Police Package

By Police Fleet Manager Staff

The new Ford Police Interceptor is getting another boost under the hood with the addition of the 3.7-liter twin independent-variable camshaft timing (Ti-VCT) engine, offering law enforcement agencies fuel economy with more power. In response to police-fleet customer demand and with input from the Chrysler Group’s Police Advisory Board, the already well-received Dodge Charger Pursuit will offer an available all-wheel drive (AWD) system with the 5.7-liter HEMI® V8 engine.
