Ford intercept police with new Taurus-based sedan



LAS VEGAS // Ford revealed its all-new, purpose-built, Taurus-based Police Interceptor sedan last week, showcasing a car for law enforcement officials to replace the industry's leading police car, the Ford Crown Victoria. Ford, the police vehicle market leader for 15 years, specifically designed and engineered the all-new Police Interceptor to handle the rigours of police work, including industry-leading power train, safety and technology innovations. Ford will also add a second Police Interceptor to the line-up, a utility vehicle to provide customers a choice of the best vehicle to suit their needs. "Police nationwide asked for a new kind of weapon in the battle for public safety, and Ford is answering the call with a purpose-built vehicle - engineered and built in America - that's as dynamic as it is durable," said Mark Fields, Ford president of The Americas.
