Dodge Charger police pursuit vehicle revealed – Click above to watch the video after the jump

This all seems a bit backwards. Chrysler has yet to release the official details and images about the 2011 Dodge Charger, but we already have the skinny on the Charger Pursuit, Dodge's work-ready police car set to hit the streets in just a few months. And while only one official image of the Charger cop car has been revealed, a new video gives us a walk-around of Chrysler's latest pursuit vehicle.

Recorded at what appears to be some sort of police fleet convention, this poorly-lit amateur video gives us a nearly complete view of what the 2011 Charger's exterior will look like when gussied up for police duty. Furthermore, it shows off the new lines of the Charger sedan, including that Challenger-inspired rear end.

Can't wait for Chrysler to unload a high-res image gallery of 2011 Charger photos? Feed your impatience by watching the video after the jump. Hat tips to Edgardo and Dave W!

      For some reason, i like the current charger better. It looks odd to me...but on road, its gonna be the most stare-at-me-angry-attitude-car...i got 07 charger i woudl say interior ain't bad, actually i liked it. lots of soft touch material. i don't understand how come 08-10 is falling back on its quality....hard plastic all over the place......the old seat is easy to get stain on it but its quite comfortable. the 08-10 is so uncomfortable. but the 11 interior looks stunning. i actually like it except the gauges. look into details. i think the mass sliver pannel got carbon-wave treated like the one on challenger. It would look decent with maybe real metal or alum. Look at other cars. camaro, mustang. they all ain't better than charger. the problem with charger is just need more refine.

        What are you talking about?

        The 2008 debuted the new interior which HAS soft touch plastic, including the dashboard.

      I love it!! Now, give me a two-door version with a blackout grill and hide-aways and call it a day!! I like it even better than the current model.

      Flag decal is backwards, at least according to military and aviation standards. Maybe it's petty, but things like that show a lack of attention to detail.

      Thus, in my mind, instead of the Charger team saying "Hey, let's start from the ground up and build a great police car!" I hear "Hey, let's milk those suckers for all they've got. Slap some stickers on the Charger, give it a heavy-duty alternator and call it good!"

        Why don't you research the Charger police package that's out now before you comment:

        Braking system is different including the ESP system which includes a full off

        The electrical system is different

        Suspension and tires are different

        Even the interior is different (including the column shift, which isn't offered on any Charger)

        But you'd know that, since your obviously too much of a smart ass.

      Finally a back end with some attention to style, that was always my biggest quip with the old charger, plus the fact that I can't afford one, but that's beside the point. Now they just need some way to fit the Viper V10 and the car would be perfect. It doesn't need the power, but the extra cylinders sure do add a lot of bragging right.

      I like the new front end.
      I like the new rear.
      I like the new dash.

      Those sides however look horrible as does the useless roofline.

      Lots of purps are going to be banging their heads!

      Nice to see a little Charger heritage in the contours. They break up the formerly slab-sided sedan rather nicely and very similar to that old concept Charger from what, like ten years ago. I'm looking forward to seeing the civilian version.

      *BIG YAWN*

      The tail light treatment is abysmal! A totally CHEAP and LAZILY performed design!
      Hopefully the 300C's refresh will be better.
        • 4 Years Ago
        I gotta agree, the fit and finish of the rear taillights are not looking right. Looks like crap to be honest. And the front end isnt anything evolutionary of the current design, its just different. Although I do admit it does look aggressive.

        Just think I'd rather have an SHO or soon to be extinct G8.

        You do realize it is designed to resemble that of the 1969 Charger rear-end, like the General Lee? It was either that, or give it four round tail lights like the 1968 model.

      Menacing.

      It actually kinda looks like the 4-door Mustang that everyone's been clamoring for. The forward canted fascia just has that menacing muscle car look to it. I guess that was always the best part of the current car as well, it's just that the rest of it was such a hot mess. I'm not yet sure if the whole package works as a cohesive design though. I definitely see some old Charger cues on the new body side and rear. I'll reserve judgment until I see it on the road.

      One thing is for sure, I'm thinking some tuner is going to graft a '69 charger-like front end onto this thing similar to the attempts to make a new retro Firebird out of the Camaro.

      With all these good pursuit cars coming out, Carbon Motors will be begging departments to take E7s. I just hope they build enough E7s so I can see one in a museum someday.
      • 4 Years Ago
      Guess the spec that's most important to you, then, is rear legroom?
      • 4 Years Ago
      Much more menacing front end then either the Crown Vic or the Impala.

      You just know you are getting a ticket when pulled over by one of these!!!
        • 4 Years Ago
        I'd be far better if they sold it as a Plymouth Fury - what a great name!
        • 4 Years Ago
        Ticket, hell - you'll be lucky if you don't get your a$$ kicked. ;-)
        • 4 Years Ago
        For the shape, yes, agree. But it is too much chrome. Alright, I guess it can be blackened.
        • 4 Years Ago
        I absolutely agree, Fury is the right name for this car in a world of cars with forgettable numbers and letters as names.
