Did you ever think…what kind of vehicle do Police Officers or other Law Enforcement Agencies drive every day to “Protect and Serve”? The 2017 Dodge Charger Pursuit is one of the modern examples of those law enforcement vehicles. We will be taking this vehicle under the magnifying glass to see what it’s made of and how it holds up against today’s modern vehicles on the road.

The 2017 Dodge Charger Pursuit, other than a few high-tech features, is almost identical to its 2016 sibling. As always, with every Police vehicle, safety of the occupants and the public is the main priority in mind of the design of this vehicle. Predominant safety features such as the steel safety frame construction in the Dodge Charger Pursuit exceeds federal mandates for strength and helps protect occupants by managing and controlling energy in the event of an impact.

Bullet-resistant front door panels help protect and keep officers safe on the job. Specially designed front and rear crumple zones help absorb energy during an impact and redirect it away from passengers to help reduce the risk of injury.  Secure Park uses the brake transmission switch interlock to prevent the transmission from shifting out of park when engaged. Key-less Enter ’n Go™ enables key-less entry to the vehicle and push-button vehicle ignition when the key fob is near.

The interior of the vehicle is designed according the vehicle’s ultimate purpose of usage. Ergonomically adjusted seating design, equally important to give the easy in and out access to the vehicle for the officers. The floor-mounted shifter of the civilian Dodge Charger has been relocated to the steering column and redesigned for police use with a shorter lever, while AutoStick engineering allows the driver to up-shift or down-shift, based on driving strategies, road conditions and personal preference. Inside the Dodge Charger Pursuit, officers will find a new and improved vehicle systems interface module for easy equipment integration, police-duty front seats with distinctive bolstering to accommodate officers’ belt-mounted gear and a column-mounted shifter with AutoStick to free up space for center console-mounted equipment. 

This vehicle also comes with the modern-day technologies to give the necessary edge to the driver and passenger to operate and perform their duties flawlessly on the go.  The available 12.1-inch Uconnect® touchscreen allows integration of law enforcement systems while relocating the agency computer to the trunk for optimal space savings. It is designed to be operated with gloves and in extreme temperatures while maintaining unrestricted access to vehicle controls. An improved vehicle systems integration module features a new radio mute input, pulse width modulation vehicle speed output, reverse position output and drive position output.

The Dodge Charger Pursuit stands out with its easily recognizable design, scalloped bodysides, impressive front crosshairs and aggressive stance. The exterior of the vehicle is very fluid and athletic which makes the statement of “nothing can get away from this car on this highway”. Which we think that’s the ultimate deterrent message given with this vehicle very successfully. Equipped with modern LED lighting even when the sun goes down, the Dodge Charger Pursuit makes a bold statement on the road with Bifunctional Halogen Projector Headlamps and daytime running lamps. Available single or dual spotlights aid search capability. The Dodge Charger Pursuit offers a large and spacious trunk with plenty of room for police equipment.  

We believe today’s law enforcement industry has come a long way from driving good ol’ Crown Vics. The 2017 Dodge Charger Pursuit certainly may not be able to answer every need of every law enforcement agencies right off the bat, however, at this time, this vehicle and Dodge’s flexible options should let law enforcement agencies customize their vehicles according to their needs and usage.
