Ford Teases New Police Interceptor for Chicago Auto Show

Ford will host the debut of a new Police Interceptor at the Chicago Auto Show next week, and while it won’t name it, it’s clear from the teaser that it’s based on the facelifted 2016 Explorer.

Revealed to the public at the 2014 Los Angeles Auto Show, the overhauled Explorer gets redesigned front and rear ends on the outside, and push buttons for the audio and climate controls along with fresh trims on the inside.

As far as the civilian 2016 Explorer is concerned, the biggest news under the hood is the smallest engine in the lineup, as the 2.0-liter turbo unit that was previously offered only with FWD, is replaced with the Mustang EcoBoost’s 2.3-liter turbocharged four with an estimated 270hp, which can be combined with all-wheel drive.

The current Utility Police Interceptor based on the outgoing Explorer is offered with a 3.7-liter Ti-VCT V6 and standard AWD and a 3.5-liter EcoBoost with optional AWD. We’ll soon find out what engines will become available on the new Interceptor.
