The St. George (Utah) Police Department is spending $1.6 million to lease 35 Ford Police Interceptor Utility vehicles over a four-year term to replace its fleet of aging patrol cruisers.

The city, which approved the move in November, has rolled out the last batch of six cars. The vehicles replace older models that had odometers exceeding 100,000 miles. The city is using closed-end leases that include an option to purchase the vehicles for $1 at the end of the term, reports St. George News.

A Ford upfit kit is also installed, which includes specialized electrical components, speakers, LED lighting, steering wheel configuration switches and numerous other components that are sold as a separate kit. The city's Fleet Services Division handled the upfitting.
