While those of us residing the United States may feel the idea of a Chevrolet Cruze Police Patrol Vehicle is out of the question, the Cruze has actually become a popular choice for many countries around the world for various forces. Mexico, Russia and Malaysia all employ the Chevrolet Cruze for patrolling duties.
Now, Australia joins the ranks, with Victorian police debuting their latest edition to their fleet: the 2015 Holden Cruze PPV.
The Holden Cruze PPV is based on the Cruze SRi, boasting a 1.6-liter turbocharged four-cylinder engine, and producing 177 hp and 169 lb-ft of torque. The Holden Cruze PPV retains the Holden MyLink system with a seven-inch touchscreen display with Bluetooth capability.
Holden’s Executive Director – Sales, Peter Keley, said Holden had been working closely with Victoria Police to ensure we provided them with the right vehicle for the tough job.
“Cruze has all the attributes to make it an excellent patrol car. Its city-friendly size and power combined with its specific tuning for Australian roads ensures the police are in good hands,” said Mr Keley.
“We are very proud of our strong relationship with Victoria Police and are very confident these Holden vehicles will perform extremely well.”
