All the ones in and around town are V6's.

The highway patrol cars are V8's, or in Ford's case...Ecoboost V6.

Most are...there's a state unit here with a motor swap, so you never know. Saw it at an auto expo. Has over 700 hp.

Good luck with that one...

it is all up to the department that is ordering it, as far as what's under the hood and the many options available. So many options now with V6 vs V6-turbo vs V8, all wheel drive vs front wheel drive vs rear wheel drive. I don't think it is even real consistent with cities using sixes and highway patrols using eights. It is more of a budget issue than a power issue nowadays.

completely depends on your definition of winning...technically you would end up ahead of the cop when he pulls you over to give you your ticket, but then you would be behind the cop as he hauls you in for street racing.....would that be a tie?

Any SS would spank a police charger, with a V8. I know because I have one Low end torque is good, but a lot of extra weight and equipment. It's good for across the board power band. I would estimated a quarter mile for police charger V8's probably at 14.0....maybe a tenth faster
