Default Dodge puts 340 horses under good guys' hoods

Look what the cops are getting......

I'm thinking these can easily catch any of us here..... maybe with the exception of Rogue.
I heard these things can do low 13s on street tires.

It'* been a long time since the police have had something this fast in a standard production cruiser.

Most of the cruisers up here are Suburbans, saw one or two Impalas too.
The Chargers are nice but they look a lot like the 300 to me? but V8 and rwd, sign me up

Unimpressed. Why? They will be plagued with mechanical problems down the road. Why? They are Mopar.

plus there are going to be more police crashing becuase some might not be able to handle that kinda power. or want to show off and loose control. I dont care how much experience you have.
