Pursuit models are great. They're excellently maintained by Government Agencies, and you can pick one up at the auction for far less than you'd expect to pay for a similar model at the dealership. The one thing that's painfully different about these cars is their mismatched interior. The front seats are cloth, and the rear seats are vinyl.
So how do you go about getting these seats to match? You could buy a cloth rear seat... But that's no fun. So here's some information how to install vinyl or leather seats (including SRT8 seats) in your Charger Pursuit Vehicle.

2008 - 2016 Dodge Challenger
What About Wiring?
As long as the seat you're purchasing doesn't have memory, all you need to power up the track is 12 volts and a ground! It's super simple and most car audio installers can add the circuit for under $100 per side.
This is a trickier setup. If your vehicle didn't come with heated seats, you'll need to add a new power circuit along with the heater control circuit.
Most LX body vehicles didn't have this feature. You can buy seats without them, and then either purchase the trim piece with the hole for the adjustments or simply custom-mount your switch to the new trim piece. As far as wiring goes the pedal adjustments usually have their own circuits, and worst case scenario it's an hour of crimping wires.
You may need to re-use some of your old safety sensors if your replacement seat doesn't have them. This would be the seatbelt sensor (what causes the "dinging"), and the "track position sensor". The track position sensor is two wires and usually separate from the rest of the harness.
If your seats have airbags, BUY SEATS WITH AIRBAGS!
