Ford plans to unveil the new Ford Police Interceptor on Friday, according to an internal Ford communication obtained by The News. The car will make its debut to an audience of law enforcement officials at the Las Vegas Motor Speedway.
As The Detroit News first reported last year, the new model will be based on the same platform as the new Ford Taurus . However, it will be built for law enforcement work and incorporate several modifications to meet the special needs of police officers.
The Ford Crown Victoria, which is assembled at Ford’s factory in St. Thomas, Ontario, will remain in production through September of 2011.
