Dodge Magnum3.5-liter High Output V6 engine on the newest model of the Magnum has 250 horsepower and 250 lb-ft. of torque, not bad for a wagon. Dodge introduced the car as a police vehicle to give departments as another rear-wheel-drive vehicle.
It lacks body-on-frame construction, but the Hemi is an option for departments that want to take advantage of the powerful engine.
Dodge also made several law enforcement specific changes, such as steering-column mounted shifter and driver controlled windows and locks.
It also includes heavy-duty versions of the suspension system, alternator, battery and brakes as well as read-to-go electrical wiring for officers. It shares performance accolades with the Dodge Charger and can handle the hard miles of police work.
