Designed and built right here in Australia, Chevrolet's new Caprice Police Patrol Vehicle (PPV) has made its television debut on the new TV supernatural thriller series, Touch.

The series, which stars 24 hero Kiefer Sutherland and Lethal Weapon's Danny Glover, debuted in the US earlier this year and hit Australian screens on the Ten network in April.

Two of the new Chevy PPV cop cruisers have been supplied to Fox for the series, decked out in the familiar NYPD livery.

The Holden Caprice-based patrol car has been available to US law enforcement agencies for sometime now, with deliveries beginning last year.

Holden says the car, which is built at the carmaker's South Australian plant and exported to the US, has been doing duty in police fleets for several months.

The big sedan is powered by GM's 6.0 litre V8, producing 265kW and 520Nm and utilising Active Fuel Management and the petrol- and E85 Ethanol-friendly FlexFuel system.

The Caprice PPV's rivals in the US include a version of Ford's 196kW all-wheel-drive Taurus and Dodge's 217kW Charger.

Chevrolet's new cop car beat out the Taurus and the Charger police vehicles in closely-contested government tests last year.
