Ford’s new hybrid powertrain boasts a 41% savings for police fleets.

The 2020 Ford Police Interceptor Utility is the first-ever pursuit-rated police utility vehicle with a standard hybrid engine. The 3.3L hybrid powerplant boasts an EPA-estimated rating of 9.8L/100 km (combined), which is a 41% improvement over the current Police Interceptor Utility equipped with a conventional 3.7L gas engine.

When police vehicles with conventional engines are parked, their engines must run continuously to power emergency lighting, radios, etc. Ford’s hybrid powertrain, on the other hand, allows the engine to shut off for extended periods, powering electrical equipment with an onboard battery.

“Our Police Interceptor Utility’s standard hybrid powertrain provides the potential for significant fuel savings with improved performance and no tradeoffs in safety or cargo space,” said Stephen Tyler, Ford police brand marketing manager. “It’s a win-win-win formula for law enforcement.”
