2012 Ford Police Interceptor Concept Video
New 2012 Ford Police Interceptor Concept. Ford will release more info on the car by 2011 and it may replace the Crown Vic with this in 2012. Ford 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.

2012 Ford Focus design review with Designer Moray Callum
( http://www.TFLcar.com ) For 2012 Ford has completely redesigned the Focus. And unlike the old Focus, the new Focus is almost identical to the European car on which it is based. Check out this video as we speak with Ford Director of Design Moray Callum about the newly redesigned 2012 Ford Focus
2012 Ford Focus First Drive
There is now a followup video to this here:
We had the chance to head out to Los Angeles to drive the new 2012 Ford Focus in this hills and canyons of Malibu and the surrounding area. Ford is looking to completely take over the c-segment section of the market from Honda, Toyota and others. Chevy and Hyundai have new competitors in this market as well with the new Cruze and the Elantra which should keep everyone on their toes.
Have a look at our first impressions of the Focus and some pictures as well. Provided the Snowmageden coming later in the week doesn't postpone it, we should be getting a chance to drive the Elantra later in this week as well, should make for a nice back to back comparison.
