Next time you see someone speeding down a highway, they could be pulled over by a police officer driving one of Ford’s new F-150 Special Service vehicle.
The special pickup was developed for government and fleet customers and it is part of a family of Police vehicles that Ford already has. Basically an F-150 XL SuperCrew or SuperCab with two engine options, the 5.0-liter V-8 or the 3.5-liter EcoBoost V-6 in either 2 wheel or 4 wheel drive.
“Our lineup aims to fulfill the unique needs of law enforcement officers, and our F-150Special Service Vehicle is an extension of that offering. This vehicle definitely lives up to its Built Ford Tough reputation,” said
Arie Groeneveld, Ford chief program engineer for police vehicles.
The service vehicle package includes a 240-amp alternator
to run every police vehicle light under the sun. Need to light up the iconic police red and blue while listening to the radio, running programs on a laptop or two, and play your favourite tunes all at the same time? The high-output amp alternator has you covered.
To keep everything clean, the interior carpet has been replaced with vinyl flooring and the 40/20/40 seats removed
to allow for more storage space and maybe even put in a divider to give their K9 friend some private space.
If you want to get your hands on an F-150 Special Service vehicle, you’ll have to join the police forces.
