Arizona Cops Get New Dodge Challenger Patrol Vehicles

Muscle Cars / Comments

It's trying to pull you over.

Police departments across the US are facing serious strain. Not only are protests more prevalent than ever, but in some states, people are calling for police funding to be cut. Thankfully some states still care about maintaining an effective police force. In Arizona, the Governor's Office of Highway Safety has recently made a very generous donation to the Prescott Valley Police Department. The local police department is adding two brand-new 2021 Dodge Challenger R/T vehicles to its patrol fleet. These vehicles will be used to chase down hazardous drivers, bring them in, and look totally badass while doing so.

Despite some political interference every now and again, the Dodge Challenger has proven to be a highly effective police car, and continues to sell well, despite its age. The two R/T examples donated to the Prescott Valley Police Department are destined for daily patrol duty and collision response, but speed enforcement (aka super awesome police chases) are high on the agenda. According to the Prescott Valley Police Department, the city has seen a spike in traffic and speeding incidents, and according to dispatch data, excessive speed citations have increased by 290% over 2019.

The two Dodge Challenger R/Ts both come with a powerful 5.7-liter Hemi V8 engine producing 375 horsepower which it sends exclusively to the rear wheels via an eight-speed automatic transmission and a limited-slip rear axle. R/T models also come with performance suspension and a thicker rear stabilizer bar to handle tight corners while limiting body roll.

The R/T also gets heavy-duty engine cooling for long days out on patrol. The Prescott Valley Police Department encourages the public to report any reckless drivers to their local police agency . We recommend that the Prescott Valley Police Department enjoy these muscle cars while they can, because the Dodge Challenger will soon be going electric.
