2006 Dodge Charger Police Interceptor.

Oi vey, another set of headlights to memorize for night driving... Can't wait till these are up or auction in 5 years.

Dodge puts 340 horses under good guys' hoods - Dodge Charger joins Dodge Magnum to make modern muscle available for street patrol - Superior rear-wheel-drive performance and handling characteristics designed to perform and protect

AUBURN HILLS, Mich., March 24 -- Dodge charges into the police car market this fall with the all-new 2006 Dodge Charger police vehicle, offering law enforcement agencies a four-door sedan with all the power, handling and functionality they require to effectively patrol the streets.

"With rear-wheel drive and available HEMI(R) power at the pavement, the Dodge Charger provides optimum police car pursuit performance," said Darryl Jackson, Vice President - Dodge Marketing, Chrysler Group. "Dodge has a strong police heritage and is proud to offer vehicles armed with modern muscle and cutting-edge technology."

The 2006 Dodge Charger police vehicle will join the previously announced Dodge Magnum police vehicle to round out Dodge's growing fleet of bold, powerful and capable vehicles for law enforcement agencies.

"We listened to what law enforcement officers asked for and paid attention to the details that are important to them," said Ray Fisher, Vice President - Sales, Service and Parts Operations, Chrysler Group. "By integrating features and functionality into the original design of the Dodge Charger, we can give our police customers an affordable, capable vehicle with industry-leading innovations."

For the ultimate in pursuit power, the Dodge Charger police vehicle will be available with a 5.7-liter HEMI V-8 engine that produces 340 horsepower at 5000 rpm and 390 lb.-ft. of torque at 4000 rpm. The V-8 HEMI engine features Chrysler Group's Multi-displacement System (MDS), which seamlessly alternates between smooth, high fuel economy four-cylinder mode when less power is needed and V-8 mode when more power is required. Fuel efficiency improves by up to 20 percent with MDS, but not at the expense of performance. Dodge Charger police vehicles equipped with HEMI engines will be able to go from zero to 60 mph in just 6.0 seconds.

The 2006 Dodge Charger police car also will be available with a powerful, 3.5-liter High Output V-6 engine that provides 250 horsepower at 6400 rpm and 250 lb.-ft. of torque at 3800 rpm, offering an outstanding blend of performance and fuel economy.

A fully electronic five-speed automatic transmission with an Electronically Modulated Converter Clutch (EMCC) offers improved shift feel to match a variety of driving styles, situations and road conditions. This transmission is standard on all Dodge Charger police cars. Heavy-duty brakes and linings, also standard on Charger police vehicles, provide secure and stable deceleration and braking capability.

In addition, Dodge Charger police vehicles will include an Electronic Stability Program (ESP) with Emergency Brake Assist, All-speed Traction Control and four-wheel Anti-lock Brake System (ABS). Combined, these features will provide balance and control for officers in a variety of surface and weather conditions.

* ESP enhances driver control and helps maintain directional stability in turns, even on uneven surfaces, patchy snow, ice or gravel. If there is a discernible difference between what the driver asks through the steering and the vehicle's path, ESP applies selective braking and throttle control to put the car back onto the driver's intended path

* Emergency Brake Assist detects when maximum braking is required through sensing the rate of brake application. By applying full brake pressure to all four brakes, this system improves stopping distance

* All-speed Traction Control enhances mobility and prevents wheel slip when accelerating on slippery surfaces. It also provides a measure of directional stability control and helps keep the car on its intended course. The system works by braking the slipping wheel in low-traction situations. However, it also can adjust the throttle control, making the vehicle less reliant on brake applications alone

* ABS keeps the vehicle straight and retains steering capability while braking on slippery surfaces by preventing wheel lock-up

Both passive and active safety features also are incorporated in the new Dodge Charger police vehicles. These include: advanced multistage driver and front passenger air bags, a front passenger Occupant Classification System (OCS) for controlled airbag deployment, constant force seat belt retractors, pretensioners, an energy-absorbing steering column, optional side-curtain airbags and a tire pressure monitoring system to alert officers of low tire pressure.

Preliminary Standard Features:

Standard features on the 2006 Dodge Charger police vehicle will include the following items of particular importance to law enforcement customers:

* 100-amp battery power feed in trunk
* 160-amp high-output alternator
* 160-mph calibrated speedometer
* 800CCA heavy-duty battery
* cloth front bucket seats with manual lumbar and rear fixed bench seat
* column shifter
* easy path wiring grommet between underhood and passenger compartment
* emergency rear-door-lock override
* external oil coolers
* four-wheel independent performance suspension
* heavy-duty brakes and linings
* integrated engine hour meter
* P225/60R 18 V-rated all-season performance tires and 18-inch steel
wheels
* performance-tuned steering
* police equipment interface module
* police equipment mounting bracket
* rear door locks and rear window switches inoperable from the rear seats
* severe-duty cooling system
* software-controlled alternating head- and taillamps
* special electrical wiring for police market applications
* speed control
* stealth mode switch for interior lighting
Additional standard features and optional equipment are available on the Dodge Charger police vehicle to provide law enforcement customers an affordable vehicle with industry-leading innovations that make upfitting the vehicle faster and safer.

Production:

Production for the 2006 Dodge Charger and Dodge Magnum police vehicles will begin in the fall of 2005 at the Brampton Assembly Plant in Brampton, Ontario (Canada) alongside the 2006 Dodge Magnum, Dodge Charger and Chrysler 300.

The 2006 Dodge police vehicles will be available to county, city and state police departments in the fourth quarter of 2005, with pricing announced at that time.
The black ones with pushbars and steel wheels will be downright scary to look at. I'm gonna be pulling up next to cops at stop lights and askin, "Hey! Does that thing got a Hemi?"

It's far superior to the FWD Chevrolet Impalas some forces were/are using.

suspension still looks too high on them, i love how the BA Falcons the cops here have about an inch or 2 cut out of the suspension, they look like theyre barely off the ground under full acceleration

They have to deal with grass and dirt when pursuing delinquents, it's better to have them at a regular height imo.
