Good Luck Getting Away From Florida Highway Patrol’s Dodge Challenger

The Florida Highway Patrol (FHP) has added a new model to its flet: the 2019 Dodge Challenger. It features the mandatory two-tone livery and decals, as all other patrol cars.

In a FHP Jacksonville tweet, some of the features of the muscle car have been brought forward. More specifically, it comes with the 360-degree camera system and new lighting package, which adds emergency lights, although the example pictured in the gallery below lacks them.

They have also revealed the power unit, which is the 5.7-liter, HEMI V8. The engine produces 375 hp (380 PS / 280 kW) and 410 lb-ft (555 Nm) of torque and can be connected to a standard six-speed manual or an optional eight-speed automatic transmission in the 2019 Challenger R/T, which has a $34,100 MSRP.

The output is more than sufficient for most, but there are far more powerful versions of the Challenger out there. You can get the 485 hp, 6.4-liter V8 R/T Scat Pack or spend more and opt for the SRT Hellcat, with its 717 HP, 6.2-liter supercharged V8.

However, it’s the SRT Hellcat Redeye you’ll want to check out closer if you’re in dire need of more power, as its V8 develops 797 hp. It needs only 3.4 seconds to accelerate to 60 mph (96 km/h), has a 203 mph (326 km/h) top speed and can run the quarter mile in 10.8 seconds, at 131 mph (210 km/h).

Maybe if FHP wants to catch those new ‘Vettes that are bound to roam the highways in droves (relatively speaking, of course), they should consider those variants for their next purchase.
