Think twice criminals: the new Ford Police Interceptor recently debuted at the Chicago Auto Show. This new model features the latest in technology and performance, and it looks incredible too. Some people might even be tempted to break the law just for a chance to ride in the back seat.
According to Ford, the 2016 Ford Police Interceptor Utility has already captured 55% of the market, meaning it’s quickly becoming the next standard police SUV. The new model was specially designed with our men and women in blue in mind. A board consisting of 25 experts from law enforcement helped critique the design as it was made.
“Our Police Interceptor Utility is the best-selling police vehicle in America because we have a unique relationship with our customers,” said Jonathan Honeycutt, Ford North American marketing manager for Police Vehicles. “By listening to the Ford Police Advisory Board, we have engineered a vehicle that officers love.”
The Police Interceptor Utility comes standard with a 3.7-liter V6 that cranks our 304 hp and 279 lb-ft of torque. An EcoBoost V6 is also being made available for departments that want to be as eco-friendly as possible. With a unique Pursuit Mode and off-road capabilities, this is one SUV you don’t want on your tail.
