Are V6 Chargers good cop cars?

my uncle is a cop and over here in Canada in my province they use the 2015-2019 Dodge Charger SXT as their main pursuit police car.

I had the priviledge of driving my friends SXT and I can tell you it is fast, but is it able to catch or even keep up with cars on the road such as V8 F150's or V8 Mustangs? how about V12 Jaguars?

Over here there are a lot of Type R's which are 4 cylinder turbo charged not sure if the SXT can keep up with it.

My uncles co worker was saying they should upgrade to the V8 model but its not in the budget

    Many police departments have adopted pretty conservative pursuit policies, the V6 may actually be a factor keeping pursuits in check.

    The police rarely engage in high-speed pursuit above 160 kph because it endangers the general public. A car with the capability of the SXT is completely adequate

    Top speed of that car is 220 kph. The top speed of any F150 is 170 kph. No one can outrun a radio

    No, they need lots of maintenance.

    Nothing beats a radio and the Jag V12 mention gave me a laugh, a crook would be lucky to get it started.
