Admittedly I’m not much of a car gal outside of basic operation and maintenance so I couldn’t tell you the difference between a Ford and a Dodge, or anything like that. As such, I was hoping to delve into a little more detail about the vehicles in a story I’m writing about. Wondering if someone could give me a hand with hammering out the specs, details, make/model, and etc with this. I don’t need a full manual on them, but a general description/place to start would be helpful.
The possible car(s) would belong to a fictional federal agency, so there’s room for leeway/fantasy elements though I’d like to keep it grounded in realism as much as possible. I’d like to possibly veer away from SUV as it seems a bit cliche but if it works it works. Ideally, perhaps something made in the USA (or a trustworthy other) that can handle fast speeds and a severe beating or two while still remaining intact. As it will be used in patrols, chases, etc. Modified with strong bordering on armored outside and bullet/shatter resistant windows. Inside, adequate trunk space to hold back-up weapons and emergency supplies but doesn’t need to hold a jetski.
Also, perhaps modified in a way to hold a prisoner or two, so perhaps closed off but still accessible backspace in case not carrying prisoners? Not a full on police style cage but perhaps handcuff slots or a window or sorts? Not sure on that.
And about tires. Not completely pop proof but is there a stronger tire that would be less resistant to blowing?
Also also, price range. There’s a good budget for the cars but say a million or more might be a bit excessive.
Apologize for the long description any help would be appreciated!
