2016 Dodge Charger Pursuit Adds Innovative New Technologies

The 2016 Dodge Charger Pursuit is getting numerous technology upgrades to aid law enforcement.

Dodge has added a laptop-sized Uconnect 12.1-inch touchscreen system that provides a display of Uconnect radio and vehicle controls, as well as the ability to toggle to a law enforcement officer’s computer through a menu bar at the top of the screen. The system can also split the touchscreen to display the familiar and award-winning 8.4-inch Uconnect interface. There is also a plug-and-play Ethernet solution to connect an officer’s mobile computer out of sight in the Charger Pursuit’s trunk.

Overall, the new Uconnect 12.1 is more than five times larger than the Dodge Charger Pursuit’s standard Uconnect 5.0 system and is the segment’s largest offering.

The 2016 Dodge Charger Pursuit delivers 370 horsepower and is equipped with a factory-installed Mopar upfit package and all-wheel drive.

“As America’s high-performance police vehicle, Dodge Charger Pursuit is going big for 2016, offering a massive Uconnect touchscreen system that streamlines a law enforcement officer’s computer system with our easy-to-use Uconnect system – on an all-new laptop-size 12.1-inch touchscreen display,” said Tim Kuniskis, president and CEO – Dodge and SRT Brands, and vice president – Fleet Operations, FCA – North America. “Designed and tested to Charger Pursuit’s stringent test requirements, our all-new Uconnect 12.1 system is the latest piece of tactical hardware that is neatly integrated into the instrument panel for a mobile command center that could only be delivered from Dodge.”
