts.

Safety remains a paramount concern for police officers, and the 2023 Dodge Charger Pursuit doesn’t disappoint. It boasts ballistic door panels offering three-level protection, enhancing officer safety during city patrols. The vehicle’s steel safety frame construction absorbs energy during crashes, and front and rear crumple zones further reduce the risk of injuries.

Additional safety features include Secure Park and a ParkView Rear Back-Up Camera. These indirect safety measures contribute to making the Charger Pursuit a reliable choice for law enforcement.

Appearance plays a role in police work as well. The 2023 Dodge Charger Pursuit combines functionality with an intimidating design. It features bi-functional halogen projector headlamps, LED Daytime Running Lamps (DRLs), dual spotlights, a commanding front grille, and an aggressive stance, making it a formidable presence on the road.

Furthermore, the vehicle is purpose-built to accommodate police equipment, offering an extra-large trunk, spacious cabin, and unique seat bolstering for officers to carry their gear comfortably.

As the 2023 Dodge Charger Pursuit reaches the end of its production run, there’s anticipation about the next generation. Rumors suggest that the upcoming Charger model may offer both gasoline and all-electric powertrain options. This potential move could benefit the brand and offer both an environmentally friendly and cost-effective future for law enforcement agencies.

Does someone have a link to the % that use Chargers versus SUVs or other body styles? I still see them at the state and local level in abundance.

Depends where you live. Up north I suspect many have gone to SUV’s. I live north and the local police have all gone to SUV’s and trucks. Highway patrol has a mix of both but are moving more towards SUV’s
