The Ford Crown Victoria, long time favorite for police cruisers when out of production last year, but current testing done by the Michigan State Police show that Ford is still producing the best vehicles on the market. The official results aren’t in yet for the 2013 year model vehicle tests, but Ford states that those tests will prove that the all new Taurus based Police Interceptor Sedan and Explorer based police Interceptor Utility outperforms other cars that are vying to gain the rigorous police duty first place.
“This year’s testing by the Michigan State Police once again proves Ford Police Interceptors are industry leaders, offering government agencies the desired combination of capability, technology and long-lasting value,” said Lisa Teed, Marketing manager for the Ford Police Interceptor program.
Bill Gubring, Ford Police Interceptor Chief Engineer adds, “We are very proud of the test results. During post-event inspection, the vehicles show proof of purpose-built durability,” he adds. “The status of the tires and brake pads still show useful life, and are ready for more grueling testing.”
The Police Interceptor sedan offers a 3.5 liter EcoBoost V6 that has the best 0 to 60 mile per hour, 0 to 80 mile per hour and 0 – 100 mile per hour times out of all the other police cars, even over the V8 sedans such as the Dodge Charger Pursuit and Chevy Caprice PPV. To bump it up a notch for 2013 the Ford sedan will offer a 3.7 liter V6 that has the best braking out of all other models. Of course the official results aren’t out yet, so this victory is not official for Ford, but it looks as if they are doing everything they can to remain the number one choice for our country’s finest.
