GM’s all-new police patrol vehicle, the 2011 Chevy Caprice PPV has started to be delivered to law enforcement officers all over the U.S. Georgia and Iowa are among the first to receive the Caprice patrol vehicle.
Forsyth County, Ga. Sheriff Ted Paxton stated, “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. We’ve had our vehicles for a month, and we’re sold. This will be a worthwhile investment.”
After the Caprice’s first month on patrol, Paxton’s office decided to replace its fleet of 175 other patrol vehicles with Caprice PPVs.
Dennis Hogan, Fleet Services manager in Cedar Rapids, Iowa stated, “We view the police vehicle as an extended office for our officers. 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.”
The Chevy Caprice PPC is powered by a 6.0L V8 with 355 horsepower and 384 lb-ft. of torque.
