MSP: Charger performance back on top

by David Zatz on

The Michigan State Police have released the data from their tests of 2012 model year patrol cars, with stunning results for those who were dismayed by Dodge’s performance in last year’s tests. The Dodge Charger has shot back up again, beating even Ford’s turbocharged, all-wheel-drive, Volvo-based Taurus squad in acceleration and handling.

See the details in our 2012 model-year Michigan State Police car testing summary.
