The Ram 1500 Special Service Vehicle used by U.S. police along with SUVs, crossovers and pickups and Ram 1500 SSV was not available for public since 2012 due to law enforcement. The SSV starts out as a Ram 1500 unit compartment with four-wheel steer and 5.7-liter Hemi V-8 energy. So, no exclusive policeman motor for outdragging Hellcats, but at 395 horsepower, the Hemi’s no incompetent. It has the same four-wheel disc brakes, coil-spring mixture no air springs, hydraulically raised energy riding, and dense-duty cooling as on the civil V-8 truck.
The SSV version adds 100,000-mile initiate spark plugs and a high-capacity lub air-conditioned to act with expanded periods of idling. It also features an enormous (220 amp) generator from the stop/commence enabled Ram HFE, as well as an improved equipping supports and energy arrangement area with two 100-amp fused circuits to regulate the enormous electrical loads of lights, sirens, machines, broadcastings, radar weapons, and cameras. Our experiment truck also had the elective abbreviated 3.92:1 final-steer ratio for good low-speed attractiveness, plus elective on-/off-road tires because the evil men don’t always fasten to the pavement. Six speed automatic transmission from the bare-bones 1500 Tradesman version replaces the ZF eight-speed unit found in most other Ram trucks.
Inside the hollow 125-cubic-foot unit-compartment, the 1500 SSV gets a few more squeezes. Law enforcement can be untidy, so the front rooms are stain-resistant cloth vessels, and back seat visitors are interacted to an accessible all-group hose-it-out seat to accompany the truck’s hose-it-out group flooring. The rear framework is —no slider crystal back there to invite a swift opening. A convict column-mounted translation room replaces the dash-mounted rotary projection, and the plant console is removed to make area for an all-alloy upfitter unit that dwellings the regulate ability for the lights, siren, and other policeman substance, such as knockabout laptops. A testified meter eliminates qualities of belief about how swift you were riding , while two meters observe engine running hours and how many of those have increased while idling. The front door structures have beefed-up resedas to regulate the increased mass of any ballistic worldly that may be increased later. And the SSV is accessible with a set of lockable RamBox retention containers alongside the supplied for long weapons, first-aid cases, and other needs.
From this component, the SSV is produced by upfitters matching to the specs of single collection-enforcement agencies. Our experiment car was supplied with $5880 including the same all-alloy Havis VS-series policeman console ($614), Whelen CenCom Carbide lights and siren regulate ability ($1429) and roof light room ($3077), and a setina PB 450-L push bumper ($760). In full wheel, the SSV could also have a back-seat structure surface/framework, rear framework defenders, and some category of gun attaching system.
