Video: Ford adds police version of Explorer SUV

Built to get at least a 20 percent gas-mileage boost over the Ford Crown Victoria

USA Today

DETROIT — Only months after showing off a police version of the Ford Taurus, Ford today is displaying the caped crusader's new companion, the police version of the new Ford Explorer.

It's called the "Police Interceptor utility vehicle" and like the Taurus, it's built to get at least a 20% gas-mileage boost over the Ford Crown Victoria, that mainstay police car and taxicab that's no longer going to be produced after 2011.

The new crossover SUV has a 3.5-liter V-6 engine that develops 280 horsepower and can run on E85 ethanol blend fuel. It has a six-speed automatic transmission and can carry up to 800 pounds of guns, ammo, suspects, K-9s or just about anything else police haul these days.
