Chrysler’s Ram Trucks announced a Special Service package for the Ram 1500 CrewCab 4×4, which offers special equipment to support police and other emergency services.
This scary Police truck is powered by a 390 horsepower and 407 lb.-ft. of torque 5.7 liter HEMI V8, so its relatively fast and is also capable of towing 10,000 lbs of stuff. It also has a payload of 1,455 lbs. and a GCWR of 15,500 lbs.
The car also gets 100,000-mile sparkplugs and a larger oil cooler to protect the engine during the unforgiving stop-and-go operations associated with first responders. To handle the high electric loads, the Ram 1500 Special Service Truck includes a 220-amp alternator. A unique wire harness is capable of providing power, ground and fusing for a variety of law enforcement lighting, siren, computer, modem, radar or camera systems.
The package also includes a Power Distribution Center (PDC) with fusing and relays for circuits contained in the wire harness. The PDC is supplied from the battery with two separate 100-amp main fuses for camera, computer, modem and printer systems.
Other features include a certified speedometer with engine hour and idle hour meter, a 110-volt inverte, a full-face steering wheel, four key fobs and ten-way power front seats which quickly accommodate multiple drivers.
With this and the Dodge Charger Pursuit, Chrysler has really done its part to improve social security!
