Car Crashworthiness Integral To Redesigned Police Cruisers

. By
Dearborn, MIFord Motor Company is rolling out a new style of police cruiser that it claims is faster, has better handling and exceeds the car crashworthiness of the Crown Victoria, which is going out of production late next year.

The new Interceptor is a front- or all-wheel-drive sedan based on the updated Ford Taurus and designed under the supervision of the automaker's Police Advisory Board, a group of current and former law enforcement professionals who provided input on safety, performance, durability, driver comfort and functionality.

"Police nationwide asked for a new kind of weapon in the battle for public safety, and Ford is answering the call with a purpose-built vehicle – engineered and built in America – that's as dynamic as it is durable," said Mark Fields, Ford's president of the Americas, in an official release.

The automaker promises that the new police cruiser has been engineered for the "highest level of crash worthiness and occupant protection," according to
