Video: Ford Police Interceptors Official Test Drive

Follow Viknesh



Ford’s aging Crown Victoria, loyal servant to police forces around the country for the past several decades, is soon to be replaced by a new generation of ‘cop cars’ such as the Carbon Motors E7, Chevrolet Caprice PPV and the Interceptor duo from Ford.

Presented here today is a series of videos detailing the opinions on the Ford duo--the Taurus sedan and Explorer SUV Police Interceptors--from the view of the actual service men and women who will be using them--the police forces of the U.S. and Canada.

The cars are put through their paces, with performance, handling and durability being the main criteria examined. For the test, the vehicles are also put through a series of competitive driving exercises against several of their main competitors, the Chevrolet Tahoe PPV and Dodge Charger Pursuit. See how they compare  below and then click here for full details on the Ford Taurus Police Interceptor, and here for info on the Ford Explorer Police Interceptor.

  1. I had no idea that the Charger or Tahoe were rear wheel drive. The videos are very interesting, it is good to see that Ford is building better vehicles.

  2. Fantastic news to see that there is a
    new generation of vehicles for Law
    Enforcement -- those people need
    every edge they can get to keep them
    SAFE AND ALIVE - since so many
    criminals now have tools and weapons
    that are illegal in almost every
    country in the western world EXCEPT
    (here in the) United States of
    America. Where cops are shot and
    killed for such minor infractions as
    giving a ticket for J-Walking [this is
    a fact, occured in Phoenix Az by an
    illegal immigrant].

  3. I hope Ford is considering putting some of this technology into their regular consumer vehicles as well. These officers were clearly talented, experienced drivers, and the new tech helped them immensely on the road courses with adverse conditions. Just think how much it would help an average person stay in control of their car while driving in rain or snow. I imagine a lot more accidents could be avoided...

  4. F*ck the police. They are emotionless robots of the state, financial means above all. These people dont need MORE power, they need LESS of it in every sense of the term. More cops are getting shot because MORE people are fed up with being treated like animals. They do not deserve new vehicles. Or guns. Or tasers. Or weapons grade mace. They deserve Azteks.

  6. Steve O and Saabaru5....I am quite certain that you won't have those feelings should someone in your family find themselves in a desperate situation in which their life or yours is on the line. People like you have no problem calling the police when YOU are in need. If you are unhappy, I would suggest you move to a country that does not have police protection so that you may live as you wish in Anarchy.
