Think about it the Traverse makes a lot more sense than a Crown Vic as a patrol vehicle - AWD - more room for customers - better mileage, haven't been in a Vic lately hno: but it might also be faster? And the handling is pretty good also.
that is possibly a scene response unit- or a supervisor unit.
It wouldnt be used as a pursuit vehicle...
Most likely to transport people to scenes (example- cadets to help with traffic flow)
transport gear etc.
