Ford Police Interceptor
The Ford Police Interceptor Utility is probably a familiar sight to most drivers — the automaker claims 65 percent of police vehicles on U.S. roads are this Explorer-based vehicle. Now law enforcement will get a new ride as Ford introduces the all-new 2020 Ford Police Interceptor. The biggest news is that the new Police Interceptor comes with a hybrid all-wheel-drive powertrain as standard equipment. The police SUV’s hybrid technology is not simply about fuel economy. The new powertrain outperformed the older 3.7-liter V6 engine in nearly every test, including better acceleration to 100 mph by almost 5 seconds. Since the batteries are stored below the floor, the Police Interceptor loses no interior room or utility, and the lower center of gravity should improve overall handling.
