Press Kit: 2020 Dodge Charger Pursuit

2020 Dodge Charger Pursuit Fact Sheet

Auburn Hills, Mich. September 1, 2019 - The Dodge Charger Pursuit is the best-selling law enforcement sedan on the road today, and for 2020, Dodge underscores its commitment to the Pursuit-rated sedan segment as it brings the fuel-efficient TorqueFlite eight-speed transmission to the Charger Pursuit, replacing the outgoing five-speed transmission.
 
Also, for 2020, the Charger Pursuit continues to offer the exclusive, no-cost Officer Protection Package. This package is designed to provide officers with rear vision and enhanced officer safety when parked and working inside their vehicle. When activated, the rear-facing camera and sensors detect movement behind the vehicle, automatically sending images to the vehicle’s Uconnect interactive touchscreen, and any or all of the following can be programmed to occur: alert chimes sound, reverse lights and taillamps flash, windows roll up and all doors lock.
 
The available Uconnect 12.1-inch display integrates law enforcement systems and innovative technology to improve safety and occupant space. In addition to the pursuit-rated hardware that includes 370 best-in-class horsepower and factory-installed Mopar upfit packages, Charger Pursuit offers the segment’s most advanced all-wheel-drive (AWD) system for maximum tactical performance, all-weather traction and fuel efficiency.

Highlights:
  • Standard Uconnect 7-inch display and rear camera
  • Back Camera View is a standard feature on the 7-inch display, which activates the rear camera and lets officers see behind the vehicle while driving or stationary
  • Available at no cost on the Charger Pursuit, the Officer Protection Package is designed to increase an officer’s situational awareness when parked and working inside the vehicle, using the Charger Pursuit’s ParkSense rear park assist system, ParkView rear backup camera and Rear Cross Path detection to alert an officer if anyone is behind the vehicle
  • Available Fleet Safety Group includes Blind-spot Monitoring and Rear Cross Path detection
  • Charger Pursuit V-8 and V-8 AWD models deliver 370 best-in-class horsepower
  •  Charger Pursuit V-8 AWD model includes the segment’s most technologically advanced AWD system with a segment-exclusive active transfer case and front-axle disconnect system to improve real-world fuel economy
  • Pursuit-rated hardware: performance-tuned suspension, load-leveling NIVOMAT shocks,
  • 14.5-inch front and 13.8-inch rear pursuit-rated brake package, front and rear stabilizer bars,
  • 18-inch performance tires on steel wheels and two-mode electronic stability control (ESC)
  • Styling for Charger Pursuit draws on Charger’s late-1960s heritage, while infusing an aggressive and visually lightened look with sleek styling
  • Ballistic door panels for driver and passenger doors (Protection: NIJ Level III+) are just one of the many factory-installed Mopar upfit equipment items that include a three-year/36,000-mile warranty
  • Up to an EPA-estimated 26 miles per gallon (mpg) highway with aluminum 3.6-liter Pentastar
  • V-6 engine with 292 horsepower, 260 lb.-ft. of torque and available E-85 flex-fuel capability
  • Charger Pursuit leads in tactical technology with a laptop-size 12.1-inch touchscreen display that integrates law enforcement systems into the Uconnect touchscreen system, allowing for quick toggling between vehicle controls and nearly every police-designed computer system that can be stowed in the trunk
  • 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 driver and front passenger air bags or interfere with occupant space
  •  For added upfit equipment control and capability, the available Uconnect 12.1-inch display also provides Charger Pursuit with a fourth auxiliary button, making installation of upfit equipment easier
  • Charger Pursuit’s Uconnect systems are engineered and tested to work with an officer wearing gloves, plus extreme operating conditions as low as -40 degrees Celsius and as hot as 85 degrees Celsius
  • Available Gross Vehicle Weight Rating (GVWR) of 5,450 pounds with 3.6-liter Pentastar V-6 engine
  • Driver-focused cockpit is designed to be a mobile command center with world-class materials, police-duty upgrades and state-of-the-art technologies
  • For added convenience, the steering wheel includes re-mappable auxiliary buttons that can be programmed to operate aftermarket police equipment
