Ford will introduce a new Police Interceptor patrol car on Friday, March 12. The new Interceptor is slated for a 2011 release as a 2012 model. Ford says the new Interceptors will be ready to go on time, and departments will not suffer any interruption in normal delivery times.
Speculation on the new Interceptor abounds, but Ford has been rather quiet about the specifics. Ford states they have been working “…on key vehicle attributes, such as safety, performance, durability, driver convenience and comfort.”
While competitors exist, the number one patrol car on the road today is the Ford Police Interceptor. In fact, Ford estimates 75% of the patrol cars on US streets are the current generation of Police Interceptor. However, with increased competition from other manufacturers, including start-up Carbon Motors, Ford has to continue to upgrade the line to remain competitive.
