Florida Highway Patrol accepts Chargers

by David Zatz on

Florida Highway Patrol Dodge Charger police car

The Florida Highway Patrol has designated the Dodge Charger as a regular patrol vehicle, and is likely to slowly replace the Ford Crown Victoria, according to patrol car analyst Curtis Redgap. Redgap wrote that the FHP is likely to wait until the 2011 Michigan State Police test results (due in fall 2010) to judge the worth of the Chevrolet Caprice. This year, Dodge bid $20,999 to supply Chargers to the FHP, a far lower price than in the past, while Ford raised their Crown Victoria bid price.
