2022 Ford Police Interceptor Sedan & SUVs: Everything You Need To Know

2022 Ford Police Interceptor Sedan & SUVs

If you've been hearing about the Ford Police Interceptor Utility and wanting to know more about what makes the 2022 Ford Police Interceptor the fastest cop car in America,1 you've come to the right place. As your local Ford dealer, we are proud to boast about the Ford Explorer Police Interceptor and what makes this Ford police car so impressive.

As police departments needed to switch from sedans to something more practical for their commercial vehicles, they turned to the Ford Motor Company to create a new Ford cop car that could keep up with the times and fleeing suspects. The Ford Interceptor Utility is based on the Ford Explorer, but this is not the Ford Explorer you typically see on the road.

The Ford Police Interceptor Utility is motivated by Ford's 3.0-liter EcoBoost V-6 engine that puts out 400 horsepower and 415 pound-feet of torque. The Ford Police Interceptor engine accelerates this police SUV from 0 to 60 mph in 5.5 seconds and will take our men and women in law enforcement from 0 to 100 mph in 13.5 seconds. Thanks to this upgraded powertrain, the Ford Police Interceptor Utility will reach a top speed of 148 mph in 1.6 miles.

Ford Police Interceptor Utility vs. Ford EVs

For comparison, the new all-electric 2022 Ford F-150 Lightning boasts 563 horsepower and will go from 0 to 60 mph in an estimated 4.5 seconds. There is also the possibility that the new Ford Mustang Mach-E will be the first electric vehicle to join a police car fleet. Stay tuned for updates on a police version of the new 2022 Mustang Mach-E GT.

A Ford Expedition Max SSV police vehicle also provides the tactical capability and off-road performance police departments need to protect and serve. Under the hood is a 3.5-liter V-6 EcoBoost engine that produces up to 400 horsepower and 480 pound-feet of torque.

Are you considering an all-electric vehicle or a new hybrid truck for sale? If you are, we'd be remiss if we didn't take a moment to highlight the 2022 Ford Maverick with a 2.5-liter hybrid powertrain, FLEXBED™ system, LED headlights, and plenty of tech.
