only the Indian government could do something about their obsolete and badly
styled police vehicles and take a cue from the likes of what Ford makes for the
US market. In just two years, Ford has revolutionised
the police vehicle market by equipping many of its police Interceptor lineup
with standard all-wheel drive, which works full-time for greater mobility and
security; adding more fuel-efficient EcoBoost engines; and introducing two new
body styles, according to a company statement.
police vehicle sales grew 48pc in 2013, while industry police sales rose 22pc,
according to Polk registration data. The Ford Police Interceptor utility was the
best-selling police vehicle in the United States in 2013.
Police Interceptor gained 9 points of market share in 2013 as sales rose 48pc,
according to Ford analysis of Polk registration data. Demand for Ford police
vehicles outpaced overall industry sales, which rose 22pc last year.
sales growth comes two years after Ford introduced two new body styles,
including a popular utility vehicle, made all-wheel drive, a full-time system,
standard equipment across most of its lineup, and rolled out high-performance,
but efficient EcoBoost engine options. The company now offers standard
all-wheel drive for Police Interceptor utility and sedan models, on vehicles
equipped with a 3.7-litre or 3.5-litre EcoBoost. The 3.5-litre EcoBoost V6
delivers 365hp of raw power and 474Nm of torque.
