The all-new 2020 Ford Explorer Police Interceptor is confirmed. Blue Oval already published some details on the official website. According to Ford, the new Explorer is coming in a Hybrid variant. On top of that, it will be the fastest police vehicle in the United States. The exact performance numbers are not available, yet, but Ford also claims the Explorer is having the fastest acceleration of all cop cars.
The 2020 Explorer Police Interceptor SUV offers a standard all-wheel-drive setup and Blue Oval will also offer new Police Interceptor Utility package. It will cost an additional $2,000 and it will add premium exterior and interior equipment. Besides the Police Interceptor Utility, a regular Explorer will arrive as well. It will offer a rear-wheel-drive setup as standard and it won’t largely depart from the Police variant.
2020 Ford Explorer Police Interceptor Engines
The upcoming 2020 Ford Explorer Police Interceptor comes with a hybrid drivetrain as standard. Moreover, the consumer version will be very similar to the Police one. However, Police Interceptor SUV comes with three engine choices. That includes the 3.3-liter V6, 3.3-liter V6 Hybrid, and 3.0-liter V6 EcoBoost. Hybrid drivetrain will be standard as we already wrote. Blue Oval is yet to release the exact specs of the engines. The 2020 Ford Explorer Police Interceptor will now become the fastest police vehicle in the U.S. The all-wheel-drive setup will be standard on the Police version, while the consumer ones will use rear-wheel-drive as standard.
You can find the ordering guide on the official Ford’s website. However, that guide does not include some performance and fuel economy numbers. However, Blue Oval did say the hybrid engine will be standard and it will show 40 percent of improvement over the current Interceptor Utility model. The current model provides 24 mpg combined so those figures will be over 30 mpg on the new model.
Exterior and Interior Specs
The utility model will offer more equipment than the consumer variant. The 2020 Ford Explorer Police Interceptor SUV offers a new $2,000 package that will add more standard equipment. That includes Ford’s new built-in modem, Bluetooth pass-through voice commands, and a rear view camera. From the outside, Explorer will gain LED headlights and more chrome materials. The interior will look very modern and the comfort is great as always before.
2020 Ford Explorer Police Interceptor Hybrid Price and Release Date
So far, we know the Ford’s newest SUV will arrive in two different variants. The consumer one will go on sale first, in the second half of 2019. The 2020 Ford Explorer Police Interceptor with hybrid powertrain will arrive slightly later than that. The price is still not available but expects the consumer version to come with more trims and more optional equipment.
