Default Chrysler 300 SRT Tipped To Replace Holden Commodore SS For Australian Police Forces

May 23, 2017

The Chevrolet SS sedan is dead. The unloved sport sedan exited production earlier this year and the SS sedans remaining on dealership lots remain the last of the breed. The Holden VF Commodore has awhile longer, but not by much—the locally assembled Commodore will exit production this October.

With its demise, Australian police forces, which have used locally-built Commodores and the already extinct Ford Falcon for decades, need to replace their aging police vehicles. The Chrysler 300 SRT is tipped to be a frontrunner.

Previously, the BMW 5-Series, Kia Stinger and Volvo were said to be under consideration by Australian police, but Drive reports Fiat Chrysler is gunning hard for the contract. The Dodge Charger, after all, has become a very popular option with police departments across the United States. So, FCA knows a thing about building police cruisers.

What about Holden? GM’s Australian subsidiary has gone on the record to state it will build the Opel Insignia Grand Sport-based Commodore in police guise, but it appears to have gone unloved by departments, per this new report.

Police in New South Wales, Australia have taken delivery of a Chrysler 300 SRT police cruiser, though, it’s simply a show vehicle—for now. A source has told Drive it’s “a done deal” with regards to the 300 SRT becoming the defacto police cruiser.

The 300 SRT is no longer available in the U.S., but it has soldiered on in Australia. Down under, it’s powered by a 6.4-liter Hemi V8 engine producing 469 horsepower. Should the deal officially be inked, the 300 SRT will become the most powerful patrol vehicle ever employed by Australian police.
