The Dodge Durango’s engine has evolved quite a bit since the vehicle first hit the market in 1997. Before we had the 3.6-liter Pentastar V6 engine, we had several Magnum V8s and Corsair V8s included under the vehicle’s hood. As you’ll learn, these changes are certainly a good thing.

The Dodge Charger Will Continue to Change (and That’s Good)

hellcat-1

The first Dodge Charger was released back in 1964. While that model is certainly classic and beloved, we’d reckon that it couldn’t hold a candle to this year’s Charger, especially the Charger SRT Hellcat. Featuring an incredible, unprecedented engine and an intimidating, stylish design, the Hellcat version of the vehicle has been an absolute hit since its release a couple of years ago.

Luckily for us, the engineers weren’t content on rolling over the same design and features. While there are plenty of aspects that will remain the same (including one particular feature that’s sticking around due to fan support), the brand also revamped several of the features and capabilities.

Why the Police Love Driving the Dodge Charger

When the police look for a car, they need a serious piece of equipment. It has to accelerate rapidly, brake without delay, and hit top speeds well above those reached by normal drivers. And, most importantly, it needs to be able to take a serious beating – with hours of daily use and some seriously difficult driving ahead of it, any police cruiser needs to be durable enough to roll with any punches that might be thrown at it.

Many car companies recognize this need and market models specifically upgraded for police – and for law enforcement, this is a huge benefit. If you’ve seen a police officer driving around in a Dodge Charger in Miami recently, you’re not alone – police departments across the country have picked up on the power of the Charger Pursuit and taken it into the fold.
