Criminals in Michigan have got it tough. Not only do they live in Michigan, but they also have to be on the constant look out for the Michigan State Police who are now driving the 2014 Dodge Charger Pursuit, which has just won the title of being America’s fastest all-wheel-drive car.
At this year’s Police Vehicle Evaluation at Grattan Raceway, the Michigan State Police got the AWD Dodge Charger Pursuit to set a time of 1:33.85, which is so fast that it is less than a tick of the second behind the 1:33.70 record for rear-wheel-drive cop cars set last year.
The talking heads at Chrysler are predictably pleased with the time posted by the the HEMI-powered sedan housing a 370-hp V8 engine. “With the record-holding rear-wheel drive Dodge Charger Pursuit and now the fastest-ever recorded all-wheel drive model, Chrysler Group offers those who protect and serve us with the best pursuit-rated sedans in the business. And with the only test cars achieving lap times less than 1:34, Dodge Charger Pursuit highlights the segment’s best combination of world-class technology, acceleration, braking, handling and dynamics” said, Peter Grady, Vice President of Network Development and Fleet for Chrysler.
