Traverse SS needs to happen. With a TTV6.

And a Traverse 9C1. In black and tan.

The Explorer was by far the worst police vehicle I ever drove, and that’s saying something. I hope Chevy builds a true performance SUV based on the Traverse.

Charger takes that prize for me. Might be fast but fast doesn't mean **** when the car is falling apart and any prisoner over 5'0 won't fit in the back seat with a cage.

Piece of junk. Most awkward seat position ever, it's like they didn't account for people that are taller than 5'8".

Need a rear-wheel-drive mid-sized SUV similar to the Envoy/Trailblazer. Unfortunately, I don't expect that to happen. To many wrong-wheel-drive crossovers.

It needs to happen. This is segment that I get asked on a daily basis about. Customers want it. They want a rear wheel drive midsize SUV. The people will drive it.

It might be coming but you’re going to get it with an electric motor. Are you still going to buy it?

I got to drive one, but it wasn’t ours. The Impala wasn’t bad I thought. It was small though. The Lumina’s we had one year (1996) were really tight, but I think that was just exaggerated by the fact we had just come from LT-1 powered Caprice’s. The Crown Vic’s in the late 90’s had the worst brakes I’ve ever experienced with their ABS. If you slammed on the brakes on a washboard type surface I sware to this day you’d go faster as it felt like it got confused and just gave up. Plus if you had chains on the bouncing of the rear would trip the fuel shutoff. Many times, in traffic, I’d have to jump out of the car, open the trunk, and push the button before I got rear ended in a snowstorm.

Buddy of mine who is a cop said the early 00 police Impala's were the worst police vehicles he had ever been in. Said it was way to cramped

What ever happened to that dedicated cop car some company was trying to build a few years ago?
