There are currently two variants of the 2012 Dodge Charger Pursuit: One model features a 292-horsepower, 3.6-liter Pentastar V-6 engine, while the other packs a massive 5.7-liter HEMI V-8 engine, producing 370 horsepower and 390 lb.-ft. of torque. This is no joke. In fact, the 2012 Dodge Charger Pursuit V-8 actually set the fastest lap ever recorded for any vehicle at the Grattan Raceway during the annual Police Vehicle Evaluation test.
"Achieving the fastest-ever lap time at the Michigan State Police's annual Police Vehicle Evaluation test reflects the mission of the Dodge Charger Pursuit Team to equip our law enforcement officials with the absolute best combination of vehicle performance and tactical equipment," said Peter Grady, Vice President of Network Development and Fleet, Chrysler Group LLC.1
So, speed demons in the greater Hopkins area may want to think twice the next time before they decide foolishly trying to outrun the V-8 model.
Key in attaining this new record is the 2012 Dodge Charger Pursuit V-8 acceleration time. As you also may imagine, this factor is even more crucial when in hot pursuit of a suspect. It makes sense then that Dodge would boast about the incredible acceleration times that the 2012 Dodge Charger Pursuit V-8 features, which includes the following:? 0-to-60 mph (5.83 sec)
? 0-to-70 mph (7.38 sec)
? 0-to-80 mph (9.18 sec)
? 0-to-90 mph (11.43 sec)
? 0-to-100 mph (13.65 sec)
