Bull bars. Reinforced ballistic doors. Heavy-load capability. A 5.7 Hemi V8. This is one extreme law-enforcing police truck.
The Ram Special Services Police Truck has been designed to dole out punishment to bad guys who run afoul of the long arm of the law. Featuring such awesome law-enforcing accoutrements like bull bars, door supports with ballistic protection capability, four-wheel drive configuration and a 5.7-liter V8 engine capable of producing 390hp and 407lb-ft of torque, the police-spec Ram is one pursuit vehicle not to mess with.
The truck contains a 3.92 axle ratio designed for a quick acceleration to make use of the over 400lb-ft of torque the Hemi engine can produce. A 220-amp alternator has also been equipped to help handle the load the electric gadgetry needed for police work puts on the truck. A unique wiring harness has been engineered to handle the toll the radar, lighting, radio equipment and computer also put out on the pursuit vehicle. The Ram 1500 sits on a set of steel wheels wrapped in Goodyear tires. It boasts both best-in-class ride and handling and a 5-year/100,000-mile powertrain warranty, meaning police won't be shy when they hear a call to action.
"The Ram 1500 Special Service Truck has been engineered to handle the severe demands of Law Enforcement... This package expands our portfolio of hardworking vehicles available to state and local governments," said Peter Grady, Vice President of Network Development and Fleet, Chrysler Group LLC.
