may add this to there lineup of police cars with the new Taurus. The car
includes a powered clamshell "shaker" hood, which covers the engine. The
fullsize sedan is based on a stretched version of the rear wheel drive Mustang's Ford D2C platform,
featuring a solid rear axle. The body is proportioned with short front
overhang and a long rear overhang, and features a low roof line and a high
belt line, when compared to other Ford sedans like the Ford Taurus, with a
wedged profile. The Interceptor incorporates a four-point "belt and
suspenders" harness seat belt design in the front and rear seats, with
inflatable safety belts for rear seat passengers. The four-point belt
represents a possible next-generation safety belt system that is designed
to be more comfortable and easier to use than traditional three-point
belts. The dash, headliner, steering wheel, and four low-back bucket seats
are wrapped in leather.
