In the recent instrumented acceleration testing done by the Michigan State Police, the Ford EcoBoost-powered Police Interceptor sedan managed to overtake the Chevrolet Caprice V8 and the Hemi Dodge Charger. Meanwhile, the Ford Police Interceptor utility powered by an EcoBoost engine as well took on the V8-powered Chevrolet Tahoe.

The 2014 Ford Police Interceptor sedan offered with standard all-wheel drive managed to sprint from 0 to 60 mph (96 km/h) in 5.66 seconds, while the 5.7-liter Hemi-powered Dodge Charger with optional all-wheel drive managed to sprint to 60 in 6.04 seconds. Moreover, the 6.0-liter V8-equipped Chevrolet Caprice clocked a 6.01-second 0-60 mph time. In the 0-100 mph testing, the Ford Police Interceptor reached 100 mph in 13.5 seconds, while the Dodge Charger posted 14.70 seconds and Chevrolet Caprice in 14.35 seconds.

Regarding the other vehicle, the new Ford Police Interceptor 3.5-liter EcoBoost-powered utility vehicle left rivals in the dust. In the 0-60 mph testing, the Ford Police Interceptor utility with standard all-wheel drive accelerated to 60 mph in just 6.28 seconds, while in the 0-100 mph testing it needed only 15.51 seconds. The 5.3-liter V8-powered Chevrolet Tahoe posted a 0-60 mph time of 8.22 seconds and reached 100 mph in 21.95 seconds. [source: Ford]
