Ford Pushes Fuel Economy with 2.0-liter EcoBoost Police Interceptor
September 20, 2013 9:25 AM
Special Service Police Sedan is aimed detectives and administrators
The truth is not every law enforcement officer needs a vehicle that is pursuit rated. For some administrative types or detectives, what they really need is a vehicle that is fuel-efficient to help reduce fuel expenses for the department. All of Ford's past police vehicles were specifically pursuit rated, including its new batch of EcoBoost-powered
Ford has announced that after requests from various law enforcement agencies it has created a new Special Service Police Sedan featuring a 2.0-liter EcoBoost engine that promises best-in-class fuel efficiency. Ford says that it specifically designed the vehicle to meet the needs of detectives, administrators, campus police, and law enforcement agencies looking for the best fuel efficiency possible.
Even though the 2.0-liter EcoBoost is a small engine, it still produces 240 hp and 270 pound-foot of torque. Ford says that in law enforcement trim the vehicle will be able to achieve 30 mpg or better in EPA highway ratings. The engine is mated with a standard six-speed automatic transmission.
The fuel savings potential is impressive for departments switching from the aging 4.6-liter V8 Crowd Victoria which is rated for only 17 MPG combined.
“Not every police officer needs a pursuit-rated vehicle,” said Jonathan Honeycutt, Ford police marketing manager. “As agencies look to replace older, V8-equipped cruisers with more efficient cars, Ford is at the ready with the most fuel-efficient – yet still very capable – full-size police vehicle.”
Ford says that while being more fuel efficient, the new special service vehicle will have all the safety and durability features the Ford uses in its existing interceptor sedans.
