The all new and redesigned Police Interceptor will soon begin plant production. The first responder community has warmly received this all new all wheel drive option. Many fleet managers are also favoring the large percentage of interchangable parts between the sedan and utility models; and the parts are just the first of many aspects that Ford has considering in efforts to reduce the overall expense of maintaining a first responder fleet of vehicles.

Our new Police Interceptors will be going into production shortly and will be shipping from the plant early next year. I am aware that our competition has been very present with the law enforcement agencies by providing demos and drive experiences. Sinceour new model cycle plan was based around the freshening of the 2013MY Taurus, we will soon have production units available for dealer demos and a number of first quarter drive events.
