Dodge is confident that Charger is "heavy-duty" enough for police duty without extensive modifications. This will allow Dodge to avoid specialized "batch' production of police duty Chargers, unlike GM or Ford. Currently, GM and Ford have to specially modify special duty versions of their Impala and Crown Victoria to handle the rigours of police work. This modification has to be done seperately from normal production. This may give the Dodge Charger a price advantage against GM and Ford. And it will provided needed competition for Ford's popular Crown Victoria. Prospects should be good for Charger if Michigan State Police trials are successful this fall.
