Ford Unveils First Police Pursuit Pickup

Law enforcement agencies now have another tool to chase the bad guys with the recent unveiling of the Ford F-150 Police Responder. With an efficient 3.5L EcoBoost engine providing top speeds up to 100 mph, the newest version of the F-150 lineup offers a capable chase vehicle with the ability to go off-road. Ford started with the F-150 FX4 off-road 4×4 and then added special enhancements to provide a safe and effective chase vehicle. “Ford’s 2018 F-150 Police Responder is the perfect all-terrain law enforcement vehicle,” according to Ford marketing manager Stephen Tyler. “Aside from its industry-first on-road pursuit capability, the purpose-built pickup can comfortably seat five, while providing capability in off-road patrol situations for officers in rural environments patrolled by sheriff’s departments, border patrol operations and the Department of Natural Resources.” Although private individuals can’t purchase the Police Responder, you can see and test drive the entire F-150 lineup at Chapman Ford in Scottsdale.

F-150 Overflowing with Innovation

The Police Responder is just another innovation from a truck that is overflowing with ground-breaking ideas. The all-new F-150 has a body that’s 700 pounds lighter than the previous version thanks to the use of high-strength military grade aluminum alloy. The twin-turbo V6, the same engine that’s in the Police Responder, is an efficient motor that offers 375 horsepower and best-in-class 470 pound-feet of torque. That gives the new F-150 the towing capability that beats all competitors. Pro Trailer Backup Assist is just another innovation that makes your driving life easier. Instead of trying to remember which way to turn the steering wheel to back a trailer into position, you simply turn a knob the way you want the trailer to move. It’s the simple things that make Ford special.

Many Trim Packages for Many Budgets

Starting at a little more than $27,000, the Ford XL is the perfect choice for someone who needs a work truck or the ability to haul an occasional load to the dump. The creature comforts really start to kick in when you get to the Lariat model, with leather trimmed bucket seats and 10-way power front seats that are heated and ventilated. The Raptor is the world’s most capable off-road truck, with an electronic locking rear differential, high output racking shocks and a torque-on-demand transfer case. The Raptor also comes with a standard 36-gallon fuel tank, giving you plenty of gas to explore the great beyond. For the ultimate in sophistication and luxury, consider the King Ranch, Platinum and Limited trim packages. You can compare a large selection of different models and cab configurations of the Ford F-150 when you visit Chapman Ford in Scottsdale.
