The Chevrolet Caprice PPV (Police Pursuit Vehicle) will be no more when Holden manufacturing goes idle for good later this year, and there will not be a direct replacement for the rear-wheel drive, Zeta-based sedan.
The Caprice PPV was introduced in the North American market for 2011 and has been sold to fleets in small numbers since. Like the retail passenger car market, many fleets have moved towards crossovers and utility vehicles for their latest police cruisers.
For now, it’s up in the air as to what Chevrolet plans to offer for local police forces across the country other than the Tahoe PPV.
The Caprice’s demise was first reported here in 2014, as Holden stated it “didn’t see” a future replacement on the horizon.
