Our friends at Jalopnik managed to get their hands on these photos of the 2011 Dodge Charger Pursuit being put through the wringer at the Michigan State Police’s annual vehicle evaluation tests.
The MSP evaluation is a well recognized system designed to see how police package vehicles would hold up to the rigors of police duty.

The Dodge Charger Pursuit got one of its first public viewings at a police trade show. Lund Industries, which makes police car accessories like gun racks and light bars, had a 2011 Charger on display to show off their wares, and were kind enough to take video of the Charger for those who aren’t in law enforcement.
Chrysler still has yet to release pictures of the civilian Dodge Charger, so for now, the black-and-white patrol car is our best look yet. We can’t wait to get a chance to sample one with a HEMI.
