Dodge today debuted the intimidating 2015 Charger Pursuit for law enforcement agencies. The automaker already has Charger Pursuits on the market, however this latest update adds the cars facelifted front fascia and updated rear end to the car, enhancements which were made to the Charger for the 2015 model year.
Dodge didn’t just change the styling of the Charger pursuit, though. The automaker received feedback from 22 members of its Police Advisory Board, helping them to gauge what police officers really want from their cars. This resulted in improved performance and changes to the interior, including remappable auxiliary buttons on the steering wheel for aftermarket law enforcement equipment.
Inside, the 2015 Charger Pursuit receives Chrysler’s Uconnnect 5.0 system with a 5-inch touch screen and Bluetooth capabilities. It also features a column mounted shifter which leaves more room for equipment and police-duty front seats for accommodating officer’s belt-mounted gear.
The updated Pursuit is available with a choice of either a 5.7-liter HEMI V8 or a Pentastar V6. The 5.7-liter V8 is making 370 horsepower and 390 lb-ft, helping propel the Charger Pursuit from 0-60 mph in under six seconds. The V6 is producing 292 horsepower and 260 lb-ft. Both engines are available with either rear or all-wheel drive.
In addition to the standard updates, Mopar-developed packages are also available with the Charger Pursuit. These include an electronics package for accommodating various police equipment, including sirens, lights, computers, cameras and radios. Another Mopar package includes police floor consoles, exterior graphics, steel seatback inserts and a ballistics package for driver and passenger doors.
The 2015 Charger Pursuit is available to order from Dodge’s fleet services now.
