    Probably Car and Driver's first Spotter's Guide. They haven't done one since the Charger took out the Crown Vic in 2011.

    At the end of 2016, the big Dodge was a (or The) primary patrol vehicle in 28 states, probably slightly higher now. The fact is, the Ford's and the Tahoe are FAR more expensive to purchase and operate (see the 2018 purchase guide I posted). Lousy fuel economy, lousy durability and reliability, and a reliance on personal preferences will become thorns in Brand F and Brand C's side in 2019, when Fleet will finally offer a Durango Pursuit to complement the Charger Pursuit.

    Back in the early eighties, I had a friend in the Air Force Reserve who was a police officer with the Seattle PD. He and his partner were driving a Dodge Omni patrol car when they arrested a guy who claimed the driver beat him while they were taking him to jail in handcuffs and belted in. My friend was driving, and he was charged with assault. He was a massive body builder, but a gentle giant, and his partner was also a very large guy. Their size, and that of the little four-door L-body, won them an acquittal when their lawyer brought an Omni into the courtroom and proved that with the two big cops sitting inside, neither could reach into the back seat far enough to hit anyone sitting there.
