Dodge to Unleash HEMI Power in Police Car Market


Dodge is upping the ante in the law enforcement market with a new rear-wheel-drive Dodge Magnum police car powered by the legendary HEMI V-8 engine.

With police requirements in mind, Dodge engineers integrated specific law enforcement vehicle features and functionality into the original design of the Dodge Magnum, minimizing the need for numerous aftermarket retrofits.

Electronic Stability Program (ESP), All-speed Traction Control, four-wheel anti-lock brakes with emergency brake assist and improved tire design are standard equipment on the Dodge Magnum SXT for special service uses (as they are on all Magnum SXT models). Combined, these features provide balance and control for officers in a variety of surface and weather conditions. These same advanced technologies also are standard on the 2006 Dodge Magnum police package models.

In addition to the enhanced performance and handling available with the Dodge Magnum, the spacious interior will provide officers a balance of cargo room and flexibility. With 27.2 cubic feet behind the rear seat (71.6 cubic feet with rear seats folded flat), the Dodge Magnum offers maximum functionality for law enforcement needs. The rear cargo area features an upper flat-load floor that expands the usable cargo area when the rear seats are folded forward. Additional storage is provided for smaller items below this load floor and in deep pockets on either side of the floor. The Dodge Magnum's "extreme access" liftgate creates an unusually large cargo opening by allowing the gate to swing up rather than out from the vehicle. The 11.3-square-foot opening swallows large items such as police emergency equipment, duffel bags, dog crates, traffic cones or barricades.

The 2005 Dodge Magnum SXT model will be available this fall to law enforcement agencies for special service use. For 2006, Dodge will introduce a police package, which will be offered on the Dodge Magnum model.

2005 Dodge Magnum SXT

The 2005 Dodge Magnum SXT features a 3.5-liter V-6 engine that provides high power and torque over the entire operating band for the perfect blend of performance and economy. Combined with standard advanced technologies, flexible and functional cargo space and state-of-the-industry safety features, the Dodge Magnum SXT provides a bold, powerful and capable entry into the law enforcement Special Services car market.
