2015 Dodge Charger Pursuit Gets More Aggressive
Law enforcement is largely about intimidating people into behaving well. With that in mind, the 2015 Dodge Charger Pursuit, with its more aggressive style, should win the battle for intimidation with ease. The 2015 Dodge Charger Pursuit is heavily influenced by its 1960s history but with modern styling touches integrated including the signature LED racetrack tail lamps. The headlamps and tail lamps wrap around each corner to give this police cruiser a trimmer look. PHOTOS: See More of the 2015 Dodge Charger Pursuit
Unfortunately the best looking part of this car is what you're going to see in your rearview mirror: the front fascia. The Charger Pursuit has an all-new crosshair grille, LED turn signals and daytime running lights, and new projector-beam headlamps. The front fascia is forward leaning for a more aggressive style.

There's nothing new about the powertrain in the Charger Pursuit, but that doesn't make it any less potent. Under the hood is a 5.7-liter HEMI V8 that has 370 horsepower, 390 lb.-ft. of torque, and a 0-60 mph time of less than 6 seconds. The Charger Pursuit powertrain set the fastest-ever lap time at the 2012 Model Year Michigan State Police Vehicle Evaluation (1:33.70) at the Grattan Raceway in Belding, Michigan. The Charger Pursuit V6 with its aluminum 3.6-liter Pentastar engine delivers 292 horsepower and 260 lb.-ft. of torque.

This being a police cruiser, it does get some things you're not going to find on the civilian package. That includes a column-mounted shifter to free up the center console; larger 14.5-in. front and 13.8-in. rear pursuit-rated brake package; additional front suspension bushing durability improvement for RWD; uniquely designed fascia brake cooling ducts; and a new Dodge steering wheel with remappable auxiliary buttons programmed to operate aftermarket police equipment.
