I hate it. An absolute bastardization (is that the right word) of the Challenger brand. Want a 4wd - buy a Jeep.


The fact that they limit it to V6's tells me that the drivetrain is too weak to take any more power.

I agree on the limiting it to a v6, If Audi and others can do it then why not? But also as a jeep owner I still dig it for a daily in the snow.

The Charger Pursuit comes as an awd with the 5.7 Hemi and the old 5 speed transmission. Don't know if it's more durable for police work or better suited to Awd.

Suppose if they wanted they could adapt this to the Challenger.

All Pursuits come with the 5-speed, it's just cheaper and it works, cops really don't need the 8-speed and they do like the column shifter.

Is there anything more ANNOYING than watching a "video" that is mostly a series of still photos?
Perhaps there is.... a video that tells you absolutely nothing!

AWD and a supercharger sounds like a good time.
