The Dodge Charger Pursuit has been updated for the 2015 model year with updates that carry over from the retail Dodge Charger's refresh, Chrysler has announced.

For the refresh, the Dodge Charger Pursuit gets sleeker styling, improved brakes, and several updates in the cockpit, including a new 7-inch instrument screen and next-generation Uconnect 5.0 infotainment system with Bluetooth as standard equipment.

The vehicle's steering wheel has been redesigned as a three-spoke sport wheel with larger illuminated buttons that control driver information functions. Auxiliary buttons can be mapped to control aftermarket police equipment.

Other new features include Fleet Park Assist Group, which includes a rear back-up camera and Park Sense for enhanced rear-view visibility; larger 14.5-inch front and 13.8-inch rear brake package; new RWD electric power steering system that improves fuel efficiency; and wig wag prepared LEDs in the front headlamp assembly.

The Charger Pursuit is offered with a 3.6L Pentastar V-6 or 5.7L HEMI V-8 engine with rear-wheel or all-wheel drive.

How about a Charger that can stay on the road for more than a week without going to the shop for two more?

How about a vehicle with adequate visibility so you don't need a camera to reverse?

Haters gonna hate

Officers are getting bigger, cars getting smaller. The technology is great (stability control, et. al.) but make a car big officers and big suspects can actually fit in. Enter early 90's Caprice...

Todd, you are right. More and more rural and small departments are going to SUV and Truck based vehicles because we have to carry more and more equipment. Today's cars are way to small. Such is the deal with retail cars, so at least we have choices. Around here (N/W Indiana) we are seeing a lot of agencies buy the Ford and Dodge SUVs and the Ram 4X4's. We have Durangos and will be purchasing the Ram trucks for patrol work. If you look at the 4 door, shortbed pickups today, you see the 4 door sedans of 60-80's . Large cabins, great cargo (trunk) areas with room for gear. Soon "cars" will be used in urban use and trucks in more rural areas. That's the price for progress. I think Dodge is making a mistake by not offering AWD in the V6 car. Most agencies that want cars want a MPG advantage , even though the Hemi does pretty well. It is easier to sell V6's to taxpayers and around here, depts. are buying the Taurus only because of the V6. My 2015 squadcar will be a Ram 4X4 Hemi !

Hey crash, do you know this from personal experience or are you just parroting what Dodge haters have repeated over the years...also with no personal experience? We have the new Chevy Caprices which we call the the Crap-pieces...the absolute worst and most unreliable cars ever. We would love to get some Chargers.

And.. while we are lamenting the passing of big cars.. My last "car" was a re-furbished 1995 LT1 Caprice. Black.. slicktop.. no decals ! Did the SS grill and de-chromed !! Loved that monster. Ran out of room before top speed! Loads of interior and trunk room. County officers had the new (W)impala and I'd pass them in 3rd gear at 115MPH..they'd just wave me on as I shifted into 4th at 122MPH and going. They maxed out at about 114 or so. Got a lot of one finger salutes as I passed them too ! (old geezer warning here) My first squadcar was a '72 Impala... So have had a bunch of different Fords, Dodges, and Chevys. Had a '72 Mercury 460 once too. Fast as hell.. wouldn't turn or STOP!! Scared the hell out of me a bunch of times !! Size+HP+performance king was the late 90's Caprices. Saw 144 MPH on the radar once. Did everything well and lasted forever !

@ Marshal Fine, you really need to watch some of the videos from below 100 training. 78 Malibu 4D was my first car troll car......but the reflexes aren't what they once were and below 100 training will chill your blood.
