2016 Pursuit, Frankfurt show: impressions

by David Zatz on

Patrick Rall and Karl3 have posted their personal, hands-on impressions of the 2016 Dodge Charger Pursuit car and FCA’s presence at the Frankfurt auto show, respectively.

The Charger Pursuit has a 12-inch screen hooked up to a laptop secured in the trunk, with an optional wireless laptop that can be stowed before a chase. In ordinary police cars, including prior Chargers, a laptop is usually mounted between driver and passenger, and poses a serious injury risk in a crash.

According to Detroit’s police chief, more policemen are killed in car crashes than by violent attackers, making Dodge’s upgrades important. Most police departments are moving to SUVs, but this, combined with making the center console narrower, may combat the trend.

The Frankfurt auto show is the largest in the world, and is held only once every two years.
