2013 Ford F-150 receives Special Service Vehicle Package

Article by Christian A., on June 13, 2012

Fire rescue and law enforcement fleets are the target of a new F-150 Special Service Vehicle (SSV) package from Ford. Ford Government Sales Manager Tony Gratson said that the company has received requests from its fleet customers to make this option for F-Series trucks. He thinks that those in the government would like its current and updated 2013 F-150 equipped with the SSV Package, especially those with rugged jobs like in law enforcement, firefighting, and national and state park patrols.

The trucks are designed to be versatile so that they would meet the requirements of individual agencies. They’re available with a no-cost SSV option that includes a 220-amp alternator to meet heavy-duty electrical demands. Furthermore, Ford offers no option restrictions on the vehicles. The package is offered on both SuperCab and SuperCrew configurations in either rear-wheel or four-wheel drive systems.

Cloth is used to upholster the front seats while the rears use a durable vinyl, which is better for crew transport and law enforcement. It won’t have a center console so that there would be more space for equipment storage or firearms installations. Ford is making these vehicles available in either 5.0-liter V8 or 3.5-liter EcoBoost V6. However, the fact that the V6 is more powerful and efficient makes this a no-brainer.
