September 26, 2013 , Auburn Hills, Mich. - Designed and engineered to be America's high-performance all-season police vehicle, the new 2014 Dodge Charger Pursuit AWD continues to build on the rear-wheel-drive model's performance legacy — achieving the fastest lap time ever recorded (1:33.85) for an all-wheel-drive test sedan — at Michigan State Police's (MSP) annual Police Vehicle Evaluation earlier this week at Grattan Raceway in Belding, Mich.

'With the record-holding rear-wheel drive Dodge Charger Pursuit and now the fastest-ever recorded all-wheel drive model, Chrysler Group offers those who protect and serve us with the best pursuit-rated sedans in the business,' said Peter Grady, Vice President of Network Development and Fleet, Chrysler Group LLC. 'And with the only test cars achieving lap times less than 1:34, Dodge Charger Pursuit highlights the segment's best combination of world-class technology, acceleration, braking, handling and dynamics.'

Most-advanced AWD System for Tactical Pursuit-rated Performance and Efficiency
The new 2014 Dodge Charger Pursuit AWD takes the lap record-holding rear-wheel drive (RWD) model's 370 horsepower HEMI® V-8 design and integrates the most advanced AWD system in the segment, delivering maximum all-weather traction and fuel-efficiency.

With its segment-exclusive active transfer case and front-axle-disconnect system, the new Dodge Charger Pursuit's AWD seamlessly transitions between RWD and AWD with no driver intervention.
