Ford Launches New EcoBoost Police Sedan
With the cost of fuel continually on the rise, both drivers and manufacturers have been looking for ways to reduce fuel costs. Such a search isn’t limited to just the general public however as community service agencies across the United States have also begun to investigate and request vehicles that require a few less stops at the pump. Ford has proudly stepped up to the challenge to deliver such innovations for law enforcement by creating a fuel-sipping sedan featuring a cutting-edge 2.0-liter engine for the new EcoBoost police sedan.
The New EcoBoost Police Sedan Is Ready to Roll
Designed to meet the needs of detectives, administrators, campus police, and other law enforcement agencies, Ford has created a modified version of their Ford Taurus Police Interceptor, a sedan that generally delivers an already impressive mpg of 22 city/32 highway/26 combined when cruising along with the standard six-speed automatic transmission. This new sedan, however, is uniquely dubbed a non-pursuit-rated special service police sedan and will arrive loaded with a 2.0-liter EcoBoost as well as Active Grille Shutters that manage aerodynamics and engine cooling, a winning combination that produces best-in-class fuel efficiency.
The previous choice for non-pursuit police vehicles was the Crown Victoria that delivered an mpg of 14 city/21 highway/23 combined provided by its 4.6-liter V8 engine. The new 2.0-liter EcoBoost police sedan anticipates an mpg of 20 city/30 highway/23 combined. Given that such a vehicle is driven approximately 30,000 miles per year and gas prices currently at an average of about $3.65 per gallon, this EcoBoost special service police sedan is expected to save agencies $5,040.92 over a three year span.
The welcomed addition of the 2.0-litre EcoBoost motor brings more options to the forefront as police agencies search for the level of performance and fuel economy that meets their needs. Currently, choices available under the hood for the Ford Police Interceptor vehicle include a 3.5-litre V6 with front wheel drive, a 3.7-litre V6 with all-wheel-drive, and a powerful 3.5-litre EcoBoost with all-wheel-drive.
