Ford Police Interceptor Out For A Test Drive

The Ford Crown Victoria Interceptor will retire in 2011, leaving behind a legacy of protecting & serving even greater than Chevrolet’s Caprice model. Ford will release a fleet of new Police Interceptors in their attempt to fill the void left by the Crown Victoria.

Prior to their official debut, Dearborn pitted the Ford Interceptor against its rivals: the Chevrolet Tahoe and the Dodge Charger. The Blue Oval is releasing 2011 Taurus and 2011 Explorer versions of the Interceptor, with the Taurus getting either a V6 3.5-liter engine that cranks out 280 hp or a 3.5-liter EcoBoost that produces 365 hp; and the Interceptor getting a V6 3.7-liter Ti-VCT engine that churns 300 hp.

The company will offer the cars in both front and all-wheel drive, in comparison to the Crown Victoria which was only available with a rear-wheel drive.
