As Jake and Elwood said, a cop car needs a cop motor, cop brakes andcop suspension. As we speculated earlier today, the Police Interceptorwill get two powertrain options. The base model gets the 3.5-liter V6found in other Tauruses with over 263 horsepower and 250+ lb-ft oftorque. This naturally aspirated 3.5-liter engine is flex-fuel capableand gets 25-percent better fuel efficiency than the 4.6-liter V8 in theCrown Vic. The base models are available with either front- orall-wheel-drive. The top end pursuit version of the new PoliceInterceptor gets the full SHO powertrain including its 365-hptwin-turbo EcoBoost 3.5-liter V6 and all-wheel-drive as standard.

The Police Interceptor's brakes also have 60 percent more swept areathan a standard Taurus and 20 percent more thermal mass to help resistfade. While police officers have generally favored rear-wheel-drivecars for their handling characteristics, Ford officials claim the newlycalibrated stability control has been tuned to meet their needs.

Inside Ford has optimized the standard Taurus interior for PoliceInterceptor duty with new seats claimed to offer better comfort whileeasing egress with smaller lateral bolsters. They even have cut-outsfor police-issue utility belts. The transmission shifter has also beenmoved from the console to the steering column to make room for all thegear that today's officers require be mounted in the center. Ford haseven maintained the same nine-inch width between the seats to allowexisting equipment to be mounted from older Crown Vic Interceptors. Theswitches on the steering wheel can also be re-mapped to control extraaftermarket equipment like lights, sirens and spot-lights.

The Police Interceptor's back seat has a new roomier bench to makegetting prisoners in and out easier. The rear door panels have alsobeen slimmed down to make entry/exit easier and they swing out anextra-wide 71 degrees,10 degrees more than a regular Taurus.

The Taurus is not the only new Police Interceptor coming from Ford thisyear. Fields promised a second un-named vehicle, though did say itwould share most parts with the Taurus and be available in a utilityversion. That indicates it will be either the Flex or the new Explorer,both of which are based on the same platform as the Taurus.
