Default Ford's new police interceptors

Well here it is, the Crown Vic will no longer be in 2012, instead the new Taurus will replace it. Its gonna be as basic as possible, parts will be cheap but durable, might have cool features. Its supposed to have either the 3.5 duratec or 3.5 ecoboost.




Also, there is a Ford Fusion police interceptor concept, no pictures of it yet, but there is videos.

Plus there might be a few Explorers with police packages, or maybe Escapes, who knows.

i would drive the shit out of the taurus.. They were talking today at work that the crown vic wont be able to pass safety inspections in the next few years unless they re-vamp them... same thing with the chargers. Since they are uni body, once the frame is bent your screwed.

There has been the war between Chevy, dodge and ford the last 2-3 years to make a new police car.

At one time I think Toyota and Honda were trying to get cities and states to buy into something they had designed

Chevy's is cool. It's basically a G8 with chevy badges! Straight up from Australian car so seeing it unmarked is still a dead giveaway to an automotive enthusiats.. But the ford already has blown the chevy ppv out of the water with the taurus in just about all categories. ford ftw.

I think the new Caprice would turn out to be useless. Its great as a high performance 4d car, but I dont think they did a good job on turning it into a police interceptor. I do feel the same for the new Taurus, great car, not so great police car. The Fusion would be better, its got more interior space, bigger trunk, and if it had AWD with a 3.5 ecoboost, well then its game over. The best option would be to keep the crown vic and update it, but I heard it cant pass safety in the future, which is kinda BS, because that is the perfect police car. The CV P71 is simple the all time greatest police car ever built.

Ummmm..... you do know the taurus is a FULL SIZE car right? Not a mid size like the fusion....


Crown vic is way outdated man. The only reason the car is(err...was) still being built is because nobody else had a police spec vehicle out there. It was the only choice until dodge finally stepped in with the (though small and no visibility) Charger. And I'm sorry.....a 4500lb 230hp car just isn't cutting it anymore for staters...
