Focusing the Police car stake, the American car manufacturing company has unveiled the Police Interceptor variant of the Taurus and Police Interceptor variant of the Explorer. The Taurus is a sedan, while the Explorer is a Sport Utility Vehicle.
"Agencies tell us if the bad guys see the police vehicle quickly close in pursuit, they're less likely to try to run. If this can help reduce the number of high-speed chases, then we could improve public safety on our nation's roads," said Bill Gubing, a Ford chief engineer.
The turbocharged Tarus based Police Interceptor sedan is powered by a 3.5-liter EcoBoost V6 engine. It takes only 5.66 seconds to clock 0-60 mph with All Wheel Drive and the same in 5.71 seconds in Front Wheel Drive. Meanwhile, the other fast moving machines, Chevrolet Caprice needs 6.01 seconds and Dodge Charger requires 6.04 seconds to clock 60 mph from standstill.
On the other hand, the Explorer based utility Police Interceptor can speed 0-60 mph in just 6.28 seconds and 100 mph in 15.51 seconds powered with its EcoBoost engine as the Chevrolet Tahoe needs 8.22 seconds and 21.95 seconds to clock 0-60 mph and 0-100 mph.
The tests were done by Michigan State Police.
They are modified Taurs and Explorer.
