I'm really confused why U.S.A police departments always use Ford Crown Victoria, Ford Mustang, Dodge Charger SRT8 and Dodge Challenger?

You will understand my mean, If you see this video.

As what you saw, racers have high-speed cars and succeed to escape from cops, which have same Ford's & Dodges and lost racers.

I don't want to contempt to those cop cars, but I want to know why they don't use high-speed cars like McLaren, Saleen or Koenigsegg to getting them, so easier?

Simply put PRICE. There is a old group from the 1920's known as the Low Priced 3 (Ford,Dodge,Chevy) that police always usually stuck to although there were exceptions, Lincoln,Cadillac,Plymouth,Chrysler,Lesalle,Buick,and Packard were also used as well as Nash,Hudson,Rambler/AMC (later Nash and Hudson would merge to the AMC/Rambler) and Pontiac and Oldsmobile have all been used one time or another but the low priced 3 was Ford,Dodge,and Chevy. Ford inventing the flat head V8 was always more popular for police needing to chase alot but for big city cops long luxurious cars could be used sometimes.

Hope that helps.

Duquoin uses a few Ford CrownVics and the rest is a mix of newer and older model Dodge Chargers,Chevy Impalas, and the newer Ford Explorer police truck..The new Truck and Chargers have slightly diffrent markings from the older cars but like them they are also black&white but unlike them they do not have a police badge with a Indian head in the center, The new stuff just has the Indian head no badge.

The Crown Victorias were popular because they were cheap and reliable. For normal police work, cars don't need to be fast. Police cars are getting faster. Dodge Chargers are low-price, but they are also fast; 0 to 100 km/h in under 6 seconds. A Koenigsegg is not even an option, because they cost more than $1,000,000 each.

The New Zealand Police usually use V6 Holden Commodores for the same reason, although they can't catch up to serious speeders (and they always stop the pursuit as soon as the speeders start driving dangerously). Police cars are bought with taxpayer money, so price is more important to the Police than build quality or horsepower.

Besides, those supercar chases are very rare in real life. For most chases, Chargers are fine. Here's a video of a more common police chase:



The truck in the video reached 200 km/h during the chase, but the cops still caught up.

I'm still wondering why does Dubai Police Force have the most expensive cars in the world like Veyron and CCX, when there are not happened any crimes?
And which cop cars can be supercharged?

Because they can afford them. They didn't buy them to catch speeders (because drivers don't speed there); they bought them to show off.

^Yep.... they like showing off. I had some family members that lived in Qatar and they went to Dubai and the fact is..... SPEEDING TICKETS, they are etrememly expensive there literaly upwards of thousands of dollars. so no one in there right mind speeds there.
