The new Ford Police Interceptor has received another engine option, with the American automaker adding a 3.7-liter twin independent variable camshaft timing (Ti-VCT) engine to the lineup pushing 305-hp and 279 lb-ft of torque.

The new 3.7-liter V6 has the highest horsepower and torque ratings of any naturally aspirated V6 engine for pursuit-rated sedans. In addition, the police fleet will receive reasonable fuel economy with 18-mpg in the city and 25-mpg on the highway. The 3.7-liter V6 engine choice joins the existing 3.5-liter V6 and 3.5-liter V6 EcoBoost options.

The all-new Police Interceptor was developed jointly with Ford’s Police Advisory Board of law enforcement professionals, who provided valuable input on important attributes on the vehicle including safety, performance, durability, driver comfort, and functionality. The vehicle is engineered to pass 75-mph rear-end crash testing and earned top safety ratings in the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration’s (NHTSA) new car assessment program.

“This combination of great performance and top-notch fuel economy means law enforcement agencies won’t have to compromise power or fuel efficiency while getting the job done,” said Bill Gubing, chief engineer for Police Interceptor.
