Ford Police Interceptor Revealed Before Chicago Debut

Ford is teasing a new Police Interceptor ahead of the 2015 Chicago Auto Show.

The American automaker fully revealed its 2016 Explorer SUV at last year’s Los Angeles Auto Show. While much of the changes and upgrades made to the Explorer were geared towards consumers, many of them will also make lives easier for law enforcement, not to mention more comfortable.

The older 2.0-liter EcoBoost engine has been replaced with a larger 2.3-liter mill making 270 hp and 300 lb-ft of torque.

    Turbos are sweet…. they heat up every component within 15 feet..
    Super chargers are “free horsepower” as an auto dealer we passed on the purchase of most turbo junk… the exceptions were Volvo and Porsche… Saab was a maybe..

    Superchargers are not free horsepower but turbo chargers are because they run on exhaust gases. I personally do not find any validity in your comment but I do see someone that doesn’t know what he is talking about.
