Ah the pickup truck, usually the day to day vehicle of hard working men and… most rednecks, is just the sort of vehicle you’d expect to see on a high speed chase video.
The guys at Ram however have decided to spice up this same idea with a different sort of hue to it, why not have the pickup do the chasing?

With 390 horsepower and 407 pound-feet of torque at the disposal of the long arm of the law, the Police Ram 1500 would be quick enough yet it’s made quicker still by a 3.92 axle ratio.
Further law required mods have been fitted as the Ram 1500 now gets a massive bull bar at the front, perfect for any PIT maneuvers it may need to undertake and inside it was cluttered with all the gadgets cops usually need.
This means it’ll have a special radio, a siren, a license and registration checking computer and the must have row of lights on top, all of which rely on a 220 amp alternator to function properly.
Also in mind of protecting that equipment, as well as maybe the police officers, the doors get ballistic protection and their hinges are toughened up in order to take the strain.
