General Motors has delivered 23 2011 Caprice cop cars to the US. These are Australian built cars built by GM’s Holden brand and shipped to the states. The 23 delivered so far are non pursuit detective models with no word on how many more will be brought over or where they’ll be going. GM did confirm that pursuit models will far out weight the detective models in the very close future.
These aren’t econo box cruisers either. These late model patrol cars come packed with a 6.0L V8 pumping out 355hp and 384 lb-ft. Combined with a 6 speed auto these fully loaded cop cars hit 60mph in less than 6 seconds. GM will also be offering a V6 version but for patrol cars in pursuit, what cop would want that?
