New Dodge Charger Police Car Being Considered

Common for all Dodge Charger models is distinctive white LED cross-car full-width front lighting and red “ring of fire” LED rear taillamps, with front and rear lights centered by a lit Fratzog logo — the new symbol of Dodge brand next-generation vehicles.

With Dodge eliminating the V8 in the Charger, we were ready to discontinue the last PPV (Police Pursuit Vehicle) car in production as the brand switched towards electrification. However, Dodge CEO Tim Kuniskis plans to keep the Charger nameplate within the ranks of law enforcement, as it generates significant revenue for the brand.

During the media backgrounder attended by MC&T, Kuniskis was asked if the brand had plans to offer a “pursuit” version of its new Charger, he said, “It’s definitely on our radar.” The police-spec Chargers are a notable aspect of the vehicle’s business, so it makes sense that they would have something planned to keep that source of revenue in the works. That said, Kuniskis stopped short of confirming any definite plans for the vehicle. If something were to be built, it wouldn’t arrive until 2025, as that is when production of the four-door version of the Charger will commence.

Since it seems Dodge will be keeping its cards close to its chest regarding the new Charger PPV, it’s unclear which version of the new Charger the brand will use, be it the electric Charger Daytona or the inline-six gas-powered Charger SIXPACK, though it’s likely to be the latter, considering the demands of law enforcement. That said, if the new Pursuit vehicle is anything like previous models, enforcement administrators will have a wide range of customization choices that will enable them to specify the cars that best suit their needs. Perhaps both the EV and Hurricane-powered models will be made available.

As it stands, the Charger is the last Sedan-based PPV used by law enforcement within the country, which led many to believe after Dodge ended production of the muscle car with the Hemi under the hood that the only PPVs that would be in use would be SUVs and trucks, but that may not be the case. We shouldn’t have to wait too long before we learn the fate of one of America’s most popular cop cars, though all indications seem to point towards the all-new Charger pursuit vehicle becoming a reality.

Zac's love for cars started at a young age, after seeing the popular Eleanor from Gone In 60 Seconds. From there, fascination and enthusiasm blossomed and to this day the Ford Mustang remains a favorite. His first job started out detailing cars, but also provided the opportunity to work on restoration including an 1968 Ford Mustang, Pontiac Firebird, and a C3 Corvette, though he left that job before further work and experience could be had. From there, he was a detailer at a car dealership before quitting that job to try and finish college.

Much of his free time while studying was spent watching YouTube videos regarding new cars, or off-roading. 4WD247 is a personal favorite channel which rekindled a dying flame in car enthusiasm, now tailored towards trucks and SUVs and the fun that can be had building up an overlanding rig, and going on adventures, though, that chapter remains unwritten for the time being.
