Deliveries of Chevrolet Caprice PPV in the US Started
|Topics: Chevrolet Caprice
The deliveries of the new Chevrolet Caprice to be used as police patrol vehicles in the US particularly in Forsyth County, Georgia and Cedar Rapids, Iowa have started recently.
These deliveries were not caused by the growing demand from car finders in the US. These are part of the police departments' change of vehicles used as patrol cars. Among the first to receive the first deliveries was the police department in Forsyth County in Georgia. These vehicles will replace their existing police car fleet which is composed of 175 vehicles.
Upon receiving the first delivery, Ted Paxton which is the sheriff of Forsyth County was very delighted saying "We've had our vehicles for a month, and we're sold. This will be a worthwhile investment" (Carscoop 2011). He even admired the capability of the Caprice stating that "With its emphasis on the ergonomically designed seats for officer comfort, and enhanced safety features, the Caprice is a vehicle that is made for police work" (Carscoop 2011).
The other recipient of the first round of deliveries was Cedar Rapids in Iowa. Just like the Forsyth County, this place plans to adopt the new vehicle model designated to replace their existing police car fleet.
The manager of the Fleet Services in Cedar Rapids which is Dennis Hogan was quoted saying "We view the police vehicle as an extended office for our officers" (Carscoop 2011) referring to the importance of PPV on their line of work.
When asked as to what made them chose the Caprice as their new PPVs, Hogan replied stating "We chose the Caprice, because it delivers optimal officer operational space, trunk and storage space, and generally provides our officers the most-suitable operating environment" (Carscoop 2011).
With these reactions from the early adopters, it is quite possible that the other police departments who would be receiving the Caprice on the next round of deliveries would surely feel the same way that Hogan and Paxton has felt.
The Caprice could possibly become an ideal PPV since it is powered by a 6liter V8 engine that produces 335 horsepower and 384 lb-ft of torque. With this engine capacity, the Caprice is indeed as strong vehicle suitable for high-speed chase and for pursuing lawless elements on the run.
A 3.6liter V6 version of the Caprice with a direct injection system will soon be launched and included on Chevy's new car prices list. This would probably be offered as a subject vehicle in US. However, GM has not yet announced its release date and the auto financing deals offered for this model.
