At the Chicago Auto Show, Ford unveiled a new Police Interceptor Utility that will surely strike fear in the hearts of all criminals. Since 2012, law enforcement agencies have fallen in love with the utility version of the Interceptor for its versatility and capabilities.
“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, in a statement. “By listening to the Ford Police Advisory Board, we have engineered a vehicle that officers love.”
In addition to new front and rear designs, the 2016 Ford Police Interceptor Utility features new headlamps, a new instrument panel, an updated electrical system to better distribute electrical loads, and a remote liftgate release switch.
It will also come with the available Surveillance Mode, which monitors the rear of the vehicle and alerts the officer when someone is approaching from behind by locking the doors, rolling up the windows, and flashing the lights.
