New for 2017
  • Dodge Charger Pursuit leads in tactical technology with a laptop-size 12.1-inch touchscreen display that nearly integrates law enforcement systems and innovative Uconnect technology
  • Segment-first integration of law enforcement data systems with field-proven, easy-to-use and award-winning Uconnect touchscreen system
  • Designed for police use, Uconnect’s familiar and intuitive interface allows for quick toggling between vehicle controls and nearly every plug-and-play police-designed computer system that can be stowed in the trunk
  • Segment’s largest Uconnect 12.1-inch touchscreen built-in to Dodge Charger Pursuit’s instrument panel helps law enforcement officers keep their eyes on the road, and unlike third-party solutions that require a bulky console-mounted computer screen, does not obstruct front-driver and passenger air bags or interfere with occupant space
  • Engineered and tested to work with an officer wearing gloves, plus extreme operating conditions as low as -40°C and as hot as 85°C
  • Uconnect 12.1 is more than five times larger than Dodge Charger Pursuit’s standard Uconnect 5.0 system
  • For added upfit equipment control and capability, Uconnect 12.1 also provides Charger Pursuit with a fourth auxiliary button, making installation of upfit equipment easier, as the system is capable of providing the appropriate power, ground and fusing for a variety of LED, lighting, siren, computer, modem or camera systems
  • New Destroyer Gray “straight shade” exterior paint added to the lineup, while White Knuckle and Contusion Blue rename current production paint hues
  • Available Gross Vehicle Weight Rating (GVWR) to 5,450 pounds with 3.6-liter Pentastar V-6 engine
