The second largest US automaker has decided the top selling F-150 model should become even more enticing – it has now released a Special Service Vehicle package specifically developed for government fleet customers.
The F-150 Special Service Vehicle can be had in SuperCrew and SuperCab configurations when selecting the XL trim, with the new package designed to have the F-150 easier to maintain on the inside – easy-to-clean vinyl flooring will be present instead of the regular carpeting options. Additionally, Ford will axe the standard rear seats and replace them with a vinyl bench that should be very easy to wash. The modifications continue on the technical level with Ford ditching the alternator in favor of a high-output 240-amp unit that will be more suitable for prolonged engine idle times. Owners can also have a 40/blank/40 layout of the seats in lieu of the usual 40/20/40 configuration and the center section can be taken out to allow further customization options.
The Ford F-150 Special Service Vehicle can be ordered both with 4×2 and 4×4 drivetrains and power will be delivered via the 3.5-liter EcoBoost or bigger 5.0-liter V8 engines. Aside from the new F-150 Special Service Vehicle the law enforcement use range also includes the Explorer-based Police Interceptor Utility, Police Interceptor Sedan, Expedition Special Service Vehicle, Special Service Sedan and the Transit Prisoner Transport Vehicle.
