History

The following section is an excerpt from Wikipedia's Automotive Industries page on 1 April 2018, text available via the Creative Commons Attribution-ShareAlike 3.0 Unported License.

When the Ford Crown Victoria Police Interceptor (CVPI) ended production in late 2011, a variant of the sixth-generation Taurus was offered to police forces in early 2012 as a 2013 model. Ford is referring to the new police car simply as the "Police Interceptor Sedan", rather than a Taurus. The standard engine is taken from the Ford Mustang and not available on the non-law enforcement Ford Taurus. Its 3.72 L (227 cu. in.) aluminum block V6 engine weighed 40 lb (18 kg) less than the previous version. With 24 valves and Twin Independent Variable Cam Timing (TiVCT), it produced 305 hp (227 kW; 309 PS) and 280 lb·ft (380 N·m) of torque. The 3.7 L engine came with a new dual exhaust; gasoline mileage increased to 19 city/31 highway mpg. The EcoBoost model of the Ford Police Interceptor Sedan features the 3.5 L EcoBoost V6 from the SHO producing 365 hp (272 kW; 370 PS).[20] The Cyclone V6 and EcoBoost versions feature all-wheel drive, like the SHO. The Police Interceptor includes much of Ford's latest safety technology, such as Blind Spot Information System, rear view camera, reverse sensing system, and electronic stability control.[21] Ford states the Police Interceptor Sedan will match the safety record of the CVPI, and have desirable CVPI features unavailable on the Taurus like a column-shifted automatic added back in. In 2014, Ford offered the 4-cylinder engine from its non-law enforcement counterpart in the Police Interceptor Sedan as part of a Special Service trim designed for detective and administration uses.
