Mass. Agency Chooses Chevy Caprice for Duty
July 24, 2012
Starting this fall, the look of police cruisers in Lowell, Mass., will begin to change dramatically as the department begins buying 2013 Chevrolet Caprice police-patrol vehicles now that the ubiquitous Ford Crown Victoria is out of production.
The department already has one 2011 Caprice that is loaned out for officers to test and evaluate, and is used by the Traffic Bureau the rest of the time.
The cost of the vehicles was nearly identical, according to Crowley, with a difference of only $200 to $300 between models. Gas mileage was also similar, although all the new models of vehicles get better mileage than the old Crown Victoria.
