Police May Be Packing a HEMI


Byline: Bob Kocher

Take a roomy sedan or station wagon, give it rear-wheel-drive, stick a big powerful horsepower engine under the hood and you have the making of a highly desired police car. With Dodge's new Magnum wagon and the recently introduced Dodge Charger outfitted with the 340 horsepower HEMI, the black and white good guys at law enforcement agencies now have a choice between two new performance cruisers.

Dodge recently announced its "Hot Pursuit" entrance back into the police car market. So don't be surprised later this year when you see a HEMI powered new Magnum or Charger passing you. Dodge Charger police vehicles equipped with HEMI engines will be able to go from zero to 60 mph in just 6.0 seconds. Move over speeders.

Police departments across America have been clambering for a new rear-wheel-drive performance cruiser that's safe.

With the Dodge Charger and the Dodge Magnum now modern muscle is available for street patrol.

Easily installed aftermarket add-on can include secured communications, radios, computers, video surveillance equipment, pursuit lights, sirens, global positioning systems, navigation, radar apparatus, and much more.

"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. "This approach allows us to give our police customers an affordable, capable vehicle with industry-leading innovations."

For the ultimate in pursuit power, the Dodge Charger and Magnum police vehicles will be available with a 5.7-liter HEMI V-8 engine that produces 340 horsepower at 5,000 rpm and 390 lb.-ft. of torque at 4,000 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. …
