The 2013 police interceptor has 304 or 305 base horsepower depending on whether it is the sedan or sport-utility model, respectively. This number alone is 20 percent greater than previous models, which used a 4.6L 250-hp V8 engine.
Ford also offers its V6 EcoBoost engine, which delivers 365 horsepower and even greater fuel economy than the larger but lower-horsepower standard engine. The standard option offers 279 foot pounds of torque, which is an extremely important factor that actually moves the vehicle. All of this power is mated to an all-wheel drive system that makes either the sedan or utility models useful in all environments and climates.
