Dodge Durango Special Service SUV unveiled, ready for the police

If you’re a car enthusiast and work in the law-enforcement industry, then 2012 will turn out to be one interesting year for you. The big 3 – GM, Chrysler and Ford – are all revamping their outdated police interceptor and special service vehicles and your city will be buying them.

While Ford and GM are already making a lot of noise with their new police interceptors, Chrysler isn’t far behind with the new Dodge Charger Pursuit (one of my personal favorites). Today, Chrysler announced it will bring the Dodge Durango to serve cities across the United States.

Known as the Dodge Durango Special Service SUV, the model is specially designed to handle everyday use by police and fire departments and fleet customers. Chrysler is taking orders now, with deliveries to begin in the second quarter of 2012.

“We’re incredibly excited to add the Dodge Durango Special Service to our line-up of law enforcement vehicles,” said Peter Grady, Vice President of Network Development and Fleet Operations. “Adding Durango to our current Dodge Charger Pursuit and Ram 1500 Special Service vehicles allows us to offer a full range of fleet sedan, SUV, and truck options to law enforcement and government agencies.”

The Dodge Durango Special Service is powered by a 3.6 liter Pentastar V6 making 360-hp or an optional 5.7 liter HEMI V8.
