The 2012 Dodge Charger Pursuit will become available for purchase to USA police forces in 2012. Police forces who decide to indulge in the 2012 Dodge Charger will have the option of either a Chrysler’s 3.6 litre Pentastar V6 making 292-hp or a 5.7 litre HEMI V8 making 370-hp.
This new and upcoming muscle car will do 0-60 mph at approximately 5.2 seconds, and will use fuel saving technology. The standard version of the Dodge uses a 6.4 litre engine.
Whilst the vehicle’s performance is impressive, the car will do an average of about 25 mpg. (miles per gallon). This isn’t bad considering the specs of the car, however, it won’t be a cheap beast to run.
The expected price of the 2012 Dodge Charger Purist is around $60,000-$70,000, which includes various upgrades from the standard edition. Police forces will be able to customize the car to their exact requirements, as Mopar will offer numerous technology packs.
Whilst the 2012 Dodge Charger Pursuit has great looks, strong performance, and numerous technology abilities, the main issue is affordability. The 2012 Dodge Charger Pursuit is reasonably priced for all it offers, but at $70,000 each, combined with the running costs, don’t expect to see too many on the streets.
