The 2011 Charger Pursuit comes with performance suspension tuning, heavy-duty anti-lock vented-disc brakes (ABS), front- and rear-stabilizer bars, 18-inch performance tires on steel wheels, and two-mode police-specific Electronic Stability Control (ESC). The interior will get a Police Interface Module for easy equipment integration, police-duty front seats, column-mounted automatic transmission with Auto Stick, red/white LED interior lighting for night-vision equipment, and more. Adding to the safety of the vehicle will be multistage driver and front-passenger air bags, seat-mounted side-thorax air bags, supplemental side-curtain air bags for front and rear outboard passengers, driver’s knee bag, tire-pressure monitoring, and more.

The 2011 Dodge Charger Pursuit is powered by an all-new standard E-85 capable 3.6-liter Pentastar V-6 engine with variable-valve timing (VVT) and available legendary 5.7-liter HEMI™ V-8 engine with fuel-saving Multi-displacement System (MDS).

If all policemen have cars like this, I will definitely go to the police academy to earn one of these.

I will certainly not accept that this car the Dodge Charger Pursuit is a powerful car. The car actually using a v6 technology which is kind of outdated technology. I have a doubt on the reliability of the car.

If this is what the new 2011 (civilian) Charger tail look like, it’s a shame. Beautiful face, excellent body, with a great personality is what make the Charger good, but the rear end... I’ll have to see it in person.

The grille looks like the new Durango grille, but with less chrome. It’s definitely different than the one seen on the old Charger leak.

nice smiley this one should be on need for speed hot pursuit
