2012 Ford Police Interceptor - Dog Bone

Ford's All-New Police Interceptors Roll Off the Chicago Assembly Line, Purpose-Built to Protect and Serve Ford's all-new, purpose-built Police Interceptor began rolling off the line at the Chicago Assembly Plant in January 2012 The all-new Ford Police Interceptor sedan will offer two fuel-efficient powertrain options -- including EcoBoost™ with all-wheel drive -- along with an array of safety technologies and an interior designed to meet unique law enforcement needs The new Police Interceptor replaces the Crown Victoria, which ended production last year The next generation of Ford's venerable police vehicles began rolling off the line at the Chicago Assembly Plant earlier this year. Ford, the police vehicle market leader for more than 15 years, specifically designed and engineered an all-new Police Interceptor to handle the rigors of police work, including industry-leading powertrain, safety and technology innovations. The first vehicles finished production in January. For the first time, Ford also has added a second Police Interceptor to the lineup, a utility vehicle to provide customers a choice of the best vehicle to suit their needs. "Police nationwide asked for a new kind of weapon in the battle for public safety, and Ford is answering the call with a purpose-built vehicle -- engineered and built in America -- that's as dynamic as it is durable," said Lisa Teed, Police Interceptor marketing manager. To develop the all-new Police Interceptor, Ford engineers worked hand-in-hand with Ford's Police Advisory Board of law enforcement professionals, which provided input on key vehicle attributes such as safety, performance, durability, driver comfort and functionality. A focus on safety Building on Ford's safety leadership, the Police Interceptor is engineered to pass 75-mph rear-end crash testing. The new Police Interceptor also features Ford's exclusive Safety Canopy® side-curtain airbag rollover protection system to help protect front and rear outboard passengers in both rollover and side-impact crashes. The multiple side-curtain airbags use Ford's unique Roll Fold technology to help them slip between the occupant and the side window. Increased power, enhanced sophistication Ford's Police Interceptor engine strategy provides a V6 lineup that performs equal to or better than V8 engines. The lineup comes with two powertrain options, allowing police to choose the powerhouse that best meets their patrol requirements. A highly efficient 3.5-liter V6 engine delivering at least 263 horsepower and E85 compatibility is 25 percent more efficient than the outgoing 4.6-liter single-overhead-cam V8 it is replacing. Plus, the all-new 3.5-liter EcoBoost™ V6 twin-turbocharged, direct-injection engine will deliver at least 365 horsepower and 350 lb.-ft. of torque across a broad rpm range. "EcoBoost powertrain performance is optimized for closing speed and maximizing takedowns, thus preventing high-speed pursuits from even forming," said Bill Gubing, chief engineer for the Police Interceptors. EcoBoost brings municipalities and police fleet administrators the first ultra-high-performance, yet environmentally friendly, police pursuit vehicle. Offering performance that bests normally aspirated V8-powered police cruisers and comparable fuel economy and CO2 emissions to the standard V6, EcoBoost represents a triple win for police departments, the tax-paying constituents they serve and the environment they help collectively to preserve. A high-capacity six-speed SelectShift Automatic® transmission delivers the power of EcoBoost to the road via the sophisticated torque-sensing all-wheel-drive system, which is standard and unique to the Police Interceptor sedan and utility. "Ford remains committed to leading the police vehicle market, and our new Police Interceptor demonstrates how much engineering and innovation we're willing to invest to address the unique needs of those who protect and serve communities throughout America," Teed said. Rigorously tested, police-tuned Throughout its development, Ford's new Police Interceptor has been put through the paces, undergoing a battery of torture tests to ensure its individual components can hold up to the rigorous driving styles of police professionals.
