Dubai police using Dodge Charger police cars

Dubai Police Dodge Charger
It is a slow news day today, just like the crime statistics in the safe city of Dubai. The jails are filled with loan dodgers and disgruntled labourers rather than murderers and mafia dons, and we figured we’d highlight the Dubai Police’s latest weapon in their fight against crime – the Dodge Charger.

The Dodge Charger police package comes with the choice of either a 250 3.5-litre V6 or a 340 hp 5.7-litre V8, both mated to a 5-speed automatic gearbox and a rear-wheel-drive platform.

The police package adds a slim roof-mounted light bar, bull bars front and back, and a spot light on the A-pillar, alongside with a police computer and a siren of course.

Externally, it is impossible to tell which engine resides under the bonnet of the Charger police car, as all badging is deleted and the wheels are standardised for all models. It is possible that the V6 has been chosen, if only for cost reasons.

The Charger may still be in the evaluation phase, as the Dubai police dabbles in various types of cars to join the ranks of their fleet that currently consists of Toyota Fortuner, Nissan Xterra, BMW 530i and Mercedes-Benz C-Class marked cars, while phasing out older models.

    It’s a V8 as it has twin exhausts cause I think the V6 comes with only one exhaust….

    just FYI. I have been seeing the Dodge Charger police car in the streets since January 2008.. i think it was only one car or maybe two.

    I used to see it every morning on Jumairah when I used to run on the beach back in 2008.

    noticed that the email and website address on the back of the car is not visible thanks to the bull bar obstructing it.

    No big deal mashy…the bahrain police have been driving the chargers for quite some time now – and they do not have that much money as the guys in the UAE.My wife and myself got pulled over in bahrain but one of em – reason – cause she was driving at the speed limit (nobody does that) and they suspected her to not having a license :lol:

    The cake though is taken by the police here in Qatar.Check out the link of the lambo police car.Although with our fines of AED 6,000 for breaking red signals – they should be buying bugatti’s!!! :smile:

    The Charger is built in Canada along with the Chrysler 300C and Dodge Challenger.

    Yeah the Bahrain Police are the first to drive Chargers as police cars in the Middle East… and later followed by Lebanon.

    but in Lebanon the policemen who are driving chargers are just racing each other…

    I spoke to one of the cops in Abu Dhabi (they have the Charger police car there for a while) and they told me that they are V8s with some minor modifications.

    I seriously doubt they would have made “modifications” to the engine…probably the computers and car tracking instrumentation.

    Either case – interesting read :razz:

    Engines are never modified in any factory police package, except for extra cooling aids.

    You are correct! Twin exhaust, 5.7L V8. 3.5L remains single exhaust.

    Very nice in those police colours. I hope to see them on the road soon. Now I can race them (or is that escape from them?) in my own Dodge Charger.
