Ford today introduces the all-new Ford F-150, the reinvention of America’s favorite truck. It is the toughest, smartest and most capable F-150 ever – setting the standard for the future of trucks.

The all-new F-150 delivers an impressive combination of power, capability and efficiency – from advanced materials that improve durability and inhibit corrosion, to faster processors that enhance driving performance, to breakthrough cargo management and towing solutions.

“F-150 is well-known for being Built Ford Tough. Now, it is both tough and smart,” said Mark Fields, Ford Motor Company chief operating officer. “The all-new F-150 redefines the future of trucks, and it is yet another example of our One Ford plan producing vehicles that serve customers with a commitment to the very best quality, fuel efficiency, safety, smart design and value.”

F-150 is part of the Ford F-Series truck lineup, America’s best-selling truck for 37 consecutive years and America’s best-selling vehicle for 32 years.

“We have a unique connection with our customers,” said Joe Hinrichs, Ford executive vice president and president of The Americas. “Time and again, F-150 has delivered the tougher, smarter features they want along with the capabilities they need for work or play. We build our trucks to their high standards.”

Ford: New Engine choices for Interceptors

2013-10-16_233706

DEARBORN, Mich., Sept. 16, 2013 – At the request of police agencies looking to reduce fuel costs, Ford is launching a non-pursuit-rated Special Service Police sedan using the 2.0-liter EcoBoost® engine that produces 240 horsepower and 270 lb.-ft. of torque. This “special service police” vehicle will combine the durability of Police Interceptor sedan with the fuel efficiency of the 2.0-liter EcoBoost engine.

The EcoBoost engine should help make this sedan the first police vehicle to achieve 30 mpg or better in EPA highway ratings. The special service police sedan is a modified version of the 2.0-liter Ford Taurus that achieves 22 mpg city, 32 mpg highway and 26 mpg combined with the standard six-speed automatic transmission.

This same engine in Taurus gained notoriety as a Ward’s 10 Best Engines winner earlier this year.
“Not every police officer needs a pursuit-rated vehicle, and as agencies look to replace older, less-efficient V8-equipped cruisers with more efficient vehicles, Ford wants to offer the most fuel-efficient – yet still very capable – full-size police vehicle,” said Jonathan Honeycutt, Ford Police Marketing Manager.
While expected to be more fuel efficient than the 3.5-liter FWD, or the 3.7-liter AWD or 3.5-liter EcoBoost AWD variants, the new special service police sedan retains all the essential police DNA that goes into pursuit-rated Police Interceptor sedans including safety and durability features. Plus it is upfit-friendly and purpose-built. Commonality of parts also remains an integral part of this 2.0-liter special service police sedan.

To help achieve best-in-class fuel efficiency, the sedan will offer Active Grille Shutters that manage airflow to optimize the balance between engine cooling and aerodynamics.

The addition of the 2.0-liter EcoBoost engine means agencies will now have four choices of powertrains in the Police Interceptor sedan, including a V6 lineup that outperforms V8 engines of years past.

Police Interceptor sedan is also available with a 3.5-liter V6 with FWD, 3.7-liter V6 with AWD and the powerhouse 3.5-liter V6 EcoBoost engine with AWD – allowing police to choose the powerplant that best meets their patrol requirements.
