    How common various police cars in the US are is very much regional. The Taurus was a lot more popular in the North than in the South because it had AWD on the police package from day one (essential for winter), while the Charger was a lot more popular in the South. Older police cars as a whole are very rare in the Northeast due to how brutal the region is on vehicles due to the winter and road salt.

    All in all what you will probably see:
    Sedans:

    2019-2020 Ford Fusion - Incredibly rare. The Fusion was far too small to be a police car and it earned a horrible reputation with police due to this and was killed off entirely when Ford discontinued its sedan lineup completely.
    2013-2019 Taurus - Quite popular still but slowly being phased out due to being discontinued. More common in the Northeast than its competitors.
    2001-2011 Ford Crown Victoria - Most departments no longer use the iconic Crown Vic but there are quite a number that still do, usually in areas where they cannot afford new patrol cars.
    2011-2017 Chevrolet Caprice PPV - Not very common due to NAFTA regulations limiting their sale to a number of US law enforcement agencies as they were made in Australia (rebadged Holden Commodore). Many of those that do exist are slowly being retired from service.
    2006-2016 Chevrolet Impala - Not very common, many retired from service but some still exist
    2015+ Dodge Charger - Very common across many regions of the US, and also the only police package sedan still in production in the United States.
    2011-2014 Dodge Charger - Many still in service but slowly being phased out.
    2006-2010 Dodge Charger - Very rare at this point due to age, but some are still in service in a few areas.
    Much older examples - Some still do exist. Older generations of the Crown Vic are in service in very few places, same with the 90s 9C1 Chevrolet Caprice. One of my friends found what appeared to be a Chevrolet Lumina still in service in rural Kentucky at one point recently.

    SUVS:
    2020+ Ford Explorer - Introduced last year, but already very popular and quite common in many jurisdictions. Could very well become the most common police car in the US in the future.
    2018+ Ford Expedition - Quite rare but some departments use these.
    2021+ Chevrolet Tahoe - Introduced this year, somewhat rare due to being so recent. Will probably be common in the future but will likely still be behind the Explorer in popularity.
    2016-2019 Ford Explorer - Extremely common in many jurisdictions, and the most popular police vehicle in the US.
    2013-2015 Ford Explorer - Still in service in many areas but less common than the facelift due to being older
    2015-2020 Chevrolet Tahoe - In service in many areas but less popular than the explorer.
    2007-2014 Chevrolet Tahoe - Somewhat rare in many areas at this point due to most agencies retiring them but still in service in some areas.
    2010+ Dodge Durango - Less common than the Explorer and Tahoe, but present in many areas.
    Much older examples - Some still do exist. I know of at least one Sheriff's department in NC still using 2006 Explorers for instance.

    Shows that even cops are falling for the SUV/crossover craze. In my area, they use Rams and F150s for traffic patrol. Lots of people find this super wasteful, but they really don't care. A mid-sized hybrid sedan or crossover is more than enough for these guys, because they tend not to carry much equipment with them while patrolling. Don't get me started on the ridiculous unmarked cars, too. I see an equal amount of unmarked cruisers as I do marked ones. Nonetheless, the Roamer would really benefit from a SWB unmarked variant. Hopefully that'll be immanent.

    I would really love to see what I call a "shorty sporty" in game, a naturally aspirated, SWB-ish vehicle, I miss the days of dressing up the D-Series V8 Sport in police clothes and crashing it at 107 MPH :eek:. Back to speculation, the sedan would make for a great "Polizei" variant, as well as a UAE police car, as those are the only two countries I can think of that can realistically use an Audi (what we think the car is based on) as a cop car.

    The issue right now is that departments can only purchase the Charger as Ford and Chevrolet have discontinued all of their police package sedans, which isn't helped by the fact that the Charger is uh well, a Chrysler product. Much of this isn't exclusively the fault of cops either, it's the fact that American sedans as a whole are very unpopular in the consumer market and the car companies can't keep a car around exclusively for a police package.

    The other thing to note is that modern-day American police carry a TON of equipment nowadays due to the growing amount of things police are expected to deal with. I have no idea where you are getting the idea that they don't carry much at all.
    --- Post updated ---
    I really don't think that the new car is going to be German, as we already have two sporty modern German cars already (and if they wanted a modern German sports sedan an 800 Facelift + Sedan Body would work perfectly fine). And out of the two versions you mentioned, I take issue with the latter as I see zero benefit in adding a police vehicle for a country that has zero representation in game.

    Industrial site map is 1024x1024, but if you manage to get beyond driving area, you will see that its a lot more than 1024x1024.( I drove something like 7 - 10 min to get to edge of map) So maybe in future there will be some kind of map expansion to industrial side ?

    That's quite a cool find, seems like just PBR on the maps, and a tuned Pessima too, maybe dirt accumulation due to that Safari Bus being dirty?

    now I have a spuculation since we have the tograc a modern crossover and the new car seems to look like a sedan I have a couple ideas I belive there could possibly be a "shooting brake" variant of the car simmaller to the volkswagon arteon it has a sedan version and a shooting brake almost like a wagon I understand that there is no need for a German modern vehical but I can see similar headlights from the teaser today.

    When looking at Nadeox’s posts on his imgur I boticed something about the bus. Like, it being rear wheel steering and longer is probably a mod but it appears to have different tires, like more off road suitable ones. Can anyone else see that?

    Tbh I don't check on it all the time. just decided to look at it today. nothing like what happened around this time last year. Obviously, this is in the public sphere.





    Here's the screenshots that I could find that had something new in it. The bottom screenshot shows what the base model facelift H Series looks like.

    Weirdly the H series in the past screenshot doesn't have the opening side doors so it could have been taken earlier than the one in the video.
