Teased – Ford Police Interceptor image

The North American based automaker Ford is currently teasing out the new Police Interceptor which will make its public debut at the 2015 Chicago Auto Show, next week.

After finishing the unveil of the new Ford Focus RS generation, the car manufacturer is currently focusing on other vehicles and one of these is the Police Interceptor. According to the company, the model in question is not actually brand new but it is an updated variant of the utility vehicle, which is promising to be better in almost every way and to also get some new high-tech features.

The Ford Interceptor Utility version will be based on the facelifted version of the Ford Explorer, which is wearing the 2016 model year, and we can notice the red and blue light bar on the roof, the C-shaped fog lights and that overall appealing design. The model in question has been officially presented to the public during the 2014 Los Angeles Auto Show, in late last year.

It is coming with an updated front fascia, with new grille, restyled headlights and a new front bumper, along with new taillights and an updated spoiler. The interior design of the model is evolutionary too, with its new center stack and higher quality materials. Under its hood, we can notice the 2.3 liter EcoBoost four-cylinder unit, which has replaced the old 2.0L EcoBoost, producing a total output of 270 HP (201 kW) and 406 Nm (300 lb-ft) of torque. Chances are the updated Interceptor will be similar to this. Keep in mind that Ford is also offering an Interceptor Sedan, which is based on the Taurus.
