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

Can a thread be closed for being stupid and threatening the reputation of responsible owners with antagonizing law enforcement? If so, please do.

i love this thread. Your SS would beat the V8 Charger just on stock specs shit my V6 can keep up with the undercover V8 Chargers in New Hampshire with little issue the prior guess at around 14 in the 1/4 mile was about spot on for what the state troopers say around here but they did say some states do go for power upgrades based on nothing but excessive budget spending. However everyone is right you won't beat the radio and most troopers in chargers are not car guys despite that popular belief i find most of them dislike being asked about the car while every once in a blue moon you get one that will chat you up in good fun. My advice don't try racing them they'll let you get to a reasonable speed and give you a ticket for the revenue.

Correct me if I am wrong, but I don't believe it is illegal to get up to speed quickly as long as you aren't being reckless or negligent. Correct?

it was all in good fun im sure. if i was the cop i would have just laughed and said "have a good night" which is probably why you were expecting to happen.

if i remember correctly the Chargers in NYC are all R/T's. the cops down here in MD are still running Crown Vics. however down in Virginia Beach they are starting to get the new Caprice...which looks pretty mean. granted its a V6...but a 300hp V6 will still get it moving pretty quickly i assume.

Back in the day, I remember a foriegn Dr. going into court and fighting a "Peeling and Squeeling" citation while driving his Boss 302, and being all giddy when it got tossed. No dashcams back then. Should have been reckless op.
Saved himself 100 buck fine, and probably cost his practice 10x that for taking the morning off.
But he "won".

Motor Trend did a test and the numbers were- (1) Ford Interceptor 5.3 0-60 13.9 1/4 mile (2) Dodge Charger 5.6 0-60 14.1 1/4 mile. (3) Chevy Caprice 5.7 0-60 14.2 1/4 mile. So in a 1/4 mile you would take him but if someone is thinking about going for it to get away I would reconsider because they would only be a couple car lengths behind the camaro.

So let that be a lesson they have a radio but if you can find a corner when they spot you take it.
