PRLog - Nov. 14, 2011 - MIAMI LAKES, Fla. -- Over the year’s we have seen different brands and models. From Ford’s to Chevy, in 2012 we are expected to once again see on our streets the Chevrolet Caprice PPV, fully redesigned and better than ever. gets a V8 that puts power down at the rear wheels and has plenty of space for both cops and perps. It sits on a stretched version of the Zeta platform that underpinned the now-discontinued Pontiac G8. Miami Lakes Automall as the top Chevy dealer in Miami is proud to know that Police everywhere will be driving the number one vehicle in America.
The first thing officers will notice on the road is that the car feels lighter than its 4,160-pound curb weight. That's due in part to the 355-hp, 6.0-liter V8, but also because of the police-spec suspension that includes heavy-duty shocks, upgraded springs and thicker stabilizer bars. The Caprice PPV exhibits minimal body roll in corners, and any oversteer is easily balanced with well-weighted steering. Inducing oversteer in the Caprice is made easier with GM's programming of the traction and stability control system. With a touch of a button, the system allows some wheelspin and yaw before stability control intervenes.
The system can't be fully deactivated--police officials told Chevy that's how they wanted it. There have already been a few cases of overzealous officers turning off the safety devices and introducing cruisers to walls. But at least the Caprice PPV can dig itself out of a snow pile if necessary.Chevy also added something called PAL, which stands for performance algorithm left foot. PAL puts the PPV's engine and transmission in a performance mode. When activated, the computer will keep the revs in the sweet spot of the powerband. It works best when braking into a corner, but it's useful in any situation where a little motivation is needed.
The PPV made quick work of the small cone course GM set up at its proving grounds. The track included a slalom section, quick lane change, an acceleration lane and a panic stop.Now, panic stop would probably be a misnomer in this case, because while there was plenty of stop, there wasn't much panic at all. The Caprice has disc brakes at all four corners, measuring almost 14 inches in front and 13 inches in back. A hard stomp on the left pedal and a sturdy hand on the wheel easily brought the cruiser to rest. As important as performance is, the officer will spend most of his or her time in the cockpit. The Caprice PPV has all the requisite spaces for computers, display screens, radios and radar devices.
The seats are made of high-wear, low-friction cloth with extra softness in back where the equipment belt sits. The seats are flatter and wider than regular seats to accommodate a gun holster, and they have a quick-adjustment lever in addition to eight-way power adjustments.
