Beating both sedans and SUVs, the 2020 Ford Interceptor Utility has become the quickest cop car in the American Police fleet.
The best-selling police vehicle in America has just got an upgrade and a proud achievement to flaunt. The 2020 Ford Interceptor Utility, which is based on the Ford Explorer SUV, is now the quickest and fastest cop car in the entire US police fleet. And that means, the bulky, burly SUV has beaten even sedans to claim that title.
Michigan State Police put the rookie to test and the new kid surprised everyone by posting fastest 0-60 mph and 0-100 mph times, along with fastest lap and fastest average lap. The EcoBoost-powered all-wheel-drive version of the 2020 Ford Interceptor Utility hammered even the V8-engined sedans in the fleet.
The standard hybrid 2020 Police Interceptor Utility was not far behind either, leaving V8-powered SUV units in the dust. It took home the title for 0-100 mph, fastest lap and fastest average lap. Not a bad day at all for the rookie in the academy.
The 2020 Ford Interceptor Utility EcoBoost version clocked a top speed of 150 mph and the hybrid version registered a top whack of 137 mph.
While EPA is yet to reveal the official fuel efficiency figures, Ford estimates place 24 mpg as the one to note. That’s a 40% improvement over the current line-up of Ford Interceptor Utility units serving in the police force. Calculations indicate at fuel cost savings of around $3,500 per vehicle, $126 million across the present fleet and 43 million gallons of fuel savings in total. All comparisons are with the Ford Interceptor Utility units which were sold to law enforcement authorities in 2017.
Ford has started accepting bookings for the 2020 Ford Police Interceptor Utility. These cop cars will begin hunting down law-breakers from summer 2019.
