Chevrolet Caprice PPV



As much as the above image excited me, they aren't going to build it for you guys. For those who don't know, that's a Pontiac G8 dressed up in warpaint.

What you're getting instead is this:







Quote:
Announced at the International Association of Chiefs of Police convention in Colorado, the Caprice PPV will be available next year, with patrol use expected to begin in early 2011.

Rather than repurposing the Holden Commodore-based platform of the retired Pontiac G8, GM has built the Caprice PPV on the longer version of the Zeta platform which underpins the Holden Ute and Statesman.

The cars will be built in Australia at Holden’s assembly plant in Elizabeth, Australia, and could provide a significant increase in the plant’s output.

“North American law enforcement fleets account for about 70,000 sales a year so securing a fraction of those sales would be a major manufacturing boost for GM’s operations in Australia,” said Holden Executive Director Sales and Marketing, John Elsworth.

“Opportunities like this don’t come around very often,” he said.

“We are working hard to deliver a world class product worthy of serious consideration by the police.”

The 2011 Chevrolet Caprice PPV is powered by a 6.0 litre LS2 V8 engine developing 265kW and 520Nm of torque, paired with a six-speed automatic transmission.

By comparison, Dodge’s law enforcement version of the Charger develops 253kW, and the outgoing Ford Crown Victoria produces a significantly tamer 187kW.

The Caprice PPV will reach 60mph in under six seconds.

At 3001mm, the Caprice’s lengthened platform sits right between the Crown Victoria’s 2913mm and the Caprice PPV’s Dodge opponent, the 3048mm Charger.

As a law enforcement vehicle, the Caprice PPV will get a full range of police-specific equipment, along with 18-inch steel wheels and heavy-duty four-wheel independent suspension.

Other police-specific mechanical equipment includes a high-output alternator and engine oil, transmission and power steering coolers.

A “police-calibrated stability control system” will feature in the Caprice PPV’s equipment list

Ensuring the Caprice PPV gives away nothing to the legendary Crown Victoria, the new Chevy police car will offer significantly greater interior space, including an 100mm of leg space in the rear.

Other features include:

* Optional front-seat-only side curtain air bags allows a full-width rear-seat barrier for greater officer safety
* Two trunk-mounted batteries, with one of them dedicated to powering various police equipment
* Designed for five-passenger seating, meaning the upper-center section of the dashboard can be used for equipment mounting without the concern of air bag deployment interference
* Compatibility with in-dash touch-screen computer technology
* Special front seats designed for the long-term comfort of officers whose car is their effective office, including space that accommodates the bulk of a typical equipment belt

Re: Chevrolet Caprice PPV

That's not a ****ing Caprice!

It's like dumping ketchup on noodles and calling it spaghetti.

THIS is a Caprice.

Well they're practically the same car, different sheet metal and a 110mm longer wheelbase. If you had read the article (which by your response we know you haven't) then they state that they wanted the extra room that the long wheelbase version of the platform can provide. But I agree with you on your idea of american car companies. I mean, there's a good reason as to why GM and Dodge are in serious trouble right now, while Toyota and Honda (both of whom have multiple manufacturing plants in the US) aren't.

They have made something for the US market off the G8 platform. It's made in Canada and called the Camaro.

um dude i know ive had 3 Camaros and my current Trans Am.... and i thought the Camaro is not 100% built of the G8 platform ?...they are all Zeta platforms but i thought the Camaro is new/differant?

i meant i wanted them to build a 4 door BMW killer like the G8 was/is.... not talking bout a 2 door Coupe/Muscle car

p.s. i do want a new Camaro

Re: Chevrolet Caprice PPV

The only thing different about the current Camaro and the G8 is that one has 4 doors, and the 4 door is slightly longer.

But I agree, there needs to be a car like the G8 available in the US with appropriate badging. Pontiac wasn't the right badge for the car, though I'll admit that it's sold elsewhere as the Commodore SS-V (Australia) VXR8 (UK) and Lumina (Middle East) under various international umbrellas, and none of those names would suit it either.

Over here we have the entire model range, and the Commodore is available in everything from a base model 3.6L V6 to the Calais, which is a better value BMW 5 series essentially.

I wish they would just import the Commodores...i think they look sweet and most americans wouldnt even know its a GM which is prob a good thing.. if i got a GTO i think i would buy the Monaro bumpers and badges just to be differant
