5 Police patrol cars making the American auto industry proud

Check out the American autos that have helped protect and serve over the past couple of years. If you could pick one to drive, which one would it be?

 

2011 Dodge Charger Enforcer
This 2011 Dodge Charger Enforcer packs a 3.6-liter Pentastar V6 engine with the option of a 5.7-liter HEMI V8 with a fuel-saving Multi-displacement System. It features performance suspension tuning, anti-lock vented-disc brakes, front- and rear-stabilizer bars, 18-inch performance tires on steel wheels and two-mode police-specific Electronic Stability Control calibration.

 

2011 Stealth Ford Police Interceptor concept
This 2011 Stealth Ford Police Interceptor is powered by a 3.5-liter V6 engine that produces 280 HP and has E85 compatibility. The car has the paint job and mesh grille from the original Interceptor with a mean spoiler and matching black bead lights.

 

2011 Chevrolet Caprice Police Car
The 2011 Chevrolet Caprice car has a 6.0-liter V8 engine that puts out 355 horses and 384 lb.ft or torque. It comes standard with 18-inch steel wheels with bolt-on center caps, 4-wheel disk brakes with heavy-duty brake pads, police-calibrated stability control system and special equipment packages, such as spotlights.

 

2010 Chevy Tahoe Police
The 2010 Chevy Tahoe Police was designed to offer extensive functionality for special operations, such as HAZMAT, K9, medical and tactical with police and other bodies of government responders. It’s said to have the lowest life cycle cost of any vehicle in law enforcement, taking into account depreciation expense, fuel costs, finance costs, opportunity costs, maintenance costs, repair costs, and cost to insure.

 

Chevrolet Corvette Z06

Good luck out-running a cop in a Corvette. In Wake County, North Carolina, police cruise the highways in an unmarked black Chevy Corvette Z06 (obviously not the one pictured) to help catch speeders. The police department’s Corvette was seized in a drug bust, so they made it into their own police vehicle.
