END OF WATCH: The 2023 Dodge Charger Pursuit is getting ready to return for one last tour!

Despite 2023 being the last year for the current-generation Dodge Charger, the Charger Pursuit returns for service.

As the last US police saloon to be offered on the market, the Charger Pursuit is available in two configurations (3.6-liter Pentastar V6 with AWD or 5.7-liter HEMI® V8 with RWD). Both power units are mated to 8-speed TorqueFlite automatic transmissions. All Charger Pursuit models come with standard column shifters with a selectable AutoStick feature.

With 300 horsepower and 264 lb.-ft. of torque, the Pentastar V6 with AWD offers agencies great all-round all-weather performance for both urban and rural patrols. While the 370hp HEMI V8 RWD models are perfectly suited for highway patrols and high speed interceptor fighters.

Pursuit models have an EPA fuel economy rating of 18 MPG city / 27 MPG highway for Pentastar models and 16 MPG city / 25 MPG highway on the HEMI.

5.7 liter (345 cubic inch) HEMI® V8. (Clever thing).
