Configured specifically for law enforcement duties, the Chevrolet Impala Police Package contains a fair use of heavy-duty components. For 2006, the Impala Police Package was a heavily updated vehicle featuring all-new styling. Propelling the 2006 Impala Police Package model is a 3.9-liter 3900 Vortec V-6 engine. Generating 240 horsepower, the V-6 engine was tuned to deliver 90 percent of torque along a broad mid-level engine rev range.
Able to travel up to 135 miles per hour, acceleration to 60 miles per hour from a standstill was rated a time of 7.8 seconds. In 2007, the Vortec powerplant of the Impala Police Package added Active Fuel Management technology allowing the vehicle to achieve 22 miles per gallon fuel economy during combined city and highway driving. Engine power for the Chevrolet Impala Police Package was channeled through a four-speed automatic transaxle.
This police package sedan protected vital mechanicals with various additional cooler systems.
