Ford will offer a special service F-150 truck to law enforcement agencies for the 2016 model year that will compete with existing special service trucks from Chevrolet and Ram Truck. Ford will also offer a special service Expedition large SUV.
Ford is offering its Special Service Vehicle package with the SuperCrew and SuperCab F-150 XL models that adds a high-output alternator and easy-clean rear vinyl bench seating and flooring. The rear seat is swapped out for a vinyl bench for quick cleanup. The vehicle arrives without a center console, so agencies can add custom police equipment.
Ford will offer its special service F-150 with rear-wheel or four-wheel drive and two engines — the 5.0L V-8 or 3.5L EcoBoost engines.
A high-output 240-amp alternator replaces the stock unit to accommodate for extended idle times. Standard 40/20/40 seats are replaced with 40/blank/40 seats, with the center section deleted to create more space for customization.
In addition to its Police Interceptor Utility and Police Interceptor sedan, Ford also offers a special service sedan and Transit prisoner transport van to law enforcement agencies.
