Ford Police Interceptor sedan keeps its title as quickest-accelerating pursuit vehicle

Article by Christian A., on December 1, 2014

Once again, the EcoBoost-powered Ford Police Interceptor managed to overtake the competition, V8-powered utility and V6-powered sedans. According to Ford, the preliminary results of Michigan State Police testing showed that the 2015 Ford Police Interceptor sedan equipped with all-wheel drive is the fastest-accelerating police car, as it managed to zoom from 0 to 60 mph (96 km/h) in 5.85 seconds.

Meanwhile, the competition’s 5.7-liter V8 sedan with all-wheel drive accelerates from 0 to 60 mph (96 km/h) in 6.31 seconds. What’s more interesting is that the Ford Police Interceptor sedan comes as standard with all-wheel drive, while the system is offered as an option on competing model.

Furthermore, the Ford Interceptor sedan topped a competing 6.0-liter V8-powered sedan, which accelerated from 0 to 60 mph (96 km/h) in 6.17 seconds. In addition, the Ford Police Interceptor sedan turned a 14.19 second 0-100 mph (160 km/h) time, while the competition’s 5.7-liter sedan posted 15.63 seconds and the 6.0-liter sedan took 14.69 seconds.

Ford Police Interceptor utility also proved to be faster than the competing utility vehicle as it accelerates from 0 to 60 mph (96 km/h) in 6.55 seconds and to 100 mph (160 km/h) in 16.13 seconds.

The competing utility vehicle using a 5.3-liter V8 posted a 0-60 mph time of 7.31 seconds and a 0-100 mph time of 18.99 seconds.

“We are thrilled to repeat as having best acceleration,” said Arie Groeneveld, Ford Taurus, Explorer and Police Interceptor chief engineer. “Quickly closing the distance between an officer and a target vehicle is key to safely avoiding high-speed pursuits. Our police vehicles are built around officer safety, and outstanding performance is yet another demonstration of that commitment.” [source: Ford]
