Nobody will dare tailgate you in this thing.
Instead of being jealous of the upgrades found in police vehicles, go for this 2015 Ford Police Interceptor and enjoy the benefits firsthand. While it looks a lot like a regular Ford Explorer, this ride is more durable, and it has some unique styling to set it apart from civilian vehicles. Streetside Classics brings us this rare and value-laden SUV which will surely put a smile on your face.
While most cop cars are anything but beauties, this Ford Police Interceptor is actually quite nice. Deep blue paint has been surprisingly well-preserved. 20-inch bright aluminum factory wheels instead of plaint steelies are a nice addition. But the dark tinted windows, black billet grille, and the Police Interceptor badges give off just enough of an aggressive edge for everyone to provide a wide berth as you’re driving down the highway.
You’ll find the interior is quite nice, thanks to amenities like air conditioning, power windows, power locks, cruise control, CD player, and tilt steering wheel adjustment. Because this is a former police vehicle upgrades like a laptop stand, mounting points or a radio, and equipment storage solutions are also included.
Since quite a few of the first responder plugs are still intact, this SUV could work well for security or construction duty, allowing upfits to be installed with relative ease. A Pro-Gard divider for the rear cargo area is great for transporting a dog or heavy-duty equipment you don’t want to shift around.
Because it’s an Interceptor model, this Ford hits hard with a 3.5-liter EcoBoost V6 engine. While it delivers explosive power, if you drive more conservatively the engine is pretty light on the fuel, which is a nice balance. Also, the suspension is upgraded to increase handling capability for pursuits, plus it can take a serious beating. All-wheel drive and four-wheel disc brakes add further to the fun factor.
Because this SUV has a salvage branded title, you’re getting an amazing vehicle at a wonderful discount. Not too many people own these, making your ride quite unique. Make it into a special project car or just enjoy the amazing factory performance.
