Dodge fixes specs, upgrades police-edition Charger

by David Zatz on

Dodge has re-released its power figures on the 2009 Dodge Charger squad cars, raising the specifications to 368 horsepower and 390 lb-ft of torque. The gearing has reportedly been modified for better gas mileage, currently rated at 16 city, 25 highway, with cylinder deactivation; acceleration should be similar to the 2008 models. Numerous engine improvements were designed to increase durability, while the brakes have again been modified for longer life in police service.

David Zatz founded Allpar in 1998 (based on a site he had begun in 1993-94), after years of writing reviews for retail trades. He has been quoted by the New York Times, the Daily Telegraph, the Detroit News, and USA Today. Before making Allpar a full-time career, he was a consultant in organizational psychology.
