    Reading a description, it mentions a special LE only two mode ESP. I wonder how this differs from the normal ESP. I suspect it does two things. One would be to cut back on the torque management, which is where you get the lag in the drivetrain. The other would be a change to the "OFF" mode, to raise the intervention limits, allowing you more leeway than all civilian models except the SRT.

      **drooooooollll** That thing looks great. Sadly everyone around here is having budget issues and will probably not be buying any.

        Why in the heck does a police car need 20 inch rims and chrome exhaust tips?


        Even though I agree it looks awesome.....

          Not sure if it's a good idea to add all the weight for a police cruiser(cage, radio, safety equipment, lights, etc.) to a vehicle that already weighs 3800 lbs. from the factory stock...I know some agencies already use the Fiat Charger, but I'd think it would be a little useful to have a nimble and lightweight cruiser.

            Don't know if it really applies, but in a thirty eight year LE career, I NEVER had a voice in what car my Agency would purchase/drive. In common with most Departments, we went with the low bidder. That's when there were sufficient funds to purchase new vehicles.

              Forget it for the job, I want one for my personal car! The new rear looks nice!

                I am not too impressed by the new charger package. I definitely think that departments will lean towards the new ford line up http://blutube.policeone.com/Media/6...Reveal-Part-1/ and possibly the new Chevy Caprice.

                I am a die hard GM guy....but I am impressed with Ford's new line up.

                    We are going to be ordering soon. Maybe we'll get a few. Still hopin for the tahoe.

                      Fiat Charger. LOL!

                      Hey, would you like to go back to the Halcyon days of the Dodge Aspen or Plymouth Volare with the 225 "tower of power" Slant-6 under the hood?


                      Seriously, the Charger is a good car - civilian or police, V6 or V8 - and has restored Chrysler as a legitimate player in the law enforcement market. Ford's venerable Crown Vic (soon to go the way of the Dodge Diplomat) and Chevy's current front-drive Impala & upcoming rear-drive Caprice will allow good choices in the sedan market. The Tahoe is great as a pursuit-rated SUV when a car just doesn't have enough room. Too bad Ford won't build a police-market Mustang. Wouldn't a 415hp patrol coupe be great?

                      The comments above reflect my personal opinion as a private citizen, ordinary motorist and all-around good guy.

                        While you are in a drooling mood, check out some of these Aussie highway patrol vehicles. Some are V8, some big six, plus turbos. Very bad***!!

                          The rear end looks like an Intrepid. Not good!

                            Those Aussie cars are Pontiac G8's. These are built in Austrailia and will be the foundation of the new Chevy police vehicles. Nice looking, but I'm not sure how much room they will have inside once all the equipment and computer is installed.

                              Ehhh.... Better than what we're getting but its still a Dodge.
                              Rumor has it Chief is looking at FWD Impalas Ughhhh!!!!! I thought the V6 Chargers were bad. Im never complaining again. I was hoping for the new Caprice RWD V8 or a Taho. This is not the Chevy I was wanting, damn the budget. Heck Id be happy going back to the Ford CVPI.
