Being a police officer comes with many inherent risks, but the job sometimes provides the opportunity to drive some pretty awesome vehicles (that also can make the job a little safer).
Ford revealed its new 2018 F-150 and Expedition Special Service Vehicles, designed for law enforcement, government and fleet customers, in a press release Thursday. We have to say, the new vehicles aren’t too shabby.
“While our Police Interceptor Utility remains the best-selling law enforcement vehicle in the country by a large margin, some agencies need to haul five people with higher equipment-carrying capacity, or off-road capabilities are required,” Stephen Tyler, Ford police brand marketing manager, said in a statement. “That’s where the F-150 SSV and Expedition SSV come in.”
We know, we want one too.
Both vehicles come with 3.5-liter EcoBoost engines, although the F-150 can be upgraded to a 5.0-liter V-8 with a 10-speed automatic. Furthermore, the pickup is available in either SuperCrew or SuperCab configurations.
These vehicles just go to show that although police might have one of the toughest jobs, they also have some of the best cars.
