explorers seem to be the big hit. price wise when our town was looking earlier this year, the fords were a better option at the cheaper price. if I recall, the explorer was cheaper than the charger we priced out. we bought the explorer, and use it for truck enforcement mostly.

That's a good looking machine. It actually looks purposeful without all the chrome trimming and useless nonsense.
What's the rear suspension on that? Needless to say in the BP we did a lot of minor (sometimes major) off-roading in our cruisers even. That's why our Chargers SUCKED. The independent suspension etc. would get whacked out of alignment the second you hit some bumps. The crown vics would just keep going without needing to run to the shop.
My local cops are using a decrepit CV, a Charger, a Dodge SUV thing ( name escapees me for some reason) and an F150 extended cab. Winter use also includes a M1009 ex military Blazer. Hodgepodge of junk mostly. They mostly just creep around town leering at HS girls anyway.
My friend is a officer in Ba-Wü and said the B6 Passats they had for the last few years drove better though
http://www.mercedes-seite.de/baureih.../#.UHLzJ7e9Kc0Von Mercedes-Benz werden insgesamt 1.517 Einsatzfahrzeuge geleast, davon zum ersten Mal 1.094 Mercedes-Benz E-Klasse 220 CDI T als silber-blaue Streifenfahrzeuge. Baden-Württemberg ist das erste Bundesland, das für die Polizei die neue E-Klasse in der Kombi-Version beschafft hat. Die restlichen 423 Pkw sind neutrale Mercedes-Benz C 220 CDI.
My locals, and the local State Troopers are still on the Crown Vic with the new LED light bars. (They're pretty bright!) The local Campus police have a few Impalas with the old old light bar. (It looks weird, they should switch to the new LED light bar.)
I think the locals have a few SUVs/Explorers here and there. But I mostly see the Crown Vics.
Kinda makes me wonder when they'll switch over to something new. Our town aint exactly hurting for cash I don't think.
Ogden City cops drive chargers/exploders/F150s/CV and have been rolling out a ton of the new SHO to replace the charger/CV.
Weber County Sheriffs tend to drive F250s.
And UHP drives chargers and F250s mainly. Though their undercover cars come in a large variety.
Wyoming HP all drive Tahoes and new Chargers. Those taillights can be seen for miles on I-80 at night
Here its a bunch of vehicles (CV, Tahoes, Chargers, Impalas, Expeditions)

I see a ton of Chargers around here.
I wish that everyone would just switch to Carbon Motors police cars when they're available!
I really wish everyone would update their location in their profile!
Someone buy my car already!!
Always looking for free firewood to feed my hungry wood stove!
