What's better than spy photos of a new police-spec Dodge Charger? This first photo of the once-Ram-headed-brand's new entry into the world of law enforcement vehicles — the 2011 Dodge Charger Pursuit.

The original Dodge Charger Pursuit is an aggressive, V8-powered hound dog menacing criminals and speeders from Bangor to Burbank. The redesign shows off the new Charger's meaner grill work and a two-tone getup highlighting the new character lines aft of the front doors.

This new Pursuit edition is getting heavy-duty anti-lock vented disc-brakes, stabilizer bars front-and-rear, and a hot set of 18-inch steel wheels. Keeping the new Charger from Starsky & Hutch-ing too much, the beast's kept in check with a two-mode Electronic Stability Control designed for high-speed chases. As with the previous generation, the autostick is column-mounted to make room for the big open space where municipalities can mount their equipment.


Most importantly, the new Charger Pursuit will come with a 3.6-liter flex-fuel Pentastar V-6 and a fear-inducing 5.7-liter V8. We can't wait to pit this against the new 2012 Ford Police Interceptor and Chevy Caprice PPV.
