Introducing the next generation Police Interceptor from Gresham Ford Fleet

The all-new Ford Police Interceptor Sedan and Utility are projected to improve gas mileage as much as 20% from the Crown Victoria.  This isn't the only technological upgrade either.  There are three V6 engines available with 6-speed automatic transmission to achieve an optimum balance of horsepower  torque and fuel efficiency achieved through advanced technology.  Most importantly, these engines provide the pursuit rated performance law enforcement and first responders require to get the job done.

The Police Interceptor Sedan comes standard with a 3.5L V6 engine that produces 280 horsepower and 250lb ft of torque.  If you want more power upgrade to the 3.5L EcoBoost V6 that delivers 365 horsepower and 350 lb ft of torque.  It also features direct injection with twin turbochargers, there is no lag here.


To experience the all new Police Interceptor Line Up visit www.FordPoliceInterceptorTour.com .  The NW region will be gathering in Auburn Washington for this Ride & Drive opportunity open to the First Responder Community.  This is a fantastic opportunity to drive the vehicles and "kick the tires" with Factory Ford Motor Company experts at your finger tips.

You will be impressed by the Twin independent variable cam timing (Ti-VCT) which allows the camshafts to operate the intake valves and exhaust values at different times in the combustion cycle, based on speed and load.  The result is outstanding efficiency under low load conditions and remarkable power when accelerating.  The Direct Injection of the 3.5L EcoBoost V6 engine features direct injection, where each fuel injector is positioned to deliver a precise fuel spray directly into the combustion chamber during the intake strokes.

The twin turbochargers on the 3.5L EcoBoost V6 engine use energy from the engine's exhaust to "boost" the air going into the engine to generate power and torque.  And turbo lag is virtually eliminated.  When you drive you experience immediate response when stepping on the accelerator.  Each engine is built to rigorous standards, witht he goal of delivering exceptional performance.  Test engines spend hours upon hours running at peak power, testing overall strength and ensuring maximum performance in the wide range of driving conditions police face every day.  The NW First Responder Community is forced to deal with wet pavement, icy roads and lots of wind, the Police Interceptor makes all of that a little more tolerable.
