The days of the Ford Crown Victoria cop car are gone. Here’s a car that some cops are falling in love with. Kyle Stock on the new Dodge Charger; a true cop car:
In the parlance of the Blues Brothers, the Charger is a cop car, and the latest iteration may corner that part of the market more easily than ever before. For one thing, it’s a big car with burly brakes and a beefy engine—both the six-cylinder and eight-cylinder options are powerful. It has cavernous wheelhouses in back to accommodate wide, sticky tires. The new Charger also comes with a “stealth mode” for dimming inside lights and a feature called Secure Park that lets a driver walk away from the idling car without it being stolen.
What makes it a ‘cop car?‘ No front wheel drive.
