GM presented yesterday the new PPV (Police Patrol Vehicle) Chevrolet Caprice that will debut in 2011 in police North American departments. The sedan rear-drive will have a 2 engines choice with specialized features and equipment.
The vehicle will run with a V8 6.0-liter engine having savings of fuel Active Fuel Management plus the capability E85. A 2nd option, a V6 model, will be offered too beginning with car year 2012.
The configuration of V8 makes 355 horsepower plus torque of 384 lb-ft and is fitted to a 6-speed auto transmission tweaked specifically for the police work.
Jim Campbell, GM Fleet, Commercial Operations' general manager. 'The new Chevrolet Caprice police car is the right tool at the right time for law enforcement. We asked for a lot of feedback from our police customers, which helped us develop a vehicle that is superior to the Crown Victoria in key areas'.
Brent Dewar - Vice President, Global Chevrolet Brand continued 'Along with Impala and Tahoe, the Caprice PPV gives agencies a greater range of choices for police and special service vehicles that are all available from Chevrolet'.
Other options: 2 trunk-mounted batteries good for police equipment, it's compatible with touch-screen in-dash devices, special seats on front providing comfort on a long-term to officers plus front-seat-only (optional) side airbags curtain.
The lead seat manager of design - Bob Demick said 'The Chevrolet Caprice PPV’s seats represent a revolution in comfort and utility for officers who spend long hours in their car. The shape also enhances entry and egress, making it easier for officers to exit the vehicle quickly. The seatback bolsters, for example, have been purposefully contoured to help pocket the equipment on the belt, which includes the gun, Taser and handcuffs, which rest comfortably in the sculpted lower bolsters. That also increases the longevity of the trim cover surface'.
