Ordering is now open for the 2021 Dodge Charger Pursuit and Dodge Durango Pursuit vehicles, equipped with new transmissions and high-tech options designed to enhance officer safety, responsiveness, and fuel efficiency.
2021 Dodge Charger Pursuit
The Charger Pursuit will now offer the TorqueFlite eight-speed transmission on both available powertrain options: the V-6 all-wheel drive (AWD), with increased horsepower and torque, and the V-8 HEMI rear-wheel drive. These new powertrain combinations meet or exceed the Charger Pursuit’s previous performance profiles in all key categories of acceleration, braking, and handling. These improvements are also expected to enable increased fuel efficiency.
Other new standard features include a top speed setting of 140 mph with the ability for customers to configure and limit top speed for specific agency needs, electric power steering, Apple CarPlay, Android Auto, and an increased Gross Vehicle Weight Rating of 5,500 pounds to accommodate additional payload.
Production of the Charger Pursuit starts in the fourth quarter at the Brampton (Ontario) Assembly Plant.
2021 Dodge Durango Pursuit
The 2021 Dodge Durango Pursuit will offer more than 20 new standard features.
The AWD Durango Pursuit is powered by the standard 3.6-liter V-6 Pentastar engine or the optional 5.7-liter HEMI V-8 engine, both mated to the TorqueFlite eight-speed transmission. Other notable improvements include an IP-mounted shift lever to free up valuable space in the center console area, black steel wheels with chrome center caps, four programmable auxiliary switches, and police-specific front seats to accommodate duty belts and enable easier access to seat belt latch points.
Other key features now being offered are the upfit-friendly Vehicle Systems Interface Module, a heavy-duty ‘BR9’ brake package, standard vinyl flooring, and a tri-zone climate control system designed with K-9 units in mind. The Durango Pursuit has a top speed setting of 130 mph with the ability for customers to configure and limit for specific agency needs.
Production of the 2021 Dodge Durango Pursuit starts in the first quarter of 2021 at the Jefferson North Assembly Plant in Detroit.
