Well yesterday i was driving past the police station and I caught a glimpse of the towns new police car. It is a brand new Chevy Impala with the V8(im guessing on the V8). It didnt have any graphics on it yet but it had a light bar on the roof. Also in Platteville (a town right next to ours) they already have a new Dodge Charger police car. I am glad our town got the Impala because there are too many Crown Vics and the Impala will stick out even better in traffic. Anyone else got a new cop car in their town?
I guarantee it is not a V8. They are only offering the 3.9L V6 in the police package for now. The only package they sell to the police is the LTZ package and that has the 3.9L V6. I think they were having some kind of problems with the V8.

Actually DevilsReject, the Impala SS is getting worse fuel mileage than the Charger. I know what the EPA says but they are extremely inaccurate and have been for years. Let me give you some examples from Road and Track. The Pontiac Grand Prix GXP (Pontiacs version of the Impala SS) got 15.8 mpg. The Charger R/T they tested in 1/06 they got 18.0 mpg, the 300C got 18.3 mpg, the 300C SRT8 got 16.0. They got better mileage with a HEMI that didn't have MDS than they did with the GM Displacement-on-Demand. I have read other magazines getting similar results with the SRT's mileage in comparison to the SS and GXP, but it has been consistent been much better with the MDS 5.7L vs. the GM 5.3 DOD system with all the articles I have read.

Like i said i was guessing. But anyway how much power does that 3.9 put out compared to the V8. Cause i know the V8 makes 303 so what does the V6 make?
