Australian Police received Dodge Charger Pursuit-based service vehicles. The car was equipped with a 3.6-liter Pentastar gasoline engine with a capacity of 303 horsepower. So far, local authorities have purchased two such cars – one of them is rear-wheel drive, the other is equipped with an all-wheel drive system. According to Motor1, the car will be added to the Queensland police fleet. However, there is no official confirmation of this information yet.
To facilitate the pursuit of criminals in difficult road conditions, the designers have modified the suspension and improved the brakes in the police version. In addition, an electronic stabilization system has been added here.
Also, the car received a speakerphone, flashing beacons and special police liveries. Dodge Charger Pursuit is equipped with special wheels, heavy-duty glass and bulletproof doors.
The Dodge Charger Pursuit is not the only unusual vehicle in the possession of Australian law enforcement officials. For example, they have an 805-horsepower FPV GT-F, a version of the Ford Falcon, in their fleet. It is considered the fastest police car in Australia.
Police also use the Holden Commodore SS sedan. The car was equipped with a 6.2-liter 408 hp engine, which successfully copes with the role of an interceptor in the state of Victoria. It overcomes the 100 km / h mark in just 5 seconds. Another Australian interceptor vehicle is the 362hp Ford Falcon XR6 Turbo.
Another recent novelty in the Australian police fleet is the KIA Stinger fastbacks. Local authorities believe that the use of such machines for the daily work of law enforcement officers helps to popularize the police service among ordinary citizens.
