UDPATE: Check out the followup videos: Quirks Fixed!: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1C7lbGeyOiE Police Connectors & Audio Mixing: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=km-xwapjawU Installing lights and antennas: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hrs5jgiB0ng I made this video to show some of the quirks that you will have to deal with if you are a civilian (non law enforcement) looking to purchase a Ford Police Interceptor Utility. The one in the video is a 2016 base model, no options. Yes we all get that I say umm a lot. No need to have every other comment complaining about it. My later videos I started editing them out. FAQ - FAQ - FAQ - FAQ - FAQ - FAQ - FAQ - FAQ No I'm not a cop. Yes there is a reason I purchased this vehicle: because it was cheap, and it had room for ham radios. No I am not trying to impersonate the police. No I am not complaining about the quirks (they have all been remedied in the next video) Yes I am very happy with the vehicle No a retail Explorer would not have been better as it has no room for radios. Yes it's cheaper than a regular explorer. I paid $24,500. Base explorers start at $32k Yes I could talk slower and say more uhhhs. But do you really want me to do that? Yes I understand why these quirks/features are there. You don't need to explain it. I'm merely pointing them out to people that may not know they were there if they bought the vehicle. No it does not have ballistic panels. But it is an available option. No I will not put a pushbar, or teardrop lights on it. I have no need for either.
