Dodge Durango Pursuit police vehicle ready to chase some bad guys

The Durango and Charger share significant components, simplifying maintenance and fix for police agencies that use both vehicles.

Get ready to check your rear view mirror for another type of police cruiser, since Dodge has introduced the 2018 Dodge Durango Pursuit, which joins the Charger Pursuit in its police vehicle lineup.

The brand, a division of Fiat Chrysler Automobiles, already markets the Dodge Charger Pursuit, the top-selling police sedan in the USA market. Ford has its popular Interceptor SUV (based on the Explorer) and sedan models (based on the Taurus) as well as a new Responder line of F-150 trucks and Fusion sedans. A rear-biased all-wheel drive system is standard on the Pursuit as well, though it's an option on the production R/T. "This is the same powertrain combination most commonly deployed in the Dodge Charger Pursuit, the top-selling police sedan in the US market". The Durango Pursuit also adds a two-speed transfer case, which should prove handy when bad guys try to escape by venturing off road.

Both the new 2018 Dodge Durango Pursuit and Charger Pursuit are equipped with a 360-horsepower 5.7-liter Hemi V-8 engine mated to an 8-speed automatic transmission. Now though, there's a pursuit package vehicle that's worthy of our lust, and it's called Dodge Durango Pursuit.

Body found in search for Frightened Rabbit singer Scott Hutchison
Scottish police have confirmed that they have found a body in their search for missing Frightened Rabbit singer Scott Hutchison . Prior to his disappearance on Wednesday, Scott had posted a series of cryptic and worrying messages on his personal Twitter.

FCA says the Durango Pursuit has a two-speed transfer case for "true low-range off-road capability" and that its anti-lock brakes have a 60-0 miles per hour stopping distance of 134 feet.

This new heavy-duty police SUV's all-terrain capabilities are further proven thanks to its 119.8-inch wheelbase, 7,200-pound towing capacity, and 8.1 inches of ground clearance. Durango specifically calls out that its three-zone climate control system is K-9 friendly, and that alone gets a 13/10 from us.

Police departments will always need powerful vehicles, the Durango Pursuit fits the profile already created by the Ford Interceptor and Chevrolet Tahoe PPV.
