It’s not all about brute force under the hood though for the Dodge Charger Pursuit. It also features best-in-class stopping power going from 60 to 0 mph in less than 127 feet – quite a feat for a full-size sedan. Other changes to the 2014 model year include a revised rear bumper to further enhance the “pursuit” capability of the Charger when crossing highway medians and an upgraded fuel pump for added durability.
The 2014 Dodge Charger Pursuit AWD will be made available to law enforcement customers in the spring of 2014.
