The testing has been completed, and it is time to begin production of the new Ford Taurus and Explorer Police Interceptor. Both the new Ford Taurus and Explorer Police Interceptor models just rolled of the production line at the Ford’s Chicago Assembly Plant.

Ford has begun producing the new Police Interceptor models a few months ago, which now accounted for about 60 percent of the orders so far. We will see deliveries of the new Police Interceptors to enforcement agencies in the coming months.

The Ford Taurus Police Interceptor is replacing the aging Crown Victoria police car. The new Ford Taurus Police Interceptor is not only more fuel efficient, it is more powerful as well. Power for the car is provided by a new twin-turbocharged, direct-injection 3.5-liter V6 engine producing 365 horsepower, which replaces the old 4.6-liter V8 engine found in the Crown Victoria. According to Ford, the new twin-turbocharged 3.5-liter V6 engine is about 20 percent more fuel efficient than the old V8 engine.

Ford is now controlled about 70 percent of the police car market share, and given the fact that it did well on the tests performed by the L.A. County Sheriff’s Department, Ford is confident that its Police Interceptors will remain on top for a while. Well, not if Chevy has anything to say about it with its new Caprice PPV and Tahoe law enforcement SUV.

Oh yes, we forgot to discuss the about the Ford Explorer Police Interceptor, but you can check it out in the related posts below.
