First presented at the 2017 New York International Auto Show, the new 2018 Ford Interceptor has been created to help the police service and law enforcement duty. It has been a combination of a tough design and fuel economy which serves best in dense city streets. The design may be available for civilians, too, but this has not been confirmed yet.
The new SUV 2018 Ford Interceptor is not a typical police vehicle and definitely not an ordinary one. We have been informed that its design will be pretty much upgraded, modern and unique compared to the 2017 models. What has caught our eye was the fact that the doors are wide opening which helps the access for the passengers. The door panels are simple while the door lock plungers are hidden and customized. It has also got a bigger grille. You can notice LED lights inside the head lights. There are 18-inch wheels and the rear spoiler traffic warning that has already been seen on the previous models. It will be available in various colors and two-tome versions.
When it comes to interior, we can say that the cabin of the new 2018 Interceptor can be described as safe, which is perhaps the most important feature for models like this. So the police officer, let’s say, will be protected and able to do his job. The driver’s seat will be adjustable in many ways. Communication equipment, spoken commands and hands-free voice call are just some of the features that this vehicle will provide. The lighting inside the cabin is white and red and the passengers will not be visible or noticed from outside the car. The steering wheel has an innovative design and there is a central console which offers many special options for performing the police job. The new Interceptor will as well be equipped with necessary technological facilities. It will have options such as sirens, speakers, lights, door switches of dog release etc.
The police car like the new Ford Interceptor has to offer the feeling of stability and safety to its driver and the passengers. This will definitely be the case with this model. It will provide more powerful and efficient engine than the previous model of this type. If you remember the 2017 Ford Interceptor, we remind you that it came with a standard 3.7-litre EcoBoost V-6 used on 2018 F-150, and 2019 Ford Transit, which provided 304 hp and 279 pound-feet of torque and the other version with a 3.5-litre EcoBoost V-6, 365 hp and 350 pound-feet of torque. So, you should expect nothing less from the new Interceptor either.
2018 Ford Interceptor Release Date and Price
Both the release date and the price have not been confirmed yet, but the expected starting price will probably be around $ 30,700 before options.
