    I am not looking forward to seeing these in my rear view but I will rubberneck a bit longer when I see them on the side of the road.

    Ah, but how closely will they "police" the sales to make sure they're ONLY sold to law enforcement agencies (a la Carbon Motors)?
    Betcha sooner or later they issue some small number, like 5,000, that are all luxed out and sell for a high dollar figure. Think four-door sedan Corvette ZR1, but for $50K plus. They'll sell every one they make, plus huge halo effect.
    The cops won't likely pay that, however. They now get Crown Vics for, what, $20K each (then spend another $20K-plus to kit them out right)?

    sounds like the shift from pontiac to chevrolet will not fundamentally change things. hope i can outrun this version as i currently can outrun the potiac version on the road today :-)

    Can't wait to get one of these at auction. Too bad we'll have to wait 3-5 years before that starts to happen though.

    Rear wheel drive in the states where it snows?
    Just thought I'd ask.

    Right now running costs are everything for fleet managers. What does GM say about that?

    Its just another taurus or impala that they put the caprice name on, come on GM, be innovative

    Not bad but just another tease from GM and a slap in the face to all the G8/Commodore fans in the US.

    They should do police-car races, just for sports!

    The Greatest Police Car Ever has returned! Ford: You Snooze You Loose! Ford(That’s for killing the last real full frame American car line you should have redesigned it!)GM Please bring over the LTZ and SS models, make it a 1-2 punch take the Town Car’s Livery spot too! To make the stupid tree huggers happy just install the Tahoe Hybrid Drive train! Think about it PLEASE!!! you could have 25 even 30+ real full-size MPG bolt it to the 3.6L DIV6 and you’ll break 30mpg!! Before you know the best Chevy Passenger car label “CAPRICE” could be back on top of the sales charts! Next test run a Natural Gas powered version and you can combine high Hybrid millage with near zero emissions! You could make American look American again all while ending CAFE crap once and for all think about it Save the American True American size sedan for our children! (That mean more than 2033 length) Call it an American Tradition!!!

    I drive a 1989 Caprice. It's brown. ... It looks nothing like this.

    I agree carlo ford should have redesigned the crown vic and not introduce some rubbish replacement based on the Taurus. Sure the crown vic was old, but it got the job done and it always terrified criminals to see this lurking in their mirror. I hope that stupid new ford thing has a short life and the Charger and this Chevy take over. I cant wait to see the Ford Taurus thing vs Chevrolet caprice...should be a good one. Bottom line Ford BAD, GM GOOD!
