Dodge to Offer Mopar Packages on New 2012 Charger Pursuit

By -

2012-Dodge-pursuit-1.jpgDodge and Mopar are in hot pursuit of police car sales with six all-new quality-tested and factory-installed police-equipment packages for the high-performance 2012 Dodge Charger Pursuit. Vehicles are ready-for-duty right from the manufacturer.


“Mopar is adding even more value to our all-new 2012 Dodge Charger
Pursuit,” said Pietro Gorlier, President and CEO of Mopar — Chrysler
Group LLC’s service, parts and customer-care brand. “We are adding
proven, quality-tested tactical equipment to this pursuit vehicle and
creating a one-stop shop for police customers. With six quick-order
packages, police departments have the ability to customize their
vehicles to exact specifications.”

To enhance Dodge Charger Pursuit’s world-class levels of technology,
safety, handling and efficient power, Mopar teamed up with
industry-equipment leader Crown North America to develop six police
packages that are designed to provide law-enforcement officers with the
best combination of tactical equipment and performance. These
police-equipment packages feature emergency lighting, audible warning
and communications and safety equipment. Industry-leading suppliers
involved in the development include Whelen Engineering, Setina
Manufacturing and Havis, Inc.

“With rear-wheel drive, best-in-class V-8 power, seven air bags and up
to 27 miles per gallon during highway cruising, the Dodge Charger
Pursuit is an excellent police car on its own merits,” said Reid
Bigland, President and CEO, Dodge Brand — Chrysler Group LLC. “Our
partnership with Mopar to produce these six police packages takes the
car to the next level by allowing our customers to customize their
cruisers to meet their specific needs.”

2012-dodge-pursuit-2.jpgMopar conducted extensive testing to ensure that its police upfit
equipment met and exceeded the heavy-duty durability-cycle tests
requirements of the new 2012 Dodge Charger Pursuit.

“Our new packages simplify the police-vehicle order and upfit process,”
said Peter Grady,Vice President, Network Development and Fleet —
Chrysler Group LLC. “With Mopar police equipment, we can deliver quality
turn-key police vehicles in a predictable order-to-delivery time.”

The base police prep package for the 2012 Dodge Charger Pursuit includes the following:

Emergency Equipment Electrical System Wire Harness: Capable of providing
the appropriate power, ground, and fusing for a variety LED, lighting,
siren, computer, modem, radar or camera systems. The wire harness
integrates with both the Vehicle Systems Interference Module (VSIM)
24-way connector and the 12-pin connector that Chrysler Group provides
at the console.

Power Distribution Center (PDC): Contains the fusing and relays for
circuits contained in the wire harness. The PDC is supplied from the
battery with two 100-amp main fuses. These fuses are separated in order
to accommodate departments that wish to control some circuits with a
timing device. For installers who want to use timer systems to prevent
power drains on the battery, the PDC will accept the device’s output and
channel it to the usual elements controlled by timers, including
camera, computer, modem and printer systems.

Slide-out Trunk Tray: Provides a stable, easily accessible platform from
which the installer can position and install electrical equipment. The
trunk tray provides a 37.5-inch by 19-inch mounting surface for
electrical and communications gear. Locking slides provide the movement,
allowing a technician easier access to equipment mounted to the tray.
An industry-first integral ground buss bar helps eliminate poor
grounding, the most common equipment issue. The tray is adjustable and
allows for a variety of equipment heights and needs.

Trunk Air-circulation Fan: Stabilizes trunk temperature in a relatively
short period of time, helping all trunk-mounted electronic equipment to
function properly by circulating heated or cooled air from the driver’s
compartment into the trunk area.

Siren Speaker: Provides a 100-watt siren driver that is certified to
meet SAE Class A and California Title XIII requirements when matched
with an appropriate siren amplifier. Given that the system is mounted
behind the grille, the look of the vehicle remains clean, while the
siren location does not impact engine cooling.

harness, power distribution center, siren speaker with bracket, trunk
tray and trunk cooling fan
