Ford Police Interceptors victorious in recent tests by the Michigan State Police

Article by Christian A., on September 29, 2012

The Michigan State Police recently conducted testing and was quick to conclude that Ford Police Interceptors are the best there is. In the competition for the 0-60 mph, 0-80 mph and 0-100 mph acceleration categories, the top scorer was no other than the Police Interceptor sedan that had the 3.5-liter EcoBoost V6 engine.

Having fast closing-in speeds is vital for first responders and law enforcement professionals. During the testing at Grattan Raceway, the fastest single lap and best average lap times were achieved by the Ford Police Interceptor with EcoBoost V6 engine and all-wheel drive. Rivals that have the bigger V8 engines can’t match the superior advanced engineering of the Ford EcoBoost V6.

The purpose-built Police Interceptor is meant to do better than its competition by optimizing handling and control as well as by offering a combination of high-torque engine and strong brakes. Lisa Teed, Marketing manager for the Ford Police Interceptor program, said that the testing is proof of the Ford Police Interceptors’ status as industry leaders.

She said that they offer government agencies the ideal combination of “capability, technology and long-lasting value." The winner for the shortest stopping distance for all police vehicles tested is the .7-liter V6 all-wheel-drive sedan.

In the acceleration tests, the Police Interceptor all-wheel-drive utility vehicle set the record for the fastest 0-60 mph and 0-80 mph times. In addition, it got the quickest lap times compared to other police vehicles. The Police Interceptor utility vehicle performs like a sedan but it comes with a bigger interior package for agencies that need increased cargo capacity.
