Correct but after the batch they have it will be Chargers. Here is the Interceptor setup

I think Charger is #1 followed not too far behind Interceptor in my book, if I had to pick. Never Chevy.

But what about this Chevy product?

A two door for a police vehicle?

That means you would need a second vehicle to transport a prisoner. Also a lot less room in the event of a crash.

This looks like someone at Chevy gave them the vehicle to evaluate. I would love to hear the comments

Not to evaluate, we had many in service, on patrol. The last Camaro's were phased out around 2008 or so.

I wish the SP would bring back the Camaro or something sporty, I do miss them.

Hope they work out better for the troopers than they have for Syracuse PD. The ones here are all squeaking, rattling, and clanging their way around the city after only a few years on the road.

Anybody know when we will start seeing more Chargers?? I don't see many around Upstate New York, its mostly still the old Crowns. The Charger should be a good choice.

All the new cars down here (Savannah area) are either Chargers or the Ford SUV's.

Has the visibility from the Chargers improved? I know our PD was not impressed with theirs and switched to the Fords?

Hi, it does look like the visibility has improved on the new style Chargers, I have heard that the Ford and Chevy are cramped, the Charger is bigger and has more room in the car.

I've been seeing a lot of Ford Explorers lately....seems they're pretty popular with the cops. Anyone have first hand experience?

At our Troop E substations in Lyons and Williamson NY, they are still running a lot of Chevrolet Tahoes, a couple of Crown Victorias, both have the new Ford Tauruses and Williamson has a new Dodge Charger. I see a lot of the Dodge Chargers on the NY State Thruway.

I've had the chance to sit in a loaded out Explorer Interceptor. It's surprisingly spacious for fitting a size between a sedan or a tahoe. The officers in my area that drive them, love them. I suppose it really comes down to how the units are set up. Regardless, they have become quite popular around here and many other areas surrounding here in Texas. They're quick, and agile, while being spacious and since they don't sit as low as the charger, taurus, or capris, it's been easier to get in and out of. Thats most of the comments that I've gathered.

Hi, are we sure the New York State Police have chosen the Charger as their new car?? I am seeing mostly new Ford Tauruses around the Rochester area and Route 104 East of Rochester, seems like the Chargers are only on the New York State Thruway. Has anybody even seen a 2015 Dodge Charger with the new front end??

I haven't seen any new 2015 cars around this area (Troop F).

Right now it looks like they are running mostly Tahoes and CVPIs with some 2013-2014 Chargers mixed in

Looks like NYSP also use the Caprice and the dodge durango. Anyone with firsthand experience like these vehicles? The Durango looks pretty sweet, I think it is like a beefed up utility but by dodge...

This one was sent to the NYSP, it doesn't have the decals yet. I think it was a test vehicle, but I don't know if NYSP adopted it. Anybody out there have an
idea?

We have a few Durangos at work. I'm not a fan. Huge blind spots, and the shifter is a dial the size of an air conditioning or stereo volume knob. 

I'll stick with the Suburbans or Ford Police Utility.

I love the new "Ghosted" cars.

Is it just me, or are the Crown Victorias a lighter blue than the tahoes, chargers, and utlities

I saw what looked like an unmarked black explorer on  i87 in Westchester the other day..It could have been a new " phantom car" since a " ghost is white".   Maybe the troopers are making a comeback to unmarked....In a way..

On a partially related note - and while I moved out of NY a long time ago, I am back semi-regularly - I saw a NYSP Taurus (Ford PI sedan) at LGA, and it appeared to be a REALLY dark blue or Black.  looking through these pics - I see several shades on relatively recent vehicles from multiple manufacturers.  Are they no longer standardizes on the old "Sunoco" blue?  are the darker cars for certain units?
