Chevrolet had recently announced its plans about the Chevrolet Caprice police car. The American car manufacturer seems to be particularly proud of this model which stems out of the fact that the new Chevrolet Caprice police car shall have more of interior space while the other reason is that the Chevrolet Caprice police car is the first-ever real wheel drive car since 1996. According to the automaker’s chief engineer, Al Oppenheiser, the Chevrolet’s Caprice police car comes with a smaller overall exterior. The chief engineer also maintained that the new super car has “more interior volume than a Crown Victoria.”
Chevrolet dealerships are likely to start accepting orders for the new Chevrolet Caprice police car from next month onwards. The initial cars, the unmarked sedans, are likely to be available from the April onwards. Automotive experts believe order books for the patrol cars are likely to be opened for new bookings in January. In addition, the delivery should commence in June. According to analysts, both of these cars are likely to be the 2011 models with prices slated to start at 30,995 US dollars. This price is likely to be the list price without any sort of fleet incentive discounts. Automotive experts are of the opinion that the GM’s Holden subsidiary will be assembling the Chevrolet Caprice police car in Australia. The police car will then be transported to a California port.
It is believed that the full-fledged production of the police car is likely to be at its peak in the 2012 model year. In the meantime, the automaker will commence the order processing and shall perform deliveries, which are likely to complete in over 14 to 16 weeks. The cars will have a warranty period of five years or alternatively, the warranty may be limited to 100,000 miles.
The Ford Crown Victoria had automatically become the top selling car post the original Caprice was taken out of the market. The police car is a rear wheel drive, which is more of an advantage for the law enforcement agencies. This is because the rear wheel drive offers better handling features, which are very useful in high-speed car chases. Chevrolet had made attempt to introduce a police version of the front drive Impala earlier in the past decade. However, the automaker was not successful in generating substantial demand for the police version of the front wheel drive Impala. The original Caprice remained the first choice of the law enforcement agencies.
