Ford Scares Us All with New Police Interceptor

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.”

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.

New 2016 Ford Police Interceptor Gets Debut at Chicago Auto Show

Of the many vehicles getting their world debut at the Chicago Auto Show this week, a certain model from Ford will definitely stand out – with flashing lights. Ford’s 2016 Police Interceptor SUV, which is based on the Explorer, will be on display this week at the show.

The new Police Interceptor has the Explorer Sport trim at its foundation, meaning it will be able to hit 60 mph in just about six seconds, thanks to a 3.5-liter EcoBoost V6 engine that produces 365 horsepower – at the least.

One would imagine that the official police version would have a bit of an upgrade on the commercial model. The vehicle is slated to go on sale this summer, a good few months after its debut. Until then, you’ll have plenty of time to research the vehicle, which someday might be seen in your rearview mirror.

The Chicago Auto Show will take place from Feb. 14-22, during which time the new 2016 Ford Police Interceptor will be on display.  Be sure to stop by Highway Ford today, to hear any more news from the Chicago Auto Show!
