The Chevrolet Caprice Police Pursuit Vehicle (PPV) might call itself the Caprice, but it’s really the Holden Commodore. We first saw the Commodore in the U.S. as the Pontiac G8, and now there’s the police version wearing a Chevy badge.
We are not exactly sure why GM decided to turn the Australian import into a police car, but we are not going to complain about the existence of more rear-wheel-drive sedans packing V8s.
Still, as the latest video from Regular Car Reviews points out, you have to wonder what the appeal of the used one is. Yes, compared to the G8, the Caprice’s suspension has been beefed up, the platform has been stretched.
And yes, it’s got the V8. But the interior is sparse at best, the parts are expensive, few people are going to have any idea what you are driving.
Then again, maybe that’s the point. The Caprice the car you really have to want. You have to want it enough to skip over G8 GT and the Chevrolet SS. And if that’s the vehicle you want, you won’t vehicle that it doesn’t have widespread appeal. It’s not the car for other people. It’s for you, that’s all that matters.
