New Cop Cars

You'll have to memorize the look of two new cop cars shortly. Announced at the beginning of the month, police will be getting new rides as early as the start of 2011. The 3 major contenders are the Chevy Caprice (More commonly known as the Holden Caprice), the Ford Taurus, and the Dodge Charger. All 3 of these cars are quite unique, yet they have their ups and downs. I'll be going into more detail below.

The Chevy(Holden) Caprice:

  • Built in Australia 
  • 6.0-liter V8 produced 355 horse power
  •  Rear Wheel Drive
  • GM says "0-60 in less than 6 seconds"
The Ford Taurus:

  • Will replace the 'Crown Victoria'
  • Twin Turbo V6 producing 365 horse power (This is the faster of the two Ford versions)
  • All Wheel Drive
  • Fuel efficient and provides very adequate power 
The Dodge Charger Pursuit:

  • Continued model from previous years
  • 5.7-liter V8 Hemi (And a 3.6L Pentastar V6 engine model)
  • Rear Wheel Drive
  • Video Leaked (<-- Footage of the new Charger)
Out of all 3 vehicles, the Chevy Caprice appeals to me most due to its wonderful technology, and it being manufactured by Holden. Although I'm not quite looking forward to any of them actually being on the road....
