Speeders Beware: The 5.0-Liter Coyote Engine Will Migrate To Ford’s Newest Cop Car


Ford just gave police cadets another reason to be excited to graduate.

While companies like Chevrolet and Dodge make cops cars, Ford has always been the dominant supplier of American police transportation. After the Crown Victoria-based Police Interceptor, Ford introduced a dynamic duo of police cars by means of the Taurus and Explorer-based (new) Police Interceptors. Apparently this isn’t enough because Ford has just unveiled the newest addition to the Interceptor family in the form of its most profitable vehicle ever, the F-150 pickup truck.

To help cops have a higher level of capability when pulling duty Ford has added a number of modifications to this special F-150. A 240-amp alternator replaces the generator in the stock truck to power additional lights, sirens, and computers. Other modifications include an easy-clean vinyl rear bench and flooring to make cleaning messes easier while a removed center console makes room for bulky police computers or shotguns. Just like the regular F-150, the Police Special Service Vehicle comes in many outfits including SuperCrew or SuperCab configurations with both 4x4 and 4x2 available. Efficiency or power can be prioritized with both a 3.5-liter EcoBoost V6 bringing plenty of torque to the table or the 5.0-liter Coyote V8.

The truck should offer quite a bit of extra utility because depending on the guise, it can hold five people and carry plenty of equipment in the back. As of now Ford doesn’t offer the infamous hidden light bar or the cool bulletproof doors that the two Interceptors have, but depending on the truck’s popularity it wouldn’t be far-fetched to see those options migrate to the aluminum-bodied truck. The spacious and capable new pickup should be appreciated by all law enforcement, human and canine types alike, something Ford included in the photo brochure. Spirited drivers: If you see an F-150 with a light rack while speeding, just know you have been warned.
