Ford F-150 Police Pickup Ready to Respond

Ford F-150 Police Pickup Ready to Respond”

Ford is well-known for its law-enforcement vehicles.

The new truck can hit 100 miles per hour, with its turbocharged V6 serving up 375 horsepower and 470 lb. -ft. of torque - "more than any other pursuit-rated police vehicle", Ford said in a statement.

The 2018 F-150 Police Responder joins Ford's Police Responder Hybrid Sedan, Interceptor Sedan and Utility, Expedition Special Service Vehicle, and Transit Prisoner Transport. The truck features best-in-class front and rear shoulder and hip room, as well as rear legroom.

Stephen Tyler, Ford's Dearborn based police brand marketing manager, said in the past, some police pickups were overlooked by agencies because they weren't police rated, meaning their acceleration, top speed, braking, crash durability and other specifications didn't meet police-pursuit standards.

"Aside from its industry-first on-road pursuit capability, this purpose-built pickup can comfortably seat five, while providing capability in off-road patrol situations for officers in rural environments patrolled by sheriff's departments, border patrol operations and the Department of Natural Resources", he continued.

To further toughen the truck for rigorous police work, Ford upgraded the brakes, front sway bar, 18-inch aluminum wheels and all-terrain tires. The good guys in front get to enjoy heavy-duty cloth seats with anti-stab plates, while the bad guys in back are treated to vinyl seats and flooring that make for easy cleanup.

The Responder, a F-150 four-wheel-drive, off-road model with a 3.5-liter EcoBoost V6 engine and 375 horsepower, is expected to be available for purchase in the spring of 2018. Skid plates are also installed on the underbody to shield from curbs, parking blocks and rough terrain.

The all-new 2018 F-150 Police Responder was made especially for law enforcers looking for a more versatile and capable patrol vehicle.
