The new update of the Ford Police Interceptor Utility has to do with the model becoming even more visible from the back as it features a rear spoiler light fixture.
This police car can be very inconspicuous when it wants to – as the 2017 Ford Police Interceptor Utility (based on the Explorer) can go unnoticed when it needs to. There’s a “no-profile” front interior visor light bar and a new rear spoiler traffic warning – these can be used only when needed to get the attention. Ford has ditched the standard roof-mounted police lights in favor of signature red, blue, and amber lighting into the rear spoiler. So, when these warning lights are off, the passerby will have trouble identifying this as a Police Car. When in use, it will be perfectly placed to alert drivers of road and roadside situations.
“Aftermarket light bars can impede visibility by hanging down over the glass,” said Stephen Tyler, Ford police brand marketing manager. “Our full programmable rear spoiler traffic warning lights are integrated into the spoiler, so agencies get their bright red, blue, and amber LEDs with no compromise to rear visibility.” The new system also improves looks and ease of use. Ford calls them a “slick top,” meaning the vehicle can maintain full front and rear lighting capabilities without bulky roof fixtures. They are also programmable, so they can project other things besides the usual red, blue, and amber lighting.
