Chrysler announced several upgrades for its now available 2014 Dodge Charger Pursuit sedan, including high-performance brakes and several new police-specific security systems.

As previously reported by, the biggest change for 2014 is the new all-wheel-drive system for Charger Pursuit models equipped with the 5.7-liter HEMI V-8. The new AWD system features an active transfer case and front-axle disconnect for all-season traction.

In addition to the new drivetrain, Chrysler added larger, 14.5-inch high-performance brakes for 2014; made a camber link change to the rear suspension for improved performance during high-speed driving and aggressive braking maneuvers; made the fuel pump more durable; gave the vehicle a variable-displacement air-conditioner compressor for added efficiency; and revised the rear fascia and exhaust tips to enhance the Charger's ability to cross highway medians without damaging the vehicle.

Chrysler now offers a factory-installed Mopar horizontal or vertical vinyl graphics in addition to the other updates.

Chrysler will also offer the police-specific Secure Park system, which prevents someone from driving away in the idling vehicle without a key fob present in the vehicle itself, and the ParkSense rear park assist.

This may help the 'fragile' label fade a little. Many of these Chargers are spending more time in the shop than they are on the road. We'll see what happens with these improvements.

The all wheel drive feature is just dodge trying to be as good as ford,ford beat them to it,if you like the charger its probly because it looks mean,but have never driven one.

@adamj - Our whole department likes the chargers except one guy, he's a ford guy. Whether they are "copying" Ford or not the chargers needed awd. Our area is hilly and few times a year we have to go off road. Also, 0-100 speed is great. Chargers have a lot more room in the cabin than the taurus, but I like them to.

The brakes on the 2014 remind me of the 2010 model. They hear you miles away with the loud squeaking noise. I had the 2007, 2010, 2012, and now the 2014 model for my patrol unit all new. I miss the muffler sound on the 2007 and the square body that made it look like a mini take. 2010 seemed to much like a sedan. 2012 added some great features. 2014 can't comment its still only 1500 miles now, but I will say so far no complaints except for the brake sounds and wishing the muffler gave that mean sound of the 2007 model

My last two squads have been chargers. I just got issued a 14' and my previous was a 13'. Have you noticed a huge change in the suspension? The back of my car feels like it is going to bounce out from behind me if I hit bumps. I can push on the back of the 14' and it bounces all over the place, but on the 13' it hardly moves.... I also think the tailpipes look cheap compared to the 13'.

I have driven the police versions: hemi Charger, Taurus, Crown Vic. Tahoe, and Explorer. All things being equal, the best vehicle is the Charger. Yes, it looks better, but it is more comfortable in the cabin, is a beast that can take a hit, will not roll over, is fast in the range it needs to be, brakes are good for such a heavy car, and even w/o awd, it is incredible in snow w/ the right set up. The engine is reliable. My only beef-which I guess they fixed is you can drive off with the car if the operator has the fob on the person and is away from the car.
